Athena Cockburn suffers from heavy migraines and lost her vim and vigor. Her boyfriend, Jacob York, has enough of the stagnating sex life with her and comes up with the brilliant idea to trick her into taking a fake pill to treat her migraines. The caveat of this placebo pill however is the extreme side effect: an exploding libido! His plan works out but the initial fun turns quickly into frustration when he can't keep up with her anymore.
I really like this movie a lot. It is a fresh approach for a romantic-comedy-drama. The raunchiness was well placed and not over the top, just right, not too much but satisfyingly frequent and did not distract from the actual story. Speaking of the story, I found it well written, well paced and as mentioned quite a refreshing approach compared to most big-bucks-budgeted movies out there. The actors played well I thought and portrayed believable characters that I could relate to. Highlight of the cast would of course be Dina Smirnoff who shows vast talent for all the different stages her character has to go through. Bravo to Mr. Mannyx Guilen (Writer, Director) for coming up with this idea, fresh approach with a well written script and directorial expertise. More of these please!
