Voice Uber Alles

The plot of Opposite of Sex reads just like a Jerry Springer episode, with a troubled teen wrecking her half-brother's relationship by stealing his boyfriend. Every life ends up changed, but few for the better. Throughout, the voiceover track turns this biting drama into a strange comedy. Writer/director Don Roos likes to toy with the audience's expectations in amusing ways but overall, the movie isn't entirely enjoyable. While excellently executed, it's a little too disturbing to really leave the audience happy.
