The phrase used in the movie "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" was coined by Australian writer Irina Dunn but later popularized by feminist Gloria Steinem. One of Steinem's book is seen in Brandy's room later in the film. The line is also used in the U2 song "Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World." See more »

Tasteless Raunchy Sex movie without even a nipple showing...
28 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I could never get all these movie that have heavy talking about sex, like sperm swallowing etc. and they never showing a female nipple.

So in this movie too, you get the 99% of the dialogs being about handjobs, and blowjobs and backdoors and pussy licking etc. and you can hear the sound, see the moves, the awkward positions, you even see the glitchy semen in the hand of the girl or in her mouth BUT there is absolutely no nudity.

It's very very pretentious...if you ask me. A bad choice that makes an uneven film.

Here you have a female screenwriter/director who (not surprisingly) didn't do anything after this crap, and who she employed her husband (and father of 3 Bill Hader) as the star.

The whole film is very diminishing about women and treats her with a manner, even worst than whores. All of the "sex" scenes are disturbing and trying to force some laughs from the awkwardness of showing some (parent, friend, nephew, coworker) walking right during the act, wherever the place and whenever the time.

There is also no meaning in this. No moral about friendship, or feelings, or parenthood, or marriage, or education or ...nothing.

Overall: An empty shell of a movie. If you want tips like "Let your one-night stand lover drink pineapple juice so his sperm will taste sweet when you swallow it" than this is the movie for you. Otherwise...
