Sure, The Bluetooth Virgin may not find love right around the corner, but it's a film I'll have no problem recommending 20 years from now. That's got to count for something.

It's not too much to hazard that Billy Wilder would have enjoyed The Blue Tooth Virgin.

Playing like a junior version of an early David Mamet talkfest, this arch look at the ups and downs of struggling screenwriters has more than its share of well-landed zingers.

The film is low budget and uneven in spots, but the dialogue is biting, Russell Brown's direction is often razor-sharp and the action climaxes with a virtuoso cameo appearance by the great Karen Black as a wily and wise script consultant.
