      Audience Member This movie was obviously from 1999. The references is very dated, but the story between these 3 friends and their search for climax was hilarious. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Ryan Reynolds and Gaby Hoffmann were babies in this movie which makes it even worse because of how sexually oriented the movie was. Eww. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a funny movie. Not a well put together movie but got a few laughs out of me. Ryan Reynolds looked so dorky in this film. Who would have thought he'd turn into a major hunk. :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Although I watch the censored version, but I doubt this movie will be better. Bonnie Root, Gaby Hoffmann & Tricia Vessey are 3 bestie and also seniors. Bonnie have sex with a lousy guy and is purely just for sex. But she don't feel anything special during sex. After knowing what is orgasm, she knew she didn't experience it. The guy give her extasy and they get high. She feel a little bit almost there and the guy told her she totally came. Ryan Reynolds is their classmate who change his name because he want to succeed on his own merit. When Bonnie is in Gaby jacuzzi pool, she feel orgasm near the pump. Tricia couldn't get intimate with her boyfriend. Gaby seem the wild one, always screaming during sex. But her boyfriend feel their sex is empty and split. Now they are thinking perhaps they never experience orgasm as well. Tricia is chosen by a scout to be model, and got to be a cover girl. At the new year party, Ryan ask Bonnie out for a walk. They roll on the mud and she initiate kiss and he decline. Bonnie's mum Mia Farrow found condoms in her drawer andis shock. The friends put up ad on internet. Bonnie and her net pal went out. Gaby's didn't turn up. The net pal try to use role play but she didn't climax. Ryan invite Bonnie to see his band performance. She grow to like him more. Getting the university application result, Bonnie and Ryan got together and she finally enjoy the sex. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I only watched it for James Roday. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member There is no way any of those people are just high school seniors. Ryan Reynolds and James Roday were in it, and that's pretty much why I watched it. Mia Farrow was pretty funny in it too. It was predictable and that's kind of what you would expect from it. I guess it you want a laugh and you are okay with a little volgarity it's a good laugh. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      A.O. Scott New York Times Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 24, 2001 Full Review Michele Meek Ms. Magazine It's refreshing to see a film put the female orgasm front-and-center, especially in a genre where it’s usually depicted comically or absent entirely. Feb 23, 2023 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com It doesn't take a genius to figure out how this film ends--though it is a bit shocking how abrupt and, yes, unsatisfying it is. Rated: 2/4 Jan 7, 2010 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Oct 11, 2005 Full Review Hollywood.com Rated: 1/4 Feb 7, 2004 Full Review Cheryl DeWolfe Apollo Guide Rated: 76/100 Jul 24, 2001 Full Review Read all reviews
