Storyline

Tom plans to surprise Sara with an engagement ring, and he's asked his four best friends to witness the popping of the question at his place on Valentine's night. Trouble is Sara's left him a "Dear John" letter and will be by soon for her suitcases; plus, thinking it's a party, Tom's friend Sal has invited five women who were at his bar to come too. First the men talk - about women, sex, love, and homophobia (Tom's pals include a happily married guy, a gay man newly engaged, a metrosexual, and Sal, an inveterate player). Then the women arrive and argue in the loo about men and sex before joining the boys for talk, alcohol, and hookups. But what of Sara, and what of love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Debbie: No Laura, Rachel tells them the truth, not what they want to hear but the actual truth. And I think that's pretty admirable considering the fact that culturally as women we're conditioned to lie.
Laura: What are you talking about?
Katherine: Yeah, I've got to hear this.
Debbie: Alright fine listen, you know how a man if he has sex with like a hundred women he's considered a stud, but if a woman sleeps with like ten guys she's considered a whore, so how the hell does a woman not start feeling like she has to lie with the...

Quick witted and extremely funny
20 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK this is my first review and I have seen tons of movies. I found this movie to be so much more than I expected and a breath of fresh air from the usual movies I see. Maybe we could get more directors to do things that are creative and take a chance. because I am in introspect now is why I comment on this movie. It was a blast. A movie filmed like a theatrical play. Great stuff. The actors and the acting witty. I am a guy and I think this is how we men bond period when we hurt as well as when we celebrate. The women talk just like some of my girlfriends and all in all they are just like us guys. I would assume we all have friends in these characters. Its a fun ride to watch. See it.......!!!!!!!!!.
