It's All About Relationships
Like most movies centered on orgies, Foam Party is about relationships. With so many main characters, it does well to concentrate on three or four pairs of people, with others, less fully fleshed out, linking events or providing breaks from the main plots. As the movie begins, we learn that various characters have been dumped, are unsatisfied, or are questioning their orientation. There's a virgin, one person is uncomfortable with explicit language, another is seeking revenge, and so on. Providing contrast, background characters seem to be having a fine old time with no holds barred.
Some especially diverse scenes of gay male sex, although not exposing private parts other than butts, will make some of us uncomfortable. But that was adequately acknowledged within the film, by the widely ranging degrees of comfort of the folks at the party, gay or straight, male or female. Finding one's own comfort zone while expanding horizons is a large part of what this movie is about. People looking for nudity won't find much here, but there is a smorgasbord of simulated sex.
Although the acting is fine and the characters are believable, Foam Party tries to do too much too fast. The characters faced problems or doubts too substantial to be resolved so quickly, over the course of a party lasting only one day. It's mostly a happy movie. Call it a middle of the road medley of romance stories, neither horrible nor great.
