Using sexuality in a comedy has stimulated a wave of movie making but has it gone too far?  Using every expletive possible from today's amoral vocabulary For a Good Time, Call… opens in theaters with an attempt to titillate and shock audiences.  Well it does the latter for sure, but for the most part it's the ladies who are taking ...
