Storyline

In Ohio, Priscilla Chase is the VP of a company that works bringing new business to Cleveland. She has been married for more than ten years with Jack Chase, the biology teacher from the local public school. Priscilla is successful in her career but is frigid and has never reached an orgasm, hurting her frustrated husband. When Priscilla decides to buy a vibrator, Jack is seduced by his teenage student Kristen Taylor and recovers his self-esteem, working out, losing weight and dressing adequately. Priscilla has new sexual experiences and becomes closer to Wayne the Pool Guy, the constructor of swimming pools in her neighborhood since she was a child. The new relationships upgrade the personal and professional lives of Priscilla and Jack. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Nice Surprise!
18 March 2006 | by cinestorySee all my reviews

I saw this film last night at the SXSW Film Fest, where the film played to a roaring, sold out crowd who laughed from the moment the movie started (and before I thought it was actually funny) to the last frame...

The offbeat comedy has both edge and levity to it, Parker Posey and Paul Rudd give their best performances to date (the film is smart enough to present both sides of the orgasm issue), and the dialogue/ delivery/ timing set the tone and kept it going throughout the movie.

Cameos from actors other than Liza Minelli keep the audience on their toes...and Parker Posey fuses her usual angst with a sweetness that we've never seen...

The film makes Cleveland look great and offers a dynamic and observant debut for Billy Kent. Funny, smart, refreshing film! I'll see it when it's released theatrically!
