The genre is that of a teen sex comedy, and the film's subject matter makes the perfect fodder for a host of sex and gender-related jokes. However, this indie film goes beyond the formulaic pablum Hollywood seems to crank out too much of these days. On another level, it does have more to say about gender roles, relationships and acceptance of oneself.
Writer/director Martin Curland's debut production features a clever script. There are excellent performances from the entire cast, particularly Taylor Handley (Luke) and Rebecca Mozo (Michelle). Dustin Seavey and Alison Folland are definite standouts in their roles as Luke's friends Keenan and Janine, and Marieh Delfino also deserves mention as the emotionally-confused "Luca."
The special effects and makeup were pretty decent given the movie's presumably limited budget. On another note, while the filmmakers could have shot this script virtually anywhere, they made quite good use of locations in and around Eugene, Oregon.
The DVD extras don't add a lot to the film. However, there is a pretty humorous interview with actress Kelly LeBrock (The Woman in Red) where she talks of zerophilia as though it were a real disease.
much interested in him as well. But when starts to get sexually
aroused by her, he starts to turn into a woman. (Say, what?)
You see, Luke is a victim of "Zerophilia" (2005), a genetic
abnormality that causes one to switch genders when they have an
orgasm. Of course, they can turn back just by having another orgasm,
but that may not be so easy, since a male "zero" who just changed
into a woman may not be attuned to how to sexually excite his female
self to orgasm. Then there is the matter of having to maintain two
complete wardrobes ...
Firmly tongue in cheek, this hillariously offbeat indie comedy from
writer-director Martin Curland features witty dialogue delivered by
a talented, likeable young cast, headed by Taylor Handley (whom some
may remember as Oliver on "The O.C.") as Luke. Not a gay film, but
of special interest to anyone who likes to explore the mystery of
traditional gender roles and attitudes. DVD includes a phony plug
for a supposed "support group" for zerophiliacs, deleted scenes and
a short "making of" feature. I give it four stars out of five.
Although phrased as a teen flick and filled with traditional problems around dating and more modern questions of orientation, this has a bit more depth than you might expect. It's not for the body-shy, but overt sexuality is mostly a matter hints, shadows, and what's just off-screen. Despite a few predictable elements, I recommend this one highly.
