this movie was about a sexually dysfunctional woman and her husband. Parker Posey and Paul Rudd fill the parts. They break up, start sleeping with other people, and become happier. I liked this movie for several reasons:
1. it's pretty naughty. lots of sex and female orgasm talk, a vibrator plays a big part as does a beeper, and Heather Graham has a small part as a lesbian willing to help Posey out.
2. Danny DeVito gets Parker Posey. I think that's a pretty huge victory for us non-models everywhere.
3. Did I mention Heather Graham plays a lesbian?
All the acting's also great (and Keith David has an awesome small role), and perhaps the best use of Bob Marley's "Jammin'" ever in a movie. I dunno, it may be just cuz I'm a perv for Parker Posey but I really enjoyed this movie. it felt like it flew by in five minutes.
That said, the ending felt really abrupt. There could've easily been 10-15 more minutes there, and I think it needs it. The film did really well with me up till then though... I think this might be a good girlfriend litmus test to show to women and see how uptight they are. That is, if I were the type of people to test out potential girlfriends in such a shallow way like that... but The Big Lebowski and Re-Animator work as well.
