i honestly thiink this is opne of the best moves played in the 80's. it wass just so delicious the way that it was sooo true about women
Very light, very superficial "comedy" about Thompson and Jackson at asingles resort. After seeing Clay's stand-up act, I was really blown awaybyhim in this. His "Vin Man" is the best thing in this movie, and one of themost memorable characters in any 80s-type movie. I still didn't like themovie, but he was fun to watch.
This Woody Allen-esque exploration of sex through the eyes of two femalefriends (Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson) is a pretty entertaining littlesleeper. The two discuss their sexual experiences, past relationships andsocietal attitudes, each taking turns talking to the audience. Eventuallythey travel to a spa where they encounter lust, rejection, love and, ofcourse, sex, sex and more sex. Andrew Dice Clay actually turns in a greatcomic performance as an obnoxious spa patron who has the hots for Thompson,and Mary Gross adds a few laughs with her usual soft-spoken schtick. Jackson is cute, though a tad wooden, but Thompson's performance is right onthe mark. As an added bonus, the two venture to a nude beach in one scene,so we get a nice long look at their bare bottoms (Jackson's cute buns maketwo extra appearances as well). Overall, there's really not much here, butwhat there is is pretty entertaining, and worth the price of arental.
This review is from: Casual Sex? (DVD) Yes, it is perfect and it reflect on our society perfectly. Yes, you chose to present facts you like, ignore reality and its perfect till it crash later on. After movie started I asked myself why the heck I bought this nonsense till Andrew Dice Clay showed up and movie became reasonably tolerable.Dont expect anything on R rating its only marketing trick. I was really surprized by this mainstream nonsense as I had illusion nobody makes propaganda anymore.
This film is not all that bad as critics made it out to be. Some situationsare fairly funny, the story takes wild turns and more importantly, it isAndrew Dice Clay's best performance to date in a non-Dice character. Themovie came out on DVD in May 2001 and I had to buy it. I watched it beforeon VHS and only because Dice was in it and I've gotta tell you, not only Iwasn't disappointed, moreover, very much impressed.The story focuses on Stacy (Lea Thompson) and Melissa (Victoria Jackson),two best friends. So girls just wanna have fun but at the same time aresearching for something more than just a one-night stand. They go to ahealth resort to try their luck among health nuts and just plain weirdos. That's where Stacy meets Vinny, aka the Vin Man (Andrew Dice Clay). "I'm thebest from the east, I'm a wild and crazy beast, I'm the VinMan!"Of course, Stacey dismisses him as just another brainless dick. Not sofast, fruitcake. Turns out that the lewd, crude, tough macho exterior washiding an insecure little puppy. Vinny reveals his sensitive, vulnerableside and before you know it, he's the most likable and memorable characterin the movie. Andrew's performance is amazing, you can really see hischaracter development; he's an arc. There's a scene where he almost makesyou cry.So when the story begins to switch back and forth between Melissa'swhirlwind romance and Stacy's attempts to rid herself -- and her apartment-- of a wannabe rock star, you'll find yourself missing Vinny and a littledisappointed... but not for long. Just wait until Stacy gets that letter...:-) You'll now see a very different, extremely endearing VincentFalconi.Behind the X-rated nursery rhymes and sexist jokes Mr. Clay sure can actif/when given the right role (like most talented actors!). Remember thatyou heard this from me first. The Diceman is destined to make aTravolta-style comeback...
A mildly amusing sex comedy. Lea Thompson was OK, and Andrew Dice Claypretty good here. I thought that Victoria Jackson was the real star here,though. She seems to have disappeared since then. I would have liked tohaveseen more of her. I can only recommend it casually, though.
I thought this was a great 80's movie. I especially love the sweet ending. I think it's perfect.
Movies like this never win awards, never top lists, are never hot topicsaround the water cooler (do people ever have powwows around water coolers inreal life?). This is the kind of movie critics like to cite as evidence ofthe decline of Western Civilization, because they make easy targets: theydon't change lives, and they have few defenders. But, leaving aside WesternCivilization for a moment, I want to say a word for the underdog. I watchedthe tape today, and was struck again by my happy mood after watching it. The story is featherweight, the acting likable if sitcom-ish, and the endingis as sweet as you could ask. Andrew Dice Clay's performance is indeedsurprisingly good, and the occasional forays into real dialogue about "themating game" touch on real issues. "Casual Sex?" won't change your life,but it's a pleasant way to spend a few hours. If you care what the snobsthink, just don't tell them.
i first watched this film back in college when it first came out and loved it then. Even now i have the dvd and yes, its dated, but so what? it's still a fun nice little film that raises a smile. Lea Thompson is believable and honest in a light yet human comedy so if you're looking for 90 mins or so of escapism then give it a view! You won't be disappointed!
