Cast: Jason Sudeikis, Leslie Bibb, Tyler Labine
Directors: Alex Gregory, Peter Huyck
Despite that titillating title, 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' is neither funny, nor particularly sexy. Jason Sudeikis stars as a 30-something New Yorker who, along with his close group of friends, spends every weekend throwing elaborate theme parties and getting horribly drunk at his summer home in the Hamptons. When his father decides to sell off the place, the group decides to have one daring, final celebration…yes, you guessed right…a good, old fashioned orgy.
Unlike 'No Strings Attached' and 'Friends With Benefits' which at least attempted to answer that important question – Can friends have sex and still be friends? – this film doesn't deal with any of the real questions that might emerge in this kind of situation. 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' seems content with making lame jokes about sex toys and masturbation. Each of the eight core characters come off as such lightweights, it's hard to believe they're actually real people in their 30s.
None of this might have been a problem if the film was funny. Or sexy. But it's not. The orgy does take place in the film's final act. But it's surprisingly dull.
I'm going with one out of five for 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy'. Who'd have thought a comedy about group sex could be so boring? Go back and watch The Hangover again. It's smarter, braver and so much funnier.
Rating: 1 / 5
