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.
