More Detail:

In PETER’S FRIENDS, a close-knit group of eccentrics reunite to celebrate New Year’s Eve, ten years after their university graduation. It is a weekend of nonstop bickering, out-of-control sexual desires and awkward mix-and-matching. Hosting the party is Peter (Stephen Fry), a bisexual who is stricken with the HIV virus. Having inherited his father’s British mansion, Peter invites his friends over for the weekend: Mary and Roger, who arrive burdened with their infant son’s death; Maggie, a shabby single who ends up fornicating with the maid’s grandson; Sarah, who is sleeping with a married man named Brian; and, Andrew (Kenneth Branagh), an inspiring playwright who created a successful TV sitcom and married the star, Carol, a neurotic, ego-centric dieter.

PETER’S FRIENDS brings to mind the words of Jeremiah 6:15: “Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush.” Nothing quite gels in this mediocre film. Characters nitpick and lock horns, but their annoying disputes are anything but funny. Most surprising is the lack of chemistry among the cast. PETER’S FRIENDS strains to show warmth and compassion, but doesn’t have any to spare.

Now more than ever we’re bombarded by darkness in media, movies, and TV. Movieguide® has fought back for almost 40 years, working within Hollywood to propel uplifting and positive content. We’re proud to say we’ve collaborated with some of the top industry players to influence and redeem entertainment for Jesus. Still, the most influential person in Hollywood is you. The viewer.

What you listen to, watch, and read has power. Movieguide® wants to give you the resources to empower the good and the beautiful. But we can’t do it alone. We need your support.

You can make a difference with as little as $7. It takes only a moment. If you can, consider supporting our ministry with a monthly gift. Thank you.
