Relax It's Just Sex

Movie Summary

Director:
P.J. Castellaneta
Released:
2000
Rating:
R
A captivating poly-sexual, multiracial romantic comedy that features an impressive Hollywood-studded cast and revolves around the tangled relationships and love affairs of an extended group of close-knit friends. They include the sexy, straight ringleader Tara (Bound's Jennifer Tilly) who's desperate to have a child with Gus (Timothy Paul Perez); her best friend Vincey (Mitchell Anderson of "Party of Five"), a love-lorn gay playwright; lesbian Robin (Tank Girl's Lori Petty), who pines after the voluptuous Sarina (Cynda Williams) who in turn is in a dying long-term affair with Megan (Serena Scott Thomas) who claims the two haven't had good sex since Martina won at Wimbledon. Also are in the cast are T.C. Carson as a black gay artist with unconventional beliefs and Eddie Garcia as an HIV+ gay Latino. In a memorable cameo is Academy Award nominee Paul Winfield as Auntie Mahalia. How this diverse group of people navigate the treacherous waters of romance, love and sex (not always in that order) is played out in this alternately funny and touching film. Especially memorable are the mousy-voiced titan Tilly who gives a wonderful performance as a woman who cherishes her friendships, and Mitchell as the love-hungry gay man who mistakes swallowing for commitment, dates for affairs and homophobia as a declaration of war. Castallaneta, whose previous feature film was the inventive Together Alone, offers assured direction infused with witty dialogue and familiar characters in a film that will entertain and tug at your heartstrings.moreless
