A dark comedy about an eclectic group of strangers invited to a downtown bar by a mutual ex-lover, Nikki Franklyn, a maddeningly sexy, unpredictable and possibly insane young woman who's recently gotten out of prison for murdering her last ex-boyfriend. The party really gets started when Nikki herself arrives, hauling her latest lover and fiancee, the morally challenged lawyer who'd been handling her case. She's mysterious about her intentions and her current and former lovers soon realize they are all caught in one of her brilliant, mischievous mind-games with possible deadly consequences. By the night's end, revenge will be had, new romance will bloom, and Nikki will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius.Written by
At one point in the film, Seth Green's character Zach talks about sitting at home alone eating a "six dollar burger". Seth Green starred in a Hardee's commercial advertising their new "Six Dollar Burger". See more »
When Nikki hands the glass of champagne to Zachary it makes a lot of foam. In the next shot the foam vanishes. See more »
I must admit; with the likes of Michelle Trachtenberg, Katee Sackhoff, Seth Green, Harold Perrineau and Billy Baldwin, I expected this film to be considerably better. That being said; I found the plot intriguing, the acting exquisite and the actors engaging. The writing could have been (a lot) better - the finale a tad more climactic but I ultimately enjoyed the character interactions enough to say: I liked it.
Would I recommend this enough to spend $20? Probably not, but when it goes down a little in price, then yes – I would recommend it. (If only to watch Michelle, Katee, Seth, Harold and Billy interact.)
One question to anyone else who has watched "Sexy Evil Genius": did I hear Michelle's character; Miranda refer to Seth's character; Zachery as "Seth" (about 12 ½ minutes into the film)? And then later on when Katee's character; Nikki arrives also refer to Zachery as "Seth"? Or was it just me?
