Enjoyable "Swingers" clone .......
31 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the seductive teenybopper pose of Kari Wuhrer on the DVD cover might lead some to believe "Do it For Uncle Manny" was "sexploitation", that is not what this film is about. It is closer to a comedy along the lines of"Swingers", and only contains a smidge of nudity. The first half is laced with familiar male insecurities, and everything up until the unbelievably contrived ending is good. Adam Baratta in a certain way reminds me of a young Burt Reynolds, and delivers a solid performance, as does the rest of the cast. Basically it is the story of Uncle Manny's Rolex watch swiped by Kari Wuhrer, and the quest to get it back. This leads to a bunch of misunderstandings and funny situations. Recommended, but the unsatisfying ending drags it down a notch. - MERK
