The Oh in Ohio Reviews
This film is a morass of missed opportunities. An exploration of how the sexual repression of Cleveland specifically, which is not known for being the Mecca of red hot lovers, and the midwest in general contributed to this woman's issues would have made a compelling plotline, but this theme remains unresolved. Perhaps a brief understanding of how what our society deems as unattractive could actually fit the bill would have made an interesting theme. But no. How about the film portray the importance of a healthy sexual relationship in a marriage? Nah - let's just have Jack move to the garage.
This film could have been so much more, but Cleveland, as it is portrayed here, is the same as any other American city, there are no comments or reflections about how Danny DeVito succeeds where the dashing Paul Rudd fails, and ... well, Jack just moves into the garage, rather spontaneously and without much attention paid to the failure of the film's principal marriage.
Also, I thought that the Jack plot never resolved. Where does he go from here? Is there a bit of moralizing in his end? Though he engages in an inappropriate relationship, the film doesn't portray Kirstin as a child but as an experienced woman. I thought he deserved better.
Overall, if you want to see a movie that could have been so much more, then The Oh in Ohio is the perfect pick.
Truly, I didn?t. The movie had a interesting storyline about a woman who has never had an orgasm in her life and when she finally does, she becomes obsessed with the object of your orgasm (A vibrator? then Danny Devito). The laughs were plentiful, great script and well acted. I was surprised cause I was expecting a dud of a movie, but inside came out entertained for about 90mins or so. It was a very short movie (or felt like it).
I definitely recommend it for some lighthearted fun.
