3.0 out of 5 stars REVENGE WILL BE SERVED!!! May 7, 2013
Format:DVD
This show is like a who-done-it in reverse. You will come to understand that the evil genius will take revenge on one or all of her former/current lovers who she brings together at a table in a bar. The crime hasn't been committed yet, you know who will do it, but you don't know when, how, or to whom. All the ex's of one woman are brought together (three men and yes, another woman) to bring this plot together in dark comedic fashion.

The first thing you need to understand about this movie is that it is dialogue driven. Almost everything takes place at a table with flashback scenes to fill in the gaps. There is not much by the way of action. However, the scenario is good enough to drive the movie and the twists are interesting. If you can't take that much reliance on dialogue to make it work for you, chances are you won't like the movie. I admit, I normally don't like this kind of movie. This one worked just well enough for me.

I can't say much more about plot without spoilers so I won't. The actors are all very recognizable and enjoyable, though not in the renaissance of their careers. I was glad to see each one. Katee Sackoff works well as the evil genius specifically because she is a bit quirky. She sells it well. I always like Seth Green. Michelle Trachtenberg is definitely on my list to see in movies as the sexy ex girlfriend of another woman. Harold Perrineau and William Baldwin round out the primary players.

I want to give a specific mention for Lauren Fray (from GREEK) though she had a very small part as the waitress. She says very little but has such an interesting manner about her that you wonder if she will play a bigger part somewhere in the story. I hope to see her in bigger movies in the future. She does off-the-wall comedy very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEYOND SANITY April 17, 2013
Format:DVD
Katee Sackhoff stars as Nikki, the girl in the title. After being out of prison for four months, she gathers three of her ex-lovers in a bar. She was found not guilty of killing her stalker, then boyfriend by reason of insanity. Her criminal lawyer and now fiancee Bert (William Baldwin) shows up with her. The characters are Zach (Seth Green) her first love. There is also Miranda (Michelle Trachtenberg) and Marvin (Harold Perrineau). Each of the her three former lovers represent one aspect of the title or Nikki's psyche.

While they wait for her arrival, the three tell stories about how crazy and enchanting Nikki was in their lives. The stories barely held my interest, but I was drawn in by wanting to know where this film, with a jazz opening, was headed. The movie involves telling stories and playing head games at the table. It is more of a five man play.

The film is clever and there are times when I think it is clever for the sake of being clever. This is for those who like a smart indy and "My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult."

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex. No nudity.

Scott Lew, a talented writer/director afflicted by Lou Gehrig's disease (A.L.S.) has gathered a truly spectacular ensemble cast (and director) to tell the the story of an unstable yet sexy vamp who brings together a handful of ex-lovers to a downtown Los Angeles bar to plot the ultimate revenge. This clever thriller with a twist and dashes of dark comedy is a must see not only for fans of the genre but also those for those of Katee Sackhoff (of Battlestar Galactica fame), Michelle Trachtenberg and the ubiquitous Seth Green. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good performances, engaging April 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
While I expected this to be a fairly good film it exceedes all my expectations, engaging and intriguing storyline, very good performances by all, good directing, and even good cinematography, very tight and intimate. As for the cast I consider them all to be very underated and capable of so much more than they gave been given the chance to do in the past. I am glad to see them "Working" in a project that gives them a chance to prove just how good they can be without CGI and special effects cluttering up the

By Dalena
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is interesting. Not a lot of action in this movie. It is a group of people who get together who have one thing in common an ex-girlfriend. It is mostly talking but I found it fairly entertaining. Is the Ex crazy or not? Who knows...

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull movie with a cast of characters from TV shows November 30, 2013
Format:DVD
Our cast of characters are exes of a woman that mysteriously invites them to a bar. They discuss and tell their stories of love gone wrong with flashback sequences, but for the most part its literally just 5 people in a bar for the entire movie. Well they do move from the bar to a table when the party gets larger. Its all dialog and backstory building to a twist ending. Its really dull stuff that could have made for a great 30 minute episode of the Twilight Zone when the talked about sexy evil genius finally walks in with her new fiance. Hey at least the movie has actors and actresses you've seen in Buffy, Family Guy, Lost, Battlestar Galactica and William Baldwin! Think of it.... seeing them for 90 minutes. One plays the evil genius, one plays a funny nerdy high school boyfriend, one plays the ex junkie lesbian ex, another plays the black ex band mate ex boyfriend, and finally one plays the new boyfriend that got the evil genius off for murder.

You learn so much about what an evil genius this character is that it seems overkill within 15 minutes and then they keep going with how evil and twisted she is. Its 80 minutes setting up the twist ending. Spare yourself this movie. 90 minutes of 5 people sitting at a table.

I really liked SEG, the script, acting, and camera work are lively and fun. It is, however, basically a play set mostly in a bar, and that might not be some peoples cup of tea. Read more
