It was a rental (came to your local indie screen in May of '98), so don't go looking at the box office for it.
The Opposite of Sex stars Ricci as a white-trashy "punk" teen from Louisiana, who runs away to her gay half-brother's house (Martin Donovan) in Indiana when her step father dies.
Also, it's not a chick-flick, it's more of a "GenXer," which means you and all your buddies can watch and giggle all you want at the skimpy outfits Ricci wears and no one will think you're a unsensitive pig.

I've wanted to see The Opposite of Sex for a few years now, ever since a videocassette trailer gave me a taste of its hysterically witty sexual hijinks.
Well, the trailer misrepresented the movie, making it seem more of a comedy than it really is. Still, I'm glad I was enticed into watching it; the movie, while oftentimes more serious than I expected, is good storytelling indeed.
However, anyone with a reasonably open mind should have a treat with this dark comedy and sexual psychodrama, which is certainly one of the more unique films I've seen in a while.
