The Oh in Ohio Reviews

October 7, 2006
Comedies for grown-ups, period, are now in such short supply that a good-natured little picture like The Oh in Ohio feels like an anomaly.
September 8, 2006
A vibrator may put the buzz back in the solo sex life, but it tends to suck the life out of any movie not rated with three Xs.

Posey's such a delight it's easy to appreciate her even in a film as fruitless as The Oh in Ohio.

I felt some of its heroine's pain. She's spent her life waiting for an orgasm. I spent the movie waiting for a plot.

The script, which was co-written by director Billy Kent, has the forced 'raciness' of a mid-'70s dinner-theater sex comedy.

The Oh in Ohio would make a second-rate lover: You'll lose interest a while before it reaches its climax.

This is the slightest and slimmest of sex comedies.

At the end of the day, Kent and screenwriter Adam Wierzbianski have given us a mildly amusing premise, but fail to turn it into a story that takes us anywhere pleasurable.

Sex comedies often glean laughs out of sexual humiliation, but when the laughs don't come -- and The Oh In Ohio is devoid of even the mildest chuckles -- all that's left is the humiliation.

A C- sex comedy with a near A-list cast -- at least in terms of talent -- The Oh in Ohio is one of those movies that promises much but doesn't deliver.

Unfortunately, writer Adam Wierzbianski, who seems more steeped in the rhythm method of sitcom than the less predictable peaks of screwball, allows the batteries to run down prematurely.

It's a thrill to watch Posey incorporate, at last, some true emotion into her exuberant screwball wit.

August 3, 2006
The Oh in Ohio deserves a dubious distinction award: for turning a woman's quest to achieve her first orgasm into a lackluster comedy.
July 14, 2006
Ohio, and Cleveland in particular, deserve much better than this.

Despite this seemingly surefire premise and cast of veteran comedians - there's even a cameo by Liza Minnelli as a masturbation coach -- The OH in Ohio just lies there, without a single laugh.

Sometimes a flop is simply a case of a movie taking a wrong step. In the case of The OH in Ohio, it's a case of never taking a right one.

Billy Kent's comedy makes much of masturbation and sexual aids, and, in that spirit, takes great pleasure from its broad, flat self.

Eventually, the oh's becomes 'zzzzzz's.'

July 13, 2006
It's as if the filmmakers lost their nerve when it came time to write the kind of intimate, revealing conversation that can make a sex toy unnecessary.
July 12, 2006
This is a mindless comedy about sex that is never remotely funny, with a cast that is never remotely sexy, and which, in one case, is downright revolting.
July 12, 2006
A silly, amusing trifle.

A farce executed by characters who feel more like pawns than fully realized people.
March 29, 2006
Blurs the line between risque and raunchy, often to hilarious effect.
March 16, 2006
The movie provides a good time but isn't wholly satisfying in the end.
