Better Than Sex Reviews

December 20, 2001
With remarkable grace, [Teplitzky's] actors balance the competing demands of candor and whimsy, and the result, while not unforgettable, is charming.

Runs out of impulse and falls back on glibness.

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.
November 10, 2001
It could be funnier, sharper, more probing, but at its best it is sexy, and that's always something to celebrate.

The director and actors get away with this fluff thanks to the nimble, whimsical way it's played.
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.
October 29, 2001
Demonstrates why sex rarely makes a good spectator sport.
October 27, 2001
Funny and honest in tracing the way in which lust can trigger emotion even if it's not supposed to be part of the plan.

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.

Teplitzky appears to have cribbed from Cosmopolitan circa 1985.

A pretty minor affair, an outdated Aussie About Last Night.
