So last week I was worried I was getting old,
becoming an old fart, not appreciating the finer things in life like
chicks in cheerleader outfits, then came "Whipped." I donít
feel as old anymore because even though "Whipped" really wasnít
a great movie, I laughed my ass off (as did the Dude on the Left). Whew, I
feel so much better!
A Movie Review
When I first saw the preview for "Whipped" I wanted to see it
because Amanda Peet was in it, and after seeing her in
Nine Yards," and Iím talking nearly all of her except what was
covered by a well placed banister, I had hopes that her inhibitions to get
naked were still gone and that "Whipped" would gain a thumb for
some nudity. Then I saw the headlines for an article saying that
"Whipped" almost got an NC-17 rating and I thought
"Yes!!!!!" Then I read the article. It basically said that
"Whipped" didnít have any nudity, but that it almost got the
doomed rating due to language. I thought "No nudity, damn. But, my
God, how bad can it be?" I knew I still had to see the movie.
"Whipped" will, in its story about three single dudes along
with their married dude, give you nearly every sexual innuendo made to man
(and Iím sure the rest were covered in the NC-17 version which I hope
makes it to video!). And thatís the thing that really keeps this movie
fun (along with the hope of seeing Amanda naked (it doesnít happen) and
the trials of the married dude). You want the story, here we goÖ
In this movie you get Brad (Brian Van Holt), Eric (Juda Domke), Zeke (Zorie
Barber), and Jonathan (Jonathan Agrahams). Theyíre all friends but donít
usually hang out together except for brunch on Sunday to re-cap their
scores for the weekend, well, all except Eric, the married dude, who tries
to keep up by bragging about his love-life with his wife. The three just
want to get laid and arenít looking for a relationship, and they arenít
afraid to leave out any detail about their latest score. Entering into
their lives is Mia (Amanda Peet). Somehow, one weekend, they all meet Mia
in separate instances, and, well, Mia is the girl of each of their dreams.
Nothing comes between friends like one girl, and Mia splits them all.
Meanwhile Eric is pissed at Mia because with her coming into the his
friendís lives, well, it means no more brunches for the boys to get
together and brag about their sex lives.
Anyway, the dudes all want Mia, and they all think about marrying Mia,
but we find that Mia is playing all of them for fools. Such are women.
The movie didnít have to far to go, and you can really find that by
the fact that it is less than an hour and a half long Ė and thatís not
a bad thing. Sure, not the greatest value for your buck, but dragging it
out more would have dropped this movie in the rating scale. But the fun in
the movie is how the dudes are such idiots, how their bragging is so over
the top it is hilarious, and how you wonder if getting married is worth it
I wonít go into more of the movie except to say that I can almost
understand the NC-17 rating but still canít understand how some other
movies get PG-13 ratings. Oh hell, what do I know? "Whipped"
shows you that men are pigs (duh?), but more importantly, that women are
evil. We (men) can be such suckers, and our dicks still get in the way of
If you want a pretty stupid movie with some of the best toilet humor
around, go and see "Whipped." If you get offended by any
innuendo of people having sex, youíre better off staying at home.
In the end I laughed a lot. The acting wasnít that great, the story
was kind of dorky, but "Whipped" made me appreciate toilet humor
once again, and since I found myself able to appreciate the humor in
"Whipped," well, I donít feel as old anymore! Itís 4 stars
out of 5 for "Whipped."
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
Oh, yea, I almost forgot. Donít jump right up and head for the exits
when you think the movie is over. You get some out-takes and some more
definitions, like the term cock-block, which our writer Stu Gotz is
already too familiar with! L8R again!!
