    Anyone who understands the meaning of the title or catches all the frog references scattered through writer-director Martin Curland's feature debut will have a head start understanding this confused and confusing comedy.

    The gender-bending comedy of Billy Wilder and Blake Edwards gets a teenpic makeover in this 2005 debut feature by Martin Curland.
  3. A half-silly, half-earnest indie with the soul of a John Hughes-era sex comedy.
  4. Oddest-of-the-year romantic comedy.
  5. 25
    There's plenty of material here for a dark comedy, but director Martin Curland isn't up to the job. His film - like Luke - plods along, unsure of exactly what it's supposed to be.

    All the nudity in Zerophilia is either prosthetic or body-doubled. Which means the sex scenes--and the feeling and meaning behind them--are just as phony.
  7. A novel teenage comedy with an astute understanding of adolescent sexual confusion and the nebulous nature of desire, Zerophilia suggests an elastic view of gender that's alternately gleeful and terrifying.

    Plays like a throwback to such transformative adolescent anxiety romps as "Teen Wolf" and "Just One of the Guys," this time aiming at a slightly less innocent crowd.

    A case of provocative issues at the mercy of unskilled execution, Zerophilia is a psychological-horror comedy that pokes its toe into dangerous sexual waters but then scurries away.

    This movie was one of the best I've seen for years.
    Not only it lets you think about gender discrimination it also was really funny.
    It has
    lots of plot twists. I saw the movie once in German and once in English. The German voice-acting was bad. But the English voices fit perfectly. The acting wasn't bad either.
    All in all It's a good film!
