Critics Consensus

On_Line might have a more balanced perspective than most internet-fueled dramas, but that doesn't make the story or its characters interesting enough to watch.

Movie Info

Jed Weintrob directed this look at how Internet sex sites bring people together, while simultaneously keeping them apart. John Roth (Josh Hamilton) and his friend Moe Curley (Harrold Perrineau) spend a remarkable amount of time at Intercon-X, a pornographic website. All of the characters spend a great deal of time in cyberspace. Eventually, John shares a sexual act online with Jordan (Vanessa Ferlito), another regular at Intercon-X. Eventually Jordan and Moe engage in an actual affair, which finally forces all of the characters to deal with each other in the real world, and not just in cyberspace. This film was shot on digital video and was screened at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.

  • Amateurish drivel, which is headed for Skinemax in a hurry.

  • The youthful cast is lively enough to make the enterprise almost work, presenting a time capsule of cyber- communication that should be more interesting 20 years from now.

  • Weintrob's stylish visuals mimic Web technologies, which succeed in making his characters seem all the more removed from reality. Now if someone would find a way to equip theater seats with a 'delete' key, we could be rid of them completely.

  • There's something so familiar and commonplace about this story and its characters -- and maybe that has something to do with how much the Internet is a part of our everyday lives -- it's hard to get particularly thrilled.

  • It does a good job of portraying the day-to-day life of these online obsessives, but we realize eventually that they are more interesting because they are online.

  • If you like scenes of characters sticking hands down their pants, this is the film for you.
