"Story of a 29-year-old Ivy League-educated, self-help author as she grudgingly falls for a shock-jock radio host with a reputation for hitting on his bimbo guests.
interesting perspectives on sex and relationships
"Amy's Orgasm" certainly isn't the first film to consider sex and
relationships from a woman's, or from women's, perspective(s), but it does
feel unique in giving frequently visited material a fresh, sassy, and
treatment not frequently seen.
Julie Davis has crafted a script that, for the most part, is crisp and pops
with great dialogue. The narrative/plot is strained in some parts, but I'm
a sappy romantic and fell for the film overall nonetheless.
Nick Chinlund is the male lead, starring here as a sleaze-baggy radio shock
jock who also happens to be quite sexy. I recognized Chinlund from a great
spot he did on The X-Files; it was nice to see him in an entirely different
role and working the script and his scenes with Davis, the co-star *and*
writer/director, very, very well.
Caroline Aaron is terrific in her supporting role, too. She gives the kind
of scene-stealing performance that should attract attention from critics.
Overall, "Amy's Orgasm" is a well-acted romantic comedy that takes some
pretty interesting risks. As a writer and director, Davis still manages to
say something about sex and relationships and is able to do so in a manner
slightly different than what we're used to seeing from most other
