A musical adaptation of this movie premiered in San Francisco in 2004 with music by Douglas J. Cohen and a book by Cohen and Robert Jess Roth based on Don Roos' filmscript. The original West Coast cast included Kerry Butler as Dede, David Burtka as Matt, Karen Ziemba as Lucia, and John Bolton as Bill. See more »

I just don't think it's something we should rush into.

The producers of THE OPPOSITE OF SEX have gone through great pains to advertise their film as politically incorrect. But it doesn't take very long to see right through their charade.
This is your standard politically correct Hollywood fable. While the film is narrated by Deedee, she is not the protagonist, she is in fact the foil. The true protagonist of the story is her homosexual half-brother Bill. It is him that we sympathize with, not her.
The film takes its standard politically correct potshots at gun owners, the religious right, Christians, Republicans, etc. They even dredge up that "evil" boogeywoman Anita Bryant to lob a rhetorical tomato at.
The movie is very well made, well acted, very funny, and highly entertaining. The problem is the preaching of liberal propaganda. If this does not bother you, or you are able to overlook it, you will find this movie very much worth a rent.
