The Big Ask


David Krumholtz plays a man whose mother recently died of cancer.  To deal with his grief he brings his girlfriend and two other couple friends out to a rental house in the desert.  But their companionship is not all he's looking for.  As a way to deal with his emotions he wants to have sex with all three women together.  Awkwardness obviously ensues in this 'The Big Chill' meets 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' indie drama featuring Melanie Lynskey, Jason Ritter, Gillian Jacobs, Ahna O'Reilly, Zachary Knighton, French Stewart, and Ned Beatty (uncoincidentally father to the writer/director).  What it lacks in story it makes up for in chemistry.

'The Big Ask' is now available on Video on Demand.

Grade: B

Who is this movie for?  Thirtysomething bonding indie drama fans.
