UNCOMFORTABLE PLOT SUMMARY (inspired by this): [highlight for spoilers] Crazy sisters mess up man’s sex life.

PEOPLE: The main character is played by Christopher Masterson (the oldest brother in Malcolm In The Middle, Scary Movie 2), who I thought was Neil Patrick Harris. The 2 *lovely* sisters are played by Bijou Phillips (Choke) and Lauren German (A Midsummer Night’s Rave), who were both in Hostel 2. It is strange for a woman who’s last name is German to play a character who talks in a German accent when she gets horny. Patrick Warburton (crippled Joe Swanson from Family Guy, The Tick from The Tick‘s live-action series, Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., Buzz Lightyear from the Buzz Lightyear cartoon, Seinfeld, Men In Black 2, Scream 3) plays the typical kind of self-obsessed character he usually plays.

Also with Samm Levine (Inglourious Basterds, I Love You Beth Cooper, Pulse, Club Dread, Not Another Teen Movie, Freaks And Geeks), Danny Masterson (Hyde from That 70’s Show, Yes Man, Puff Puff Pass, The Trojan War, The Faculty), George Segal (Jack Gallo from Just Shoot Me, Dr. Benton Quest from The Real Adventures Of Jonny Quest), Leslie Hendrix (Law & Order).

QUIRKS: Infidelity. This movie is basically the same plot as Extract: Guy has an affair, so he tries to get a guy to have an affair with his wife, to even things out. This is a straight comedy, not a romantic comedy.

VISUALS: Two smokin’ hot babes.

MORALS: Apparently cheating is okay if you both do it?

BAD STUFF: People complain that they ripped off the movie Extract. A LOT of hate on IMDB.

CONCLUSION: Although this is the same plot as Mike Judge‘s Extract, which came out just a few weeks sooner — we unfortunately (because we love Mike Judge) have to conclude that this movie is funnier. The humor was more laugh out loud, and less dry than Extract. We did rate the two exactly the same, though.

RATINGS:
Clint: Netflix: 4/5 stars. IMDB: 8/10.
Carolyn: Netflix: 4/5 stars. IMDB: 8/10.
We both thought this was a “4.4 out of 5 star movie”. In other words, it’s almost a 5-star movie.

The native public rating for this movie is: IMDB: 6.0/10, Netflix: 3.0/5 stars (Netflix‘s predicted rating for us was 2.9/5 stars — totally wrong).

RECOMMENDATION: A funny, non-romantic comedy about marital infidelity!

SIMILAR MOVIES: Extract. VERY VERY similar. Similar plot AND quality.

COINCIDENCES: My blog review for Waterworld had JUST posted. This movie featured a pretend musical theater version of Waterworld.

Mood: 2 broken cars.. now this??
Music: Dr. Dirty – Hark The Herald
