Eric, a thirty-something party animal famous among his close circle of friends for his lavish summer theme parties at his father's swanky Hamptons pad. But when members of the crew start settling down, and Eric's dad announces plans to sell the beach house, Eric decides it's time for one last bash to go out with a proverbial bang, a good old-fashioned orgy. The only obstacles to overcome are actually convincing each of his reluctant friends to join in on the bacchanal, and an inconveniently blossoming romance with the real estate agent threatening to sell the house out from under him before the main event can even take place.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor This is a comedy without wit and soul.
Washington PostFull Review Above Average ...the cast is talented - the chemistry between characters is solid, comedic timing is impeccable and the actors seem to be having fun, which may prove contagious for audience members.
NY PostFull Review Very Poor Chlamydia, gonorrhea and Jason Sudeikis are three reasons to stay well clear of "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy," but they're not the only ones.

When Eric Keppler‟s (JASON SUDEIKIS) father Jerry (DON JOHNSON) informs the
group that he plans to sell their beloved Hamptons getaway, the gang finds it
hard to face the reality that the summers they have known since their teenage
years are coming to an end. Memories of infamous themed house parties date back
to their high school days and this news is devastating to the long time friends.
In an effort to go out with a bang, Eric wants to throw one last epic party to
trump all others and decides to orchestrate an orgy among him and his friends.
At first, no one except the always inappropriate Mike McCrudden (TYLER LABINE)
is on board but slowly, one by one the others agree to participate. Each
thinking that by joining, it might help him/her resolve some personal issue. Sue
Plummer (MICHELLE BORTH) sees it as a chance to be with Eric after a missed
opportunity years ago. Laura LaCarubba (LINDSAY SLOANE) thinks it might help her
get past her body image issues. Alison Lobel (LAKE BELL) is coming off a bad
break up and thinks it will be a nice change from the restrictions of a
relationship. Doug Duquez (MARTIN STARR) and Willow Talbot (ANGELA SARAFYAN)
think it might help their on again off again romance. Adam Richman (NICK KROLL)
has just been fired from a job that controlled the entirety of his 20s so he
vows to make his 30s memorable and decides an orgy is just the thing to kick it
Intentionally not included are Glenn (WILL FORTE) and Kate (LUCY PUNCH) who
already have a child and are about to get married. Unfortunately, the couple
learns of the orgy on their wedding day and become furious that their best
friends excluded them from this monumental event. They still believe that
despite being parents and newlyweds, they are still hip and cool.
With the threat of a pending sale, Eric tries as hard as he can to ensure
that the house does not get sold until after the Labor Day weekend orgy party.
To do this, Eric begins dating one of his realtors, Kelly (LESLIE BIBB), in an
effort to convince her to hold off. When he unexpectedly begins to develop
serious feelings for her, he starts to second guess his participation in the
orgy and threatens to dismantle the entire plan.
No one could have anticipated how the evening would change their lives and
the lessons that would be learned from one night of debauchery.
