Producer-turned-director Lane Janger also stars in this sexual comedy of manners about a woman who turns her groom-to-be's sapphic fantasies back on him. Just a few weeks before he's due to be married, fireman Anthony (Janger) decides that it's now-or-never time for his fantasy of making love to his fiancée, Amy (Joelle Carter), and another woman at the same time. Although she has repeatedly rejected such a scenario, this time an angry Amy agrees -- as long as Anthony will make love with her and another man at the same time. Soon, the couple find themselves going on… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In his feature debut, Langer continues to develop the trend begun by him as producer of I Think I Do (a better film), i.e. to construct a romantic comedy that blends gay and straight characters that co-exist in the same community; the result is uneven."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"A mildly amusing comedy that blends straight and gay characters together"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The dirty talk reveals motives that are unfashionably--dishonestly--square."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"A story like Just One Time is inevitable -- and welcome -- in an age of advanced sexual freedom and experimentation. But someone with more respect for women should take another whack at it."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"This isn't a groundbreaking film, or even a particularly memorable one."
‑ Loey Lockerby, Nitrate Online
"Just One Time is a bedroom farce with little sex or humor, a weak premise and spotty acting. But it's mildly enjoyable anyway, thanks to a sneaky charm."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"Just One Time began life as a sharply written short film, but as a feature it's unmemorable."
‑ Shlomo Schwartzberg, Boxoffice Magazine
"It's not a bad way to spend 90 minutes, but not fantastic cinema either."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Instead of making people a little bit uncomfortable and poking holes in various sexual taboos, Janger's film floats past the eyes without leaving anything behind."
‑ Rod Armstrong, Reel.com
"Just One Time is definitely onto something, but unfortunately, like Amy and Michelle, or Anthony and Victor, it never goes far enough."
‑ Stephen Tropiano, PopMatters
"Just One Time, with its breezy jokiness, is more sitcom than smut, but at 90 minutes without a laugh track or commercial break, it hardly holds its own against an average episode of Dharma and Greg or Friends."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Had Just One Time been closer to 60 minutes in length, filmed in front of a barking studio audience and presided over by a guy named Springer, I might have been moderately amused."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"This is not great, or risk-taking, filmmaking, but it does have a certain undeniable charm."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The script is unremarkable, as is [Janger's] direction and acting, but winning performances save it from total negligibility."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Jennifer Esposito spices up the cast as the all-knowing butch across the street. But a note to all hetero guys already pulling out their eight bucks: There are no scenes to write Penthouse about."
