My Awkward Sexual Adventure Reviews
It skirts ordinary life in the way only the self absorbed can manage and thus gets a high mark from me.
I once rented YPF...I'm not going to spell out the full title, but that's how it got by in America. It was actually a pretty great flick about relationships. So the cover and title of this movie are very suggestive, but there's not even that much nudity in the movie. Had the writers taken the film a little more seriously, it could have been quite a gem as Emily Hampshire nails her role, and Chernick was solid, but only at the very end.
Basically, his character is without a psychopath. He proposes, she breaks up because he's no good in bed. As the story plays out, a different picture is painted with her. But he goes off and meets a stripper. He, an accountant, straightens out her finances in exchange for some confidence building, ahem, personality and sexual-wise. Truly, it's not that bad.
The weakness of the movie lies in the weakness of the characters...maybe. To the viewer, the picture is crystal clear. To Chernick, it's not so much. He keeps going back to the psychopath, at the cost of his new relationship with Julia. That's as far as I'll go with the storyline. If they take that a little more seriously...flesh it out a little and make it just a bit more believable, you've got a nice drama. Instead, it's just a bit too cheeky to take seriously.
Finally, the ending is nice. His man-slut character lays out a pretty solid line and discovers something. Again, a little unbelievable what happens there but not a bad concept. Just lazily written because it's not a serious movie. And there is some catharsis with the lead characters as well. It's just really unfortunate they went with that title, that cover, and basically made the movie as light as the poster. Even then, it's not terrible.
