Are you old enough to remember the 1986 version with Demi Moore and Rob Lowe? I am. It's a story as old as time: We watch two couples make their way from the bar to the bedroom and then come face to face with the real world.
Director Steve Pink ("Grosse Pointe Blank" and "High Fidelity") clearly understands the dynamics of the dating game. He knows how important it is to have sympathetic characters, even though they sometimes misbehave.
Here is the updated cast:
This R-rated comedy (raunchy language and sexual situations) is laugh-out-loud funny and much, much wittier than the original. The dialogue is so rapid-fire I found myself reaching for my remote: ("What was that?" "What did he say?"), so I'll probably buy the DVD, because I know I missed some great lines.
I was one of the people who blurted out with laughter in one scene when I realized that they were watching the 1986 original on TV; I recognized it right away. The younger folks in the screening audience had no idea what we were laughing about. ...sigh...
