Fling is a movie about a young sexy couple who believe that they can have an open relationship and jump in and out of bed with others at whim. She begins to fall in love with a former boyfriend. He, on the other hand, is obsessed with lust and sex and wants to bed any girl he can. Their relationship is stretched to the breaking point and eventually something has to give. Will they survive their lifestyle? This movie sexually teases you from beginning to end. Excellent performance by Steve Sandvoss and Courtney Ford. Brandon Routh also turns in an excellent performance.
The movie is worth seeing. You won't be bored. It is fast-paced sexual tease all the way through.

I was really caught off-guard by Fling. From looking at the poster and tagline alone, I hoped I wouldn't be going into a raunchy, shallow romp through sophomoric sexual 'hijinks' filled with all them sexy young honies shakin' their booty-thangs for hairy-palmed mouth breathers and aberrant frat boys across the nation.

What I got instead of that was a thoughtful, down-to-earth look at the modern relationship, and the passion, joy, and most of all confusion that goes into it. In fact, it addresses human relationships, love, and sex so intelligently and honestly that I can't believe it got released.

Naturally, there's still a whole bunch of sex in Fling, but it manages not to be a sexploitation flick, in the same way that it's funny, but not a romantic comedy. It's just a film about people being people, having people problems and dealing with them in less-than-heroic ways. For a while I forgot I was watching a movie. Part of that was because the actors gave a surprisingly convincing performance, but the cinematography played a major role as well. Going with the hand-held style lent a great deal of intimacy and gravity to the events and characters depicted in the movie, and made me feel as if I was a close friend standing in the room, watching things fall apart between my best buds. It also worked to separate the film even further from the big-budget Hollywood flicks that it will inevitably be lumped in with.

Fling was a very new experience for me, a unique film that confronted an important aspect in our culture that virtually no one else in film has addressed with any degree of grace or understanding. A true labor of love. I highly recommend that you scoop up your significant other(s), sit down with them and give this film a watch, and recommend even more that you talk about it afterward.

"Fling" is one of those "sleeper" hits. The kind of movie that doesn't have blockbuster appeal, but creates its own cult following on the DVD scene. Why? Because it challenges conventional thinking in ways that frighten mainstream mores. To engage in romantic relationships, where each party isn't attempting to the own the other, is counterintuitive to our Judeo-Christian socialization. "Fling" makes an overt commentary that might be missed by the typical viewer--conform or be alone. Granted, it's difficult to be emotionally detached and compartmentalized when feelings emerge in relationships. But, does the emotional conflict derive because we legitimately feel expectations from love or have we been socialized to respond a certain way, because of the societal scripts we read from? If we respond emotionally from the framework of our socialization, I suspect it'll be the later--we feel emotional connection from our psychological scripts.

"Fling" attempts to dissect and explore the emotional possibilities of "Free Love." In keeping with conventional wisdom, Hollywood let's the explorer lose in the end. Not because the idea is preposterous, but because "Free Love" would disrupt life as we know it.

I highly recommend "Fling" to the intellectually enlightened.

I was impressed with this movie. Given the premise of "open relationship" for the main characters, I did not expect to like them much but I did. The acting is very good. I liked seeing Routh in this thoughtful role and the other two leads are terrific. Good supporting characters.
I also thought the photography was beautiful and was surprised that the sexual situations between characters were done with a sense of intimacy without a lot of actual nudity! Very sexy.

A movie that explores modern relationships between those now in their twenties. The idea of an open relationship might seem weird or unnatural to some and the movie explores this notion and tries to show the reasoning behind being in an open relationship.

Pretty good movie, decent acting, I'm always amazed at how natural some inexperienced actors are, none of the leads have done that much, yet seemed very believable in their respective rolls.

The perfect couple that lives by the ideal of detachment from jealously, rides out every other human emotion as they play dangerous games with the people around them. I like both the American title of "Fling" and the International fitting title of "Lie to Me". It is a movie that is true to life with no real heroes or villians, just people that are dealing by either growing or not growing from the situations put in front of them. Shot in Kansas City, this film was genuine enough to feel like it was simply some of my friends telling me about how they got to where they are now.

The "open" couple Mason and Sam are introduced in a Kansas City loft-style apartment, getting ready to leave for a wedding where they both find another love interest. Mason actually encourages James to hit on his girlfriend, Sam, as he talks to his best friend's (and agent's) 18 year-old sister, Olivia, who grew up with a crush on him. Mason and Sam stay together at the end of the night in hotel room and through out the movie. However with a strange love for each other, but no commitment, they spend the rest of the movie seeking out "open" interests.
