Buffering (2011)


Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBBUnited Kingdom, 2011.  .  Screenplay by Darren Flaxstone, Christian Martin.  Cinematography by .  Produced by Christian Martin.  Film Editing by Darren Flaxstone.  

Seb and Aaron are a happy couple living in an unhappy economy. After they are both downsized at their jobs, it takes a while before they finally admit it to each other and, when they do, they discover that they are in so much debt that they could possibly lose everything including their house.

Thank God that sex sells, because when Aaron decides to film the two of them in bed and post the results online, the money starts pouring in and, should they keep up the activity, it could solve all their financial problems.  Problem is that Seb has no idea about being filmed, and Aaron stands to lose his relationship as well when his boyfriend finally finds out about it.

Darren Flaxstone and Christian Martin’s modern day comedy of bad manners cheats its audience of the truly fun experience it could be having here: while the film is definitely sexy as all hell, the comedy is rather middling and the situations not crazy enough. There are opportunities for great laughs that are missed, instead settling for a polite tone that belies the outrageous nature of the material (which includes a super hot neighbour’s son who may be willing to appear as a guest star, I mean, really).

Still, anyone with any interest in the bare flesh will not be disappointed by it.
