Just a Little Harmless Sex is a 1999 romantic comedy film which revolves around the offer of oral sex by a stranded motorist (and prostitute) to a monogamous man who stops to help her. Arrested by a passing police officer, the unlikely good Samaritan must telephone his wife to bail him out in the middle of the night. A few days later, she throws him out of the house and goes out with her friends to enjoy a sexy night on the town. The denouement takes place when all the parties meet at a local nightclub for explanations and apologies. The film was directed by Rick Rosenthal, and stars Alison Eastwood, Rachel Hunter, and Lauren Hutton.

The film received generally poor reviews from critics, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 20% derived from five professional reviews.[1] Writing for The New York Times, Lawrence Van Gelder compared the film to a TV sitcom, and said the movie was "well cast, well acted and thoroughly inconsequential".[2] Writing for Variety, Lael Loewenstein said "what saves [the film] from being utterly predictable is its zesty dialogue".[3]
