A guy's life is turned around by an email, which includes the names of everyone he's had sex with and ever will have sex with. His situation gets worse when he encounters a femme fatale (Ryder) who targets men guilty of sex crime.
Just before he's to marry Fiona, Roderick Blank receives an anonymous e-mail with 101 names on it; Fiona's is the 29th, the first 28 are women Rod has slept with, and the 30th turns out to be the stripper at his bachelor party. The notion that he will have sex with 70 more people sends Rod into crisis mode, especially after three odd men in an aseptic office confirm that a celestial machine has made an error. They suggest destroying the list, but Rod finds that easier said than done. Working his way through it consumes him, plus he realizes that death may await him after #101. Meanwhile, a femme fatale nicknamed Death Nell is putting men into a coma. Are they fated to meet?Written by
The list of lovers also includes Selena Kyle (Catwoman's real name), Kitty Twist (Jane Fonda's role in Walk on the Wild Side (1962)), Barbarella Pygar (formed from Fonda's Barbarella (1968) character and its blind angel Pygar), Candace Christian (the full name of the title character of the sex romp Candy (1968)), Annabelle Lee (the title of an Edgar Allan Poe poem), Carlotta Valdes (a character in Vertigo (1958)), and Gillian De Raisx (a modification of the fifteenth century aristocratic French serial killer, Gilles De Rais).

I'm certain that some very interesting things will occur this evening... your penis going into her vagina will not be one of them. But have a lovely evening.

I am probably not the first to say it, but the choice of Simon Baker for this romantic comedy was brilliant. Left in the hands of someone who is more familiar in rom coms would leave his movie tasting like the typical breast and fart jokes that so many popular comedies are today.
Sure, he is shallow. After having sex with 29 women, he finds that he is to reach 101 before dies. Knowing who number 101 was caused him some concern, but fortunately he found out when he had 20 to go before her. No sex and he had 20 human shield to keep number 101 away. How is that working out?
There are some really funny moments (Patton Oswalt is a riot!), some tender moments, some interesting moments (Bambi and Thumper, Granny C), and 100 moments of romantic comedy.
Winona Ryder was amazing.
You have to see this one.
