Andy and his three nerdy mates are graduating A-students, but feel they missed out on juvenile fun and make a pact to catch up with love - and party life during the summer before each attending another ivy League college. 'The lion' is first to score via his dojo job as martial arts sensei. Andy's job as country club junior tennis coach however is perfect to earn a pretty penny from private lessons, often actually in wealthy bored women's beds, which gets him exposed to the senior staff after driving naked to avoid an early-returning husband catching on. Andy still dreams of true love with an Indian Internet BFF whom he promises to pay for a ticket so they can meet at last.Written by
The film is, for all intents and purposes, watchable.
This is where you ask, "Then why did you give it a 3 out of 10 and say it's not worth my time?" To which I reply, that is the truth.
The film is something that you can watch to pass the time but honestly even then it's not really worth your time.
My main complaint against this film would be the scripting and directing. The two give no build up or growth to the story they are trying to tell. It feels like scenes just slapped together to get to the end of the story with no emotion, plan or entertainment to it. The situations themselves do seem like they could have a decent pay off but cause there was no build up, it falls flat on it's uninspired face. And this is all the more frustrating as the idea (though not entirely unique) seems like it could be interesting.
The actors put up an 'okay' performance but are entirely underwhelmed by the poor writing of the script. Thus their characters are not fun to follow, they have pointless character arcs and even worse dialogue.
But my advice to you would be this, watch the introduction of the film as we are introduced to the characters and their world, that essentially is the tone of the whole movie and if you're like me, by the time the title card comes on, you'll know this movie is going to be a waste.
