If you loved sex comedies from the 1980s, this one's for you
If your version of sex ed included movies like Revenge of the Nerds, Porky's, and National Lampoon's Vacation, you'll feel right at home. The plot take a couple of ordinary outsiders, antiheroes that ring true, and brings them together as allies through luck and circumstance. It's got a bit more heart than the predecessors I mentioned, and there is both the laugh-out-loud shot in the arm of a budding bromance whose moments of honest self-discovery are offset by the less subtle if more gratifying scenes of hot twins in a hot tub. Lest you mistake this for a vehicle for gratuitous boob shots, the writing and dialogue add a clever twist to old tropes, with a bitingly funny scene stolen by a mob boss with landscaping troubles. A great film to end a long day after work where you are looking for a laugh.
