Houston Chronicle

A slick Hollywood movie that, sexual politics aside, primarily exists to entertain, which it does.

Charming as a seven-year-old who drops trou at recess to show off his doodle.

San Francisco Chronicle

Ugly. And unpleasant. And clueless on a grand scale.

This movie has straight-to-video written all over it.
Top Critic
David Germain
Associated Press
January 1, 2000
A caustic, raunchy, often hilarious examination of how men use women, and how easy it is for a determined female to do the same to a passel of self-centered males.
Top Critic
Jonathan Foreman
New York Post
January 1, 2000
The movie shifts so quickly into cliché, and then morphs into a poorly conceived and bleakly misanthropic morality tale.
Top Critic
Stephen Holden
New York Times
January 1, 2000
The dirty talk is so painfully forced and emphatic it lacks any comic spontaneity.

A mean and draining movie, and poorly crafted to boot.

Detroit Free Press
January 1, 2000
[Peet's] all but wasted in a movie that professes truth but is really about cheap laughs drawn from ugly behavior.

Cohen, an experienced feature producer but first-time director, is hung up on superficial production values over substance.

Cohen has written and directed a 'sex comedy' that's so coarse and moronic you actually feel embarrassed for the technicians who were forced work on it.

Whipped is a decent idea that never goes deep enough for genuine satisfaction.

The trouble with Whipped isn't that its characters are dirty mouthed horndog jerks -- it's that they're phony dirty mouthed horndog jerks.

Boston Globe

There is no character development; these guys are all adolescent libido and nothing else. Cohen's writing never delivers anything resembling real human interaction or connection.

January 1, 2000
The best way to say this is succinctly and with a noble degree of restraint: Whipped is cinematic suicide, if not for actor, then certainly for audience.

Its soul is ugly and what little brains it has are shrink-wrapped in bile.

By the end of this mercifully brief (82 minutes!) saga, everything, and everyone, has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.

Only masochists will enjoy Whipped, a cynical sex comedy that manages to be infantile and jaded at the same time.
Top Critic
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
January 1, 2000
Leaves you with the feeling of having at last escaped a numbing experience, trapped in the company of people too pathetic to be amusing.
| Original Score: 0.5/5

Tom Sime
Dallas Morning News
January 1, 2000
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.
Top Critic
Rita Kempley
Washington Post
January 1, 2000
[Cohen's] insights are as worthless as a lecher's promise and the issues he raises as stale as a couch crumb.
