Written, directed, and produced by Peter M Cohen, WHIPPED is about four college buddies, who get together once a week to discuss their recent sexual exploits. Things get complicated when they realise they've begun to chase the same girl, the beautiful Mia (Amanda Peet). As they find themselves battling with each other for Mia's affection, they begin to question their past actions, wondering who will walk away with the grand prize.
Three to one may sound like fairly good odds, but it depends upon the game: when the "one" is one very irresistible woman and the "three" are three hopelessly smitten guys ... the deck is pretty stacked. In the battle of the sexes, the first rule is never to underestimate the power of a woman ... you may just end up WHIPPED [(adjective) under a woman's spell, thereby acting in an extraordinary manner].
When sweet and sexy Mia captures the hearts of three best friends, it's a recipe for disaster, and the end of their "scamming," [(verb) the art of picking up women, scoring] stories at the local diner. For men who seem to gain as much satisfaction from talking about their sexual conquests as they do from the actual sex, this is a dire state of affairs. Nothing could be more unsettling to their world of comic wooings. Brad (Brian Van Holt), Zeke (Zorie Barber) and Jonathan (Jonathan Abrahams) offer an uncompromising and mordantly funny observation of the male ego in its natural habitat-- standard operating procedure for young bachelors in the New York City dating scene. As self-proclaimed lady-killers, they live for their Sunday brunch ritual, which involves endless stories of seduction and graphic morning-after details.
The captivating Mia, however, quickly brings their self-aggrandizing game and talk to a screeching halt. Stunning, smart, and with a genuine interest in each guy's occupation or pastime, Mia appears to be their dream girl. The dining trio has never met anyone like her. Furthermore, with her bold and carefree sensuality, Mia is quite likely--unbeknownst to them--their female alter ego. Suddenly, the seduction game has been moved on to a higher playing field. They might actually be out of their league.
Can the men actually survive this bizarre love square and departure from their weekly routine? Is their married friend, Eric (Judah Donke), who lives vicariously through their exploits, accurate in claiming they've become WHIPPED?
