Movie Info

(Olivia is a frustrated 27-year-old Gender Studies graduate student, angry at the porn-centric culture, who believes she's an asexual. While dating and courtship rituals fascinate her in her studies, in real life she has yet to experience sex, let alone mutual attraction. Spurred by her academic advisor's suggestion she "live a little", Olivia accepts her friend Felisha's offer to try sex with her own boyfriend, Julian. And, with the help of a lesbian camerawoman and an encouraging roommate, Olivia sets out to film her first sexual encounter. But in this comedy of sexual disorientation, the results of "The Olivia Experiment" are completely unexpected.c) Indican

Critic Reviews for The Olivia Experiment

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

While its provocative themes certainly bear exploring in our sex-obsessed societal landscape, The Olivia Experiment is too superficial and cliche-ridden to make them resonate, and its attempts at humor fall thuddingly flat.

The performances are overdrawn and the writing is facile; maybe the hetero male-jock and faux-lesbian eye candy will be enough for you.

When it comes to romantic comedies, it's not often to find one that jumps out as categorically different. But "The Olivia Experiment," astutely directed by Sonja Schenk, turns the genre on its ear just enough to feel refreshingly original.
