A woman gets a belated introduction to the joy of sex in this comedy. Priscilla (Parker Posey) is a thirtysomething public-relations agent with the unenviable job of trying to lure new businesses to Cleveland, OH. Priscilla is married to Jack (Paul Rudd), a high-school teacher who is reaching the end of his patience with his career. Things aren't going especially well at home for Priscilla and Jack -- she seems unable to have an orgasm, and while Priscilla insists she's perfectly happy with their sex life, Jack is driven to distraction by his inability to arouse his wife.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Comedies for grown-ups, period, are now in such short supply that a good-natured little picture like The Oh in Ohio feels like an anomaly."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"I felt some of its heroine's pain. She's spent her life waiting for an orgasm. I spent the movie waiting for a plot."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"Tongue-in-cheek humor that's kinda kinky around the edges."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"...comfortable enough, but there are no fireworks."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Most of the 'comedy' has Posey bumbling through one embarrassingly unfunny situation after another."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A vibrator may put the buzz back in the solo sex life, but it tends to suck the life out of any movie not rated with three Xs."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"The script, which was co-written by director Billy Kent, has the forced 'raciness' of a mid-'70s dinner-theater sex comedy."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"O elenco é charmoso, mas o roteiro parece um primeiro tratamento em que as idéias ainda estão sem foco e o tom da narrativa, indefinido."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Much like Priscilla's sexual difficulties, The OH in Ohio just doesn't satisfy."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Posey's such a delight it's easy to appreciate her even in a film as fruitless as The Oh in Ohio."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"The Oh in Ohio would make a second-rate lover: You'll lose interest a while before it reaches its climax."
‑ Matt Pais, Chicago Tribune
"It's a harmless feel-good romantic comedy which offers a lot of cheap thrills and lowbrow comedy, but is too dysfunctional to stir up an orgasm."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A comedy that's never funny enough or clever enough."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"The Oh in Ohio's childish storytelling, paper-thin character development, and general unfunniness combine to make one bad movie."
‑ Toddy Burton, Austin Chronicle
