Sex and Breakfast (2007) - 3 Stars

I don't know about you but after watching "Home Alone," it's hard for me to take Macaulay Culkin seriously in a movie that involves sex. The girls do a better job in the acting department but I felt no passion or pity for either couple and considering the dark powerful topic, the movie should have been stronger in making it's points.

Ellis (Kuno Becker), and Renee (Eliza Dushku), are in a relationship that is loosing steam and winding downhill. Though they still care and love each other, their relationship is lacking in any enthusiasm. Renee suggests they spice their love life up but bringing another person into their bedroom. Meanwhile, James (Macaulay Culkin), and Heather (Alexis Dziena). Heather is unable to achieve the big "O" and feels that perhaps opening their relationship up to another couple might bring the excitement back and add what she needs to be satisfied.

Enter therapist Dr. Wellbridge (Joanna Miles), who arranges the two couples to meet in a private setting and swap partners. Jealousy, and insecurity are also in the room and even though Heather is finally able reach full satisfaction, both couples learn there is more to love, than sex and breakfast.
