Funniest (and most surprising) movie of the year

Reading the reviews for this film, which range from very positive to strongly negative, I was intrigued to see what the disagreement was all about. After seeing it (and it wasn't easy, as it was a bit of a drive to the nearest theater showing it), I totally understand what it was that divided the critics. For the haters, it seems they assumed a movie with the word 'orgy' in the title (for some reason they ignored the 'good old-fashioned' which made it clearly intentionally silly) would have to be a dumb, sex-filled romp. When it turned out to be a really smart and sweet exploration of friendship through the device of group sex, with minimal raunch, there seems to have been confusion and even anger. For those who didn't find the movie funny, I have no idea what movie they saw. The screening I went to was packed with laughs, but the movie actually goes a lot further than just hitting the comedy (which it does brilliantly). It's a generational movie about adults who grew up in the shadow of AIDS, ergo a sex comedy about people who are afraid of sex. The more we get to know the group of friends, the more we care about them and their journeys, in addition to the comedy of a group of neurotic New Yorkers trying to pull together a night of reckless sexual abandon. It works on multiple levels and is far smarter than you might expect it to be (which is what a lot of the positive reviews have pointed out). I'd compare this movie more to The Big Chill than one of the American Pies, and the cast is one of the strongest ensemble comedy casts to come along since Dazed and Confused. It's a movie people are going to be watching and talking about for years to come, so check it out now while it's still in theaters because seeing it with an audience really adds to the experience.

Don't listen to the haters

People are really split on this movie. The haters are all either people who are offended by the idea of group sex, annoyed there wasn't more T&A, or (strangely) both. They seem to forget that this is a comedy, and a comedy should be rated by one thing only: how funny it is. This was really really funny. I don't know how a movie like Hall Pass which had at most 5 laugh out loud lines could do better than Orgy which had at least 50. Just goes to show that movie success is based more on marketing than anything else. The one criticism I have is it suffers a little Ferris Beuller-itis. Am I really supposed to root for this spoiled white rich kid? Once the movie gets going though you quickly forget this and just hold on for the "ride."

You'll split yourself!!

Firstly you have to be really open-minded to watch this. Even though the Orgy itself features in the movie, the whole story revolves mainly around the planning, personal opinions and feelings of the characters regarding the topic. The Humour was fast and witty. There was a bit of nudity featured but nothing to get upset about if you're open-minded enough to watch this Movie to start with. In General I found it highly entertaining and would recommend it to anyone who isn't going to be deterred by their religious beliefs or conservative upbringing. There were definitely a few scenes where I found myself gasping for air due to hysterical laughter. This is the New-age guys. You don't have to believe in it - but it was a blast! I loved it!!