This movie makes me laugh everytime I watch it! Lea and Victoria have not been in any movies recently, but this movie will make you wish they were! If you are looking for a smile, good laugh, and romance---this is the movie you want to see! Every guy in the film reminds you of a guy you have met before; and every conversation in the film reminds you of one you have had with your friends before as well! As a DVD, it rates OK because there is no behind the scences information, etc. I wish there was because every so often it appears as if they cut out a small bit of a scene---and I am the type who want to know what it was! I rate this movie as an excellent one to see with your friends---it will bring up memories you will die laughing about!
Witty comedy that may not solve the dating problems of the 80's...but doesoffer a lighter look at what happens in the dark. Also, a slightly tamedlook at the "DiceMan," which turns out to be his best screen work.
I remember seeing this back in college and loved it, well, I just watched it again for flashback kicks and guess what, it's still a fun feel good movie.
80s teen-movie queen Lea Thompson and Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson star in this quaintly nostalgic film which addresses the efficacy of casual sex. The film is based on a play by the same name, and it came at an interesting juncture in history; the mid-80s saw the sexual revolution winding down & people were becoming more & more aware of the really nasty STDs being spread around - including the "brand new" one known as AIDS. This caused many people to do a lot of re-thinking about their nocturnal habits, and this is the focus of the present film.Lea Thompson plays a promiscuous woman who finds herself examing her dangerous practices. She and her much-less sexually experienced friend (Jackson) take off to spend time at a health spa (another staple of the mid-80s!) to ensure that any men they happen to sleep with will be safe. While there, they come across an ego maniac from Jersey (played by the venerable Andrew Dice Clay) who believes he knows what women want. Interestingly, all three characters go through some poignant transformations during the film.The special features contain an alternate ending. I'm glad they didn't use it as it was very deus ex machina. That said, it's still worth viewing as Thompson is a knockout while wearing a wedding dress!Some may argue that the regular ending is a bit contrived, but I would disagree. For me, it factored into the whole premise of the plot, which was that the mid-80s was a time in which people needed to look past sex & start thinking more about relationships. For me, the movie is actually trenchant in its portrayal of how life doesn't always turn out the way we think it will. People change, and occasionally they even improve upon what they were previously.As Lea Thompson's #1 fan, I find it my duty to extol all of her movies. That said, this is a great 80s flick whether you're a big fan of her's or not. The fact that we get a few shots of both girls' posteriors is an added bonus, although the film shied away from having a whole lot of skin in it (despite several opportunities!). If you're looking for a Romantic Comedy that can also double as a satire, you can do a lot worse than this one!
Just because a movie doesn't have anything "new" to say, it doesn't mean that it's not good or has nothing at all to say. I guess it would be tough to critique movies all the time, because you'd always want something new, and you'd rarely get it. I love this movie, even though I also think it's the wrong title. It's one I can watch over & over and never get tired of it.
This movie is funny,romantic,silly,intelligent.Too bad the title is so wrong for it as this movie is not about casual sex but the desire for a real relationship. Andrew Dice CLay is wonderful as the "Vin Man" who is really a loving man who just wants to meet the right woman. Hollywood overlooked Andrew Dice Clay's perfect performance & still has not put him in another excellent role that fit him so well & at this point his looks aren't what they were in this 1987 romantic comedy. Victoria Jackson & Lea Thompson are just right in their roles as love-seeking women in the latter 1980's of safe sex- not just to avoid STDS such as the Aids disease but to also avoid getting emotionally involved with the wrong guy- and to avoid getting hurt yet again. This is an excellent comedy on dvd although it has NO extra features so maybe in the future there will be a Special edition as this is already it's 2nd time on dvd.
Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson portray two lonely ditzes who take avacation to a resort that is almost completely inhabited by young sexaddicted men. The women are desperate and find themselves willing to giveinto the demands of sex addicts. Absolutely lame and the script offers nonewsurprises.
This review is from: Casual Sex? (Amazon Instant Video) I missed this one when it first come out...so glade to have ran across it. Very enjoyable to watch.
This review is from: Casual Sex? (Amazon Instant Video) My best friends and I quote this movie Alllllll the time! It is a MUST see for sure! Powerful film. :o)
Casual sex is the classic 80's movie about that very subject. Several great performances especially by a young andrew dice clay. Only down side to this movie on Dvd is that there aren't any extra features like a trailer or behind the scenes.
Dice Clay proved he was more than just DICE. Lea Thompson showed that shecould do comedy & that she looked so good on a nude beach. I readsomeplacethat when they first tested the film Lea & Dice did not get together as inthe final version. The test audience wanted the unlucky Dice to get thegirlin the end. I totally agree that ending would have been dumb if it justended with DICE back in NYC alone. It needed to happen. All in all it wasagood 80's flick. I still watch it when its on TV. For you tv versionbuffs,the TV edit has more scenes with Lea & Victoria outside of Lea bedroomaftershe makes it with that bad actor wannabe. Do I smell a directors cut?
