Storyline

Luke and Sylvia are the very models of modern individuals in a metropolitan relationship. Enter Elena and Ronald, the free spirited polyamorous couple who are hellbent on getting Luke and Sylvia into bed. A fun slice of liberal San Francisco life told as a sex comedy, but much more sophisticated than a bedroom farce, YES WE'RE OPEN throws our unlikely heroes Luke and Sylvia into a hotbed of sex, jealousy, politics, sexual jealousy, sexual politics, sex and sex. And if they all play their cards right, there might even be some sex somewhere along the way. Written by Anonymous

Open for laughs
14 March 2012 | by scotterikssonSee all my reviews

Richard Wong's "Yes, We're Open" starring Parry Shen & Lynn Chen as a couple contemplating the adventure of having an open relationship, tackles the subject in a very funny way and yet manages to come full circle in the end to address the issue of an open relationship in a very serious manner without ruining all the humor that came before. Tackling the subject with two Asian-American lead actors in and of itself would make the subject matter fresh and original, but H.P. Mendoza's script is smartly written and doesn't attempt to go overboard trying to force the laughs. Parry Shen's comedic timing is spot-on and he understands that often less is more in a good comedy, like when he is greeted by a quick peck on the lips by Ronald (Kerry McCrohan) and tries to act "free spirited" by suppressing his shock with a simple "OH!." The kiss isn't necessarily funny, but Parry's face and his reaction are a laugh out loud moment. Parry also has the ability to constantly stick his foot in his mouth while smiling cluelessly throughout the film, constantly creating great, funny moments (the opening wedding scene speech is classic). Lynne Chen's wonderful performance is a great balance to Parry's abundant laugh moments and Sheetal Sheth and Kerry McCrohan are the perfect predatory, hot swinging couple out to seduce them. When a comedy can mix drama along with the laughs you end up with a film that is satisfying beginning to end and that's what you'll find with "Yes, We're Open." It should also be noted that Director Richard Wong didn't forget that he is a great cinematographer when making this film. There are many visually beautiful moments. If there is a drawback to the film, it's that it plays like a long scene from a bigger film. More time could have been spend developing the characters and their backgrounds so that the audience actually understands each better and perhaps connects and/or relates to the characters, but that still doesn't diminish the laughs.
