Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

A hilariously pretentious drama taking a PBS approach toward sexual mechanics: Masters and Johnson meets Masterpiece Theatre.

Bliss is really a very hopeful film, with many light, humorous moments that tug it along.

Plays as an instructional guide on making your sex life better, rather than one that has a thorough story and characters.
