Womanizing was the topic du jour at last night's New York premiere of "Whipped," about a savvy woman who turns the tables on three male chauvinists in Manhattan. The movie, which stars Amanda Peet, Brian Van Holt, Jonathan Abrahams, Zorie Barber and Judah Domke, was made by Peter Cohen, who told PEOPLE: "It's about three . . . scammers in New York City who are total womanizers, and they all end up meeting the same woman and falling in love with her." And? "It's about what happens when a woman comes in and destroys the friendships. She's a 'manizer.' " Jesse Bradford, who stars in this past weekend's No. 1 movie, "Bring It On," was onhand for the premiere and could relate to its twist on typical sexual roles. "I think that as many women manize men as men womanize women," he told PEOPLE. "I've been on both sides of that equation."
