Cast overview, first billed only:
Seven #2
Seven #3


After the vice-president's resignation over a scandal, senator 'Kay Bee' Hartmann is first in line to succeed him. The only likely skeleton in her closet is teenage daughter Ashley, on spring-break with her sorority in Texas's wild-reputed San Padre Island, trying to act cool in a desperate attempt to win back studly boyfriend William, who dumped her for a popular party animal. So the senator sends nerdy junior assistant Becky St. Germaine as chaperon. Becky takes along her former college friends, all refused by sororities and meeting for an annual joint holiday. For once it won't be tame but frightfully exciting, making up for their wasted wild years, joining the party scene with their libertine motel host and the Seven, a group of popular airheads who adopt the dog coach from the adult bunch as dance coach. One 'old' girl even attempts to seduce the hottest frat boy, gentleman Todd, which seems to work. Written by KGF Vissers

Surprisingly Hilarious
5 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Reading some of the comments on the message boards here I was expecting this movie to be a complete letdown - but when I watched it I could not stop laughing! It has officially become my new favourite movie.

I don't know what all the hate here is about, maybe it's because a movie of this kind has never really been around before. I am at a loss to name another completely female driven comedy. Plenty of comedies will have one or two actresses in the lead, but there will be a lot of supporting male characters. This one was almost ALL women - with the exception of Seth Meyers, Justin Hartley and the brief appearance of Will Arnett - and it worked. All of the actresses delivered very funny performances (especially Missi Pyle) from a quirky and lovable script.

The charm of this film, to me, seems to be in its subtle feminist message: accepting who you are, female success in the public sphere, the strength of female friendships and breaking gender roles. Light-hearted though it is, each of the lead characters face a challenge as their attempts to be more 'fun' conflict with their feminist values and who they knew themselves to be.

Missi Pyle proposed that this film missed a theatrical release because of its all-female cast and lack of a big-name actor to get the studios behind it, and I have to agree. Everyone I've recommended this film to has loved it and I think it's a shame that a comedy celebrating female dorkiness hasn't been widely accepted and successful.

I highly recommend this film to anyone with an open mind or a love of female-centred comedy.
