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 really liked this film. As a man, I am sure that this was driven by the fact that Julie Davis is a hottie who wore very sexy clothing. I also enjoyed the several hot sex scenes. (Face it. Isn't this one reason that Sex and The City is so popular.)
This really was the kind of movie that a man a woman watch right before they have sex. This isn't a bad thing.
This movie was supposed to be wierd in the first place. The confessions to a horny priest, the shooting, the voices yammering in her head where designed to be quirky. Rather than analyse the heck out of the movie, I just let it be what it was.
I have heard that this is an ultra low budget film. Yet, the quality of the shooting seems very good.
I also liked the fact that Julie David didn't go for some super smooth skinned beauty to play the part. She looked like a real woman and therefore, was irresistable.
Romantic comedies of today tend to be mindless and cute and sappy anyways. So the ending of the film was status quo.
I recommend it.
