  1. Surprise after surprise follows in this increasingly dark comedy, which is loaded with sharp observations and exceptionally complex characterizations.
  2. 50
    Dangerously low on laughs and sex, not to mention believability.
  3. Starts quirky, grows steadily darker, doesn't build much excitement.
  4. 40
    All the male pulchritude can't make up for a muddled script.
  5. 40
    The cutesy opening of writer-director David Moreton's Testosterone (co-written with Dennis Hensley) turns out to be a crippling miscalculation.

    We're teased with the prospect of a deeper context.

    I can honestly think of no reason why anyone would want to see Testosterone apart from the rumor that the film contains a full-frontal shot of Antonio Sabato Jr. naked.

    Although beautifully filmed, the script of Testosterone is absolutely horrible. Argentina is portrayed as a decadent "European" country (forget that it is in Latin America) crossed with the most pathetic Latin Lover (and violent murderer) stereotypes. The main character plays the Ugly American abroad to the utmost and seems to have a head-splitting caffeine migraine throughout the entire movie. It is painful to watch this film, which is a shame, given all the attractive male (and female) actors and scenes of hot gay sex. Sonia Braga, an actress I adore, plays a terribly written and poorly acted matriarch. See at your own risk. Do not waste your money on the DVD. Expand
