Movie Info

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) Tribecamore

Top Critic

"The Big Ask" is a premise in search of a movie, one that co-directors Thomas Beatty and Rebecca Fishman never quite find.

Under the Radar

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.
