Just One Time Reviews

December 18, 2006
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 began life as a sharply written short film, but as a feature it's unmemorable.

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 definitely onto something, but unfortunately, like Amy and Michelle, or Anthony and Victor, it never goes far enough.

This isn't a groundbreaking film, or even a particularly memorable one.

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.

The script is unremarkable, as is [Janger's] direction and acting, but winning performances save it from total negligibility.

A story like Just One Time is inevitable -- and welcome -- in an age of advanced sexual freedom and experimentation. But someone with more respect for women should take another whack at it.
