Dawn grows up in the shadow of a nuclear power plant. In high school, while her biology class studies evolution, she realizes she may have a hidden curse, an "adaptation." She lives with her mom, step-father, and hard-edged step-brother. She likes Tobey, a guy at school, and he likes her. She takes a pledge to remain chaste until marriage, so they date in groups, watch G-rated films, and don't kiss, but the power of teen hormones is great, so temptation beckons. Dawn has an admirer in Ryan, and when when things have an unexpected twist with Tobey, she turns to Ryan for help. Will he be her mythical hero and rescue her? Or can she find her way as her own hero, turning the curse into an asset? Written by
"Teeth" was a movie that I was very hesitant about seeing because the whole premise of a toothed vagina is very unsettling, especially if you're a guy like me. Nevertheless this movie is one of those that even though you're repulsed by it's first impression, you can't help but be curious as to what the movie truly is. So with quirky feelings I sat down to watch this movie, and found it to be pretty good. I must say that "Teeth" is one of those movies where I had to stop and have a long thought about it. My final verdict a very fun, and clever movie. The acting from Jess Wexler especially is great, and even if the surrounding cast was a bit lackluster, it was still presentable. I must say some things could have been done a little better, and I was very disappointed in the surrounding story elements. Like when it wasn't dealing with the absolute main premise(when it was presented in big climax situations) the story became very plain, and even somewhat predictable. However "Teeth" entertains and gives you something new and fresh that you won't be seeing in a while. Overall even if you did or didn't like "Teeth", you have to appreciate it's strangeness, and originality. I recommend it only to those who think they're willing, and in a way have seen their fair share of horror(and comedy) to know what they're getting themselves into.
