In his feature debut, Langer continues to develop the trend begun by him as producer of I Think I Do (a better film), i.e. to construct a romantic comedy that blends gay and straight characters that co-exist in the same community; the result is uneven.
Just One Time, with its breezy jokiness, is more sitcom than smut, but at 90 minutes without a laugh track or commercial break, it hardly holds its own against an average episode of Dharma and Greg or Friends.
Just One Time is a bedroom farce with little sex or humor, a weak premise and spotty acting. But it's mildly enjoyable anyway, thanks to a sneaky charm.
A mildly amusing comedy that blends straight and gay characters together
Just One Time began life as a sharply written short film, but as a feature it's unmemorable.
Had Just One Time been closer to 60 minutes in length, filmed in front of a barking studio audience and presided over by a guy named Springer, I might have been moderately amused.
The dirty talk reveals motives that are unfashionably--dishonestly--square.
It's not a bad way to spend 90 minutes, but not fantastic cinema either.
This is not great, or risk-taking, filmmaking, but it does have a certain undeniable charm.
A very enjoyable film that should entertain a wide demographic of movie fans.
Jennifer Esposito spices up the cast as the all-knowing butch across the street. But a note to all hetero guys already pulling out their eight bucks: There are no scenes to write Penthouse about.
Just One Time is definitely onto something, but unfortunately, like Amy and Michelle, or Anthony and Victor, it never goes far enough.
