Storyline

While traveling to be the groomsmen in the wedding of their friend Scott, the wolf Dewey proposes two bets to his monogamist friend Jay: if he had sex along the weekend he would give his valuable convertible car to Jay; and if Jay did not score any woman in the same period, he would date Jay's sister. They arrive in a huge property with their loser friend Phil, and the trio is introduced to the bridesmaids. When Jay meets the fiancée Reese, he realizes that she is his former sweetheart and passion. Along the weekend, the bets and the love of Jay for Reese gets the guests into very complicated situations. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

slim slice of pie
24 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The lame romantic comedy "What Boys Like" is like a warmed-over helping of "American Pie." In the film, three numbskull buddies indulge in boring sexual hijacks at their friend's wedding. The tale is narrated by Dewey, the typical frat boy misogamist who regales us with his oh-so-clever "Rules of Man," the purpose of which is to instruct the male of the species on the fine art of nailing as many babes as possible without getting hooked in the process. Dewey makes a bet with his friend, Jay - who, for some strange reason, seems obsessed with having long term relationships - that the latter will not be able to score a one night stand during the weekend, while Jay makes a counter bet that Dewey will not be able to forego sex for the same 48-hour period. However, things get really complicated when it turns out that Jay is actually in love with the bride-to-be, his old high school sweetheart whom he's never entirely gotten over.

Needless to say, the script employs a series of predictable plot complications, misunderstandings and sexual perversity's to generate its humor - which would be fine if any of it were clever or funny. As Dewey, Alex Nesis provides a certain manic energy that almost makes the concept work. Nevertheless, even he emerges as a pale imitation of the wonderful Stifler from the "American Pie" films. And this leads us to the basic question as to why one would order this low-cal substitute when the real thing is so much tastier.

Here's an interesting side item about the film: since the film's release on 2/27/2004, "What Boys Like" has amassed a whopping $955 in B.O. revenues, which, at an average ticket price of $6, means that the film was seen by roughly 160 people across the United States and Canada during its limited theatrical release. After one factors out relatives and friends of those involved in the production, who does that leave?
