Storyline

This sexy, teen-comedy is about a freshman, Matthew, at college who meets his dream girl in a dorm elevator during a blackout. He never sees her face, but instantly falls in love. In the morning, the power is restored, but the "dream girl" has vanished. All Matthew knows is that she lives in an all-girls dorm. He sets out on a semester-long journey to find his mystery girl amongst a hundred female suspects. Could it be Wendy? Dora? Arlene? Patty? Cynthia? Or the 95 other girls, any of whom could have been in that elevator with Matthew. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In the film, Rod suffers from a medical condition called hypospadia. This is a real medical condition where the urethra tract is misaligned and opens on the penis at somewhere other than the tip. It is most common in males and usually corrected within the first year of life. See more »

Goofs

When the main character has to strip because he lost the game, he lowers his boxer shorts, but when he walks away from the table a few moments later, you can see he's wearing underwear again. See more »

The boy next door, exploring... women.
5 January 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie has its obvious drawbacks. For instance, pretty much all the women/girls in the movie are very attractive. Even the ugly girls aren't really that ugly. Then we have the quasi/anti-feminism message, which will probably annoy people. And there are lots of stereotypes and clichés throughout the movie. In fact, the movie is actually _based_ on stereotypes, mainly those concerning the roles and rules of gender and courtship.

But all that is sorta the point! (Except the "all girls are pretty"-bit, which annoys me.) So, if you're not too hung up on the flaws, "100 Girls" is actually rather funny! Laughing out loud isn't hard at all. The main character, Matthew, is sorta cute, in a completely undate-able sorta way. (Nice guys do finish last. Sorry!) The girls are neurotic and predictable. But the story isn't _too_ predictable either. (After all, _you_ try making an original High School movie! Iz not that easy I tell you.)

But this banality is probably the point of the movie, and it works as a whole. Even if you don't really care whether Matthew ever finds his lost mystery-love or not, it's still entertaining to watch his quest for love, and to hear the sometimes utterly blunt facts of life and genderhood that are spelled along the way. (Yes, most young men do find it stressful to hit on girls. Really? And yes, men and women may have some difficulties communicating with each other, because they have different experiences and different goals.)

So, in summary: A round of applause for banality and simple stories, as long as they're delivered with warm humor and jokes about the human anatomy!
