Far from the teen movies of yesteryear, but has it's fair share of youngster fun
As insightful as teen romances come, 100 Girls is an examination of one guy's search for the perfect girl.
One hell of an oddity
Actually not terrible by the end. This early aughts horndog comedy starts with some terrible and trite stereotypes about college guys, college girls, and what they'd do for bad college sex - all layered with an incessantly monologuing leading doofus.
Matthew, the doofus character starts arcing half an hour in though, and his hopelessly romantic quest for finding The One becomes more complex and endearing as he starts earnestly exploring the tensions between the sexes instead of just subscribing to his dude-brah roommate's defense mechanism of misogyny or letting his misguided Women's Studies professor blame men for all manners of perceived patriarchal sins.
The movie still pats its male writer and character on the back for playing the hero against sexual assault and for being the first to speak of gender equality and understanding (in fair albeit elementary terms). Even though Matthew's climactic speech is very sweet (filled with both stereotypical yet comforting gender cues and genuine promises about commitment and respect), traditional gender roles are still in place: the dude makes a sweeping declaration of love, and the gaggle of girls swoons.
The supporting cast of ladies starts off without personality or each with only one, odd defining quirk, but the characters played by Larisa Oleynik, Katherine Heigl, Jaime Pressly, Marissa Ribisi, and a [Ben Wa] ballsy and sensual Emmanuelle Chriqui (whom I thought was a young contemporary of Nina Dobrev's but actually isn't), eventually round out the varying levels of estrogen.
Most people have seen this because of Katherine Heigl, but believe you me, it's nothing to wave your flag at.
Flat, one dimensional characters throughout. This includes the main character who just gets on your nerves talking and talking endlessly about why men and women are different, and then later about how they belong together. The writer-director seems to think all this talk passes for wisdom about the millennial old arguments between the sexes. Throwing nearly every stereotypical chauvinistic assumption from both sides of the gender divide into the script does not lead to any answers. There are plot holes and ridiculous situations to fill the rest of the run time in this supposed sex farce.
A lot better than I was expecting. After watching a couple of awful movies I got this just to see Jaime Pressly from 'my name is earl' but clearly got sucked into the Narators and main character objective critisism and self loathing of the rules between men and women.
