Critics Consensus

Sex and Death 101 aspires to be a clever sex comedy, but has little life behind the sex or the death.

  • As a writer, Waters is best-known for creating Ryder's sharp black comedy, Heathers, and Bruce Willis' self-indulgent bomb, Hudson Hawk. As a director, he tends to waste actors, and he fails to establish a consistent comic tone.

    April 11, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • There are a lot of laughs, good performances, and points for creativity.

  • Why not simply admit this is cheeseball porn, assembled with a slightly higher brand of cheese and nuts?

  • This film is headed quickly for DVD. In the video store, though, it isn't funny enough to be shelved in the comedy section nor dirty enough to be filed with the smut.

  • What a sorry reunion for Ryder and writer-director Daniel Waters, who scripted her far better dark comedy Heathers back in 1989.

Audience Reviews for Sex and Death 101

  • Apr 18, 2012
    From Daniel Waters, the writer of the cult classic Heathers, comes the new satirical comedy Sex and Death 101. The film follows newly engaged Roderick Blank, who must struggle with fate when a mysterious source sends him a list containing the names of all the women that he will sleep with throughout his life. Simon Baker and Winona Ryder lead the cast, and both give strong performances. The film has a lot of fun with sexual cliches and stereotypes as Blank goes through the list. It also presents the struggle between free will and fate in an interesting and satirical way. While some of the satire works, a lot of it is a few degrees off and has some problems with presentation. Sex and Death 101 has some fun and is fairly entertaining, but has its share of troubles as well.

    I enjoyed Sex and Death 101 much more then I thought I would, not only because of Simon Baker but because I found the film itself was very enjoyable to watch and had a few good belly laughs to boot (one in particular had me laughing throughout most of the rest of the film). Don't watch Sex and Death 101 If you are looking for an average popcorn munching comedy film watch it if you are looking for something a bit different and perhaps odd yet still enjoyable. I was lucky enough to pick it up due to my undying love of Simon Baker and I'm happy I did.
