Movie Info

Wendy Goldman and Judy Toll adapt their stage play to the screen in this retro-hip sex comedy about two girls who spend their summer vacation looking for guys. As one of the girls remarks at one point, "It was the early '80s, and sex was still a good way to meet new people." And meet new people they do. At a California spa, Stacy (Lea Thompson) and her friend Melissa (Victoria Jackson) set up shop in search of men. The gals don't end up in the sack with every good-looking man who tickles their fancy, but they begin to look, instead, for Mr. Right.

If the script is dubious, the direction matches it. The cast is less directed than exploited.

With the late 1980s sensibility, their sex conversations are peppered with the girls' finding their own identities in relationships with men outside the sex act. Is it mature? Yes. Is it funny? No.

After a variety of sketchy farcical/romantic complications, the movie settles for a rather sentimental epilogue, but it remains surprisingly engaging.

Aside from these confessional flourishes and the very infrequent bright remark (''It was the early 80's, and sex was still a good way to meet new people''), the film is as ordinary as it can be.

Definitely a lightweight movie, without any heavy ambitions, but for the most part a likable one; with script and direction by women, it's considerably less arch and dehumanized than the usual sex comedy.

Casual Sex?, the movie, is exactly like the real thing -- kinda empty, kinda unfulfilling, and you feel just awful afterward.

Audience Reviews for Casual Sex?

Another young adult sex comedy with no surprises, but good actors. It's not too bad, but it isn't good either.

Oddball, likable comedy about two single girls who go hunting for men at a health resort. I like Lea Thompson the best because of her sexy naked scenes - whoo!
