Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this independent comedy, three buddies who have been sharing their thoughts on love and sex suddenly find that that's not all they're sharing. Stylish stockbroker Brad (Brian Van Holt), bohemian hipster Zeke (Zorie Barber), and socially inept Jonathan (Jonathan Abrahams) get together with their married friend Eric (Judah Domke) every Sunday at the same coffee shop to discuss whatever is on their minds -- which usually turns out to be women. While most weeks the conversation quickly turns to a crude exchange of views on "the art of seduction," one Sunday Brad, Zeke, and Jonathan all have the same remarkable bit of news for Eric: They've fallen in love. After comparing notes, however, they realize that they are all in love with the same woman, Mia (Amanda Peet). Whipped was the feature debut for writer and director Peter M. Cohen.
