"This movie was very entertaining. A writer inplants the obsessions of infidelity to three seemingly happy couples. It leads onto a road of self havock. A great representation of the taboo thirsts in all of us. Some characters you love, some you hate, some you sympathize with others just disgust you. Even big man Ron Jeremy make a funny cameo while at the "office", if you know what I mean. Only disappointments were the full screen format and the mono sound. Overall a good flick."
Woody would like it.

"While I was watching this film I couldn't help but think of Woody Allen films. This movie is very much like some of his films. Something about sex focuses on the sex lives of three married couples and there various stages and insecurities about fadelity. The film opens at a dinner party where a guest, Art Witz(Jason Alexzander), proposes to the three seemingly happy couples that monogomy is not natural. The rest of the film covers the journey these people take to answer that question. I found this film quite entertaining. The cast was very good. Each character had there own sort of neurotic qualities that made them unique. To be more specific one character uses the same line over and over to pick up women, another has a fetish for porn(which leads to a hilarious cameo from Ron Jeremy), another a liking for "special" massages, and one character is obsessed with larger women. All this makes for some really funny stuff. I thought the film was well edited. It seemed to know just when to cut, never too much, which is a credit to the director Adam Rifkin. I recommend this film. It delivers exactly what it promises with it's title. I said earlier it reminded me of a Woody Allen film, well yes, but without New York, and with graphic sex scenes(Allen never has these). If you like this film I also suggest Friends and Lovers which is very similar in context to this film. If you like comedies about sex you will like Something About Sex."
Yes,the scene with Hudson Leick is worth buying this video!!

"Let me make this perfectly clear,the only reason why I even heard of this movie,rented this movie and ultimatly bought this movie was because of the infamous sex scene with Hudson Leick AKA
Callisto to Xena fans.And yes,the scene is really,really good and yes,Hudson Leick is really,really sexy!If you're an admirer of Hudson Leick/Callisto(which 9 out of 10 you are if you're checking out this review)then buy this video as it is extremely rare.She is not credited on the box cover nor in the opening credits,but you will find her name at the end.If you can buy this movie for a good price,then do so!"

"You will recognize almost everyone in this film and I don't think it ever even made the big screen. This is one of those pictures that became a cult classic on cable and video. If you're not yet a Hudson Leick fan-and if you're not, we'll send a few of the boys around to speak wit youz-buy this now because when it finally hits network TV, her entire role will be in the program director's VCR, not on your screen. I have no idea why they changed the name from Denial to Something About Sex but I can only imagine that it was...and still is...too hot to handle. I've never seen such a classy combination of sex and humor and, as a licensed private detective, I am compelled by law to give it 5 Stars."

"To put it simply, this movie is worth watching for the undeniable fact that it is fundamentally based in life. Talk about a funny, truthful look at sex, lust, love, relationships, friends, and society. Also the opening dialogue by Jason Alexander, when he talks about monogamy is priceless."
