Just A Kiss 2002 R CC

(6) IMDb 5.1/10
Watch Trailer

All they wanted was the relationship of their dreams. All they got was a hilariously convoluted nightmare that began with...just a kiss. It's a twisted story of sex between six consenting adults that New York Magazine hails "A stylized comedy with magical flights of fancy!"

"Rocky" and "Good Will Hunting" are the best of examples of what happens when out-of-work actors write.

In these situations, they can write themselves work. And with some talent, some and a little luck, these unemployable actors are never unemployed again.

Nervous nebbish actor Patrick Breen wrote this experimental WAY Off-Off broadway (so far off, I believe it didn't play in halfway houses) play "Just A Kiss" about how one single event can completely can change not just the lives of the kissers and their significant others, but people outside their little circles.

A whole chain reaction. One kiss. Between two people who shouldn't be kissing. And then hell breaks loose. Not just the kissers and their significant others. But people outside the circle as well.

A promising idea even though we have seen it before. One person and one desicion. That's all it takes.

Oddball character actor Fisher Stevens is a friend and collaborator of Breen's and makes his directorial debut with this experimental film and the often-dubbed "character actor" does some experimental character direction here with this one.

Perhaps the film is trying to be too many things at once.

Maybe the real problem with "Just A Kiss" is it takes too many targets. Social commentary on love, life and relationships (especially in NYC). A black comedy. An experiment. A drama. A dramedy, perhaps? And if that's not enough, the movie tries too hard to be "hip" and "stylish" and "ground-breaking" with it's technique.

"JAK," which could probably be best described as an "Anti-romantic comedy." What bothers me the most is that it's not a succesful one. But boy, it sure could have been.

Okay, I just finished watching this movie. It began nice and dark which I love with a few twisted characters but it never got good. It went from twisted to sick and finally just pointless. I would recommend seeing this with a group of people lots of alcohol and no regrets about losing an hour and a half or so of your life.
Enjoy.

The other reviews here surprise me; I thought this was well written, well-paced, well acted, edgy, funny - and a slightly softer version of the movie Closer, which got great reviews but was rather uninspiring in all ways, If you liked I'm With Lucy - you'd probably like this - It is offbeat, realistic (sad or funny to say) and shows you how one wrong move, one errant kiss can be a pivotal bad call that sends you, and everyone around you in an emotional spin, forever changing the course of your life....Sort of a psychic string theory thing.

Worth it just for the "Why can't you love me' scene and the (bizarre) three wakes.
