A woman who meddles in the romantic affairs of her sisters finds herself facing off against the aggravated boyfriends in
Gerri Pare (Catholic News Service) says the film "is very promarriage and profamily." But good values do not necessarily make a good movie. "The three sisters and their respective loves are severely underwritten," Pare explains. "You get no sense of why the three women can't think for themselves, and their frustrated men are mostly ciphers. The women are demanding respect—and not to be seen as just sex objects—yet down 'n' dirty sex is all they cackle about. The story is attractively filmed, but the script nose-dives before the end with a ridiculous plot development that really makes no sense before launching into the clichéd ending."
Bob Nusser (Preview) says, "The heavy emphasis on sexually suggestive and sexually oriented dialogue, along with numerous instances of objectionable language, earn this one an unacceptable rating."
