Jed Weintrob directed this look at how Internet sex sites bring people together, while simultaneously keeping them apart. John Roth (Josh Hamilton) and his friend Moe Curley (Harrold Perrineau) spend a remarkable amount of time at Intercon-X, a pornographic website. All of the characters spend a great deal of time in cyberspace. Eventually, John shares a sexual act online with Jordan (Vanessa Ferlito), another regular at Intercon-X. Eventually Jordan and Moe engage in an actual affair, which finally forces all of the characters to deal with each other in the real world, and not just in… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Amateurish drivel, which is headed for Skinemax in a hurry."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"There's something so familiar and commonplace about this story and its characters -- and maybe that has something to do with how much the Internet is a part of our everyday lives -- it's hard to get particularly thrilled."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A [reasonably] compelling, refreshingly non-judgmental look at the newest phase of one-handed clapping."
‑ Andrew Wright, Portland Mercury
"A 90-minute hairy-palm horror show, one that will strike terror into the heart of anyone who shares a keyboard with a lonely, Web-crazed roommate."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"At its heart, On_Line is just an old-fashioned movie about people, relationships and making connections in an isolated world. And in this sense, the movie is very successful."
‑ Laine Ewen, Premiere Magazine
"The youthful cast is lively enough to make the enterprise almost work, presenting a time capsule of cyber- communication that should be more interesting 20 years from now."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"It does a good job of portraying the day-to-day life of these online obsessives, but we realize eventually that they are more interesting because they are online."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Although far-fetched at times, On Line gives us likable enough characters and several laugh out loud moments. Director Jed Weintrob has a distinct visual flair."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"A pleasant, small comedy that will have you smiling."
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
"Actually admits that human beings think about sex. A lot."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"Weintrob's stylish visuals mimic Web technologies, which succeed in making his characters seem all the more removed from reality. Now if someone would find a way to equip theater seats with a 'delete' key, we could be rid of them completely."
‑ Janice Page, Boston Globe
"If you like scenes of characters sticking hands down their pants, this is the film for you."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"With a fearlessness for being honest, the situations the characters find themselves in are embarrassing and laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Doomed by Weintrob's passion for the Web, his passionless characters are little more than manipulated 'bots' -- and audiences, absenting possible hipster appeal, may vote more zeroes than ones for this digital tale."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"...a savvy, shrewd commentary on the listless self-absorption of modern computer cocooners."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
