By the time Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara show up, you'll be knee-deep in your own hatred for this movie. That the pair somehow earn some laughs only makes one pissed that they weren't the stars of the film.

Audience Reviews for Speaking of Sex


A very funny comedy, I was practically on the floor laughing a few times. What could have been a total goofball of a movie, is instead very well done, certain scenes and dialogue are classy, the story is engaging and moves along quickly, and the cast is top-notch. I admit there's not a lot of substance here, but it's great for what it is. It's a shame this movie is so obscure, it's FAR better than a ton of moronic comedies that were major box office hits.

Funny funny movie. A who's who in sexual tension and frustration. Cameo appearances by Katryn Erbe (Law & Order:CI), the guy from NBC's "Park n Rec", and the guy from the movie "Office Space". I did not know that James Spader (Boston Legal) did comedy. Stars Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara. 4 stars for this one Note: Suggestive sexual scenes, no nudity, very discreet and classy


The movie did have it's funny moments, but in all respects what would you expect. The movie just couldn't seem to hold it's head above the water. Of course it could've been much worse for the film makers who had decided to work on this movie. Good but wierd.
