Sex and Death 101
|2.5 out of 5 stars|
Just before he's to marry Fiona, Roderick Blank receives an anonymous e-mail with 101 names on it; Fiona's is the 29th, the first 28 are women Rod has slept with, and the 30th turns out to be the stripper at his bachelor party. The notion that he will have sex with 70 more people sends Rod into crisis mode, especially after three odd men in an aseptic office confirm that a celestial machine has made an error. They suggest destroying the list, but Rod finds that easier said than done. Working his way through it consumes him, plus he realizes that death may await him after #101. Meanwhile, a femme fatale nicknamed Death Nell is putting men into a coma. Are they fated to meet?
So this was the premise of the movie that i just watched and to my amazement, it was actually quite good. The basic premise is that the Simon Baker, about to get married, gets a list of all the women he has slept with and will sleep with before death. I found it to be quite interesting to think about guys or girls who were given this list. Would it force you to go in a different direction, or try and alter your path? What if your list was 60 long and you didn't want to be with that many people, how would you stop progress?
I also found myself relating to the main character in the movie a few times. He would say something and I would start laughing because I thought the same thing. Sometimes its just about the look...
The movie had an interesting ending and a good message. Basically it was we all live and die and there is really no avoiding that. The meaning we are supposed to get from it all, "Who fucking cares"
Until Next time...
