Sex, Party and Lies 2009
Mentiras y gordas (original title)
1h 47min | Comedy, Drama | 27 March 2009 (Spain)
A youth group is preparing for what the summer of their lives will be, including secrets, lies, pickups, sex, confusion, and especially great night party. Most teenagers are not aware that once you begin this journey of initiation, you can not turn back, and often the lies will become increasingly large, and sometimes love means to hurt.
To start of with the possessives: I think the movie is well shot, it looks good. But it pretty much stops there.
There is no progress what so ever. Things happen because they happen. There is no sense of progress to the story. And you feel like you are watching event after event take place. So you end up watching these girls and boys take drugs, drink and of course have lot’s of sex.
I think I counted 6 sex scenes, placed around the movie, so whenever the viewers think about turning of the film or walking out of the theater, they think that the sex scenes will capture your attention. And for many, it does exactly that. Teens having sex in the toilet of nightclubs.
If you are looking for a good film, look somewhere else. if you want to see teens have sex, well… try porn or this film.
