    The politics get pretty short shrift, but cigarettes and liquor are everywhere.
  2. 40
    This peculiar little comedy, shot on digital video, gets points for editorial pizzazz, but earns a big zero for content.
  3. Structurally, Sex, Politics and Cocktails is wildly, almost frantically inventive, with techniques ranging from stop-motion to split-screen to silent film-style intertitles. But no amount of directorial trickery can mask the essential vacuousness of the story and its characters.
  4. Enthusiastic performances help, but without a logical script or confident direction, the fizz very quickly goes flat.
  5. Reviewed by: Patrick Z. McGavin
    The result is TV flavored, less a narrative than a haphazard succession of vignettes populated by crude stereotypes instead of credible characters.
  6. Julien Hernandez's Sex, Politics & Cocktails gives all three a bad name.
  7. Reviewed by: Matt Singer
    Overwhelmingly poor camerawork helps obscure the deficiencies in the dialogue but can't conceal a sparse plot stretched to feature length by an endless parade of lame sketches.
  8. 0
    A relentlessly dull film that's shot on eyeball-gougingly ugly digital video.

    Horrible, and there is nothing sexy about that.

    Please, even if someone actually were sexy (and he's not), that doesn't make a movie good.
