  • What happens to the couple who seem destined to be together but can't satisfy each other between the sheets? That's the question at the heart of Billy Kent's directorial debut, THE OH IN OHIO. Priscilla (Parker Posey) and Jack (Paul Rudd) have reached breaking point after a decade together because of Priscilla's inability to climax during sex. The situation frustrates Jack just as much as Priscilla, so he sets out to have an affair with an 18-year-old student named Kristen (Mischa Barton). Meanwhile, Priscilla finds solace in sex toys and, eventually, an unlikely stud played by none other than Danny DeVito. Amusing scenes abound as Jack and Priscilla enjoy their separate sexual reawakenings, although couples might find some of the scenes uncomfortable to watch, especially if their sex lives aren't exactly setting the world on fire. Indie queen Posey clearly relishes the chance to take a rare lead role, and Priscilla really pushes her--there can't be many opportunities to play a woman who becomes addicted to vibrators. De Vito's character is ushered in towards the end of the film, adding welcome respite for Priscilla and a palpable sense of release for the viewer as all her sexual desires are finally and gloriously quenched. So, what happens to the couple who can't satisfy each other? THE OH IN OHIO doesn't really offer any answers, instead leaving its audience teased, frustrated, and tantalizingly close to finding out--much like its central character--for the bulk of the movie.
