When five attractive women, lifelong friends, gather to celebrate the third marriage of one of them, the blunt talk turns to sex--experiences past, present and hoped-for, with memories and fantasies depicted with humor. Lavin understands well how fluid sexual attraction can be. Meanwhile, normally level-headed Marcy Cynthia Stevenson has succumbed to a fling with her house painter only to find herself being stalked by him. All these matters and more get aired and sorted out in the course of this lively, intimate movie, but Julianna Lavin, who also knows a thing or two about men, is too smart to tie up everything neatly with a ribbon. Times guidelines: It is entirely inappropriate for children.
Theatrical prospects will be limited and specialized, and the effort will likely get a second wind in ancillaries, particularly cable. As the women throw a bachelorette party for one of their group, sexual fantasies, petty rivalries and the like abound in this modest ensemble piece. Jamie Kim Cattrall is about to go to the altar for the umpteenth time.
The film writer and director Julianna Lavin plays the role of a minor character. A group of childhood friends have a sleepover as a bachelorette party for Jamie, where the conversations evolve from the topic of their relationships with men to sex and related fantasies. The group includes two sisters, Rachel and Jill, between whom remains some emotional tension. The hostess for the evening, the bisexual Georgina, is pestered by her possessive live-in lover Chris, who declines to join the party, staying in her bedroom. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
