This year, Paul makes a desperate attempt to keep everyone together. His friends don’t cooperate. And everything reminds them of how far they have, in fact, not come. ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES starts as a parable of human evolution and develops as a lighthearted drama. Paul has prepared menus and conversation topics circling the question of how a species evolves. Sex is the catalyst, but sex is only the beginning. Paul’s wife, Julia, is ambivalent about being pregnant and has not yet told him about the pregnancy. When she finally does, Paul seems completely out of touch with her emotions, jeopardizing the future of their relationship. Stan has recently survived testicular cancer, but he’s far from feeling alive. Kate, Stan’s ex-girlfriend, abandoned him during his illness. Now Kate discovers that her friend Laura has designs on her former lover. Laura, ostensibly the least successful and least sexy, offers the most compassion and insight. Stan’s doctor has told him that sex, in his case, is medically uncertain. Kate tempts him with sex. Laura teaches him about love. Fisher, the consummate playboy, loses patience with his friends, especially Paul. Fisher is surprised to find that Julia sometimes shares his feelings. The two take a morning outing to a country donut stand where their flirtation becomes a betrayal. When Paul reveals his biggest biological find, the story of a recently discovered primate species, the Bonobos, the annual skinny dipping ritual becomes a ritual in a deeper sense. They learn the lesson of an evolutionary ancestor: sex is only a step on the way to truly loving one another.
Plot: A weekend in a summer house, where six late twenties friends have reunited. A series of life crises force them to confront their relationships and lives, leading them to discover what it really means to grow up.

witty, compelling, and original
Origin of the species is a wonderful, funny relationship movie. It is one of Amanda Peet’s first film. If you are a fan, this is a must see. The dialogue (an early work for author Robert Ackerman) is witty, compelling, and original. Snuggle up with your sweetie, grab some popcorn, and enjoy!!! I particularly enjoyed the Darwinian themes that are interwoven with the development of the relationship themes. The movie is well cast. The actors clearly develop a camaraderie and personal chemistry that enhances the plot.The setting is absolutely beautiful. This movie is a feast for the senses as well as the mind. I absolutely loved this movie. It is one of my all-time favorites.
I beg to differ on the ‘praises’ that were given towards this movie. Right away “Paul” got on my nerves with his constant talk about Darwin and evolution of species (while Yes I do realize that was to be mentioned give the title but it was taken to the extreme) While there were some notable scenes I feel that this movie was too ‘all over’ Talk of Banoboes left me saying “Huh” I found myself left with many unanswered questions at the end of the movie, and rather annoyed that certain issues weren’t addressed that were made out to be a significant part of the plot. I would not recommend this film. If you want to see Amanda Peet ‘shine’ stick with A Lot Like Love…now there’s a movie to be seen!
