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.

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.

Really tough call on this one. I would actually like it to be 2.5 stars. This movie could have had real potential but aside from the 5 main men in the story, and not all of them were good but the rest of the cast was horrifically bad. Especially the guy doing the alleged torturing, he is just too campy to believe. This is also supposed to take place at two different times, when they are in college and then again when they are 40 years old??? I say where is that fountain of youth...they did not age a day. Nick and Jason are the men in trouble but they usually are. Max and Jimmy have to find them and they don't know they were kidnapped for a torture flick. The fifth friend doesn't have the time and Norm leaves. As far as acting goes, Max, Nick and Jason are the only ones who seem to even try which they should get kudos because the script, direction, production and pool of talent leaves a lot to be desired. Overall, I say pass on it unless you feel particularly masochistic.

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.

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

Five teen boys from an Eastern suburb enjoy a kegger at Maximo's parents' place, inviting the hottest chicks in town sometime in the 1980s. Twenty years later, most of the clique has gotten married and settled down, but they still blow off steam once a year during a big city weekend getaway. This year it's Philadelphia, ostensibly for an Eagles game, but for a few of the now grown men it's their chance to cheat on their wives and live it up and do cocaine without worrying about the consequences. They're all still boys at heart and the movie makes that clear once every thirty-five or forty seconds.

They each have different personalities, though the movie is underwritten as to what the personalities are, and the actors apparently have a lot of room to ham it up in the best Cassavetes style ("Husbands" anyone?), so you get the impression one is secretly a coward, another a sex addict, a third one probably a closet case, while Max is really trying to grow up, and the last guy (Nick) is the one who was raised by alcoholics so his personality has been deformed in some unclear way, but he's a cheater.

What they don't know (or most of them don't know) is that this year their group has been targeted by a David Lynch-like crew of pornographers who plan to kidnap and sexually molest the best looking of them. Led by a creepy old man (Robert Blake in LOST HIGHWAY, anyone?) this film crew locks up Nick and Jason in the eponymous "playroom" and proceed to make them into chemslaves, keeping them chained to their beds with only a single sheet between them and strap-on horrors they could not previously have imagined.
