The Oh in Ohio Reviews
Paul Rudd is charming and vulnerable as Pricilla's husband who cannot seem to give her the big O. He too goes through a metamorphosis and finding his true self. Although he falls in love with one of his students played by Mischa Barton, he comes out of the film a more fulfilled man.
The Oh in Ohio is raw, real, and a feel good film. After viewing this film one is left with a glow and a smile on their face.
Paul Rudd plays the quick wit slacker character that we've grown
accustomed to seeing and Parker is the adorable know it all that we all
love. The film is surprisingly funny and heart warming. Danny Devito
plays an endearing lovable salesman. This film manages to take the
romantic comedy genre viewer into different, unexpected directions. I'm
a big fan of filmmakers that can take a date or couples film genre,
like a romantic comedy, and turn the genre into a film for all to enjoy. If
you're a Paul Rudd fan than this is surely a role of his that you don't
want to miss. This film is worth a watch if you like to laugh you wont
So now you might be wondering about those redeeming qualities I mentioned earlier. Paul Rudd is an excellent actor, which somehow manages to show through in this film. However, his skill is weighed down, limited, and ultimately trapped and killed by the poor writing, directing, and overall execution of this story. Danny DeVito is the only thing that manages to rise above this snooze-fest to make it somewhat enjoyable. His character is developed, complex, motivated and real in a world of fake, tired, hollow shells of people. Overall though, this film is slow, barely able to capture and hold attention, and left no impact on my view of the world. I believe that each film is worth watching once ‚" to watch this film again would be a waste of time.
