There are no big statements made, no wider generational revelations that we haven't seen in countless other rude comedies, but the cast members' chemistry and its refusal to go straight-up formulaic make it an interesting diversion.

It's the movie equivalent of a one-night stand, that's all: fun, but nothing special.

Unable to decide whether to pitch their story as chastely sweet or ridiculously raunchy, filmmakers Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck end up with something that just lays there flacid.

You don't review a movie like "A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy." You autopsy it.

Jason Sudeikis, mildly annoying in small doses, turns out to be greatly annoying in large ones, as our hero.
