In this 2009 mildly amusing comedy, absence really doesn't make the
heart grow fonder. It just makes it go away and get naked. About to
graduate high school, Eugene and Cindi (Raquel Alessi) are still virgins,
and committed to staying that way. They even preach abstinence to middle-schoolers.
Then, during an after-prom party, as Eugene and Cindi decide it's time to
end their virginity, Eugene falls down the basement stairs and winds up in
a four-year coma. When he finally awakes, all Eugene can think about is
Cindi, until best-friend Trevor gives him the bad news by showing him the
center spread of the country's most popular men's magazine, containing
.... good ole' not-a-virgin-anymore Cindy. Devastated, he decides he must
go to the magazine's California mansion to see and talk to her, so he and
Trevor take off on a cross-country trip filled with misadventures.
This movie had a cute premise, and in fact some totally hilarious
scenes, but it was uneven and slow moving in parts, and overall kind of
silly. It was easy to lose interest during the slow parts. Close but no
cigar, guys. If I were rating it, I'd give it a 5 out of 10. The caps are
from the Blu-ray version.
