The Opposite Sex...

THE OPPOSITE SEX & HOW TO LIVE WITH THEM (15)

D: Matthew Meshekoff
Miramax/Spelling/Outlaw (Stanley M. Brooks & Robert Newmyer)
US 1993
86 mins
 
Comedy/Romance
 
W: Noah Stern
DP: Jacek Laskus
Ed: Adam Weiss
Mus: Ira Newborn
 
Ayre Gross (David Crown), Courteney Cox (Carrie Davenport), Kevin Pollak (Eli), Julie Brown (Zoe)
 

He Said, She Said sitcom stuff following a pair of waspish Jewish men who discuss their sexual conquests at length by breaking the fourth wall (i.e. speaking direct to the audience)

There's nothing particularly memorable here, or funny, and may have worked better as a television comedy series rather than a feature film, especially when it all feels like it's trying to cash in on the success of When Harry Met Sally. High Fidelity (qv), based on the Nick Hornby novel, presents a much better, funnier story on similar themes.
