Young People Fucking (Y.P.F.)
Director Martin Gero turns his knowing lens on five different archetypal relationships in a caustic romantic comedy highlighting the amusing similarities and bizarre differences in human relationships. Sexually frustrated blonde Abby (Kristin Booth) is stuck in a domestic rut with her hyper sensitive boyfriend Andrew (Josh Dean); will the pair be able to smooth things out or could it be that their relationship was actually doomed from the very beginning? Yet while folks like Abby and Andrew are currently locked in to relationships, others like longtime friends Matt (Aaron Abrams) and Kristen… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The cast tries but rarely achieves an authenticity of emotional intimacy, as if everyone knows they're going to be cut away from -- how else to say it? -- prematurely."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"YPF caused a minor sensation at last year's Toronto Film Festival, but I guess the chance to see Canucks even partially disrobed is a selling point up there."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It's just a non-stop even flow of whining from people who have nothing to whine about."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Actually a pretty staid affair, showing much less nudity than most R-rated films and coming down firmly, for the most part, in the pro-monogamy camp."
‑ Shlomo Schwartzberg, Boxoffice Magazine
"It is, in short, a 'funny because it's true' comedy for adults, a potentially commercial film of the sort we should be making in this country. It has a sense of joy. No one in it ever contemplates suicide."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"A more accurate moniker for this sex comedy might be Attractive White People Nattering On."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"The jarring skips required for clockwork peeks into each sexual narrative turn all the participants into reductive character sketches, spouting pithy one-liners and sporting ready-to-wear emotions on their sleeves."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"The smaller scale also holds some solid indie charm."
‑ Monika Bartyzel, Cinematical
"Its willingness to tackle common, yet squirm-inducing sexual predicaments with blunt, sometimes hysterical wordplay will certainly command attention."
‑ KJ Doughton, Film Threat
"There's too much talk and not enough action in the balance and eventually the straitjacket structure of the script is a schematic that grows tiresome."
‑ Leonard Klady, Screen International
"Neither as extreme nor, for that matter, as interesting as its troublesome title."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"In truth, Canadian filmmaker Martin Gero's very funny and insightful feature debut is far less shocking than its detractors -- most of whom haven't even seen it -- would have you believe."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Like life, it's sweet, messy, awkward, and dull."
‑ Amy Nicholson, I.E. Weekly
"A smart and funny look at how people react under extreme sexual pressure."
‑ Mark Peikert, New York Press
"...a fast-paced and very funny look at contemporary relationships."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
