More Mock than Doc-umenatary.
30 November 2009 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Like everyone else who sees this flick I was instantly drawn to the title. Sexual failures you say? Then count me in! Failing in a sexual venture is without a doubt the non-physical shot to the crotch. You may or may not see it coming, but when it hits it hurts bad. So, obviously this flick should be a huge success. Really how could a film about someone's sexual failures be...a failure? Well, you'd be surprised.

Chris's History of Sexual Failure was an alright flick, but no way the spectacle you're hoping to see. We follow Chris as he calls and interviews past girlfriends. We see him deal with erectile dysfunction. We see him cry, talk with his Mama, get drunk, and hell, we even see his John Thomas. But more importantly we get to know Chris, but I can't say for sure, it's the 'real' Chris Waitt, we're seeing. The movie overall has a very sneaky mockumentary feel to it, that I don't think many people are picking up on.

For a flick like this to flourish, you need a lot of entertaining things going on, and you also need to relate to and like (or really dislike) the person that everything is centered around. And with Chris, we get a monotone, narcissistic personality that seems to make a total of five facial expressions. He really reminded me of a that 'artsy' kid in high school who came off like he tried too hard. And that also makes me think that a lot of the 'real' moments with Chris solo was just him acting. He always felt like he was trying to keep a straight face. The more I think about it, the more I remember how staged some things felt. But whatever with that, Chris, just simply wasn't the right person for this movie. Carrot Top would've been a much better fit.

Besides my drawbacks with Chris, the film did deliver a moderately entertaining 90 minutes. Chris is a solid film-maker, and it's obvious he tried hard to deliver something appealing. Sh!t, he was whipped butt-nekkid by a dominatrix. Very funny scene by the way. So overall this quirky albeit not totally likable film is falling into a love/hate relationship it seems, but it's no way as near as bad as some people are making it out to be.
