    Synopsis


    Sex and Death 101
    Upon receiving an e-mail containing the names of every woman he has ever slept with and every women he will ever sleep with, a man set to be married in just one week eschews his wedding plans in favor of seeking out the truth behind the perplexing message in a black comedy written and directed by Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters. Roderick Blank (Simon Baker) was prepared for a future of predictable, domesticated bliss -- but fate has a funny way of shaking things up when we least expect it. When a mysterious message appears in his inbox and he sets out to discover the origins of the strange communication, he soon finds himself falling for a dangerous black widow named Death Nell (Winona Ryder), who isn't on the list. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The basic plot can be revealed. A groom, right before his wedding receives a list of 101 women he will be involved with in his life. Only he's not to 101 yet. At the same time there is a serial coma-er putting men into comas. Simon Baker plays the first. Winona Ryder plays the second. The humor here is serious. This isn't the slapstick of American Pie or Dumb and Dumber. This is humor that hits you in the back of the head ten minutes later. It's funny. But it still hits you in the back of the head ten minutes later. If you knew who you were going to be involved with successfully how would that change the way you lived your life? At the same time Waters serves up about every fantasy you can imagine. Only not in the juvenile manner our current culture has come to consume. Baker is wonderful. Ryder is OK. (She doesn't really have a lot to do except provide punch lines.) There's even poetry written on walls. Of course this wouldn't do big box office. But if it doesn't become another cult classic it will only be because it isn't seen enough due to poor marketing.

      Very good movie. I throroughly enjoyed it. Main character acted as one would expect with the sudden appearance of a list of everyone he would ever sleep with. The ending made it a pretty good movie. Everyone loves a happy ending. The happy ending seems a little far fetched tho. The hunt wouldnt just go away when everyone woke up.
