The storyline in the beginning will bore you, but soon it gets better. I really enjoyed it, it was well written and they did a good job of bring the cast together.

The Charisma Of A New Concept.
Edward S. Brown | Atlanta, GA | 07/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Fling" is one of those "sleeper" hits. The kind of movie that doesn't have blockbuster appeal, but creates its own cult following on the DVD scene. Why? Because it challenges conventional thinking in ways that frighten mainstream mores. To engage in romantic relationships, where each party isn't attempting to the own the other, is counterintuitive to our Judeo-Christian socialization. "Fling" makes an overt commentary that might be missed by the typical viewer--conform or be alone. Granted, it's difficult to be emotionally detached and compartmentalized when feelings emerge in relationships. But, does the emotional conflict derive because we legitimately feel expectations from love or have we been socialized to respond a certain way, because of the societal scripts we read from? If we respond emotionally from the framework of our socialization, I suspect it'll be the later--we feel emotional connection from our psychological scripts.

"Fling" attempts to dissect and explore the emotional possibilities of "Free Love." In keeping with conventional wisdom, Hollywood let's the explorer lose in the end. Not because the idea is preposterous, but because "Free Love" would disrupt life as we know it.

I highly recommend "Fling" to the intellectually enlightened.

Fling excitement at this film

"A movie that explores modern relationships between those now in their twenties. The idea of an open relationship might seem weird or unnatural to some and the movie explores this notion and tries to show the reasoning behind being in an open relationship."
Good movie loved the soundtrack
Faye A. Quitoriano | CLOVIS, CALIFORNIA United States | 07/19/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I wasn't sure that I would like this movie when I rented it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It made me think about things that normally I wouldn't have (I love it when a movie does that). Does anyone know where to find the soundtrack? I am rarely impressed with movie soundtracks but this one was excellent!"
