Movie Info

One man's unguarded honesty threatens to destroy the longtime friendship between an aspiring screenwriter and a successful magazine editor in writer/director Russell Brown's blistering comedy about the high price of being truthful. Sam has written a screenplay. He believes the film he has dreamt up could be his ticket to the big time, but before anything else, he wants to get some feedback from his old friend David. David is a magazine editor who's currently at the top of his game. He doesn't think too much of Sam's screenplay, and his admission of this fact opens up a critical rift between the two longtime writers. As the tension begins spreading to other areas of both men's lives, they suddenly find themselves forced to confront their motivations for becoming writers in the first place.

Critic Reviews for The Blue Tooth Virgin

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

Sure, The Bluetooth Virgin may not find love right around the corner, but it's a film I'll have no problem recommending 20 years from now. That's got to count for something.

Brown's film consists of a series of long, talky, humorless takes, during which the old argument about art versus commerce comes to the fore.

Simultaneously insightful and idiotic, the minimalist pic features a succession of experts providing their two cents on Why We Write, the pitfalls of friendship and the need for outside validation.

It's not too much to hazard that Billy Wilder would have enjoyed The Blue Tooth Virgin.

This is self-vindicating L.A. narcissism that tries even less hard than usual.

Top Critic

Neither blue teeth nor virgins make appearances, but Russell Brown's torpid indie does deliver plenty of ponderous chitchat about truth, deception, criticism and artists' motivations.

Audience Reviews for The Blue Tooth Virgin

Loved this movie. Saw it as a Film Festival in Hollywood. The Plot and the characters are so interesting and it really makes you think. Russell Brown is a great writer/director and Bryce Johnson is a great actor. Very likable. See it."

*** (out of four) A movie about writing a movie. It's been done before, but this film turns out to be just what a screenwriter would like to offer. It lampoons the industry it serves while questioning the true reasons thousands flock to L.A., script in hand, to take on the motion picture world. Sam (Austin Peck) has just completed a new script that he feels is destined for greatness. He could use a break. It has been several years since his failed television show has been on the tube. He gives the script to his best friend (Bryce Johnson) to read. He does, but he hates it. He tries to give Sam the news gently, but their relationship is strained when they fight over it. The story doesn't fall into the usual traps, instead it unfolds much like a stage play with long scenes of the characters just talking. The interaction is what makes the characters interesting. The scenes evolve much the way they would in real-life.
