  • A movie that has an odd plot, quirky characters and a real edge, but it's not in-your-face, a re-invention of a genre or a smirky independent. It's different because it's flat-out great. show more

  • The kind of daring feature that doesn't open every Friday at the local multiplex; its frank, sometimes politically incorrect approach towards the act and politics of sex is refreshing. show more

  • The De-Dee character subverts those expectations; she shoots the legs out from under the movie with perfectly timed zingers. show more
