Look, all our problems revolve around your geriatric loving loser creep of a friend. And as soon as you outgrow him, the sooner you'll be to reaching your potential.
Just enough with Hogan, please.
No. No, Spencey. If you spend the rest of your life associating yourself with that vermin, you will become that vermin.

Spencey, I love you, I just want what's best for you.

An interesting plot flops due to poor writing & acting.
Intrigued by the cover art & abstract, I picked up this title at the bargain bin in some super-mart store. I was prepared for the usual straight-to-DVD quality with toilet humor, lots of flesh, and the whole "American Pie meets National Lampoon" style experience.
Instead, I was brutally disappointed. The movie stuttered along unevenly. The jokes (if you can call them that) never crackled nor was there any witty banter. The scenes were disjointed while also being ridiculously transparent. And the characters, from the protagonists to the love interests & even the bit players/cameos were sadly one-dimensional. Some characters would disappear from the film almost entirely to simply reappear without explanation later.
Probably worst of all, the movie fell short on its seductive promise. Aside from 1 or 2 very short exceptions, the cougars themselves were left out of the movie. Very lacking for a "guilty-pleasure" style movie. At least show us some action.
Overall, a very poor showing. I feel bad for some of the actors/actresses, since they were certainly victims of lackluster writing, and lame attempts at humor. You'd be better off going with almost any of the other titles in the genre that promise lots of women in skimpy clothing.
