Editorial Reviews

If you could have sex with no strings attached, would you?  Donna (Amber Benson) and Christi Ann (Kristen Kerr) try their best, with funny and heartbreaking results.  Tired of dating and relationships, the daring women keep two young men in their pool house for strictly sexual purposes.  Joe (Johann Urb) and Stanny (Stevie Long) are unemployed New York construction workers who have found themselves living with two beautiful and successful single women.  But the hardest part about all that sex?  Sometimes you find yourself falling in love. In the vein of "Sex And The City", this film is directed by Independent Spirit Award winner (John Cassavettes Award) Joel Viertel, and written by Stevie Long, who also stars in this heartfelt, ensemble comedy about how sex and love can make us laugh and cry at the same time.

This was playing in limited release in Los Angeles and New York to qualify for awards, so I got to see a screening of it, and I am so glad i can now get it on DVD. the whole audience was crying and laughing, and for good reason. It's the MOST ROMANTIC movie i have seen in years without being sappy. You have to watch it to understand. absolutely the best VALENTINE'S DAY gift ever. the only thing i didn't like so much in the film was the hand/held camera work, which on a big screen makes me a bit dizzy. (okay, so maybe i am dizzy already, haha). But the acting & writing was GREAT.

A friend recommended this movie highly and I was highly skeptical - but she kept pestering me to see it - and wow, was I suprised... This is a true indie gem - it's a great movie - the emotional intelligence and depth is at the level of top Oscar winning films! A film that I loved that it reminded me of was "Closer" though "Strictly Sexual" is much lighter and funnier - but just as affecting... I can't believe that this movie was not in the theaters - it's so good...

This story was written by and starred Indie film writer Stevie Long. If you like the concept of two girl friends meeting two guy friends, and experimenting with meaningless sex and casual nonchalant behavior because of it, then you will enjoy this film.

These girls have no interest in having a real relationship with any guy, but they still want sex and they want to have it as a needed pass time, not as a loving relationship, but that's not how it turns out. Emotions get in the way and that causes them to actually discuss their feelings, which ruins everything for one couple, but blossoms into something special for the other couple.

One girl (Amber Benson) loves wild and carnivorous sex, while the other girl (Kristen Kerr) is more shy and inhibited. Of the guys, one guy (Stevie Long, this story's writer) feels compelled to insult women and yet that seems to make his girl more wild and horny. While the other guy (Johann Urb), the nice guy (the mistake most of us guys make being) is more patient with his more hesitant shyer girl and yet their relationship grows into something more strong and meaningful. I don't think anybody here wanted to fall in love, but how cold, shallow, and disconcerting can you be if you continually keep the same person as your only sexual encounter?

I liked how the shy girl starts to realize her own need for sexual spontaneity, as the best scene (to me) is when they were in the car and she decided to just go down on him because her sexual yearnings were becoming more prevalent. She just had a great day at work, and so she wanted to reward herself with something sexual in the car, right away. That was very cute.

This was a great film.

Best love story since "The Notebook". Also very funny. At first you think it's sort of like "Sex & The City", which is kind of is as far as the women are the main characters, but it goes from being ha-ha funny to man-that-happened-to-me-too! type of funny. if you want to have the girls over for a good cry, rent this. or you can watch it with your boyrfriend, the movie has a good job of showing the men's point of view on things. Loved it!!!!

This is like a version of "Jay and Silent Bob" except Bob talks.

This movie started out interesting and unusual.
But by the middle of the movie, there was no place for the story to go.
So, the ending was very predictable.

CONTAINS SPOILERS . . .

Two women (roommates in a large house) are frustrated by relationships. They decide to get male prostitutes because they only want sex but not boyfriends. So, they go to a bar which is supposedly known for having male prostitutes, and they pick up two men who introduce themselves as out-of-work construction workers. After bringing the men home and having sex with them all night, the two women attempt to pay the two men. The men are shocked that they were assumed to be prostitutes, and the women are shocked that they really are out-of-work construction workers. Although insulted, the two men accept the money because they are broke. When the women hear that the men are about to be evicted, they tell the men that they may live in their pool-house, rent-free, until they find jobs, as long as they are available for sex whenever demanded. I can't imagine any unemployed single men who would turn down this deal.

The movie goes downhill from there. The men hang out in the pool-house all day while the women are at work, and at night they are invited into the big house for dinner, and then they have sex, repeat repeat repeat. There is nowhere for the story to go, except to show four people having sex. I didn't care about the characters. I didn't care what happened next.

Although they are supposed to be "strictly sexual," they are living together just like two couples, and they end up having conversations, which lead to discussions and arguments just like real couples. They spend a lot of time together, and emotions get in the way, and so there is a predictable ending.

saw this at Cannes filmfest last year, loved it then, so just bought DVD. commentary track was as funny as the movie. if you like indie movies, you will love this movie. if you want to see formulaic studio fare, rent something else. essentially, this film is about intimacy, and how we falsely think nakedness and sharing our 'private parts' consitute intimacy, when, in fact, that is hardly true. strongly reccomend to anyone who wants to see a brutally authentic film about the meaning of sex, and it's often forgotten partner, love.
