The sex jokes in Whipped are tiresomely vulgar and unfunny. Critics also condemn the movie as cynical and mean-spirited, with no likable characters.

Charming as a seven-year-old who drops trou at recess to show off his doodle.
This is an adolescents' view of the grown-up world, created as if by someone who loves to talk about sex, but doesn't quite understand how it actually works.
A mean and draining movie, and poorly crafted to boot.
Its soul is ugly and what little brains it has are shrink-wrapped in bile.
An insult to anyone who pays money to see it.
A slick Hollywood movie that, sexual politics aside, primarily exists to entertain, which it does.
After just 30 minutes of "Whipped," you either want to hose down the screen with Lysol or dip yourself in bleach. It's that offensive, that rotten, and it easily stands as the worst film in years.
Funny at times, but never makes you care.
...after a while, the whole thing just becomes tiresome.
Amazingly, humor in the movies has become so much cruder and ruder in the past two years that "Whipped" already seems about as scandalous as "Getting Gertie's Garter"...
If you're looking for a biting satire and smart commentary on male sexual misadventure, steer away from this movie.
It isn't every sex comedy that leaves you needing a cold shower; rarer still is the sex comedy that leaves you desperate for a hot one.
Guys are stupid...
I find something endearing about this profane, broad, low-brow and vaguely sexist movie. Maybe I just really love the fact that it's almost the antithesis of Sex and The City. Both take place in New York, both feature four friends who ike to sit in retaurants together and talk about sex. It's just that there is almost no romance in this, except possibly between the friends themselves. This movie is not for everyone - almost no one, I imagine - but I liked it.
I think I saw this but if it's the one I'm thinking of, it seemed to think that just because it was an indie film that it would automatically be interesting. If this is the same one I'm thinking of then yes, it sucked.
[font=Arial][color=darkred]The ailing problems with 'Whipped' aren't with its inept acting, writing, and direction - though those do add up. The true problem is that 'Whipped' isn't just a bad movie as say 'Battlefield Earth' is; no my friends 'Whipped' is a viciously ugly movie, the type of which that force you to take an hour long shower afterwards and scrub your skin with salt and steel wool.[/color][/font]
[font=Arial][color=darkred]The story of 'Whipped' unspools over a familiar diner over four friends bantering over female conquests, misognistic games and chest pounding, and general nastiness. Our core of characters the ususal stereotypes of these "men" with the supposedly sensitve one, the yuppie Wall Street kid, the playa' etc. Writer/director Cohen tries his darndest to raise eyebrowels with vulgarity and raunch, but minus any wit, just making it seem shallow and inane. Which is a perfect description of 'Whipped' in any kind of masochistic nutshell.[/color][/font]
[font=Arial][color=darkred]The three guys eventually fall head over heels for the same woman in the big-teethed Amanda Peet, who somehow beyond my comprehension does have an air about her. Eventually these crass individuals all learn some kind of lesson when Peet plays each of them for the same kicks the men derive. Is this supposed to be a feministic statement in the end of a movie so full of underground hatred for women that it could have been 'In the Company of Men' minus the quality? 'Whipped' is billed to expose the politics of dating but what it perceives as breaking new ground and insights in the war of dating we all learned many years ago, some of it on the school yard playground.[/color][/font]
[font=Arial][color=darkred]'Whipped' has such ugly contempt for basically anything living as we carry along with the four pathetic human examples of life. The humor is dead-on-arrival and horribly bad. The acting is so amatuerish these people's only other experience must have come from an uncle's home movies. Yet Cohen gets crucified the worst for his flat and lifless direction and most importantly for his ugly story.[/color][/font]
[font=Arial][color=darkred]'Whipped' may prove not to be the worst movie of this year already full of its fair share of garbage, but I defy anyone to discover a film that is more ugly, spiteful, and horribly uncomfortable to sit through. 'Whipped' just isn't bad, it's one of the very few movies you would sell your soul for to erase from your memory banks.[/color][/font]
