| Original Score: 2/5
A slick Hollywood movie that, sexual politics aside, primarily exists to entertain, which it does.
Charming as a seven-year-old who drops trou at recess to show off his doodle.
Ugly. And unpleasant. And clueless on a grand scale.
| Original Score: 1/4
An insult to anyone who pays money to see it.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
This movie has straight-to-video written all over it.
A caustic, raunchy, often hilarious examination of how men use women, and how easy it is for a determined female to do the same to a passel of self-centered males.
The movie shifts so quickly into cliché, and then morphs into a poorly conceived and bleakly misanthropic morality tale.
The dirty talk is so painfully forced and emphatic it lacks any comic spontaneity.
| Original Score: 0/5
A mean and draining movie, and poorly crafted to boot.
[Peet's] all but wasted in a movie that professes truth but is really about cheap laughs drawn from ugly behavior.
Cohen, an experienced feature producer but first-time director, is hung up on superficial production values over substance.
Cohen has written and directed a 'sex comedy' that's so coarse and moronic you actually feel embarrassed for the technicians who were forced work on it.
Whipped is a decent idea that never goes deep enough for genuine satisfaction.
The trouble with Whipped isn't that its characters are dirty mouthed horndog jerks -- it's that they're phony dirty mouthed horndog jerks.
| Original Score: F
There is no character development; these guys are all adolescent libido and nothing else. Cohen's writing never delivers anything resembling real human interaction or connection.
The best way to say this is succinctly and with a noble degree of restraint: Whipped is cinematic suicide, if not for actor, then certainly for audience.
Its soul is ugly and what little brains it has are shrink-wrapped in bile.
| Original Score: B
By the end of this mercifully brief (82 minutes!) saga, everything, and everyone, has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.
Only masochists will enjoy Whipped, a cynical sex comedy that manages to be infantile and jaded at the same time.
Leaves you with the feeling of having at last escaped a numbing experience, trapped in the company of people too pathetic to be amusing.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
This is an adolescents' view of the grown-up world, created as if by someone who loves to talk about sex, but doesn't quite understand how it actually works.
[Cohen's] insights are as worthless as a lecher's promise and the issues he raises as stale as a couch crumb.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
