Follows the relationships between a gay man and his girlfriend, a suffering married couple, three roommates, a pair of reunited ex-lovers and a grandfather who decides to celebrate his birthday in the company of an attractive young woman.
María Cristina Peña y Lillo
Matt spends the night with a girl in an elevator during power outage in a girls' college dorm. He never sees her. Waking up in the morning, panties are all that's left of her. How does he find her in a building with 100 girls?
On a Tuesday night, five couples have separate sexual adventures. Matt and Kris, friends for years, want to have an only-once, no-strings good time. Abby and Andrew, married, celebrate his birthday, but it's marred by angst and miscommunication. Mia and Eric are exes, making sure they are over each other. Jaime and Ken work together and this is a first date. Inez and Gord invite his roommate, Dave, to join them. By the time each couple has gone through a prelude, foreplay, sex, an interlude, orgasm, and afterglow, they've answered basic questions: can sex be anonymous, are we bored, is our marriage really finished, does anyone tell the truth, and how do we make someone happy?Written by
I was lured into this movie by its promiscuous title, yet was highly reassured that I should avoid judging books by their cover. This time, there are no hidden clues. The title gives it all away. That's all this movie is about. "F*** is just a f***", says one lacking-content character to another. The movie overwhelms the not so innocent viewer with filthy and not so filthy sex from head to toe, hoping that this will prevent him from seeing through the fog of moans and sweat, into the void.
At first, the characters seem promising. The situations are all too familiar and make you feel like it's a real-life tale of love and lust. You become curious, eager to see what happens. What's the end of this version to the story that each and every one of us saw, heard or thought of. Soon the illusion is shattered. The story lines hit a dead end even before the foreplay's over. Every development, minus some mildly surprising yet equally uninteresting kinky stuff, is banal and not fulfilling.
It's funny, at times. You're entertained by the nudity and sex, because that's the lowest common denominator for us humans and our sense of humor. But laughing makes you feel like a 13-year-old watching his first porno. The non-stopping sex and beautiful actresses will keep you watching this movie, but it won't be worth it. Somewhat distinct from the cliché notion of sex, this movie has a promising beginning but a disappointing end. Unlike sex, for this movie the process isn't any good either.
Let me save you some time and money by giving you the Cliff's notes on this one. Sex changes things. And it feels nice. So if you're not too keen about spending an hour and a half watching young people purposelessly f***ing, and you didn't find the punchlines any surprising, maybe you should reconsider watching the movie.
