Movie Info

After making his directorial debut with the acclaimed made-for-cable movie Gia, writer Michael Cristofer helmed his first big-screen offering with this drama. When eight men and women in their early-to-mid-20s head out for a night on the town, hopping from one Los Angeles club to the next, not everything goes as planned as they discover the joys and perils of dating at the end of the 20th Century. Body Shots shifts among the perspectives of its eight characters, played by Sean Patrick Flanery, Ron Livingston, Jerry O'Connell, Amanda Peet, Emily Procter, Tara Reid, Brad Rowe, and Sybil Temchen. The film had a number of titles during production, including The Night Before and Jello Shots, the latter of which was reportedly axed to avoid legal problems with the company that makes the gelatin dessert product.

Audience Reviews for Body Shots


A sad social commentary on the lives of young adults who are only looking to hook up and consider many sexual acts including fellatio to be so common they don't even count as sex. While there are pretty ladies getting out of clothes, there isn't enough of that to make up for the stench of the philosophies spouted by these poor, misguided losers.

One scene is good and this scene actually becomes the focal point of the entire CRAP movie. HAWAA - I got drunk and hooked up with a random guy and the next day, I will claim I was raped - HAWAA!

Watched this on late-night cable, and somehow I managed to watch the whole thing even though it sucked! Ok, ok I'll admit it was because of the boobage... but still it was a waste of time.
