Storyline

Cooper and Ed are brothers: Coop acts, in ads and soaps, spending his real energy chasing women for one-night stands. His younger brother Ed, an earnest young man, works in an ad agency. For the past year, since finding his girlfriend in bed with another man with a video camera running, Ed has been in a funk: he's carried a torch, his social life has tanked, and his work has suffered. Ed will be fired on Monday unless he can save a major account. It's his birthday weekend: he wants to work, but Cooper wants Ed to rediscover his sex life. Cooper works hard to help Ed score, but disaster piles on disaster. Can a decent guy save his job and get a life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Overexceeded my expectations of a crass movie by being so crass it was bright and funny
3 February 2006 | by johno-21See all my reviews

I saw this at the 2006 Palm Springs International Film Festival. I don't know how they let this sneak into the festival but it somehow got accepted and was one of the weekend late night screenings. I normally would have passed on a film like this but it was a late night showing and I like going to the late night screenings so what the heck. Barely had the opening credits ended and people were already walking out on it. I thought, wow, if people think this is so distasteful that they are were walking out already I need to see this through. This was actually a nice relief from a lot of the heavy and somber art films I had been seeing. This is a movie not a film. It's tasteless, crass, sophomoric and relies on bathroom humor and sex jokes. And it's pretty funny too. This is so intentionally over the top that it's quite fun. Cooper and Ed are both funny and charming. The characters they meet throughout the film, people who are on screen for just a minute or so, are more interesting and have more character development than many characters in sophisticated serious movies. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to just anyone but I wouldn't mind seeing it again. I'd give this a 7.0 out of a possible 10.
