Dr. Emily Paige: Oh, it's a wonderful guide. Techniques, fantasy games, lubricants, all in historical context. Did you know that Edison was an avid masturbator? It's where he got his best ideas.
Dan: No, Edison stole his best ideas.
Dr. Emily Paige: Whatever. Maybe it was Einstein.

A Heart-Warming and Erotic Romp
7 May 2003 | by (Northern, N.J.) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival, and it upsets me when good movies are not distributed in wide release.

This movie is a fun and exciting experience with some outstanding performances by Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara. While it might seem like a standard childish sex comedy, the writing and acting are much more intelligent and is sex-positive and witty at the same time.

If you see this playing and want a fun time, go see it.
