Movie Info

THE FOXY MERKINS follows Margaret, a down on her luck, asthmatic lesbian hooker-in-training, who meets Jo, a beautiful grifter from a wealthy family who is an expert on picking up women, even as she considers herself a card-carrying heterosexual. The duo hit the streets where they encounter bargain-hunting housewives and double-dealing conservative women, all the while trying to reconcile their differing feelings towards each other.

Critic Reviews for The Foxy Merkins

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

Olnek is clearly a talented writer, and it's unfortunate for a film with such a promising premise that the one-liners and situational humor don't add up to more than the sum of their parts.

Merkins gets by on its considerable wit and a few genuinely hilarious moments for the first hour, then tries to play catch-up in the final 30 minutes by attempting to capitalize on marginal subplots.

January 21, 2015 | Full Review…

While much of it is quite funny, the film ends up feeling like a good comedy sketch stretched out unnecessarily to a feature-length.

December 5, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Behind its transgressive affectations, "The Foxy Merkins" is a sweet, playful divertissement.

December 4, 2014 | Full Review…

The Foxy Merkins would have made an idiosyncratic and amusing short film; at 80 minutes, it's a one-joke comedy that quickly overstays its welcome.

December 2, 2014 | Full Review…

This spritely low-budget sex comedy is essentially a parody of Midnight Cowboy, but the humor is cleverly absurd and self-aware.
