Storyline

Amy is Jewish, nearing 30, single, and the successful author of "Why Love Doesn't Work," a self-help book for women who aren't in love. She's also a self-described sexorexic - she hasn't had sex with a man in four years and has never had a "mental orgasm." She gets plenty of advice - from her publicist, from her best friends (a married couple), from her parents, and from a priest to whom she goes to confession - so there's lots of conflicting emotion and analysis when she starts dating Matthew Starr, a good-looking playboy who's a popular L.A. male-chauvinist-pig radio shock jock. Each of Amy's theories and rules is put to the test - people may not change, but can love work? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

interesting perspectives on sex and relationships
16 August 2001 | by (Bronxville, NY) – See all my reviews

"Amy's Orgasm" certainly isn't the first film to consider sex and relationships from a woman's, or from women's, perspective(s), but it does feel unique in giving frequently visited material a fresh, sassy, and daring treatment not frequently seen.

Julie Davis has crafted a script that, for the most part, is crisp and pops with great dialogue. The narrative/plot is strained in some parts, but I'm a sappy romantic and fell for the film overall nonetheless.

Nick Chinlund is the male lead, starring here as a sleaze-baggy radio shock jock who also happens to be quite sexy. I recognized Chinlund from a great spot he did on The X-Files; it was nice to see him in an entirely different role and working the script and his scenes with Davis, the co-star *and* writer/director, very, very well.

Caroline Aaron is terrific in her supporting role, too. She gives the kind of scene-stealing performance that should attract attention from critics.

Overall, "Amy's Orgasm" is a well-acted romantic comedy that takes some pretty interesting risks. As a writer and director, Davis still manages to say something about sex and relationships and is able to do so in a manner slightly different than what we're used to seeing from most other films.
