Consensus: Brisk, funny, and sweetly raunchy, For a Good Time, Call... adds to the recent string of R-rated female comedies while serving as an overdue coming out party for the charming Ari Graynor.

Watching [Travis] add his kitschy touch to such a witless, faux-edgy movie can only be described as a Travis-ty.

The film is worth seeing for the humor and for its high level of energy, but it falls short of being the "complete package."

It's a comedy that isn't always funny as it struggles to find the right tone between raunchy and sweet. It celebrates female friendship in a way few movies do, but good intentions don't always make for a good film.

Unfortunately Travis lacks the comedic skill and humanistic insight to make this anything more than Judd Apatow lite.

Is it one for the ages? No. Is it a good time? Good enough.

the concept was rife with possibilities that could synergize with Graynor's fresh appeal as well as her rising-star status. Neither the possibilities nor the synergy happens, mainly due to an underdeveloped story.

A fun, healthy, sexy comedy that pulls no punches and focuses on a realistic female friendship and the powerful dynamic that sexuality plays in our lives.

The film (a) is not recommended for the prudish and (b) does not live up to its title.

Sure, there's some ribald humor, and the subject matter is clearly edgy. However, it's really a sweet story of friendship wrapped in a sexy package.

This sitcom style comedy is too raunchy, over the top, and just plain not interesting enough to hold the attention of all but the least demanding comedy fans.… More

A woman invested film, Call... never tries to take itself too seriously, but comes up short in appealing to women exclusively or to men at all. It's… More
