A comedy about anal sex! Really? Yes and it is handled with tact with really no raunchiness in it. Oh my pushing the envelope in a mainstream film! Can I say daring and innovative?
Frank Tsigas (George Tramountanas) is a middle-aged family man packing a few extra pounds. His wife Laura (Kendra McDermott) prompted by Frank’s desire for a spicier sex life and her wish to see him shed some weight makes him a bet that if he can loose 50 pounds in three months there is a reward of anal sex awaiting him or as the film politely refers to it as “Browntown” or “chocolate cha cha”. Get it?
As it looks like Frank may win the bet Laura gets increasingly stressed out. Thank goodness for her friends that have a lighthearted view of the matter.
Frank is a professional blogger working for a blogging outfit and for years he has wanted to win “Pitchfest” a contest for bloggers and writers which if won means a publishing deal. Frank anonymously blogs about his bet and hits skyrocket.
If there is such a thing as “comedic tension” it is in this film. It should bring a smile, or more likely a smirk on your face.
I can’t tell you the ending.
Tramountanas as an actor and director has crafted a comedy about a delicate topic and he pulls it off. McDermott excels in her role as a wholesome suburban wife slightly confused and bewildered with the possible consequences of her bet.
You might want to think of this as a ground-breaking comedy and crafted to deal with a sensitive topic almost taking it to the level of a spoof aka chocolate cha cha.
The film arrives on digital platforms on March 22, 2022.
