Performers, Cast and Crew:
This frank--and frankly hilarious--Canadian indie certainly lives up to its risqué title, but there's more going on in than just sex in this debut from writer/director Martin Gero. Though the filmmaker has plenty of experience from his work on sci-fi favorite STARGATE: ATLANTIS, this comedy presents a reality-based look at relationships in the real world. YPF follows one night in the lives of four couples and one threesome. There's a pair on their first date, with a British bad boy (Callum Blue) trying to seduce his young coworker (Diora Baird). Meanwhile, a longtime couple (Kristin Booth and Josh Dean) attempt drastic measures to drag themselves out of their sexual rut. Though Mia (Sonja Bennett) and Eric (Josh Cooke) have ended their relationship, they try to reconnect on a physical level, but some old feelings resurface. Two close friends (Carly of POPULAR fame and writer Aaron Abrams) decide to add a new dimension to their relationship, but it turns out that there may be some emotions hidden beneath their buddy-buddy interaction. And finally, there's the awkward contact between two roommates at war (Peter Oldring and Ennis Esmer) who can only agree on the hotness of one of their girlfriends (Natalie Lisinska), but they decide to spend the night as a trio. YPF is fresh and funny, and it's hard not to identify with at least one of the pairings. The dialogue is witty, but it never feels rehearsed. Though most of the actors are unknown south of the Canadian border, each of them gives a heartfelt, genuine performance that should lead to more work in the future.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Brutally honest and hilarious, YPF follows four couples (and one adventuresome threesome) through one night in pursuit of a shared goal: getting laid. But getting to the climax proves far more complicated than any of them imagined...
A hot young cast that includes Callum Blue (TV's Dead Like Me) and Diora Baird (Wedding Crashers) brings this smart, sophisticated and revealing story to life as each set of partners learns that hooking up can be f***ing crazy.
