Having read the novels (of the graphic variety), I felt obliged to give the film a try. The trailers are not entirely representative of what the film or the original story was, I will warn you. I will also confess, I know the 8 out of 10 to be generous, but I do it to balance out a few of the more critical reviews. This film is what it is; comedy horror done in a very stylized manner. The acting leaves a bit to be desired. Judd Nelson, I will say, puts in a decent performance for the material he was given – his inclusion being a nod to the original “club” imagined differently.

In short, it won’t kill you to give this a try if you have the chance. Should make you smile more than once, which is more than I can say for some horror comedy I’ve seen.

John Hawkes Helen Hunt

John Hawkes continues to amaze with his chameleon-like embodiment of unusual characters. This time, he plays Marc O’Brien, a 36 year-old polio victim who has spent his life horizontal in an iron lung. Based on a true story, O’Brien is a poet and a romantic, who has never had a sexual experience. After consulting his priest, ( William H. Macy perfectly embodies the Berkeley radical father), he contacts a therapist and hooks up with a sexual surrogate, Helen Hunt. Their “sessions” form the heart of this tender film, and take both the audience and Marc on a journey of self-awareness and discovery. Hawkes is simply amazing. He imbues the character with innocence, hope and wry humor in what can only be described as a tour de force performance. Hunt is equally skilled in her role, combining professionalism, playfulness, sensuality, and compassion in series of sessions which require full nudity. Both actors are courageous in their pursuit of truth and humanity and achieve Oscar caliber performances, thanks to the sensitive direction of writer/director Ben Lewin.

Lacey Chabert

In a nutshell:

Little girl from an abusive, but rich family; grows up to be a fragile yet schizophrenic artist with huge trust fund and a husband just as rotten as her father. He tries to drive her crazier than she already is by having his mistress pose as her childhood hallucination imaginary friend to have her committed; so that he and the mistress can live together in comfort off of artist’s trust fund. Schizophrenic artist figures it out, and with the help of said mistress manages to turn the tables on him; and he ends up taking a ride in the Twinkie Truck instead.

The acting is pretty good, even if the character creation is mediocre and predictable at best. Anyone with a handful of brain cells can figure out where the movie is going about a third of the way through. Not a bad movie overall, but like most flicks that air on Lifetime; it is too contrived to be genuinely engaging.
