    Suffers from a fatal misapprehension. It thinks it is about date rape, when actually it is about alcoholism.
  2. 40
    This flashy and ultimately conservative morality tale relies on shockingly frank sex talk to cover the fact that the characters are shockingly poorly developed.
  3. One of the most quietly powerful endings in recent memory.
  4. Constant shifts between past and present and between individual stories creates varying perspectives that add dimension and insight to material that might play tritely if presented in straightforward narrative form.
  5. Blunt, alternately prurient, funny and depressing.
  6. Like an episode of "Friends" where the entire cast has been given aphrodisiacs and locked up.
  7. Tries so hard to be cool that it forgets to be alive.

    Beneath its glitz, poses, and pub crawlers and club prowlers, it's an old-fashioned morality tale.
  9. All the young talent in Hollywood is not enough to energize a movie that takes forever to get nowhere.
  10. An ultra-stylized, empty mess.

    Fires nothing but blanks.
  12. 30
    A grim, sour view of single life.
  13. 34
    Plays out like a raunchy, substandard WB soap.
  14. Unhampered by imagination and driven solely by libido.

    I haven't got the slightest idea whether these characters are meant as satirical targets or as a reasonably fair cross-section of Today's Youth.

    With any luck, Body Shots will quickly slide into video obscurity.
  17. The kind of date movie that should do a lot to promote celibacy.
  18. More focused on surface than true revelation.
  19. Audiences everywhere will tune out long before the projector does.

    Flirts with the idea of insight.
  21. A distasteful zeitgeist cocktail tracking the booze-fueled sexcapades of eight repellent L.A. singles.
  22. 40
    A bleak, depressing film.
  23. 30
    All it really propagates is overly dramatic scenes plagiarized from last month's high school date rape seminar.

    It's not the sort of movie you watch; it's the sort that assaults you.

    A thinker's film about the ever-shifting paradigm of man-woman relationships.

    A creepy clinical voyeurism and condescending empathy that can't help but alienate its intended audience.

    Rapidly veers towards tired 80's territory rather than offering anything new and fresh.
