Movie Info

Freshly dumped and deeply despondent over what seems to be an endless string of disastrous relationships, lovelorn filmmaker Chris Waitt attempts to root out the source of his romantic woes by tracking down each of his ex-girlfriends and asking them point blank about his shortcomings as a boyfriend. The answers Waitt receives are frequently as pointed as his questions, providing unguarded insight into the psyche of a self-absorbed, semi-delusional Lothario who rarely managed to arrive for a date on time much less follow through on his pillow-talk promises. Later taken to task by his own mother, the long-suffering relationship bungler eventually turns to therapy, acupuncture, and even Viagra in hopes of learning the secrets to loving like a true grown-up. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for A Complete History of My Sexual Failures

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Pace is snappy, soundtrack full of good alt-rock cuts.

February 1, 2008

A sporadically entertaining portrayal of male humiliation and self-abnegation.

March 27, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It's to Waitt's credit that there are genuine moments of poignancy in the film as well as laughs and sheer astonishment.

March 27, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5

There's an occasional brief, fierce laugh born out of the absurdity of the situations. At other points, the women provide genuine insight into relationships. Thank god for their realism and sanity. Still, this feels like a short bloated into a feature.

March 20, 2009 | Full Review…

It's not as funny as the title suggests, but there's something endearing about this rough video diary in which filmmaker Chris Waitt takes a fly-on-the-wall approach to his past failures as a boyfriend.

March 14, 2009 | Full Review…

It's very funny. It's slightly pathetic. It's comforting in a hey-nobody's-human kind of way.

Audience Reviews for A Complete History of My Sexual Failures


A funny adventure of a man trying to figure out why he sucks at relationships by going around and interviewing his ex-girlfriends. Sometimes he gets side tracked in his quest, which keeps the movie entertaining and interesting. Worth a watch. Fap Rating: 3.5/10 Overall: 7.4/10

You have to give props to a man who is willing to bear all in front of a camera. I am unsure as to whether certain parts of the film were staged or not, but for the most part it is easy to fall into this journey through a man's catacomb of relationships.

Okay, expected better, Pretty sure it is all set up and not a real documentary, which is a shame. Would have been better if it was real.
