Another 3 star effort, this exploitative look at increasing sexual awareness in the modernizing Catholic Church started strong when the jokes started to run thin in the second half they resorted to exploitation - two quick insert shots of full frontal nudity, both male and female.
This actually detracted from the short as a whole - a bit of a weak ending just going for the shock value with no motivation - even within the genre of sex education.
ADHDMI looked like they had a lot of fun making this short, and the production values were good - would have been a four if the shock shots were a bit more motivated. But this short is probably what Ant was expecting when throwing in Sex Education so may go a bit further then my review indicates.
OMG. Priests and Nun's teaching sex education. Incredibly rude :)
This catholic church program I found quite amusing. I'm also not sure it needed the full frontal nudity as it was just a "on next weeks show" kind of shot but I can see what they were going for.
Thought there were some quite funny gags in it and some of the acting was very funny.
Nice presentation overall and found it very funny.
I look forward to what they come up with next year
The rumours are true, it's got both sets of genitals. The ultimate moment in this film forces everyone in the audience to re-play the whole thing instantly in their heads with a new context, just brilliant timing and totally brazen nerve. The film starts very strong with a slick opening sequence but begins to drag as the education itself, which is set with devout Catholics in a church, starts. Unfortunately suffers from seeming to have only one location, and from using up its joke quite early in the piece. Clever wit and some great actions/moments, this won't be an easy one to forget.
Maybe I’m just a massive prude, but this one wasn’t really for me. Presented as an episode of television show or something where a priest teaches a bunch of nuns about sex. However the film is basically just a series of jokes attempting shock tactics for shock tactics’ sake. There is a condom on a virgin mary statue, there is a giant bucket of cum, there are brief shots of female genitals, there are brief shots of male genitals. The film is fairly slick, but lack of any substance or more than one joke left me feeling a little limp.
This would have been so much better without the naked shock-shots at the end - found that disappointing. There were some genuine laughs in there, but I felt those last shots were too low-brow for my tastes and tainted the rest of the film for me.
Loved how this movie started out! was a shame that towards the end they started to go for the shock factor. Was obvious this team had a lot of fun making their movie and I look forward to seeing what they come out with next
