There's a lot of vapid discussions about sexuality and fidelity that sound like a late-night drunken dorm room conversation.
| Original Score: 1/5
As a serio-comedy, it only half succeeds. The laughs are well earned, but the attempts at serious romantic analysis fall short of poignancy.
The young actresses Graham and Wagner here create two characters who feel whole, distinct and weighty.
An edgy, gabby, salaciously subversive sex farce.
You gotta admire a director who can come up with a way to hang out in such luxurious digs for two weeks, acting out sexual situations with three of the dishiest young actors in the business.
A lively, if slender, perpetuation of the battle between the sexes on a modern battleground.
Built around a fearless performance by the protean Robert Downey Jr., this deliberately provocative story of deception and sexuality packs a punch that's undermined by the director's indulgence.
| Original Score: 2/4
Writer-director James Toback must believe his audience is hopelessly prudish if he thinks this pedantic story, which takes place over several hours in a Manhattan loft, is provocative.
Toback has somehow managed to prolong and expand this sketchy egg-on-your-face situation with a series of unexpected ironies and power role reversals that are not without wit, humor and intelligence.
A thoroughly engrossing, intelligent and enjoyable experience.
There is little realistic feel to the characters, as drawn by Tobak.
| Original Score: C-
Mildly entertaining. Is never as erotic as it thinks it is.
| Original Score: 3/5
Hot, hot, hot!
The actors are always fun to watch, and that's what saves this movie from being utter crap.
For the actors -- and lovers of fine acting -- it makes the movie a feast.
| Original Score: 3/4
Worth seeing, if only for the awesome performance from Downey.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Somewhere along the line the dramatic tension evaporates.
The film provides a zany and somewhat twisted look at three New York singletons and their quest for love
a thoroughly cynical look at modern romance and the general state of contemporary interaction between human beings
A small movie with some big moments and a lot of unfinished business.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
