A sheep in wolf's clothing!
Christina Ricci is beautiful, talented and charismatic, but even she can't salvage this overrated movie, which dresses itself as something wicked and daring, but turns out to be your typical Hollywood paean to romance and family values. Ricci (who impressed me in 'The Ice Storm' and 'Buffalo 66') spits out the politically incorrect put downs and gay-baiting one liners with great panache, but the problem is that they really aren't all that witty in the first place. Check out writer/director Don Roos' C.V. and it screams "hack". Look past the surface of this movie and it's obvious that his talent is paper thin. Ricci is supported by an odd cast of TV faces, Hal Hartley regular Martin Donovan (who is usually superb but has too much of an under written role here to make any impression), and a truly awful and unconvincing performance by Lyle Lovett. (Don't give up the day job, Lyle!) 'The Opposite Of Sex' is ultimately a shallow and forgettable experience. Don't bother unless you are an obsessive Ricci fan.
