  • Summary: Priscilla Chase (Posey), a young Cleveland woman, seems to have it all -- the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect husband (Rudd) -- except for in bed, where sex has always left her a bit short of the finish line.

When the problem drives her husband to leave her suddenly for one of his high school students (Barton), Priscilla's idyllic world is shattered. She sets out on a quest to become just as good at sex as she is at everything else in life, embarking on a wild journey that leads her into the arms of the man she least expected and to the discovery that happiness is sometimes found in the most unlikely places.

    It's a thrill to watch Posey incorporate, at last, some true emotion into her exuberant screwball wit.
  2. 70
    A feel-good movie about feeling good, The Oh in Ohio thrums with happy vibes and amiable performances.
  3. 70
    I'm not really sure how strong this material is on its own: I kept trying to imagine what The Oh in Ohio would have been like with other actors in the leading roles, and I couldn't -- Rudd, DeVito and especially Posey seem integral to it.
  4. Director Billy Kent seems to have instructed most of his actors to behave like robotic sitcom characters; the principal exception is Danny DeVito, who simply behaves like Danny DeVito.
  5. 50
    Posey and Rudd are the real deal, so it's almost sad when Priscilla and Jack are left hanging in the final act, their issues unresolved. It's as if the filmmakers lost their nerve when it came time to write the kind of intimate, revealing conversation that can make a sex toy unnecessary.
  6. Even Posey -- who brightens most movies she's in -- fails to stir the movie's unresponsive tectonic plates.

    I always thought of the Hi in Ohio, but the Oh is a splendid story about real life whether one is in Cleveland or anywhere in the world! The I always thought of the Hi in Ohio, but the Oh is a splendid story about real life whether one is in Cleveland or anywhere in the world! The cast was great, no violence, just genuine everyday people with their own struggles. I will tell many about this film. Transplanted Clevelander in SF East Bay. Expand
