Sex Is Comedy is a 2002 French film written and directed by Catherine Breillat.[1] It revolves around a director (Anne Parillaud) and her troubles filming an intimate sex scene between two actors who cannot tolerate each other.

Based on Breillat's experiences directing her 2001 film Fat Girl, the climax of the film features a recreation of a scene from that movie, shot from the point of view of the crew, with Roxane Mesquida essentially reprising her role from the first film.[citation needed]


Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a critic score of 70% and an audience score of 46%.
