"Excellent dialogue, one liners, reasonable acting; not to be taken seriously, this movie is really into character development. If you enjoyed Friends and Lovers, you'll like this one."
Good acting, terrible story
(3 out of 5 stars)
"though the actors are well casts, the movie just doesn't really work. The film is so dark from the beginning (look wise I mean) it is hard to watch. Also, even though this was a low budget indie, that doesn't make up for sloppy film making. Though Rachel Hunter has no purpose in this film and they shouldn't waste money on hiring her for that little cameo (could have spent money to reshot the scene when you can see the camera guy) the rest of the cast is great, especially Jonathan Silverman and Jessica Lundy as the sarcastic divorced couple who broke up over a magor misunder standing. Watch Silverman as he confesses his dirty little secret"
A Terrific, Thought Provoking Laffer!

""Just A Little Harmless Sex" combines a universally laffable situation, a terrific cast, and some of the snappiest dialogue to come out of the independent filmmaking of the nineties. Lauren Hutton makes a return to the big screen with a brilliant performance as the sagely, yet alluring matron, overseeing her thirty-something children and their matrimonial indescretions. Jonathan Silverman fans won't be disappointed either. I've screened this film a few times now and never fail to discover new things to laugh at. I'm sure this will pop up on top 10 lists in the future as one of the best comedies of recent times for those fortunate enough to have seen it."
Just a little harmless fun

"Here is a film that pokes fun at both men & women, taking full advantage of every stereotype imaginable. In short, it does precisely what a light Romantic comedy is supposed to do! It's a whole lot of harmless fun along the way, too.The plotline centers around the age-old problem of the straying husband. In this case, however, the fellow does not have a pre-meditated inclination to cheat on his wife. Rather, he picks up a stranded motorist (who somehow ends up being a courtesan) and gets caught by what seems to be an anti-prostitute SWAT team. And, his luck seems to go from bad to worse from there!After his wife & her friends & her mother find out, the poor fellow begins his penance and all of the typical human rituals of attempting to get her to take him back. Thanks to his two buddies, the whole situation is put in the most zany perspective imaginable!The film is almost a real-time movie as 90% of it takes place in a bar. One would think that the one-setting-framework would tend to get tedious, but there are enough twists & turns in the storyline to keep the viewer interested.As is so often the case these days, you get the typical plain Jane knockout (capably played by Kimberly Williams). However, I could tell from the get-go that she was no plain Jane, no matter how much they tried to make her look like a geek.If you want a light-hearted look at the serious issue of infidelity, this one would appear to be a clear-cut winner. Or, if you're simply in the market for another Romantic Comedy & good fun, you can do a whole lot worse than a little harmless sex."
A nice little "real" movie

"While not a "Politcally correct" film, this movie is fun and the characters are real. Go hang around any club and you'll find "them". It's a slice of urban Gen X that rings true. Kimberly Williams and Jessica Lundy are great, Jonathan Silverman and buds are funny and portray guys just like the ones I know."
