We gave it a D

The first 20 minutes of Donkey Punch look like an Abercrombie & Fitch ad: Three twentysomething women on vacay decide to party on a luxury yacht with four studly strangers. But things get decidedly unpretty once they do some Ecstasy: An aggressive orgy leads to an accidental death, then paranoia and panic. The claustrophobic open-water setting might have worked but for the uncomfortably explicit sex scene and flashy gore. In fact, this predictable film wouldn’t be effective anywhere outside a DARE program. D
