A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011)

I'm sorry if I got beer on your baby.

Another day another sex comedy. Packed with a list of "stars" who all look oddly familiar A Good Old Fashioned Orgy starts with a reasonable premise. The house that has hosted Eric's parties for his friends and neighbours is to be sold by his 2 dimensional flyby character of a dad so the spoilt 30 something's that nobody can relate to host a final party. An Orgy.vlcsnap-2013-09-23-21h20m45s99

The film is adequate however as a sex comedy it is seriously lacking both sex and comedy. The titular orgy is hardly hedonistic and the tease of nudity from the leading players is never (except for willow) really paid off. There is plenty of nudity in one fetish bar scene however when you are lead up to an expectation of naked flesh on a character that you have spent an hour relating too, not getting this is like a hair triggered husband that ships out on his wedding night.

This may sound perverted and bitter...well maybe it is. However when a film has a title like this you rather expect some kind of ...sexual content. Its not as disappointing as Naked Lunch (seriously WTF guys) but it isn't the orgy expected. Its barely a gangbang. Hell its mutual masturbation.

Its also not really very funny. A good sex comedy is either funny or raunchy, without either of these you have, erm, Desperate Housewives?vlcsnap-2013-09-24-10h04m38s234

It does some up one thing for us 30 something's however. We are the lame generation, Aids DID kill all the fun in sex for us!

Don't bother guys (and girls) there are far better sex comedies out there.
