The Opposite Of Sex

4

If Wednesday Addams grew up, she'd be a lot like Dedee Truitt. Christina Ricci's scheming bitch in The Opposite Of Sex is a conniving little post-pubescent monster who wants everything her own way - and if that means pinching her brother's boyfriend or shooting the father of her unborn baby, that's fine by Dedee. She's a memorably rotten character in a wonderfully caustic comedy of bad manners unflinchingly written and directed by Don Roos. Ricci is brilliant and co-stars Martin Donovan, Lyle Lovett and Ivan Sergei all give fine performances. But the biggest surprise is Lisa Kudrow, ditching her irritating Phoebe persona to play an uptight spoilsport.
