  • 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.

    Amusing indie comedy blithely blurs the line between risque and raunchy, often to hilarious effect.

    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. Posey is as over-the-top as a drunk in a game of charades, while DeVito wears the sunny, slavering grin of an old coot hoping to get lucky at Jack Nicholson's pool party. If it still sounds like fun, good luck. Don't blame me if you leave frustrated.

    First-time feature director Billy Kent seems proud that his movie deals with sex in such frank fashion. But if you're going to brag about your explicit sexuality, it doesn't quite work to go out of your way avoiding skin.

    Fabulous! Funny, clever and original! So great to see a comedy that hasn't been produced/directed by committee--a truly individual piece of artistic talent! Bravo! Expand

    Classic line - "We incorporate a lot of technology in our love life." For the women - see it. For the men - see it with your woman, less you want to contribute to Duracell competing with Exxon to be the most profitable company in the world. Expand

    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

    I was pleasantly surprised at this movie. It was funny and cute, the ending was random and quick. But I still thought it was a very enjoyable and raunchy movie. I'd recommend it for sure. Good for any occasion. Expand
