Codirected by sisters Cecilia Hyoun (who stars) and Sara Hyoun (who scripted), this anemic comedy (2002) strives to be bawdy but squanders every comic opportunity its threadbare premise affords. The young heroine sublimates her sexual energy into obsessive bowling while her randy pals—none of whom seems to have a job or any other interests—prowl the singles scene. Movies like There's Something About Mary and the entire Austin Powers franchise have goosed the market for low comedy and there's no reason why women filmmakers shouldn't join in the fun, but effective vulgar humor requires situations that build and performers who can act. The Farrellys have nothing to fear from the Hyouns. 80 min.
