Comedy
Jason Sudeikis stars as an aging party boy who manages to persuade his little circle of friends to close out their summer with a 60s-style fuck fest, though his own commitment to the idea begins to waver when he meets the woman of his dreams. After this clever sex comedy screened for the local press, several of my colleagues made a point of announcing how much they hated it. This shouldn't have surprised me: few reviewers I know have participated in an orgy, but the profession is naturally geared toward gang bangs. Though several recent mainstream comedies have questioned the social taboo against promiscuity (Hall Pass, Easy A, The Freebie), this is the only one I recall that doesn't cop out at the end with a warm endorsement of monogamy. By accident or design, the resolution here is morally ambiguous and vaguely distasteful, which may be the reason I liked it. Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck directed their own script; with Leslie Bibb, Will Forte, and Martin Starr.
