Storyline

Tom plans to surprise Sara with an engagement ring, and he's asked his four best friends to witness the popping of the question at his place on Valentine's night. Trouble is Sara's left him a "Dear John" letter and will be by soon for her suitcases; plus, thinking it's a party, Tom's friend Sal has invited five women who were at his bar to come too. First the men talk - about women, sex, love, and homophobia (Tom's pals include a happily married guy, a gay man newly engaged, a metrosexual, and Sal, an inveterate player). Then the women arrive and argue in the loo about men and sex before joining the boys for talk, alcohol, and hookups. But what of Sara, and what of love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

You should see this movie for the following reasons :
25 March 2008 | by csidSee all my reviews

Two good reasons :

1) You will find out(if you don't already know) all the things that are wrong with relationships these days. Why everyone is playing on defense, and why (as a good friend told me) if two people are in love, they f*** (each other up)

2) It's a chance to learn a lot of vital information about relations from a man's points of view and a then a woman's. This could help you from not having to go through all the torments of an ended relation (from a reason that you do not understand) and learning all this on your own.

I can not understand why the movie has such a low rating. Maybe because people would have expected more action or i don't know. But this movie is more like 'food for the brain'. It can really make you wonder what you want in life, what you already have and what you might be searching for. It sound easy, but after this movie, i saw that all the years spent on relationships that ended badly, one night stands, and being the person that always has to hear what a jerk he is, but how their love will conquer all, all that experience can be summed up in about 90 minutes (even less, because i didn't know for sure what the women thought about all this). So .. in conclusion, if you seem interested about the subject you should see it. (and please ignore some of the bad acting and sometimes the cliché dialog because it's worthwhile )

By the way .. this is my first official review, and the idea of the movie made me so determined to write it. Also if you like this sort of movies where more ideas flight around than bullets, check out The Man from Earth (2007).
