Oh in Ohio? Oh, No...

The City of Cleveland has turned up in a few feature films over the last decade and has "impersonated" other locales over the years like Clairton, PA in "the Deer Hunter." The newest Cleveland movie is "Oh in Ohio" with Parker Posey, Heather Graham, Mischa Barton and Danny Devito.

"Oh in Ohio" has the distinction of being the only Parker Posey flick to leave me disappointed. If the film hadn't been shot in my semi-hometown of Cleveland, I would have contemplated walking out. There are so many things lacking in the film that there is little point in enumerating them. The only thing that the film did do right was present Cleveland in a positive manner - - - as a great place to live, work, recreate and operate a business.

If you want to see a good film shot in Cleveland, rent "American Splendor" or "The Antwone Fisher Story." Don't pay full admission for "Oh in Ohio."

IMHO, this is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time.

Two vibrators up!

hey i worked on that flick and yup, it sucked (i worked on Fisher & Splendor as well). i loved Parker ('cept her little dog pissing everywhere) and Paul Rudd and Mischa though ... super sweet people. sometimes the show suck and sometimes they don't but the most important thing is that the checks clear at the bank.
