Overview

Screenwriter Don Roos made his directorial debut with this oddball sex comedy. The tale is narrated by 16-year-old Louisiana tramp Dedee Truitt (Christina Ricci), who buries her stepfather and then heads for Indiana to visit her homosexual half-brother Bill (Martin Donovan). Recovering from the AIDS death of longtime companion Tom, schoolteacher Bill has linked up with a new partner, handsome Matt (Ivan Sergei). After Dedee seduces Matt and claims she's pregnant by him, the couple steals $10,000 from Bill's safety deposit box and heads for L.A. Alarmed by Matt's seeming disappearance and hoping to blackmail Bill into disclosing Matt's whereabouts, Bill's former student (also Matt's former beau) Jason (Johnny Galecki) accuses Bill of molestation four years previous, a charge that jeopardizes Bill's job as a schoolteacher. To clear his name, Bill, and Tom's sister Lucia (Lisa Kudrow), leave for L.A. to locate Matt and Dedee. Lucia is a repressed old maid who flinches from even the thought of sex, but even so, weird Sheriff Tippett (Lyle Lovett) takes a fancy to her. Meanwhile, questions are raised about the true father of Dedee's baby, and the film comes to a climax with a shooting, a cross-county chase, and the inevitable showdown between the quirky characters. Shown at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
From first-time director Don Roos comes this witty dramedy about family, sex, and surviving both of them. Emerging as a viable leading lady, Christina Ricci stars as the white trash heroine, Dedee Truitt, who appears at the doorstep of her gay stepbrother (Martin Donovan) and goes about turning his life upside down by stealing his sweet boyfriend (Ivan Sergei) and enraging the embittered woman who's in love with him (Lisa Kudrow). Equipped with a razor-sharp screenplay, The Opposite of Sex smartly handles the touchy subject of homophobia with winning humor and originality. In addition to Ricci's nuanced turn, Kudrow also shines as the lonely Lucia, making audiences take notice of the fact that her range might extend beyond the dippy presence she provides as Phoebe on NBC's long-running Friends.
