Consensus: Sex and Death 101 aspires to be a clever sex comedy, but has little life behind the sex or the death.

John Hartl
Seattle Times

As a writer, Waters is best-known for creating Ryder's sharp black comedy, Heathers, and Bruce Willis' self-indulgent bomb, Hudson Hawk. As a director, he tends to waste actors, and he fails to establish a consistent comic tone.

Kyle Smith
New York Post

This film is headed quickly for DVD. In the video store, though, it isn't funny enough to be shelved in the comedy section nor dirty enough to be filed with the smut.

Heaven help a writer who turns a philanderer into a blank.

Ebert & Roeper

There are a lot of laughs, good performances, and points for creativity.

Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

What a sorry reunion for Ryder and writer-director Daniel Waters, who scripted her far better dark comedy Heathers back in 1989.

Admittedly, it doesn't have many belly laughs, but if you're tuned into Waters' peculiar, highly intelligent comedy style it's a fascinating watch.

Toronto Star

Why not simply admit this is cheeseball porn, assembled with a slightly higher brand of cheese and nuts?

Wall Street Journal

Neither particularly dark nor even remotely funny.

Christopher Null

the monologues near the truly odd ending make you wonder whether Waters had an extreme fever when he was finishing up the script

Seems like I liked this movie a ton better than most. One of the most refreshingly imaginative scripts I've ever had the pleasure of bathing in. It's… More
