Storyline

Three young women come together in college and quickly determine that one has never had an orgasm, they quickly decide that they are going to make sure she has one (thus the not too subtle film title). The three then set out a sexual adventures. One takes up with a popular, arrogant boy who is of course more interested in his own pleasure than hers. Waiting in the wings is a sensitive outsider, who everyone immediately knows is the one who will float her boat. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Coming Soon....and leaving quickly
21 July 2001 | by scribbles241See all my reviews

Ughh. This is a really annoying "comedy" (and I use that term very generously) about three rich highschool girls and how they constantly bitch and complain about their idiot boyfriends and about not climaxing during sex -- until one of them finally finds true love with the only male character who's not a complete jackass (we know he's cool because he likes to express himself by rolling in mud). The filmmakers apparently rounded up a bunch of their Hollywood pals (Peter Bogdanovich, Ryan O'Neal, Mia Farrow and Yasmine Bleeth make perfunctory appearances), but not even the talents of a Steven Spielberg or David Fincher could've saved this movie's wretched script.

The film wears its hip attitude on its sleeve as it tries to be as edgy and darkly humorous as "Heathers" (which it so obviously wants to be) and as frank about teen sex as "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." Unfortunately, the writers forgot to put even one remotely interesting character in their film, instead populating it with a bunch of boring, rich snobs, whom the writers constantly make fun of for being vain, shallow and stupid. Talk about the kettle calling the pot black. Avoid like the plague.
