Four people get a crash course in the difference between love and desire in this independent drama. Ellis (Kuno Becker) and Renee (Eliza Dushku) are a young couple who've grown tired of one another, and though they're still in love, they aren't sure how to reignite the spark in their relationship.

Suffering from what could be called Garden State syndrome, Sex and Breakfast demands that we empathize with the anguish of straight, white, financially privileged young people and their significantly hot significant others.
Despite an attractive cast and a few nice moments, Sex and Breakfast is just not that exciting.
Turgid and pointless.
The only thing shameful about Sex and Breakfast is its unwillingness to get really shameful.
And lest you're curious about the title: There is actually more time given to breakfast in the film than to sex.
The four restless young bedfellows talk lots and communicate little in trite and stagy digressions; even when they strip off their shirts, they're still emotionally clothed.
Don't be duped by the steamy-sounding premise, for this dud manages to turn the prospect of swinging into a dull and decidedly antiseptic affair.
Along with his insights into love and tedium, writer-director Miles Brandman makes sure that a lot of mopey mumbling and guitar-strumming fills the soundtrack.
