"At first this film seemed like it wasn't going to be that great - it was coming across to me as puerile and unoriginal. However, ten minutes later I decided I was completely wrong - it's an excellent movie! All right, it's never going to be great art, but it was still very enjoyable. All three leads were brilliant, interacting really well together and making me laugh out loud lots of times, and the slightly offbeat humour was refreshingly different from a lot of chick flick movies.
I read the novel this film is based on (Virtual Sexual Reality, by Chloe Rayban) and really enjoyed it, so I was worried that the film would completely ruin it. I worried needlessly - the two are completely different, because while the book makes you think more, the film is more entertaining and has a better pace.
Overall, my only gripe with this film is the ending. I just felt really annoyed that we know Justine and Chas didn't stay together forever (oops, spoiler). All right, that would be unrealistic, but I'm a romantic - I need to feel there's some hope for me!
Overall, though, this film is really enjoyable - just right for a girls' night in, and some guys might enjoy it too. Maybe rent it rather than buy it, but definitely give it a go!"

"Virtual Sexuality tells of a teenage girl Justine who is tired of being a virgin and wants to just get the big 'it' over with. The trouble really is that no one really fits her idea of the perfect bloke. She expects far too much, and knows way too little about sex and love. Sometimes the man for us is someone right near us, a person we would never expect.While out with Chas (the nerd boy underdog) at a Virtual Reality show, she is intrigued by a make over machine. Justine being super cute and naive enters this machine and finds it rather interesting. After looking around it a bit and getting a feel for it she starts to see how it works. You can change your features , hair color and various other things. Justine messes around with this a bit and designs the perfect man in her eyes. Blonde, blue eyes , and manhood fit for John Holmes. Chaos ensues when a accident causes the machine to malfunction and the male (Jake) image Justine created is now real! It's basically a coming of age movie with a little Frankenstein mixed in. It has lots of nice little surprises in it , and those accents! It was refreshing to see a movie aimed at teenagers set somewhere else other than Middle America. This was surprisingly refreshing and a good visual treat."

"...If you read the description on the back of the box. I was looking for a stupid, pointless, and thoroughly predictable romantic comedy. What I got was a wry, funny, and unexpected movie more than willing to poke fun at itself for the silly premise. Rather than a Pygmailion-like story of a creation come to life, this movie was more about understanding both sides of the gender line. When Justine becomes Jake, her computer designed fantasy bloke, she gets (or has) to go places always barred to her before, and to puzzle out the mystery of what makes a bloke tick. Trailing along with Chas, Justine's computer-geek-next-door, Jake ventures onto the basketball court, into the locker room (yike!!!) and even onto the dance floor with Hoover (guess why she got the nickname). This movie is hilarious, and well worth watching as the clueless and shallow Justine gets a good idea of what life and love are all about, both as a guy and a girl."
I was entertained every second of the movie..............

"This is one of those sci-fi comedies that provides continuous entertainment right to the end. The sex humour was great and a good moral is taught at the end of the show. The sound track was superbly aggressive with excellent programming in the LFE area. If you're into teen comedy then this is certainly for you."
