Movie Info

Upon receiving an e-mail containing the names of every woman he has ever slept with and every women he will ever sleep with, a man set to be married in just one week eschews his wedding plans in favor of seeking out the truth behind the perplexing message in a black comedy written and directed by Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters. Roderick Blank (Simon Baker) was prepared for a future of predictable, domesticated bliss -- but fate has a funny way of shaking things up when we least expect it. When a mysterious message appears in his inbox and he sets out to discover the origins of the strange communication, he soon finds himself falling for a dangerous black widow named Death Nell (Winona Ryder), who isn't on the list. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Sex and Death 101

  • Apr 18, 2012
    From Daniel Waters, the writer of the cult classic Heathers, comes the new satirical comedy Sex and Death 101. The film follows newly engaged Roderick Blank, who must struggle with fate when a mysterious source sends him a list containing the names of all the women that he will sleep with throughout his life. Simon Baker and Winona Ryder lead the cast, and both give strong performances. The film has a lot of fun with sexual cliches and stereotypes as Blank goes through the list. It also presents the struggle between free will and fate in an interesting and satirical way. While some of the satire works, a lot of it is a few degrees off and has some problems with presentation. Sex and Death 101 has some fun and is fairly entertaining, but has its share of troubles as well.

    I enjoyed Sex and Death 101 much more then I thought I would, not only because of Simon Baker but because I found the film itself was very enjoyable to watch and had a few good belly laughs to boot (one in particular had me laughing throughout most of the rest of the film). Don't watch Sex and Death 101 If you are looking for an average popcorn munching comedy film watch it if you are looking for something a bit different and perhaps odd yet still enjoyable. I was lucky enough to pick it up due to my undying love of Simon Baker and I'm happy I did.
