Nauseating ,systematic emasculation

"There are good reasons to review movies before you buy them; and this is one you do not want to buy. It sounds good on the surface..'romance'..but it is more disturbing than entertaining. If you are a male who has endured an entire generation for portraying men as useless apes, good only for slapping around - and you enjoy being constantly humiliated, you'll love this. Or if you are curious as to how the feminist movement self destructed, this would be good for a term paper on the subject. Curious how in this movie we establish that men are mere beasts, and we have no use for them...yet we need to have their sperm for a baby. The father of the child is utterly insignificant and without value or purpose other than for this. This movie portrays the ultimate debasement of men. Yet at the same time present a vicious and relentless, verbally castrating, ill tempered female lead as somehow the ultimate advancement of mankind... what's wrong with this picture?
Everyone involved with this production, including the producers and directors, has the mental age and severely handicapped intellect as one might expect to find on Nanny 911. With several years of profound loss of all material possessions, and health...there is a slender hope that we might bring these addolescents out of their disgusting self absorption."
A Witty and Intelligent Romantic Comedy

"This highly topical romantic comedy is both funny and witty. It does not pander with bathroom humor, but is sophisticated and intelligent. Traci Lords stars as a tough, no-nonsense career woman with buried feelings and longings she didn't know she had. She is ably supported by the hunky but clueless male lead, played by Paul Johansson; a wisecracking sister played by Sherilyn Fenn; and an older mentor/friend played by the ever-popular Mariette Hartley. All ages, from older teens to seniors, will not only "get it," but will most certainly enjoy it."
