Women in Trouble (2009)

Cast: Carla Gugino, Adrianne Palicki, Connie Britton, more...
Director: Sebastian Gutierrez
    see all cast/crew...
Studio: Screen Media
Running Time: 90 min.

Filmmaker Sebastian Gutierrez writes and directs this ensemble comedy following ten Los Angeles women over the course of 24 hours. When porn starlet Electra Luxx (Carla Gugino) discovers that she's pregnant, her wild world of pleasure and excess is suddenly turned upside down. Subsequently stuck in an elevator with neurotic Doris (Connie Britton), Electra realizes she's standing at a pivotal crossroads in life. Meanwhile, adult film up-and-comer Holly Rocket (Adrianne Palicki) struggles with her reluctance to go girl-on-girl in front of the cameras by putting on a private show with her sexy friend Bambi (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a therapist (Sarah Clarke) turns to the bottle after discovering her husband has been unfaithful, a flight attendant (Marley Shelton) applies for membership in the Mile High Club with a famous passenger, and a precocious teen (Isabella Gutierrez) realizes that the adults in her life aren't nearly as well adjusted as they'd like her to believe. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Better than I'd been told. by emdoub April 13, 2013 - 10:01 PM PDT
It's not that it's a quirky comedy, more wry than sidesplitting - it's that it so doesn't follow in any footsteps. Sure, the whole 'a bunch of people who don't know each other relate over a short timeframe' structure got terribly popular after 'Crash', and John D. MacDonald wrote novels with that structure for decades - it's not the structure that's fresh. This ensemble is, largely, women either being unabashedly raunchy about sex, or dealing with other women who are, with heart and soul in the interactions. Watching this is almost voyeuristic - not because of the ample amount of skin shown (though none of it is terribly blatant or explicit, mostly bra and panties), but because women are rarely this honest about sex where any man can see it.

Over The Top & Out Of This World !!!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
