While Stephen Baldwin as headliner is hardly comforting, nuanced performances by Alison Eastwood, Suzanne Cryer, and George Newbern make this watchable at least.

This charmless ensemble comedy starts out amiably enough, but quickly succumbs to the triple handicap of poor direction, a badly written script and some alarmingly excessive performances.

Writer-director George Haas' debut feature offers nothing as it strains to be funny and provocative.

At least Alison Eastwood and Suzanne Cryer are good at getting naked.

The gags and situations are but repetitions and variations on dull, ribaldly worn and reject elementary Farrelly Brothers scribing.

An inept farce with the mentality of a tittering 15-year-old boy peering under the bedcovers with a flashlight.

This movie is not merely bad, but incompetent. I get tapes in the mail from 10th graders that are better made than this.

A movie that operates on a level of such staggering ineptitude that its very existence is offensive.

A cold, stupid bore about people with no goodness, just geniality; no inner life, just impulses.

There is no structure or dramatic tension to the film, which is just a bunch of aimless scenes of people exchanging witless, pseudo-hip dialogue.

Downey at least seems to be having fun, but the rest of the cast runs the gamut from bland (Eastwood, León) to downright awful (Schiffer, Baldwin).
