Just One TimeAmy (Joelle Carter, When Will I Be Loved, American Pie 2), a lawyer, and Anthony (writer/director Lane Janger), a fireman, are a young New York couple about to be married. Anthony fantasizes about Amy and another woman and really wants a threesome before they say their vows. The idea bothers Amy, but she agrees on one condition …. they must also have a menage a trois with another man.

Unbeknownst to Anthony, Amy invites their young gay neighbor Victor (Guillermo Díaz, Half Baked, Nowhere) to participate, when Anthony was no doubt expecting a straight man. She insists that he hold up his end of the bargain to make a point and get rid of that fantasy she feels is hanging over her head.

Meanwhile, Amy starts looking for a likely female candidate by visiting the local women’s bookstore and then settles on their lesbian neighbor Michelle (Jennifer Esposito, Kiss Me Guido), who restores furniture in a nearby store. Of course Anthony doesn’t actually want it to be a lesbian. He wants some kind of straight fantasy woman.

When Anthony sees them kissing, he becomes jealous and is afraid that the two women will fall in love, leaving him out of the picture. She gets angry. He becomes desperate to fix it, but all is well in the end. Even Michelle and Victor find loves of their own.

It’s a cute comedy that tackles the hypocrisy of the lesbian fantasy for straight men. Good for a bit of light movie watching time. (AB)
