Theatrical reportBill Murray, along with some other famous people, stars in this comedy... er... no, it says comedy on the cover but I don't know why anyone would think Speaking of sex is that funny. The title fits well: every time someone talked about sex my endorphin levels peaked right off the scale. Horrible.
It's a good film for the middle-aged couples who're having troubles; you won't have any problems from either side after this. Plus, it may well turn up on TV next year!
I give Speaking of sex such a high score because I really enjoyed it. From beginning to end. It's not the greatest script in the world, in fact, I think it was supposed to be a soft core porn flick but they made it into a comedy when they got the big shot stars.
Yes, to me, everything is about sex. You can base any even on life on one of three things: sex, war or love. Without any one you cannot have the others.
