Editorial Reviews

PLAYROOM introduces us to Max, Jimmy, Norm, Nick and Jason at the age of eighteen. Friends since early childhood, they have bonded deeper than natural brothers. As eighteen-year-old men, we share with them their dreams, loves, and friendships as well as life s hopes and frustrations. We, once again, meet them at age forty and learn how their lives have unfolded as we experience their marriages, strengths and disappointments. Together they are capable of celebrating with each other their emotions in an open and honest fashion. The group is together now on their annual football weekend, this year in Philadelphia. While bonding and enjoying the vibrant nightlife, they become separated only to find a darkness they have never known. It becomes a struggle of life or death where everyone must pay the price.

If you are into movies about infidelity and fetishes, you'll love this one. Good movie, in a strange sort of way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Deep Enough to Float a Match July 29, 2013
Nothing about this scarlet-drenched pulp fiction is convincing. Not the least this is so because it dares to pass itself off as a morality tale.

The script makes absolutely no sense. Scenarios are tacked together in a hodgepodge of facile sentiments.
The movements, postures, facial expressions and line deliveries of each actor carry less life than a scarecrow. Likewise the camera work, lightening and ambient sound are erratically incompatible with each other.

If you've seen a show put on by a high school drama club, it's likely more talent was involved. Lucky thing, that: Playroom is such a sorry production it is easy to dismiss the blatant misogyny, homophobia and racism.

3.0 out of 5 stars Come Out and Play February 22, 2009
In a weird twist of the Hostel vein of films, "Playroom" (also known as "Consequences") kidnaps some sleazy guys from a perfect suburban lifestyle and lures them into a painful trap in....Philadelphia?!?! If they thought it was just gonna be cheese-steaks and Eagles Football, they were about to get their Liberty Bells rung. The two creepiest of these losers go on their annual "football trip," something they've been doing since graduating high school it seems, so they can ditch the wives and regress into the dopey 18 year olds they used to be.

Bad decision, as the first two of theses dodos wake up in some warehouse, chained to beds and terrorized by some creepy queen with snuff-porn on his mind. The two hos that brought them here in the first place don a set of strap-ons and it's lights, cameras, action! Meanwhile, the other three guys are irritated that these guys left them stranded for some nookie, but start to worry about why they didn't show up for the big game. The 'head' of the group, Maximo, starts on a search for the guys, dragging the cops into things. As Maximo and the other two go on a manhunt, our naked (save for strategically placed bedsheets) are being raped and tortured with a cattle-prod for Director McWeirdo.

While a weird reversal on the whole revenge flick (the guys are caught and tortured primarily by the ladies - even if its for the Queenly director), the bulk of the movie is strangely bloodless. As the finale finally gets to lumbering around, the violence quota is amped up considerably. By now, however, it's too little and too late.
