Whipped Review


Excellent
The time is the present, and the setting is New York: where everyone has game... or at least thinks they do. Brad (Brian Van Holt) thinks he's got game but is really an unabashedly sexist pig. Zeke (Zorie Barber) thinks he's got game but all he has are physical shortcomings. Jonathan (Jonathan Abrahams) knows he doesn't have game, but is forced to ante up stories as if he did because Zeke and Brad constantly brag over Sunday breakfasts about how they scammed during the week. And Eric (Judah Domke), a man who was designed to "jump on the grenade" at parties and ended up marrying the grenade, just wants to escape from his utterly pitiful life.

Enter into the story Mia (Amanda Peet), a girl who appears to be innocent but who we quickly discover to be playing all sides against the middle. Mia meets Brad, Zeke, and Jonathan one week, then schedules dates for the next week, only to be surprised by all three on the same night. Knowing that she is found out, she decides that it will be impossible to do a relationship with any single one of them because she likes them all too much and offers them the choice of each one having a relationship with her or having them all leave. Because all of them are too cocky to let Mia go, they all end up dating her... alternating nights, bumping into each other on the way out, and generally growing to hate each other rather quickly.

Terrible

The superficial modern sex farce "Whipped" takes place in a world where all women are beautiful, shallow, sex-mad and stupid.

It's a world populated by runway models and girls nicknamed "Heidi the Hoover" who happily go home two at a time with overconfident Melvins in leather pants and pleasure these pigs all night long. Then some of these Barbie dolls subsequently steal guys' TVs while they're in the shower the next morning, proving how untrustworthy chicks are, dude.It's a world where groups of guys gather in chromey corner diners in Manhattan on Sunday mornings to loudly compare detailed notes on the quantity and quality of the babes they bagged on Friday and Saturday nights.

It's a world that could appeal only to folks whose lives revolve around frat parties because in this world everyone -- everyone -- is utterly devoid of any qualities that make people worth knowing. It's "The East Village of the Damned Blackguard Bachelors."
