Three best friends, Jason, Daniel and Mikey, make a pact to stay single and just have fun with women. They all agree to avoid serious relationships in order to support Mikey, whose wife has just left him for another man.

During their pact, both Jason and Daniel fall in love. And Mikey ends up sleeping with his wife in secret. Will they be able to resist the strength of their feelings in order to obey the rules of the pact? Or will love be the winner in the end?

Not only was this film an absolute den of testosterone, but it was also a den of stereotypes about women. Here is a platform for playing out every overblown difference, every fantastical dichotomy between men and women. What a pity the male characters were subsumed with asserting their masculinity.

There are some funny moments in this film, but possibly too many dick jokes for any intelligent person to be able to handle in one evening.

There is a gap in the market for a really good rom com with some kick-ass women, a smart comedic element, and a script that leads you somewhere new. So after waiting quite some time for a new rom com to hit the shelves, I was a bit disappointed in this one.
