Movie Info

Director Martin Gero turns his knowing lens on five different archetypal relationships in a caustic romantic comedy highlighting the amusing similarities and bizarre differences in human relationships. Sexually frustrated blonde Abby (Kristin Booth) is stuck in a domestic rut with her hyper sensitive boyfriend Andrew (Josh Dean); will the pair be able to smooth things out or could it be that their relationship was actually doomed from the very beginning? Yet while folks like Abby and Andrew are

The cast tries but rarely achieves an authenticity of emotional intimacy, as if everyone knows they're going to be cut away from -- how else to say it? -- prematurely.

A more accurate moniker for this sex comedy might be Attractive White People Nattering On.

Neither as extreme nor, for that matter, as interesting as its troublesome title.

YPF caused a minor sensation at last year's Toronto Film Festival, but I guess the chance to see Canucks even partially disrobed is a selling point up there.

The jarring skips required for clockwork peeks into each sexual narrative turn all the participants into reductive character sketches, spouting pithy one-liners and sporting ready-to-wear emotions on their sleeves.

In truth, Canadian filmmaker Martin Gero's very funny and insightful feature debut is far less shocking than its detractors -- most of whom haven't even seen it -- would have you believe.

It's just a non-stop even flow of whining from people who have nothing to whine about.

The smaller scale also holds some solid indie charm.

Like life, it's sweet, messy, awkward, and dull.

Actually a pretty staid affair, showing much less nudity than most R-rated films and coming down firmly, for the most part, in the pro-monogamy camp.

Its willingness to tackle common, yet squirm-inducing sexual predicaments with blunt, sometimes hysterical wordplay will certainly command attention.

A smart and funny look at how people react under extreme sexual pressure.

It is, in short, a 'funny because it's true' comedy for adults, a potentially commercial film of the sort we should be making in this country. It has a sense of joy. No one in it ever contemplates suicide.

There's too much talk and not enough action in the balance and eventually the straitjacket structure of the script is a schematic that grows tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Young People Fucking (Y.P.F.)

Isn't as serious as it should have been.
January 16, 2010

Super Reviewer

A clever ensemble piece about the circumstances under which people aged 20-32 find themselves... well... having sex. A movie about sex that depicts what's necessary without being tasteless, this is an examination of various preconceptions, misconceptions and warped perceptions about sex, and asks the questions so many people ask themselves and each other. A one-of-a-kind film that really makes other movies' depictions of sex seem very shallow, this one doesn't have the best acting, or writing, but it's interestingly structured and makes it point very well.

A cleverly written Canadian comedy that is a lot more tame than the title suggests and you may expect. It's likeable cast is a major contributing factor to the films success. Y.P.F. is a frank and entertaining little gem that you should definately check out.

Y.P.F. is...difficult to review. The tag line is, "Sex without complications?....yeah, right." This pretty much describes the movie as well as it can be described. Five different pairings at different stages of the relationship spectrum all go to bed, and we see what the results are of their hanky-panky.

There are some really diverse situations here, from two ex-lovers who want to spend another night together, to a guy who wants his roommate to have sex with his girlfriend while he watches. Complicated doesn't begin to describe some of the things that unfold. Some of it is funny, some of it is painful, and some of it is very uncomfortable.

My constant thought throughout the film was that the basic concept was cool, but it would all work so much better as a genuine documentary. And no, that's not an excuse to see people actually having sex. Real life always trumps fiction, and Y.P.F. is a perfect example of that. Its scripted scenes and dialogue only offer an imitation of what these situations would REALLY be like.

    1. Jamie: I'm twenty-three.
    2. Ken: Bloody hell. I mean, I'm thirty-one-years-old. You know what that means? It means I can't be running around fucking all these girls. I mean, half the time I don't even speak to them ever again. That's rude is what it is. It's immature. It's embarrassing, it's fucking embarrassing. There comes a point when you want all of this to be about more than just getting off. Do you know what I mean? So I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go, and, uh, I'm gonna ask you if I can call you later in the week. I'll tell you what I'm gonna do for you. I'm gonna walk you up to your door.
