HELLCATS (2008)

From the DVD cover and that name I was expecting this to be some sexy crazy female oriented sex comedy, but no it's actually a pretty subdued film that reminded me a lot of Ang Lee's EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN...except for the fact that EDMW was a fucking masterpiece and this movie is just barely above average.

You have three females (their relationship isn't important), each represents a different age bracket: teen, late 20's and early 40's. All three are having relationship problems. The teen has a boyfriend, but she accidentally discovers she actually has the hots for her female best friend. The middle chick has a slacker musician boyfriend who just sits around his messy apartment doing nothing...except cheating! She dumps him and starts dating a handsome beau hunk who's really nice, but she still has feeling for the loser dude. The older female starts a sex-based relationship with a younger man, but maybe it's based on more than sex.

I liked the movie. The director did an outstanding job of capturing three distinctly different females and chronicling the separate problems they faced, but it could have been a little shorter. Also that song they used towards the end was fucking horrendous! Good acting, intriguing stories, non-existent sex scenes, no nudity, worth watching if you can find a copy, but nothing worth going out of your way for.
