A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011)

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011)

Directors:  Alex Gregory, Peter Huyck

Synopsis:  Eric, the main character, hosts wild theme parties at his dad’s house in the Hamptons where he and his close friends from high school hang out.  His dad decides to put the house on the market and they find that they will soon be without a “rec center” to play and party in.  Eric befriends the realtor and ends up having feelings for her while his ulterior motive was to distract her and postpone the sale of the house while they have their last hoorah, which is an orgy.

Review:  I chose this movie because I like Jason Sudeikis.  I liked him in Horrible Bosses and The Campaign.  I really enjoy his sense of humor and his delivery.

The camaraderie and closeness among the group of friends in the movie was fun to watch.  The way they played off each other was humorous and made me laugh out loud numerous times.  It actually reminded me of the relationship I still have with a couple of friends I still have from high school. Eric’s premise for the orgy to be their final party is that kids today are crazy and into all kinds of things, and their parents were also crazy and into freaky things, so why shouldn’t they?   You see the main character Eric; evolve from wanting to have this big blowout of an orgy for his final party to not really wanting to have it any more because he is having feelings for a woman.  Meanwhile, the other friends are dealing with their own issues while they prepare for the final “party.”  One woman is struggling with her self-confidence after losing a bunch of weight and another is dealing with her old feelings for Eric, both of which a lot of us can relate to.  One of the men has a law degree and is a musician and wants to be a musician full time, but is wishy-washy about it, and thinks that doing the orgy will help him release his creative energy and assert himself.

The movie was a bit raunchy, but I expected it and it actually exceeded my expectations.
