Co-lead Ari Graynor gives the sort of breakout performance that the film requires.

Constantly ducks away from any semblance of adult sexuality, indulging in garish colors and giggle fits.

It's a comedy that isn't always funny as it struggles to find the right tone between raunchy and sweet. It celebrates female friendship in a way few movies do, but good intentions don't always make for a good film.

the concept was rife with possibilities that could synergize with Graynor's fresh appeal as well as her rising-star status. Neither the possibilities nor the synergy happens, mainly due to an underdeveloped story.

Sure, there's some ribald humor, and the subject matter is clearly edgy. However, it's really a sweet story of friendship wrapped in a sexy package.

short on laughs and high on vulgarity

For a Good Time, Call... is one of those pleasant surprises sometimes experienced in the cinema when the Gods of Celluloid, reading your attendance as a sign of defeat, take pity and alchemise the material you'd braced yourself to despise.

Tedious and repellent: avoid.

If there's one thing more annoying than the dumb mainstream sex comedy, it's the dumb mainstream sex comedy that has aspirations towards indie funk.

Colourful direction and sparky performances help make this friendship comedy watchable, although it never seems like a finished film.

The film keeps trying to be filthy and outrageous, but is actually rather timid.

What saves this ultimately charming indie... from its inescapable sitcomishness and an over-reliance on some tired stereotypes is that it does manage genuine cuteness in a realm that has enormous potential to be icky and crude.

Ari Graynor and Lauren Anne Miller are great as the sassy pair and despite a veneer of sex, in truth the film is more about friendship.

Disarmingly sweet, defending the girls' enterprise and friendship in the face of all judgment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Brent Simon
Shared Darkness
November 1, 2012
Transcends the more pat aspects of its story, connecting in fun fashion by sheer force of personality.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Little White Lies
November 1, 2012
Has emotional authenticity and a decent laugh quotient, but overall enjoyment is marred by general ridiculous and unresolved sub-plots.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Earns points for focusing on the central female friendship and for its refreshingly frank and breezy attitude to sex, though it's slightly let down by a late-arriving plot development that fails to fully convince.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Think American Pie (without the sight gags) meets Sex and the City (without the gloss) and you've got this, a girls-on-top comedy that's all spit and no polish.

Watching [Travis] add his kitschy touch to such a witless, faux-edgy movie can only be described as a Travis-ty.
