Is it possible to have a frothy romantic sex comedy with characters that have very few redeeming features? I guess "The People I've Slept With" makes the case that it is, indeed, possible. But is it prudent? Attempting to be a pleasing romp, the film presents two lead characters that I did not like at all. That's fine in some cases, I appreciate an antihero or jerk as much as the next guy (probably more). In this type of comedy, however, you're supposed to be charmed and amused by the lead's antics and I simply found them distasteful and insufferable. With a plot straight out of a film two decades ago, "The People I've Slept With" highlights a world of irresponsibility and promiscuity. Strangely, the most traumatic thing that may happen in this life of meaningless and random sexual encounters is an unwanted pregnancy (okay, maybe the plot is from 30 years ago). Of course, life lessons are to be learned as selfishness gives way to elements of maturity--but by that time, this was already a lost cause for me. As I didn't like the principles, I didn't much care about their journey and the slight redemption was purely by necessity, not by any great character insight.

Karin Anna Cheung plays the lead and when she discovers that she's got a bun in the oven, she must uncover which of her sexual encounters is responsible. Enlisting the help of her equally self-involved gay pal (Wilson Cruz), there is much hilarity as the two condescendingly judge the less than ideal candidates. With Cruz, who is cheating in his own relationship, the duo of losers act as if they are the prize to be won in any scenario. Ironically, Archie Kao, Randall Park and Rane Jameson are all far more appealing than our main characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun movie April 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was a thuroughly enjoyable movie. I love the actors and the story line. It was nice to see a lot of Asian actors in an American (US or Canada) movie, and no, I am not Asian, but I find them to be beautiful people.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment May 7, 2011
Format:DVD
I couldn't wait to watch this movie after my friends (who had seen it at an Asian-American film festival) raved about it. The trailer makes it look hilarious and smart. Unfortunately it was a huge disappointment for me. Usually with these types of movies about unplanned responsibility (i.e. Knocked Up), it's all fun and games at first, but eventually the characters truly mature, which is the best part of the movie. Not so with this one. Except for maybe one short monologue at the end, the protagonist never really proves herself to be an admirable lead, despite this tremendously huge responsibility she is bringing into the world. I do think the movie really tries to make the characters admirable and "real," but all throughout the movie they and their situations feel unrealistic and contrived. For example, at one point her best friend realizes how much he loves his boyfriend after he cheats on him. Just a few short melodramatic scenes later, the boyfriend forgives him, they get married, and are suddenly completely and perfectly devoted to one another. Think about how many times this actually happens in real life. Uhh, never!! If a person cheats it's FAR more complicated than that! This wouldn't be so bad if there were more laughs, but there aren't. Some of the comedic scenes are decent, but most fall short of being laugh-out-loud funny. Anyway, if you're looking for an indie movie with Asian-American leads that has a lot more heart, I recommend "Saving Face."

2.0 out of 5 stars The People I've Slept With June 29, 2012
Format:DVD
this movie more about sex
The People I've Slept With
2009NR89 minutes
When Angela Yang (Karin Anna Cheung) finds out she's pregnant, she's got countless reasons to be upset about it. But, more specifically, she's concerned because she's slept with so many different guys that she has no idea who the father is. Her more conservative sister (Lynn Chen) makes finding the baby's daddy -- and marrying him -- sound like the only plausible option. But Angela's liberally minded best friend (Wilson Cruz) has other ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hit Or A Miss! September 19, 2011
By S. Der
Format:DVD
I read many reviews on this movie before I actually watched it. This Asian American movie seemed either a hit or a miss with most people.

After I watched this movie I thought it was a hit. I liked it because it was hilarious to watch. Plenty of good jokes to keep me watching. Most of the jokes would be sexual in nature, but you could had already guessed that from the title of the movie. lol

I thought the story was quiet original and I have never seen this type of movie. I heard about it in real life, but never seen a movie made and finally I found one. Besides the main story line, this movie has a gay love story as well. I'm okay with that because I have many gay friends and I know some of them actually do look for love instead of sex all of the time. This movie was right on when I saw that in the movie.

The only thing I didn't like about the movie was at the end, where you don't actually find out who is the father of her baby. Yes, it pretty obvious, whom the father is and I know that. But, I have an issue with that as well. I'm one of those people that need to actually see or hear it for confirmation. It wouldn't be just this movie too. I hate every movie that does that. It's not so much trouble to just spell it out for the audience and some people would appreciate it the effort.

This movie is 4 out 5 stars and I would recommend it.
