The Sure Thing

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 6, 2015

More secular/Jewish than Christian/Christmas, I think. But it does take place over the December break. Road trip! Starts with crass males, making crassly male assumptions. These are complicated when said males come into contact with actually sentient, independent, intelligent females. Suddenly crassness starts to have a tough time of it. Comedy, with a message for its intended audience: appetite notwithstanding, you have to be ethical. Sex-comedy (which, after all, acknowledges a challenge/question/problem that has to be faced on one’s way to healthy, happy, fulfilling adult relationships) surprisingly and quite sweetly turns into something more fraternal, and even chivalric. Funny, and gets around to setting a good example to boot.
