WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Two guys stuck in a miserable pre-law job start a club for guys to hook-up with older women. Things get complicated when one of the guys falls for his bossís wife and even more complicated when they get arrested.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I was relieved to see that ďNational LampoonĒ had nothing to do with this film and that fact at least gave the film a chance to be decent. It wasnít mind you, but at least it had a chance. It was a typical adolescent, hormone filled movie aimed at giving pre-teen boys a few giggles.

Movies like this are a dime a dozen at your local video store. Somehow a couple of guys find themselves in situations where women are taking their clothes off. Itís definitely not family entertainment, but itís not going to be shown on Cinemax any time either. The T&A is minimal, but when itís there, it serves absolutely no purpose. Iím not sure thatís a good thing or a bad thing.

As bad as the film was, I have to admit that I did laugh a couple of times. I enjoyed watching the main character keep his family away from his party. But those moments were few and far between. It had some decent running gags, but they werenít explored properly and pretty soon it felt like the filmmakers ran out of ideas. Although the film was barely over an hour and a half, it felt like it had way too many endings. They could have easily taken ten minutes off of it by ending it at a decent point.

At the end of the day, I think people (pre-teen boys) will rent this movie for the nudity and sex jokes. I think the filmmakers knew that and thatís pretty much who they were targeting with some of the immature characters and toilet bowl humor. I hated to see the once beautiful Faye Dunaway relegated to such an embarrassing role, but what can you do? Itís a cruel business.
THE EXTRAS
Blooper Reel (4:56): If youíve seen a blooper reel with lame gags and actors laughing, then youíve seen this one. Itís not worth the five minute investment.

Cougar Outtakes (3:38): Jon Polito has a little monologue here, which he gives better than any of his lines in the movie. They mix a lot of movie scenes in here which kind of takes away from the point of calling them outtakes.

Deleted Scenes (3:01): Most of these scenes are pretty quick and donít offer very much. I didnít find any of them funny, but they could have been put into the film without taking away anything.

There are also some Previews
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Yes, this is an immature, borderline silly film, but there are worse movies out there that try to do the same thing. Even with that, if youíre over the age of 15, I wouldnít recommend this one.
