Eric (Jason Sudeikis) and his friends throw the best summer parties at his dad’s Hampton beach house; all that is about to change though, since his dad is putting the house up for sale.  Eric is bummed out, so he and his pals try to think up a great theme for their last big hurrah.  And as the title would suggest, this close group of friends decide on having an orgy on Labor Day weekend.

As the weeks pass and everyone gets closer and closer to the time when they will be having sex with their long-time friends, naturally some people are a little stressed out. Whether it is the guys worrying about performance, or the girls about their appearance, everyone is a little anxious.  To complicate things even more, Eric has fallen for his realtor, and doesn’t know how to bring up the fact of what’s going on at his dad’s place.  The group ends up having a great time, and it brings them all a little closer together, if you can believe that. In addition to Sudeikis; Nick Kroll, Leslie Bibb, LakeBell, Will Forte & Tyler Labine also star in this raunchy comedy.

Alex’s Thoughts:  This was one of those movie that was in and out of the theaters in a week, so I was pretty sure that it was either A) awful, or B) the name just put most people off.  After watching it, I would say it was probably the fact that people were too embarrassed to ask for a ticket to “that orgy movie”, because it is a pretty decent flick.  It has a good cast, especially the guys, all of whom are some very funny dudes.  There are some great lines back and forth between Eric and the realtor, and it seems like it was kind of forced at points, but was still really funny.  You can’t help but share in their awkwardness when it is orgy time, but you also sort of grown at the cheesiness of the whole thing once it gets going.  If you are in the mood for a good comedy with a bit of naughty in it, give this one a try.  Alex Rates This Movie 7.5/10

“I never thought I’d say this, but I need a break from watching this girl-on-girl… on-girl action. I need to check the Yankees score.”
