unlike the other 3 guys who did not like the movie, i did, many willmake the mistake and expect a normal comedy where this is mostdefinitely a drama, as its not the jokes or story what makes the movieinteresting but how personalities of characters are react and developto the story given challenge. in this case 3 in general monogamous and1 poly capable person decide the 1st time experience group sex, theexpectations they have and the mistakes they do. i have a uniqueperspective as i do live for a long time sexually open/poly, so for meits very interesting to see how others see this issue, the acting isbrilliant and the reactions of the characters reminds me on people iknown in the past who got in to similar situations, its rare to find amovie on this subject. the only reason i cant give this movie a 10 isbecause the story-line is pulled out to thin, sometimes it becomesboring because absolutely nothing happening for minutes, they filledthose long minutes with "everyday" conversations that do not build onthe story-line nor are in any way interesting nor funny

While it's not an awful film, one would expect that the filmmakers (andI'm using the term loosely to include the cast and writer as well)would be able to explore some of the more complex emotions associatedwith sex. And no, I'm not complaining about the complete lack of nudityeither (well, maybe I am a little).
But some of the MOST erotic scenes in film history have had no nudity(think "Streetcar Named Desire") so it's hard for me to give a pass tothe filmmakers here, because they really had no excuse for making thesecharacters completely unsexy (and to do that to Eliza Dushku is acrime, BTW)
Some films you want more because they "tasted so good." This one Iwanted more because there was no substance (and not much style either)
Check out "Lie With Me" or "Flannel Pajamas" if you're looking for aself-involved indie that deals frankly with sex.

This film failed on all counts. While I accept that couples of any agecan experience the problems that these couples are dealing with, butthroughout the film it seems that their real problem is that they arebored.
The ending was the only part of the movie that I thought made anysense, and then only just.
My wife and I almost never agree 100% on movies, our tastes arecompletely different. We both 100% detested this film.
So, to summarize: * No Plot * Bad Writing * Actors who seemdisinterested in the material, or they were poorly directed * Zeronudity
There are much better movies that cover similar territory, find one.
