Heavy on raunch, light on humor, bad on all levels.
Not much to say about a movie like this. It's almost as if some High School buddies got together, wrote a script and tried to pass what they're doing in the film off as comedy. This movie is extremely juvenile. I don't care if you turned your brain off and just wanted to have a good time, this "film" isn't the one to do it with. Filled with pages upon pages of scatological humor and just plain raunchy to the nth degree, this one misses on all cylinders.
The movie starts off with Tyler (Prokop) driving and receiving a voice mail from his girlfriend. Even though we see Tyler, we hear Dick (Wayne). Dick is Tyler's friend and for some strange reason, the writer/director has Dick as the narrator. It's something that will confuse you the whole movie. Every time I saw Tyler on screen with the voice over, I thought it was his thoughts, but they were actually Dick's. Tyler goes to the bar to drown his sorrows and runs into his buddies, the aforementioned Dick and Tom (Dauplaise). Dick is worried about his... well, dick... and asks the guys to check it out for him. Yes, right there in the middle of the bar. Apparently, he peeved off another woman last night, got roofied and she did something to his member. Tom obliges and sees that there's a tattoo down there but he can't read it because he got the tattoo while he was hard -- so he has to get hard in order for them to read what the tattoo says. That's just a taste of what you're in for least you decide to rent or buy this one. Long story short, they decide to go to Aspen to do some cougar hunting. Tom eyes a real estate aficionado at the bar, Dick tries to land an über-cougar (Angel) and Tyler falls in love with a girl named Penelope (Murray), who's about the same age as him but not before agreeing to go to a benefit with Linda (Blazak, the writer/producer/director) and Kathy (Boyle) first.
The movie is just plain bad, folks. I'm not a prude in any sense of the word nor I did I get offended by any of the material shown. Yes, it was extremely raunchy, disgusting and downright dumb -- and in the right hands, it might have actually even been funny. But, it's not even the slightest bit funny at all. Perhaps it was the extremely bad acting that made watching this one as comparable to rusty razor blades on a chalkboard. Maybe it was the sophomoric script that tried way too hard to be young and hip? And how about the fact that some of the story makes no sense whatsoever? Yes... it was all of those things and more. The only bright spots in the movie are Vanessa Angel (maybe she thought this was similar to Kingpin?) and Lara Flynn Boyle (although she didn't have much to do).
I just loved how the guys arrive at Aspen and decide they need jobs, so they head down to a restaurant called The Artisan and three employees are fired as they walk out. How about the fact that Tom gets everything he dreams of and then for no reason whatsoever the story line is abandoned with zero explanation. The ending comes straight out of a romantic comedy cliché and at the same time is anti-climactic and just too silly for words.
