Extraordinary behind-the-scenes access reveals a drug company's fevered race to develop the first FDA-approved Viagra for women - and offers a humorous but sobering look inside the cash-fueled pharmaceutical industry.
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
I thought this movie reminded me of a lot of young women I know who are insecure about love, men, their bodies, their minds, even though they may be bright and attractive. It is a breath of fresh air to see a young woman poke fun of the way that we tend to over analyze things such as sex, the long awaited "phone call the day after," over thinking everything, and who or what holds the right answers to all of our questions about love, life, and relationships.
I am sure if you polled intelligent, 20 something female college grads with good heads on their shoulders, they would find this movie amusing. Nice to see a movie that is not about the perfect in every-way girl finding the perfect in every-way prince charming.
