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>

It's definitely a bizarre sex comedy!
29 March 2007 | by mario_cSee all my reviews

It's a typical teenage sex comedy film, except in one detail: it mixes to the plot, since the beginning until the end, some weird (sometimes extreme bizarre!) short videotape films (kind of "candid-camera") showing, mainly, animals doing the most absurd and odd things related to sex (animal sex)! This movie turns extremely bizarre and unique because of that… Who had such idea?! That's completely crazy!

Apart of that unusual "detail", it's just a "normal" teenage sex comedy that begins to be very funny, hilarious at parts, but which doesn't end so good… The ending could have been clearly better, because the last ten minutes have almost no fun and don't bring anything new to this genre. It's just a too predictable and conventional ending.

So, the "innovation" of this movie was actuality the odd "detail" of the short "candid-camera" films mixed in the plot!
