This straight-to-video sex farce about two mixed-up couples swapping partners might deserve the "Woody Allen-esque" label it so desperately craves if it were at all amusing.
At an LA party, nerdy Michael (Serge Rodnunsky) meets the uninhibited Blaire (Jennifer Ciesar). After some witty repartee, they masturbate together. The next day Blaire shows up at Michael's looking for a place to stay. Michael already lives with his girlfriend Teri (Cindy Parker), but they agree
to let Blaire move in. Teri and Michael's relationship has stagnated--he blames her sexual conservatism--and having the flirtatious Blaire on the sofa doesn't help matters. Blaire left her boyfriend Ray (Ray Bennett) because she caught him having an affair; what she doesn't know is that Teri is
the other woman. Eventually, for various reasons, Michael and Blaire end up having sex in Ray's apartment. At the same time, in another room, Ray is having sex with Teri. After some very loud love-making, the couples discover each other and the truth comes out. Each professes love for his or her
new partner, and the living arrangements are adjusted accordingly. Soon, however, each is cheating on his or her new lover with the old one.
Serge Rodnunsky: writer, editor, producer, director, and star. At least it's obvious where to place the blame. The characters in LOVERS' LOVERS are meant to be funny or endearing, but they're just self-absorbed, irritating people spewing pretentious nonsense. As soon as the Dixieland jazz score
over the typeface credits gives way to a philosophically musing voice-over, you know you're in for yet another round of simulated Woody. Not even Allen himself is much good at this sort of thing any more; for the modestly talented Rodnunsky, it's a hopeless undertaking. (Nudity, sexual situations,profanity.)
