Girls, this is the date movie to take your boyfriend to if you just want to cuddle afterwards. Dawn (Jess Weixler) is a leader in her school's abstinence group. A group of enthusiastic, ring-wearing kids who know to avoid PG films and how to avoid being alone with a member of the opposite sex, in order to keep their most precious gift until their wedding nights. This doesn't stop them thinking about sex and pairing up. Blonde, athletic Dawn has her own admirers. Finally one of them has "his way" with her but it is cut short in a bloody way, which is a complete surprise to both of them (the amputated penis got a suitable audience reaction).

Pure, good, innocent Dawn is so ignorant about vaginas that she doesn't know what they are supposed to look like (all the school text books have stickers over the diagram of female genitals). But hey, this is the internet age and she soon learns about vagina dentata, and eventually plucks up the courage to visit a doctor (which is one of the funniest scenes in the film).

Over Dawn's home loom 2 power station cooling towers, which sometimes belch black smoke (via special effects), to hint at a industrial pollution related cause for Dawn's extra teeth. The other obvious evil in her life is her foul-mouthed, dope-smoking, heavy rock-loving stepbrother, Brad.

But this is a comedy, so eventually Dawn gets control of her vagina and takes control of her life. Despite the topic there is not very much nudity or even that much blood. I recommend this to anyone who likes the strange and it is a "must see" for any woman who fantasies about permanently emasculating a man in a uniquely female way.

Ian's rating 4/5
