Another young adult sex comedy with no surprises, but good actors. It's not too bad, but it isn't good either.

Oddball, likable comedy about two single girls who go hunting for men at a health resort. I like Lea Thompson the best because of her sexy naked scenes - whoo!

Adapted from a play, we meet Stacy (Lea Thompson) and Melissa (Victoria Jackson) on the dark backdrop of a theater stage. These two sensible women lead us through their sexual histories before embarking on the matter at hand - they need to avoid any more casual sex in an age when it's become dangerous due to a barely mentioned fear, HIV. So they head down to a health resort to meet healthy guys and always use condoms. Stacy has her eye on a trainer named Nick, while Melissa's got a crush on resort employee Jamie. Meanwhile, their fellow guest Vinnie (Andrew Dice Clay) makes his best New Jersey attempt at Stacy, and a self-centered psychologist decides to utilize Melissa. When Melissa decides to bail and heads for the bus station, Stacy takes Nick back to L.A with her to meet her. But Jamie rescues Melissa from the bus station, and Stacy ends up realizing life outside the resort with Nick is not la vie en rose. Armed with a grand pink cadillac, Stacy rushes back to the resort and meets a newly sensitive Vinnie, and ends up giving him a lift back prior to getting rid of Nick. Who would've guessed they'd both find their soulmates at a health spa?
Born into the AIDS scare era in 1988, this film has little left to recommend it. Several scenes actually play like a public service announcement, and it's a shame that these two comediennes have to be toned-down in order to promote the film's blaring message. The 80s strike back in their full glory of hair-dos, clothes, and music, and the story is so contrived as to be uninteresting. And doesn't it strike anyone as odd that the employees keep hitting on these women?
Overall, an outdated, predictable and downright laughable film about two women abandoning casual sex for true love that fails to rise above being a filmed version of a mediocre stage play.

That poster had me hooked. As for the film, it's pretty routine.

Lea Thompson (Back to the Future) and Victoria Jackson have some chemistry together and occasionally have moments where their charm and sex appeal are let loose, but overall they're stuck with two bland roles. Andrew Dice Clay stands out as a funny broad New Jersey stereotype, and seeing Jerry Levine pop up as a romantic interest is disconcerting in a humorous way. Unfortunately, aside from a few scenes that attempt to but barely begin to probe the fears and tragedy of AIDS and disease, Casual Sex? pretty much plays out like a typical chick flick. I can't even remember the last R rated film I saw that was so tame.

Not a bad movie... You felt for the main characters about the difficulty of finding someone to date. Based on this, it should get at least an average rating, but then at the end, when I asked myself if I was really entertained, I then had to lower my rating a bit.

Dice? Come on. I think the answer is 'No.' The only thing funny about Andrew Dice Clay is the Sklar Brothers' routine about him.

I saw this when I was a little kid, before I really understood what sex was. . .I remember thinking I was gonna get a really good education about sex or something, better than my Catholic school provided and I was so disappointed.

Lea Thompson, Victoria Jackson (of SNL fame), and Andrew "Dice" Clay... good cast for an 80s movie. It's a funny and cute movie. Not great, but a really good movie nonetheless.

This movie made me fall in love w/ Andrew Dice Clay, and that is no easy task! It's funny, and it's one that kind of hits close to home for a lot of people.

Only if you lived through this era would it make much sense at all and even that fact is a little scary. I have fun watching it every time, though.

Here is a good rule to live by.....stay away from any movie staring Victoria Jackson.

Not great but not terrible, Andrew Dice Clay was pretty awesome in it.

A surprising good move, considering the title. I saw it before I had ever heard of Andrew Dice Clay. Every time he is on the screen the film is great. Whenever he is not on the screen the film is good. I predicted he would be huge. I was half right.

They tried something new, and it almost worked but ultimately fell short. I had to see it after meeting Victoria Jackson.

Ok 80s sex comedy from female perspective. Andrew dice c
lay is actually kind of funny in it.

A very cheesy, dated 1980's Sex Rom Com that lacks substance. It's an easy watch but it's pretty ordinary.

The only decent actor in the whole production is Lea Thompson and the rest tend to get irritating.

Basically the story of 2 sexually frustrated women trying get the right guy, it's a useless film really that's just cheap entertainment it's no Mona Lisa Smile. Nothing horrible but nothing great either....
