When "town slut" turned sex columnist Cassie Cranston returns for her mother's funeral it spices things up in the small town of Beaver's Ridge when a group of eccentric town folk, each with their own motives, convince her to plan an orgy.
How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town is about a group of friends who live in the picturesque town of Beaver's Ridge-the epitome of wholesomeness and strong family values. Their orderly life is interrupted by the homecoming of Cassie Cranston, whom they slut-shamed into leaving town when she was a teenager. Now a big-city sex writer, Cassie returns home to face an unwelcome reception by her former friends, and finds an opportunity to seek revenge by writing a book about them when they ask her if she'll help them plan an orgy.
At approximately 1 hour and 22 minutes in, as Cassie is setting up the ladder, you can hear a faint voice (of what can only be a crew member) whisper 'careful'. See more »

What is the appeal, here? I mean, you just die and then you do it all over again.
Yeah. That's what I like about it. When Mario dies, he doesn't rage against the world, he just picks himself up, goes back to the start and tries again, until he figures out how to save the Princess.

If your say, in your late teens or maybe early twenties you might just like this film. Younger people are easier to please in my experience. I'm sure that's the audience target because much over that age group and I think you'll probably be too sophisticated to find this film entertaining. The film is really let down by the script which is neither clever, insightful or funny, it's just juvenile. It's verbal Slapstick. The 'plot line' and I use the term advisedly, doesn't quite hold up or ring true. It contradicts itself as does the characters. With a better script and direction it could have been far better. I'm not sure what it was trying to say,I expect nothing.
