February 12, 2003
a nightmare date with a half-formed wit done a great disservice by a lack of critical distance and a sad trust in liberal arts college bumper sticker platitudes.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
January 31, 2003
Davis' candid, archly funny and deeply authentic take on intimate relationships comes to fruition in her sophomore effort.
January 31, 2003
Despite its many infuriating flaws -- not the least of which is Amy's self-absorbed personality -- Amy's O's honesty will win you over.
January 2, 2003
When compared to the usual, more somber festival entries, Davis' highly personal brand of romantic comedy is a tart, smart breath of fresh air that stands out from the pack even if the picture itself is somewhat problematic.
December 8, 2002
One of the most plain, unimaginative romantic comedies I've ever seen.

Julie Davis is the Kathie Lee Gifford of film directors, sadly proving once again ego doesn't always go hand in hand with talent.

Davis is funny, charming and quirky in her feature film acting debut as Amy.
October 4, 2002
The whole mess boils down to a transparently hypocritical work that feels as though it's trying to set the women's liberation movement back 20 years.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 2, 2002
Frankly, it's kind of insulting, both to men and women. And it's not that funny -- which is just generally insulting.

September 27, 2002
About Amy's cuteness, Amy's career success (she's a best-selling writer of self-help books who can't help herself), and Amy's neuroses when it comes to men.

August 30, 2002
A movie that harps on media-constructed 'issues' like whether compromise is the death of self... this Orgasm [won't be an] exceedingly memorable one for most people.

August 30, 2002
Davis the performer is plenty fetching enough, but she needs to shake up the mix, and work in something that doesn't feel like a half-baked stand-up routine.

August 29, 2002
Like Kissing Jessica Stein, Amy's Orgasm has a key strength in its willingness to explore its principal characters with honesty, insight and humor.

Davis ... is so enamored of her own creation that she can't see how insufferable the character is.
August 29, 2002
It's supposed to be post-feminist breezy but ends up as tedious as the chatter of parrots raised on Oprah.
August 23, 2002
Feels familiar and tired.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 23, 2002
Davis ... gets vivid performances from her cast and pulls off some deft Ally McBeal-style fantasy sequences.

August 22, 2002
A depressingly retrograde, 'post-feminist' romantic comedy that takes an astonishingly condescending attitude toward women.

[Davis] has a bright, chipper style that keeps things moving, while never quite managing to connect her wish-fulfilling characters to the human race.
