Three couples head to the desert to help their friend (David Krumholtz) heal after the death of his mother. But when they learn that his idea of healing is asking to sleep with his best friends' girlfriends - at the same time - his ludicrous request creates fallout amidst the entire group. A hilariously dark comedy about the things we do for friends in need, also starring Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Knighton, Melanie Lynskey, Ahna O'Reilly, and Jason Ritter. (c) Tribeca

"The Big Ask" is a premise in search of a movie, one that co-directors Thomas Beatty and Rebecca Fishman never quite find.
The Big Ask is obviously not the feel-good movie of the year, but it sure feels awesome to watch such a good movie. There's more than one way to skin a sex comedy.
The Big Ask begins with a loose cannon of a premise, but the resulting damage is precise in its effect and power.
Explores deep psychological questions by wrapping them in the promise of unusual sexual hijinks
It features a central protagonist who's simply not likable, supporting characters who serve as little more than plot devices for its lead, and a flat tone that somehow seems to soften even its most likable stars.
Beatty and Fishman botch their third act payoff, but The Big Ask remains a compellingly exploratory odyssey into desperate acts of communication, with a side of sexual awkwardness.
