This film is wacky in every sense of the word...and the main theme (as you can probably guess) is sex. Despite its absurdness, however, it is a cute story about several messed up people who manage to find what they need and want in a relationship.
James Spader gives a brilliant performance as Dr. Klink (who is not TECHNICALLY Melinda's therapist, mind you)! His comedic gestures and awkwardness are really entertaining to watch and this film is a must for Spader fans! It isn't his best or most intriguing performance, but it is enjoyable nonetheless!
The remainder of the cast is also good, even though some of the scenes seem more like Saturday Night Live skits than actual film acting. Bill Murray delivers a solid performance as Klink's attorney and Laura Flynn-Boyle is amusing as Dr. Paige.
I would highly recommend this wacky comedy to anyone who can appreciate a low-budget story about sex, repressed desires and the need to find the right partner. It isn't Academy Award material, but I love it just the same!
I ordered this little gem after watching "Secretary" and going on the prowl for something else entertaining with James Spader. This got the best reviews and the price was much better than "Storyville," so I bought it.
Having been married too many times and been in the presence of too many marriage counselors and attorneys, I was delighted with the writing and the modest sex scenes (there to serve the plot rather than to tintillate). All the characters where caricatures to make the point that, during "mating season" (roughly 14 to 55), we are all more or less at the mercy of the gods, and no amount of education can suppress the ensuing chaos.
The "attorney caricatures" were the perfect embodiment of professional vultures only too happy to amplify and exploit something that would have otherwise worked itself out. So... being unable to surpress the chaos, we have found ways to make six-figure incomes off of the sexual chaos in the lives of others.
As the Pagans recognized (along with the book of Genesis, the Laws of Manu, etc.), women are the portal of sexual chaos into the affairs of men. (No need to get huffy and shoot the messanger over this... it's just the way it is.) Men are the hapless "George Burns" of the world to the "Gracy Allens" and "Lucille Balls" everywhere among us. At the end of the day, Mother Nature will do "whatever it takes" to get the next generation, and there is little that we can do to alter that fact.Read more ›
By no means sick or voyeuristic, this film delivers hilarious and well acted comedy in the same vein as "A a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Not a musical comedy, the background score includes music from Gato Barbieri (Last Tango in Paris), Puccini and others. In review, the movie has connections to a number of other film classics that deal with our curious sexual proclivities and the connections that we make with our fellow humans. Those that panned this movie on moral and defamatory grounds are just being too one sided in their world view and probably should lighten up!!!
While I wouldn't recommend the film out right for those twelve and under, there is a lot less to censor than what is put out on prime time television each evening,yet:) the film is very very entertaining and no one dies or gets shot.Read more ›
