Jason goes to Jewfest South for AN AWKWARD SEXUAL ADVENTURE

I was more than a little surprised to see such a sexually explicit title on the schedule for this festival. I was a little more surprised to see that the movie is just as explicit as the title would suggest. There is a fair amount of fully frontal nudity and sexual situations...and very little Jewish content. So with that warning (or enticement) out of the way, I can say it's also a very funny movie. Jordan is a nice (overly nice) Jewish accountant in Winnipeg, dating the girl he's had a crush on since...forever. He's just not that good at sex. In the opening scene he's going to town and she's falling asleep. So when she suggests maybe they shouldn't take their romantic trip to Niagara Falls...he proposes. And she promptly dumps him. And then he takes a trip to Toronto to meet up with his Indian horndog friend and learn how to be a great lover. And when a night at a strip club ends with him waking up hungover on a stripper's couch, figure she's gonna be the stripper with a heart of gold and they're going to end up together. At least, that's what I thought at first, but there are enough plot twists and enough bad mistakes on his part to wonder if he'll end up with (or deserve) anybody. And...I won't spoil the ending for you. But I will say that since this was a Jewish Film Festival, even with all the sex comedy the biggest laugh still came from an accountant joke.
