Movie Info

Eli McAllister, our eleven-year-old hero, is on a quest. He is also setting out to win The Fiesta Cup, a local bowling tournament. Joining him is his famous fashion designer uncle, Sean McAllister (Adrian Grenier.) Sean hasn't spent time with his family - specifically his father - for years. But now he has come home to spend time with his older brother, Eli's father. Thrown into the tournament as his ailing brother's substitute, Sean clashes with his father as old wounds are opened. But instead of reliving the past, they pull together to bowl their best for Eli who stands to lose so much. Funny, sweet and soulful - SEX, DEATH AND BOWLING takes us on a journey to learn that the secret to life is loving what you have - even if it is just a split.

Critic Reviews for Sex, Death And Bowling

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Rather oddly titled for what's basically a sentimental family pic, "Sex, Death and Bowling" mixes numerous formulaic, overfamiliar elements that never quite gel.

Top Critic

It's overly busy and seems to mask that there's something lacking. Grenier anchors with a nuanced lead performance, but for such a starry cast, the cinematic quality doesn't match up to the talent on screen.

Nov 6, 2015 | Full Review…

Attempting a complex tone combining melodrama and quirk, it's moderately successful on a few fronts.

Feb 20, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A richly emotional character-driven drama.

Nov 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Should be quietly euthanised.

Nov 6, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Seems more like a Lifetime Network movie than something designed for theatrical release.
