      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Zerophilia has some intriguing ideas, but they're imparted with a frustrating lack of wit, daring, or valuable insight.

      Peter Debruge Variety Amid deliberately campy situations and sophomoric jokes, Zerophilia offers a disarmingly sweet lesson about learning to identify with the opposite gender. Nov 6, 2006 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The script's lazy convenience is embodied by a beautiful neuromorphologist (Gina Bellman) who arrives on the scene to explain everything that's going on. Nov 1, 2006 Full Review Bill Stamets Chicago Sun-Times Boasts a fertile premise but a sterile outcome. Rated: 2/4 Oct 27, 2006 Full Review Kam Williams Insight News As adroitly executed a directorial debut as you could ever hope to find, this ingenious, sci-fi comedy revolves around a mythological malady which causes carriers to change gender whenever they make love. Rated: 4/4 Jun 1, 2007 Full Review Ken Fox TV Guide Anyone who understands the meaning of the title or catches all the frog references scattered through writer-director Martin Curland's feature debut will have a head start understanding this confused and confusing comedy. Rated: 2/4 Nov 1, 2006 Full Review Matt Pais Metromix.com Even if you'd enjoy spending a day as the opposite sex, you're better off abstaining from Zerophilia and daydreaming about what you'd do with your time.

      Audience Member I think I see the points the film tries to address; but it just fails to execute the complicated ideas in good balance. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member made by high school kids. has to be. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Not half bad......the concept was original and quite interesting but the execution needed work, and the acting could have done with some improvement as well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Sex definitely changes you! So I FINALLY got to see Zerophilia (after having ordered it from Amazon), and I tell you it was a gem! For those who haven't yet seen it, then do so ASAP - for those who hv, you know what I'm talking about. It was cute and funny. Okay not over the top like some Hollywood productions, but it had that uniqueness of an "Indy" (independent film) feel to it. I found myself chuckling and L-ing O L at some parts, and feeling the main character's (Luke's) frustration on the whole gender switching ordeal. And of course, I found myself asking the question(s), what would it be like to gender switch on a whim? (although in the film there was more "manipulation" required ;) than just a whim). And then, what gender would I ultimately choose to be? And of course, Kyle Schmid (as Max) and the great "reveal" in the shower scene! <-- That really got me! I literally said out loud (but to myself): "Wow, I didn't see that coming!" And then things just fell into place. I'm so glad I discovered this film (and of course if not having become a fan of Kyle since seeing him in "Blood Ties", I may have NEVER known about it.) Zerophilia is a definite must see!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Una historia curiosa y cuando digo curiosa, me refiero a diferente e incluso extraña. Es una pelìcula ligera, que cumple con el objetivo de entretener pero nada màs. 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member i'm really surprised that it had low ratings. this is a good movie! very weird & quirky.
