Zerophilia (2005)

I make out with a girl, I start turning’ into one. You gotta admit that’s a little weird.

The co-workers got me again…first Tusk, now this one SMH. And this one was worse than the first…didn’t even think that was possible.

This movie was bonkers with a capital “B”…nothing about this made sense. Billed as a “provocative teen comedy”, a young man named Luke (Taylor Handley) is insecure about his masculinity and discovers he has the ability to change sex at will. The characters were irrational…the creators were asking me to suspend belief a little too much…past my comfort zone. So folks have this rare condition and it just so happens that this really small town has 2 folks with  said condition and they don’t even know it?!

This film has a real low budget feel to it, it really looked and felt like it could’ve been a really campy ’70s movie. In an era of gender fluidity and self-acceptance, it seems like this film could really work in today’s society…but it does not…its too outlandish and as a viewer I got the feeling that it wasn’t taking itself serious either.

But I will say that you are in a for a real treat with the final scene (if you make it that far LOL)…I watched with a mix of confusion and disbelief, literally dumbfounded and at a loss for words…like physically/scientifically, how does that work. Please don’t waste your time with this one, unless you just want to watch a really bad movie…but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Currently available to rent on Amazon Prime Video.
