Nowadays the topic of dating seems to be all around us. We have dating sites, hook up apps, and now a new movie that revolves around open relationships, the pursuit of a three sum and 10 rules to keep you out of trouble with your sexual instincts.
I’m talking about Leslie Greif’s newest film 10 Rules For Sleeping Around. The title is certainly catchy, but unfortunately that’s all this movie delivers.
It seems like a poor attempt at rebooting the cult classic American Pie franchise with sexual escapades and open relationships. The movie is centered on two couples that are dealing with the temptation of infidelity, while trying to adhere to 10 rules that are vaguely mentioned in the film. Shocking, given the title of the film.
The comedy felt forced, the acting was sub par and the plot is weaker than the Malaysian MH370 search team. Too soon? The movie runs about 94 minutes that I will never get back but at least I can save you from wasting your hard earned money, precious time, and sanity.
In preparation for it’s release, they held a red carpet screening at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. The film was so highly anticipated, several of its main stars failed to show up. I wouldn’t either if I was involved in this production. A highlight of the red carpet was the arrival of Gene Simmons and life partner Shannon Tweed.
I got a chance to catch up with Simmons, who recently got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Despite the controversy with that, he was in good spirit and excited to learn what rules he should be implementing to keep a healthy and vital open relationship.
In light of the movie, I asked both Gene and Shannon where the craziest place they had sex, and to my surprise, it was not a rock star answer I was hoping to hear.
Gene said, “…the bathroom floor was the craziest place” while Shannon claims on top of the pool table. I asked all attendees if they had one rule of their own to sleeping around and all agree to not sleep around, unless you want to relate to 65% of the billboards in Hollywood advertising some sort of an STD check.
All in all, if you’re into a cheesy indie movie that lacks to deliver any substance, this film is just for you, otherwise, save yourself a trip to the theater and make the most of your hourly wage.
