Format: DVD
With its provocative DVD cover and its racy title, you might think you know what to expect from the Canadian indie "An Awkward Sexual Adventure." And, in many ways, you'd be right. But using all the conventions that you would anticipate from a bawdy sex romp, the picture subverts them into a wholly unique experience. Can a movie be both in-you-face and gentle? Can it be explicit and sweet? The answer, in my estimation, is yes. "An Awkward Sexual Adventure" is surprisingly adept as a relationship drama, a journey of self-discovery, and as a blossoming romance. Through it all, though, it is also laugh out loud funny giving its audience plenty of raunchy humor and uncomfortable situations. I'll be honest. I saw the cover of the DVD (with a tantalizingly placed melon) and I instantly sized up the picture. Sure to attract a male audience looking for a crude and lewd experience, the movie offers more than its share of pleasures for the female crowd as well. Yes, this is really a date movie that everyone can enjoy (more There's Something About Mary than American Pie). The women in "An Awkward Sexual Adventure" aren't just conquests, they help to make the men better people.

Jonas Chernick (who also penned the screenplay) plays a repressed accountant who starts the picture being dumped by his long time girlfriend (Sarah Manninen). It's pretty brutal, to be honest, but she is clearly unsatisfied in a number of important ways. Chernick goes on a pre-scheduled vacation at the same time, but is still convinced he can recapture his love's attention. His best friend (Vik Sahay) promises him a liberating sexual experience, but his plans go awry when he finds himself in a more traditional relationship himself.

There are a few very funny line/scenes in this film and I did enjoy it. It is sexually explicit. If that bothers you, then this isn't your cup of tea. The story is a bit amateurish and predictable, but it's still a decent film. For a "time-killer" film, this one hit the mark for me.

I usually shy away from independent films, but I was pleasantly surprised with the level if acting, and witty humor of this film. I've recommended to several friends. One last note, is even though the storyline is somewhat outlandish at times the characters portrayed definitely were more human than you see in a lot of movies.

To my surprise this actually turned out to be a pretty good movie. It's not your typical love story, offbeat is the word no doubt. Interesting characters and a good story. I admit I was not familiar with the actors in the cast but they did an excellent job with their characters and made them believable. If you are into romantic comedies with a twist then I can highly recommend this movie, especially if your girlfriend's other option is something like "Pretty Lady!"

Was a great movie for both my wife and I. Great actors, good plot. Was able to be intelligent and sexy with a little dirty thrown in without going overboard.

At first I thought it was going to be just one of those stupid wannabe funny films. But, then I rented it! It was hilarious! I laughed all the way to the end. Just as funny as American Pie franchise. Despite what others my say, I thought it was worth the rental fee. Watch for yourself, and you'll laugh too!

This independent film (produced in Canada and marketed by Tribeca) would have an R rating if it had a rating at all. The dust jacket shows what looks (from the waist down) like perhaps a teenage girl in a cheerleader-type outfit holding a large, sliced cantaloupe and suggests this could be a very juvenile sort of sexual comedy. Watching the film, I was very pleased to find it was way better than I expected. In fact my wife also watched it and said it was one of the better films she’d seen recently too.
There is indeed plenty of reference to sex (though not more than partial-frontal nudity), but the film is more than about sex. Giving away the barest sketch of the plot, which becomes pretty obvious rather early on anyhow, it’s an unusual love-triangle story in which Jordan (performed by the script writer Jonas Chernick) is dumped by his would-be fiancée Rachel (played by Sarah Manninen) and ends up taking vacation alone to see if he can find his “sex yoda”, to teach him how to be less boring in bed. With the initial help of a longstanding male Indian-Canadian friend, he ends up accidentally meeting Julia, played by Emily Hampshire, and one rapidly sees that the two of them complement each other rather well: she is thoroughly at home with her body and all manner of things sexual but abysmal with money, while being an accountant he is thoroughly at home in the realm of budgets, taxes, credit cards and the like, but the most awkward and nerdy character with women (at least initially) that I’ve seen in a long time [at times it’s a bit reminiscent of 40 Year Old Virgin].

A dramatic peak occurs roughly halfway through the film, in which we sequentially see each of these three, looking at themselves in a mirror and pondering what it is that they truly want (or need).
