Editorial Reviews

Sex Machine tells of the affable but simple Hiroshi, who during one sweltering summer in a small, parochial town, moves in with his girlfriend, Haruka.
Their lovemaking is as athletic as it is bizarre but a dark storm comes looming when Haruka's ex boyfriend comes knocking at the door…

From cult Japanese director Yuji Tajiri comes this innovative and original hybrid of erotica, slapstick comedy and surrealism.

Format: DVD
Crickets is a theme here in the way that wine acts in "Sideways." I had seen the cricket in "The Last Emperor," but I wonder if the animal symbolizes something in the East. If so, they didn't explain it here.
The film is raunchy, but that has more to do with positions than with naughty bits. Many people say comedy is culture-specific. Remember that Jackie Chan admitted he had no idea why American audiences like the "Rush Hour" franchise. However, I understood most of the humor here. By the end of the film, I didn't understand one aspect of the plot and the way it was filmed was poorly done. There is some girl-girl action near the end that many viewers will like, but if you think hard, it has nothing to do with the storyline. It's purely there for eye candy.
This did have some jokes that American audiences would have seen in "There's Something About Mary" and Jenny McCarthy's film. Still, I was entertained enough by this. Timewise, this film was much shorter than your average American film, so even if you despise it, it doesn't last long.
Most sex comedies are not Oscar-worthy, so if you go in knowing this is not "On Golden Pond" or whatever, then you may have a decent time with the piece.
