The Oh in Ohio (2006)

Parker Posey fans will drool over her performance as Priscilla, ice queen of Cleveland in The Oh In Ohio. Despite the iciness, Posey is charming and likable in this seldom funny but somewhat endearing comedy about a woman who learns to have an orgasm. Liza Minnelli as a masturbation therapist, Heather Graham as a sex shop clerk, Danny DeVito as the pool guy, Paul Rudd as Posey's husband and Mischa Barton (?) as the high school student all rise to Posey's crescendo nicely but the whole is worth less than its (private) parts.
