Storyline

A strictly monogamous man stops to help a stranded female with a broken down car. In gratitude she offers oral sex, when he reluctantly accepts. However, just as they get involved, the cops arrive and it turns out that the woman is a known prostitute. The man is arrested and is forced to call his wife at 3 AM to bail him out. A few days later he is evicted from his home by his wife. His best friends question how he could have been so naive. Meanwhile his wife and her friends plan their own night out with full sexual plans. Meanwhile the men decide that an apology is at hand. Arriving home, instead of his wife, he finds his mother-in-law. Eventually the guys, girls, and mom all end up together in a night club that brings all the events to a head.

But a lot of painful viewing
1 January 2000 | by guybSee all my reviews

This movie was very painful to watch. The plot was not new, the acting was on par with average TV sitcoms and the characters were not very likeable. This could have been boiled down to a half hour wednesday night on ABC and not wasted my time. I rented this video based on "two thumbs up by Siskel and Ebert
