4.0 out of 5 stars Fling Is Fast Paced And Sexy January 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Labor of (Modern) Love April 5, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars fling excitement at this film May 8, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fling April 25, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked everything but the Title April 3, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Charisma Of A New Concept. July 21, 2009
Format:DVD
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern, Sexy, Provacative Love Story W/ a Twist March 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is truely a modern day love story. Samantha and Mason are a twentysomething couple in an open relationship. They have always told eachother about their hook-ups. When each one meets someone else, lies and untold truths start being told and each of them start questioning if having an open relationship is healthy and if it will work. Twists in the plot thicken when friends are involved and Samantha discovers she is pregnant. Can everyone ever figure out what being in love is really about?

I really liked this movie. It is deep, kind of dark, and very emotional. Well written with good actors. If you like the movie Garden State you will definately like this movie.
