A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011)

January 19, 2012

Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Leslie Bibb, Nick Kroll, Tyler Labine
Director: Alex Gregory, Peter Huyck

Quick Thoughts: Thought this might be one of those under-the-radar solid comedies but A Good Old Fashioned Orgy is a real snooze fest. No seriously; I fell asleep no less than three times while I was watching it. As I’ve mentioned numerous times before, the worst kind of movie is the comedy that isn’t funny and this film’s humor is completely MIA. And the story is absurd. A group of 30-something losers decide to throw a Labor Day orgy when the house they’ve been partying in for years is being put up for sale. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? I always get Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms (from The Office and The Hangover) confused and then I remember how to tell the difference: Ed Helms is actually funny. For real, I wanted to turn this movie off and send it back numerous times while watching it. The best you’re going to get out of this film is a few chuckles. Don’t waste your time watching it.

Viewings: 1
Replay Value: Ew.
Sequel Potential: Naw.

Nudity: Quite a bit. Nothing good though.
Grade: 2.5/10 (Horrible/Skip It)
RottenTomatoes Scores: Critics: 35% Audience: 44%

Recommendation: I couldn’t possibly recommend this to anyone. But my roommate said he liked it, so there’s an audience out there for it somewhere. I say stay away.
