My Awkward Sexual Adventure (2012) Movie review; A nice balance of serious emotional issues and American pie horn jokes

A smart and clever romantic comedy from Canada, this movie has many things going for it, for one the writing feels fresh and the dialogue is delivered with a genuine punch to the heart, most people have had a break up some time in their life, and even though this film goes to the extreme in stages you will find plenty to relate to throughout.

The film strikes a nice balance of serious emotional issues and American pie horn jokes, I did find the lead character slightly too awkward at times, Jonas Chernick stars & writes this interesting film, I can’t knock him for the writing but if there was one key reason this film never made it as a success it would be down to him playing the lead role himself, he just doesn’t have the charm to pull it off, if Ben Stiller, Jim Carey or an unknown with star quality was brought in to play this part it would have been a smash at the box office, I have no doubts!

Emily Hampshire is stunning in all the right ways, she has a presence on-screen that would make a million men fall in love with her in an instance, while the girls would just hope they could share in her elegance, I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

7/10
