Christina Ricci plays the film's main antagonist and voice-over narrator, Dedee, a white trash, runaway teen slut from the Deep South. In this oddball black comedy, Dedee shows up unannounced and broke on her half-brother's suburban doorstep one fine day. Her half-brother, a gay, thirty-something teacher takes her in, and soon she's making a hash of his well-ordered life. It gets pretty grim, pretty quick, but that's the movie's plot.
The Opposite of Sex steers clear of most, (but certainly not all), of the clichés and stereotypes so popular in movies of this type. It has enough originality, good scripting, and acting to move itself along and deliver the goods. Lisa Kudrow is good in a role as the half-brother's stressed-out friend that seems like a warm-up for a similar role in Analyze This. I'd give The Opposite of Sex a B-.
