Although a bit silly and quirky, I enjoyed this movie. I was doing a rundown of movies with James Spader in them, and this one was next on my list. There are some great actors in this movie, and they make the best of a mediocre script. Spader is brilliant, as usual, as are O'Hara and Murray. Sexually charged and openly salacious, the movie is a romp of fun, making light of sexual therapists and their tactics. It is comical and crude; just enough to make it appropriate only for mature audiences. Enjoy, after the kids are in bed.
Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara are funny. The rest is abysmal.
I didn't like this movie because the movie was weird and not really funny or interesting.
One line review: Surprisingly mediocre.
It's really surprising how average this film is considering the cast. James Spader, Jay Mohr, Lara Flynn Boyle, Catherine O'Hara and Bill Murray have all done much better. While they do the best that they can, the script and the directing is where it fails. I'm really surprised that the cast signed on for something like this. It is defintely watchable, but you can't help but be underwhelmed by how it missed the mark with the potential it had. It could have been a lot funnier.

Loca y Divertida Comedia por las confuciones e intereses de 3eras personas, cumplio su funcion Entretener
It's actually excellent and very very funny.
Lara Flynn Boyle looked hot, otherwise not much special here.
I really can't stand Jay Mohr as far as I can throw him but everyone else in this was spot on. This wasn't that funny but was alright for a indie direct to video comedy. James Spader did a great scummy perverted therapist, while Lara Flynn Boyle always knows how to play the ultimate bitch in anything she stars in. Megan Mullally does a very good bitch role herself and wanted more of her in this. Kathleen Robertson is one of those actresses you never remember by name but always remember her graceful beauty that matches her soft spoken voice. I can never remember what shes been in exactly but she always shines with what shes given. The rest of the cast did a well enough job but kinda felt like the writing was very sub par to what these actors are used to. It really pains me to watch a movie with brilliant actors and you know if the story and dialog was tweaked a bit, the movie would be perfect. This however is far from perfect but its worth a friday night watch and would probably make a good date movie when you can't decide on what what to watch.
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.
No ratings, I've never heard about it before and it's a shame. This movie made my day. Hilarious.
