Is It Any Good?

If you think that a movie with the word "orgy" in the title would be raunchy and wanton, well then, you're right. Yes, there's an actual orgy, plus lots of off-color jokes leading up to it. There's plenty of nudity, too -- though, interestingly, it's not all that sexy, perhaps because so much of it is just about getting the laughs.

The movie is hilarious in parts, and it's also a surprisingly earnest story about how friendships evolve -- how they have to in order to grow. Well, it aims to be that, but unfortunately, the filmmakers give us a little too much of what's expected -- the lasciviousness, the lewd chatter -- and not enough of the heart or the wit to make A GOOD OLD FASHIONED ORGY much more than it is: a passably funny, though not entirely groundbreaking comedy.
