Heaven help a writer who turns a philanderer into a blank.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 17, 2008
Admittedly, it doesn't have many belly laughs, but if you're tuned into Waters' peculiar, highly intelligent comedy style it's a fascinating watch.
July 6, 2008
the monologues near the truly odd ending make you wonder whether Waters had an extreme fever when he was finishing up the script
| Original Score: 2.5/5
April 11, 2008
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.

Sex and Death falls into the category of those unfortunate films in that it's a schoolboy's wet dream slathered in smug self-back patting and wish-fantasy run amok, all told with the deftness of a piano falling out of the sky and onto our heads.

April 10, 2008
A fun, sloppy treatment of a profound premise that, as a reunion project between Waters and Ryder, feels right.
April 7, 2008
There are a lot of laughs, good performances, and points for creativity.

Now we know how the dopes in the beer commercials spend their time when they are not drinking their beer. They laugh their socks off at movies like this.

Waters is trying to have his cake and eat it out too.
April 4, 2008
One of the most pointless films ever made about sex or death.

April 4, 2008
It's all a pretentious bore that feels twice as long as it's two-hour running time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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

April 4, 2008
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.

April 4, 2008
What a sorry reunion for Ryder and writer-director Daniel Waters, who scripted her far better dark comedy Heathers back in 1989.

April 4, 2008
The movie aims to be an unbridled sex farce, but the sex is never all that hot and the jokes are rarely all that funny.

April 4, 2008
The film works hard to be a dark, grown up, romantic comedy (plenty of sex, nudity, bad language and philosophy) and yet it winds up being every bit as childish as most other pictures in the genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 4, 2008
The comedy grows more and more gratingly cynical and unpleasant.
April 4, 2008
Neither particularly dark nor even remotely funny.
April 4, 2008
Even if it badly needs editing, runs almost a half-hour too long and chickens out totally in its final scenes, it's still miles above the Hollywood comedy median.
April 4, 2008
The screenwriter Daniel Waters has some funny films to his name, but Sex and Death 101 is not one of them.
