release year: 1996
genre: comedy/drama
viewing setting: home laserdisc, 6/18/97
what I expected: something with orgies
what I got: amusing quest of young adult man to find a worthy mate

synopsis: Mike and Trent are just two average twenty-something guys - which pretty much means that when they're not working, sleeping, or hanging out with the guys, they're in hot pursuit of hot women. Mike, a nice guy at heart, can't get over being dumped by his ex, and this interferes with his ability to meet and click with new women. Trent is an obnoxious kind of friend, and his advice seldom holds value.

impressions: The antics of these two (and their friends) were hilarious, in that embarrasing kind of way that makes you feel as if you're right there with them.

acting: Perfect. We're given a zany mix of personalities.

final word: Very entertaining. All twenty-something men (and, if they're up to it, women) should watch this movie.

rating: B-
