My Awkward Sexual Adventure (2012)
Mild-mannered account, and general schmuck, Jordan is just about as boring as a person can be. He takes crap from his co-workers and his bitch of a girlfriend, who falls asleep every time they have sex. Jordan has been in love with Rachel since third grade, and she’s finally given him a chance, but he is way too boring and average for a wildcat like her. She breaks up with him as he is proposing right before their vacation to the big city of Montreal. Jordan just thinks they need some time apart and waits for her to join him on his trip. Of course she doesn’t show, and he goes to drown his sorrows at the local gentleman’s club, where he befriends a kindly stripper named Julia.
Julia is in a bit of a bind herself; she’s broke and wants to quit grinding on strangers, and open a restaurant. Jordan offers her help with her finances in exchange for sex lessons, so he can win back Rachel. Things progress awkwardly as you would imagine, and as befits a romantic comedy, the two opposites begin to have feeling for each other. Once successfully trained in the art of making whoopee, Jordan goes back to Rachel, who has been slutting it up big time while he was away, but has also been missing him. She agrees to marry him and all seems to be going well, until Jordan realizes that he really loves Julia, and he returns to her in typical movie-like fashion.
Alex’s Thoughts: Although you know exactly what’s going to happen 10 minutes in, and this storyline has been done many times before, this movie was still able to keep my attention. The acting was unexpectedly good, and I really found myself pulling for old Jordan… the lovable putz that he is. There wasn’t anything mind-blowing or that original with this; it’s just a fun movie that doesn’t require too much thought, and you can just sit back with a date and enjoy. There is something for both the guys and gals in this flick, and I think most people would enjoy it. Alex Rates This Movie 7/10
