Better Than Sex Reviews

October 29, 2001
Demonstrates why sex rarely makes a good spectator sport.
October 25, 2001
It's nice that Cin and Josh are free of hangups and neuroses, but too bad that their healthy, cheerful attitudes make them phenomenally boring.

November 8, 2001
Continues for 84 minutes, short for a feature but too long for a commercial. And Mr. Teplitzky lacks the big-screen savvy to fill the surplus footage.

There are indeed a few things that are better than sex. Unfortunately Better Than Sex is not one of them.
October 26, 2001
The movie's only redeeming qualities are its stars, David Wenham and Susie Porter.

At times, Better Than Sex feels like Last Tango in Paris, with all the grunting and animalistic behavior but none of the raison d'etre.
April 26, 2001
Bland, tiresome and flat

June 7, 2001
Though initially amusing, Better seems drawn out even at less than 90 minutes.
June 27, 2001
A disjointed little film, and is in fact quite boring.
October 11, 2001
A pretty minor affair, an outdated Aussie About Last Night.
October 23, 2001
Teplitzky appears to have cribbed from Cosmopolitan circa 1985.
October 25, 2001
Josh and Cin really are strangers, so their sudden entry through the gates of true love makes not a lick of sense.
October 25, 2001
When you come down to it, its hoary insights -- like 'men are slobs' and 'women can never decide what to wear on a date' -- have been the stuff of sitcoms since the seven words you couldn't say on television were taboo in movies as well.
November 10, 2001
Absurdly threadbare.....Supposed to be darling, of course, but it's mostly a stream of flat, pedestrian or nauseatingly cute talk.

Runs out of impulse and falls back on glibness.

December 11, 2006
A paper-thin script that is by turns fatuous and emotionally fraudulent.
December 21, 2001
The bulk of the film rests squarely on its leads and both Porter and Wenham are winning and appealing.
