In high school, three girlfriends decide to make a secret pact with each other to wait to have sex, save themselves until they feel the time is right, despite an aggressive plan from the opposing sex. Written by
This is a teen sex comedy, similar in feel to American Pie, but with a subtle Canadian flavour. This is one genre of film that Canada seems to do well with over the decades. In this one, at high school, a group of virgin girls discover that the boys are interested in them only because of a list in a "bang book" which supposedly will help them win their football games. So they organize to withhold sex until the season is over. I expected the film to be either overly preachy or overly lewd, but it chose a middle path, combining sexual humour with a literal feel-good story. Don't get me wrong... there are the expected gross-out scenes, and the expected serious messages. But they don't beat you over the head with them. Manitoba seems an unlikely place where this film would be made, but they obviously know something about film-making there. While this gives me hope for Canadian film, which so often disappoints me, I wonder if these particular skills will be applicable to more serious film fare. Still, I look forward to seeing what they do next.
