Elevator Pitch A group of 30 somethings who have been holding parties in the New England luxury house owned by the father on one of them, see their fun coming to an end when the house is put up for sale. As a final fling they decide to hold an orgy and so must get everybody to sign up, and then carry out an investigation to see how orgies work. Will it take place, and will everybody get their gear off?
Content Parties take place, young women wander about in bikinis (if some memoirs are to be believed they live on a lettuce leaf a day and spend hours in the gym), they all talk about sex a lot, the guys visit someone else’s orgy, and go to a wedding. So some nudity and simulated sex, actually presented in a pretty inoffensive manner. Also quite a bit of drinking and smoking.
A View The intent of the movie is, as Tennessee Williams said to “keep the audience waiting – and then keep them waiting some more”. There are some almost pointless sub-plots maybe included just to pad the thin plot out. It did not cost much but still made no money. What can I say? It is not awful and if you decide to watch it you know what to expect.
