Trivia

The parties that inspired the film are based on those thrown by co-director/writer Peter Huyck in and around his southern Californian home. These bashes have included Trekkie, pirate and jailbreak themes where Huyck and up to 100 guests take over venues and don costumes, from Star Trek gear to prison jumpsuits. See more »

Goofs

Absinthe shots? Absinthe is traditionally drank by placing a shot in a tall glass and then adding cold water drizzled through a sugar cube placed in a slotted spoon on top of the glass. The absinthe then goes foamy and cloudy. See more »

Fun, if you keep your expectations low
23 June 2012 | by themoviecouchSee all my reviews

Everyone knows that folks in the '60's and '70's did some serious swinging, and from what you hear about young people today, you get the impression that they only stop slurping each other's privates when they take a break to send each other naked pictures on their cell phones. So what happened to people like me, who came of age in the '80's and '90's? AIDS, that's what. We grew up hearing that sex was a scary, dangerous thing that could kill you. It didn't completely stop us from having sex, but it probably did cut down on the debauchery. "A Good, Old-Fashioned Orgy" is the story of a group of 30-somethings who set out to remedy that.

Eric (Jason Sudeikis) and his group of high-school friends, which consists of several cute chicks and an assortment of dorky guys, have grown up partying at Eric's dad's beach house. When his dad puts the house up for sale, the friends see the end of not only their epic parties, but of the free, irresponsible chapter of their lives. (Which, given that they are about 30, they have stretched out pretty far, anyway.) Eric convinces the group to see the beach house off with one, last epic soire, a good, old-fashioned orgy between friends.

You see the title of this film, and you figure it will be a fun sex-romp, and eventually it is, but they do take their time getting there. This is a story about 30-year-olds belatedly coming of age, so first they have to set up the many characters and their first-world issues. This is less a story about an orgy, and more a story about people realizing that they can only stretch their adolescence out so far, and I wish the film had either done a better job exploring that theme or just focused on the sex. In any event, it's a moderate amount of fun. Sudeikis plays a funny, charming ladies' man, and Tyler Labine is pretty good as his fat, crude sidekick. There's one really funny scene that makes the whole film, where the guys do some research in an underground sex club. Basically, much of the movie is a less good- looking, less funny version of "The Hangover." Also, in keeping with the modern trend, there are more naked, male buttocks on screen than naked, female breasts, and my wife points out that the male buttocks aren't all that great. "A Good, Old-Fashioned Orgy" is fairly fun and funny, but if you are looking for soft-porn you will do better with "A Game of Thrones."

2.5 stars out of 5
