The People I've Slept With - a promiscuous woman who finds herself with an unplanned pregnancy and needs to figure out who the baby daddy is...NOW. Angela Yang loves sex. She loves it so much she needs to make baseball cards of her lovers to help her remember where she's been. She doesn't think twice about her lifestyle until she finds out that she's pregnant. Her gay best friend, Gabriel Lugo tells her to "take care of it," but her conservative sister, Juliet persuades Angela to get married to the baby's father and lead a "normal" life like her. Angela listens to her sister, chooses to keep the baby, and goes on a quest to find the identity of the father by any means necessary. Written by
If you like the Hollywood mainstream romantic comedy with an ending you can guess in the first 5 minutes of the film and the standard white cast ala Matthew and Jennifer, then you should skip this film...but you'll miss out on something totally fun and original! Koji Steven Sakai has written a script with plenty of laughs and smile moments and the beauty of his comedy is the subtle messages (yes many) conveyed throughout starting with the first scene where we hear the film tagline, "A slut is a woman with the morals of a man." And FINALLY someone tells the truth about that age old double standard! Karin Anna Cheung's strong, confident performance is spot on and co-star Archie's Kao's charm creates a quasi role reversal of the man/woman stereotypes. And "Nice But Boring Guy" Randall Park has so many scene stealing laughs he becomes a star in his own right. The one drawback of the film is yet another stereotypical "gay friend" role, however, Wilson Cruz's performance was great and he has plenty of funny moments, so maybe that can be forgiven!
