How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town is about a group of friends who live in the picturesque town of Beaver's Ridge-the epitome of wholesomeness and strong family values. Their orderly life is interrupted by the homecoming of Cassie Cranston, whom they slut-shamed into leaving town when she was a teenager. Now a big-city sex writer, Cassie returns home to face an unwelcome reception by her former friends, and finds an opportunity to seek revenge by writing a book about them when they ask her if she'll help them plan an orgy.
It took me two attempts to get through this movie, and the only reason I did is that I'm the type of person who absolutely insists on watching an entire movie unless it is completely unwatchable. I fell asleep on the first attempt, and got through the second time though it wasn't any better. I was wide awake on both attempts.
This movie is not that horrid, but it is quite boring with a predictable and unfunny script. The acting is not great but I've seen the stars of this (the two main female leads) in other movies where they were fantastic, so I think the real problem here is that they didn't have much to work with (again, the script).
It just seems like a lazy, boring movie, where they probably got funding from a studio based entirely on walking in and saying "hey we can get these two sexy women to be in a movie that's about an orgy" and then they coasted on that.
It's not at all funny and even less sexy.
