I Loved This Delightful Movie

In Ohio, Priscilla Chase (Parker Posey) is the VP of a company that works bringing new business to Cleveland. She has been married for more than ten years with Jack Chase (Paul Rudd), the biology teacher from the local public school. Priscilla is successful in her career but is frigid and has never reached an orgasm, hurting her frustrated husband. When Priscilla decides to buy a vibrator, Jack is seduced by his teenage student Kristen Taylor (Mischa Barton) and recovers his self-esteem, working out, losing weight and dressing adequately. Priscilla has new sexual experiences and becomes closer to Wayne the Pool Guy (Danny DeVito), the constructor of swimming pools in her neighborhood since she was a child. The new relationships upgrade the personal and professional lives of Priscilla and Jack.

I loved the delightful and unknown "The Oh in Ohio" for many reasons. The story and screenplay touches in the problem of women that are orgasmic dysfunctional in a respectful way, in spite of being a comedy. Parker Posey is perfect and I believe this is one of her best recent roles and performances recalling her beginning of career. The underrated Paul Rudd is also great, showing magnificent chemistry with Parker Posey and with the gorgeous and sexy Mischa Barton. Danny DeVitto is excellent as usual. The promising director Billy Kent directs this little gem with sensibility, giving right doses of comedy, drama, romance and even eroticism to the film. Summarizing, I recommend this movie for viewers that expect a refreshing romantic comedy. My vote is eight.

High libido

Imagine a married woman who hasn't had an orgasm with her own husband! No wonder the marriage is falling apart. Pity poor Priscilla Chase who hasn't known the pleasures of the bedroom in her time with husband Jack, who obviously knows how to please himself, but hasn't been able to find those enjoyable parts within the wife he has married. No wonder Priscilla is a basket case!!

Well, relief comes in the shape of vibrator that brings, not only pleasure, but the sensations that have been denied to Priscilla. Since her discovery, she can't do without her "toy" whenever she can. Watch how relaxed and nice she becomes right after she begins to explore parts she never knew existed. How about that "garment malfunction" during an ad campaign presentation where she is the victim in front of executives that have no clue of what is going on.

Billy Kent, the director of this film, goes for the sure laughs and succeeds along the way. He was lucky in employing that irrepressible Parker Posey, who steals the show with her take on Priscilla. The best thing in the movie though, is Liza Minnelli, as a sex instructor, who is seen guiding a group of women that obviously have the same problem that has brought Priscilla to seek her guidance. Danny DeVito is enormously funny as the pool builder who finds a kindred spirit in Priscilla. Paul Rudd doesn't have much to do.

This movie is great for watching with a group of friends. The fun will not stop because it will elicit a lot of funny comments from all the people present. We guarantee it.

I want you to discover... your vaginas.

This is my fourth Parker Posey film. I haven't seen any in which she won an award, but I have to say after this one she has won my heart.

It wasn't a great film, but it was funny and it was good.

After some 1400 times of having sex with her husband, she go off to find her first orgasm. She tries some Orgasm Guru (Liza Minnelli), and that doesn't work; she gets hooked on a vibrator, and has to do 12 step to get off - off the vibrator, as she had no problem getting off; and she tries a variety of men, and one woman. But nothing really works - well, the vibrator did - until she finds the right person.

I would have never guessed that Wayne the Pool Guy (Danny DeVito) would be the magic she was missing. Maybe it was his fabulous pool that did it, but I don't think so. Anyway, she found the magic.

Parker Posey has that smile and that laugh that just makes you melt. I melted, and cheered for her and for this truly witty film.
