The Oh in Ohio is a 2006 comedy film directed by Billy Kent. It was screened at several US film festivals from March to May 2006 and was released theatrically by Cyan Pictures on July 14, 2006. Set in Cleveland, much of the film was shot on location at well-known Cleveland landmarks such as Coventry Village and Case Western Reserve University.

Plot[edit]

Frustrated with the fact that he cannot give his wife Priscilla (Parker Posey) an orgasm, Jack (Paul Rudd) moves out of the house and starts a relationship with Kristen (Mischa Barton), his student. Unfulfilled, Priscilla forms an unlikely partnership with Wayne (Danny DeVito), a businessman more than twice her age.

Reception[edit]

The film was a commercial failure, earning back less than 10% of its $5 million budget at the box office.[1] The film-critics aggregator Rotten Tomatoes listed 22% positive reviews, based on 69 reviews.[2] Lou Lumenick of the New York Post wrote, "Despite its seemingly sure-fire premise and cast of veteran comedians, this movie just lies there without a single laugh." Dan Callahan of Slant gave the film 0 stars out of 4, calling it an "implausible, weirdly depressed comedy" adding "there isn't one laugh in it".[3] Entertainment Weekly was more favorable, giving the film a 'B-', with Owen Gleiberman describing it as "a silly, amusing trifle".[4]
