Winner of 12 international film festival awards including “BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS”, “BEST FILM”, “BEST SCREENPLAY” and “BEST ACTRESS”

“A movie that has an odd plot, quirky characters and a real edge, but it's not in-your-face, a re-invention of a genre or a smirky independent. It's different because it's flat-out great.”
   G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Examiner

“This is a declaration of love: The Opposite of Sex is the smartest, edgiest, most human and handsomely acted romantic comedy in elephant years.”
Richard Corliss, Time

“[Roos's] dialogue (including an on-and-off voiceover by Ricci's pregnant, runaway sociopath) has a ringing clarity, his satire is low-key but quite real, and his actors mesh so perfectly you'd swear they rehearsed for months before shooting.”
Tom Keogh, Film.com

Reviews

  1. :

    The film showcases a tour-de-force performance from Christina Ricci as the precocious and bad-mouthing 16-year-old Dede who returns to visit her gay half brother Bill, and ends up seducing his boyfriend. Ricci belies her lack of true adult roles in films to this point, and delivers a totally convincing (and hilariously funny) performance, which along with her performances in The Ice Storm and Buffalo 66, qualified her as one of the most promising American actresses at the time. In support, Lisa Kudrow gives a revelatory performance as Bill’s best friend Lucia who tries to combat Dede’s disrupting influence, and indeed Martin Donovan as Bill is also excellent in his role.
