Movie Summary

Director:
Daniel Waters
Released:
2007
Rating:
R

Sex and Death 101 is a 2007 black comedy from acclaimed writer Daniel Waters (Heathers, Batman Returns). The main character is Roderick Blank (Simon Baker), a successful metro sexual pretty boy who is getting married in a little over a week. He, fortunately or unfortunately, receives an email from someone who tells him all the people he'll ever have sex with in his life... All 101 of them. The only problem is that he's had sex with only 29 people and if he's getting married, how is he supposed to have sex with the other 72? The deft script also stirs up memories of droll golden era comedies that managed to bring in a bit of magic and mystery to spice up what could have been rather crass and ordinary plot lines. Winona Ryder plays the death knell sounding temptress who has been seducing perverted men to coma ridden sleep to get back at the evil men who have inflicted untold suffering on women.

    A promising concept is gradually run into the ground in Sex and Death 101, a would-be black comedy that lacks both laughs and gravity.

    Wall Street Journal

    The crude, sophomoric Sex and Death 101 is neither particularly dark nor even remotely funny.
