  1. Julie Davis' story is fresh and amusing.
  2. Its bawdy honesty eventually gives way to convention, sentimentality and a frustratingly silly ending.
  3. Davis has energy, but she doesn't bother to make her heroine's book sound convincing, the gender-war ideas original, or the comic scenes fly. Instead, the film is buttressed by song montages and jokey chapter titles.

    Davis not only wrote and directed the film but edited it as well, all of which is no mean feat. Too bad she couldn't have lent some of her own gumption and self-assurance to her pathetic heroine.

    It's supposed to be post-feminist breezy but ends up as tedious as the chatter of parrots raised on Oprah.
  6. There's definitely room for a female Woody Allen, an accolade garnered by a previous film. However, Amy's Orgasm is chirpy, shrill and coarse, more in the vein of one of Allen's more depressed periods.
  7. There is something distinctly self-satisfied about Amy's Orgasm that rubs the viewer the wrong way. The film should come with a warning label: Vanity project ahead!
