Silly, black (not dark) comedy about "booty" vs commitment.
26 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

I am almost embarassed to say I saw "Booty Call", but it was on Comedy Central last night, and I had some time to kill...

Basic premise - a guy has been going with a girl for 7 weeks and still has not gotten any, because he respects her and thinks she might be "the one". His girl also is very horny and asks her good friend (Lysterine) to join them on a double-date for safety, and she is fixed up on a blind date with Bunz. Bunz and Lysterine create immediate friction, but eventually, with the help of a dog licking toes under the table, they get set for some old-fashioned, no-commitment "booty."

However, both girls (two different adjacent apartments) want to practice safe sex, so the boys are sent out for "protection" at 2AM. They return with some, but the girls point out that "lambskins" don't protect against HIV, so they are sent out again, for "latex" condoms. Then they are later sent out for "saran wrap".

One of the boys is shot by an attempted hold-up of the convenience store, and there is an interesting hospital scene, no treatment for no insurance card, so one of them poses as a doctor to get him in. And, while he is at it, delivers a baby.

The script makes fun of lots of things, including Indians in turbans working at the store. It is not likely that much of the humor here will appeal to female viewers. I rate it "6" for the good acting and quite a few funny exchanges. See it if you can for free. After all, how do we recognize marginal movies unless we see some occasionally??
