The Opposite of Sex is the 1998 indie dark comedy starring Christina Ricci, and is now available on Crackle.com. Ricci plays a self absorbed and manipulative 16 year old named Dede Truitt, who runs away from home after her stepfather's funeral. Unwelcomed and unannounced, Dede comes to stay with her gay half brother Bill (Martin Donovan), a teacher at a conservative school. Dede seduces Bills young lover Matt (Ivan Sergei) and then fools him into thinking she is pregnant with his baby, when in fact she is pregnant by her ex-boyfriend.

Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Los Angeles Times

    A brilliantly written black comedy in the tradition of "To Die For" and "Flirting With Disaster," The Opposite of Sex was worth the wait.

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    What redeems the film's surface bitterness are sharp observations, laceratingly funny dialogue and something Dedee claims to find especially loathsome: a secret heart of gold.

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Roos’ talent for vivid, jump-off-the-screen dialogue remains unquestioned, but his direction is considerably more spotty.
