If At First... (1998)

If At First... (A VERY Safe Sex Comedy)  (1998)
 
'If At First...' is a riotous comedy dealing in the farcical exploits of a nerdy young man who is on a night out at a club with his friends.
 
As the dancing begins our nerdy hero is approached by a beautiful woman who wants to have sex with him; much to the amazement of his friends.
 
The nerd buys a packet of three condoms and so begins his catalogue of disasters.  As he works his way through each condom in the packet he is taken from one hishap to another.
 
He encounters a wierd man in the toilet, a sex mad homeless man (with a rather large condom of his own), before eventually ending up at her parents house...  You know where it's going...!
 
Robert A. Welsh, who stars as the nerd, also wrote and co-produced this little gem of a film.
