In all fairness, I don't really know what I was expecting when I ordered this movie. I browsed through the DVDs, thought I found an interesting one, ordered it, and hoped for the best. The movie arrived in perfect condition. It was still enclosed in the plastic wrapper, there was no damage to the disc, and it arrived in the promised two days guaranteed by Amazon Prime. The movie itself, however, was a little bit of a disappointment.
Firstly, let me begin by stating that I'm a woman. I'm a woman who very much enjoys the cheesy romantic comedies that present the female species with unrealistic expectations of romance. Chick flicks are a must-have, as far as I'm concerned - and how much more "chick-flicky" can you get than a movie that seemingly focuses entirely on pillow talk?
Secondly, I'm a big fan of Mila Kunis, so it was mostly her role in the film that encouraged me to purchase it. On the up side, Kunis appears in the movie for about as long as everyone else in the film. The downside, however, is that nobody is in the film for very long.
Each couple presented an interesting story to the movie which, I believe, could each easily be made into separate plot lines, and therefore separate movies. The concept is that all eight of the couples featured in the movie are linked together by some sort of "After Sex" talk - and, in theory, it sounds intriguing. The frustrating part is that each couple has a story that could be explored in greater detail, with much more humor and more in-depth emotion than the time constraints for this movie allowed. So, without the background stories and insights into the characters, the theory put into practice turns into the viewer essentially taking tiny clips from what feels like eight lengthy movies, and trying to summarize them all in your head by relating them to back to the title of the film.
In short, it's okay. Nothing spectacular, and nothing horrible, either. It would have been better with a little more territory to explore with each couple. It's okay for background noise, or for something to watch while eating a quick meal, but definitely not a movie to sit down and watch with friends if you're looking for a laugh.
