She's a smart-assed, foul-mouthed tramp who can wrap just about anyone around her finger. She steals dead people's ashes and sleeps with gay hunks and religious fanatics with equal indifference. She's Dedee Truitt (Christina Ricci) and she's not your typical sweet 16-year-old. Escaping her rotten Louisiana life, she flees to the suburban Indiana home of her half-brother Bill (Martin Donovan), where she proceeds to seduce his hunky live-in boyfriend Matt (Ivan Sergei), steal $10,000 and lead a cast of devious characters on a frenetic cross-country chase to Los Angeles. Bill is joined in the hot pursuit by an embittered spinster (Lisa Kudrow), a lovelorn local sheriff (Lyle Lovett), and Matt's jilted ex-lover (Johnny Galecki) as they race to discover the paternity of Dedee's baby and maybe, just maybe, discover a lasting, loving and committed relationship - what Dedee calls "the opposite of sex." The Opposite of Sex is a scandalous, sexy romp, peppered with hilarious one-liners and inspired performances, which gleefully kicks down the wall of political correctness and traditional views on relationships. The Opposite Of Sex is a "wicked little gem." - Kristine McKenna, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES.
