trick | 1999 | R | - 7.1.6

A night in the lives of an aspiring Broadway songwriter (Christian Campbell) and a hunky go-go dancer (John Paul Pitoc) who trek around New York City trying to find a place to be alone. Also with Tori Spelling, Stephen Hayes, Clinton Leupp, Lorri Bagley, Kevin Chamberlin, Lacey Kohl, Missi Pyle, Brad Beyer, Will Keenan, Helen Hanft, Eric Bernat and Michele Brilliant. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots and lots of sexual innuendo (including references -- sometimes graphic -- to fellatio, sodomy, size of male genitalia, lesbianism, homosexuality, ejaculation, bestiality, orgies, ménage a trois and prostitution) and some kissing, sometimes passionate (a couple of kisses are between a man and woman and a couple are between men). A man takes off his shirt, unzips his pants (we see some of his underwear), lies on a bed, puts another man's hand on his chest and moves it toward his crotch (the man pulls his hand away); later, one rubs the other's chest, both remove their pants (we see them both in their underwear) and one sits underneath a piano while the other plays (it's implied that he wants to perform fellatio on the other, but nothing happens, nothing is visible, and they both eventually get dressed again). We see a man wrapped in a sheet and a woman holding a sheet over her chest, interrupted by a couple of men during intercourse; the woman eventually drops the sheet and we see her bare breasts for an extended period of time while she talks to the men. We see the bare back of a man lying on top of a woman and kissing her passionately; also, we see a shirtless man and sheet-covered woman in bed together, presumably post-coitus. A man propositions another and a man licks his lips while looking at another. During an extended bar scene, a man wearing a thong (most of his bare buttocks is visible) dances suggestively in front of many men (a few put money in the front of his thong). We see part of a man's bare buttocks when he shows a few others a tattoo there. We see lots of shirtless men dancing in a club.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Homosexuality, one-night stands, falling in love, unfaithfulness, songwriting for Broadway, the theater.

MESSAGE - Spending the night with someone without sexual contact is a better way to get to know him (or her) and begin a potential relationship.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
