Strong film, but the abrupt mood changes could drop your transmission.
2 December 1999 | by jedikeithSee all my reviews

But truthfully, that's the way that life sometimes works!

Which is what I think this movie is actually about. It is a shame that Troy Beyer didn't focus more on the poignant and emotional parts of her three main characters long before the end of this movie. I honestly wasn't hoping for skin footage when I grabbed this video off the shelf. Paget Brewster as Michelle was the only reason I rented it from Blockbuster anyway--there was a recent cycle of her as "Kathy" on Friends broadcast on CBS recently. I found her presence as an actress and character intriguing, besides her large warm eyes and mammoth smile. In "Let's Talk About Sex" the gratuitous, raw sexual footage seemed overdone. But, it did serve to set the musky mood for this film's sexual side. The grainy video footage of women who were interviewed for a possible TV show called "Girl Talk" was impressive and disturbing for me, a guy, who has enough problems trusting some of you already. Their stories and opinions on sex, men, and being women did serve to add depth to the story; nevertheless, I found myself wanting to see more of the emotionally bruised and honest sides of the main characters, more of their history, as well as the sincere parts of the strangers they interviewed for "Girl Talk". To me, it was two different works melded together...the vulgar, clay side of sex along with the more ethereal feelings found within humans as sexual, emotional beings...somehow this film never seemed to find a segue from one into the other without making me lurch from the impact of the pace changes. Two sides of the same coin, I think that this is an honorable work: Like most films that have good merit, this one ends with the three friends each having their own much needed epiphany. That the characters learned something and had their ships come in is enough for me. I did take something really good from it.
