Short Review: 100 Girls.

Premise: A college guy gets stuck inside an elevator during a blackout and meets the love of his life... but doesn't catch her name or her face, sending him on a quest to hunt through the female dormitory to find her.

Starring: Jonathan Tucker, Emmanuelle Chriqui, James DeBello, Katherine Heigl, Larisa Oleynik, Jaime Pressly, Marissa Ribisi, and Johnny Green.

My Reaction: This was a very sophisticated sex comedy... which is the best way I can put it. It takes a pretty good look at sex and relationships through the eyes of a male and does it pretty well and pretty realistically. It also touches on the female side, a bit, too... as Jonathan Tucker does a bit of cross dressing. Katherine Heigl, who usually annoys me, is actually pretty good in it, though her role is incredibly minor. She reminded me a lot of Julia Stiles' character in 10 Things I Hate About You, which is ironic considering Larisa Oleynik being in this movie. The movie does manage to keep you guessing on who the mystery girl could be, dropping clues at any number of girls. But the movie's biggest problem is that it has way too many characters and it tries to accomplish too much. It needed a tighter script with more direction and understanding of its purpose, instead of having about 15 different subplots going on simultaneously. But overall a pretty harmless, rather charming, and intelligent sex comedy.

  1. I saw this and 100 Women (same writer/director) for my 100th post and did not care for either equally. My big problem with this was the fact that the entire plot relied on the guy finding the matching bra to a pair of panties in order to find his dream girl. It's just not plausible and shut me off from the film from the outset.

  2. The whole Cinderella bra/panties thing only lasted for the first third of the movie, so it didn't bother me all that much.
