PCP on DVD - For A Good Time Call

I'm wrapping up naughty girls week today with the sex phone line comedy For a Good Time, Call...  Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend!

For a Good Time, Call... - 2012, rated R. My rating: 6 out of 10.

This film is the story of two roommates, Katie (Ari Graynor) and Lauren (Lauren Miller, who also co-wrote the film). Lauren has to move in with Katie due to the fact that she cannot afford to live in her old apartment after splitting from her boyfriend. When she moves in, she learns that Katie has a second job as a phone sex line operator to make more money. Soon, Lauren is helping her run the business and starts taking calls of her own, and the two frenemies actually become close friends, and discover new things about themselves that improve their lives.

The film is pretty funny in some places, but it is not as funny as I had hoped. There were some great cameos from Seth Rogen (Lauren Miller's real life husband) and Kevin Smith as callers to the girls' sex line. Those parts were probably among the highlights of the film. The film has its raunchy moments, but it could have gone even further and was kind of tame in places, given the subject matter. It's worth a watch if you've got nothing better to do, or haven't yet seen Bridesmaids, but if you miss this indie film you won't be the only one who does.
