Dome Pondering Movie Review: Sex Ed (2014)

What is it about? 

Desperate for a job, Ed stumbles into an afterschool coordination job that eventually leads him into teaching sex education for middle-school students despite the fact that he is a virgin. 

Who is in it? 

Haley Joel Osment - Ed Cole

Lorenza Izzo - Pilar

Glen Powell - JT

Favorite Scene: 

[spoiler alert] 

After Pilar finally makes a move on Ed, he turns it down as he not just values sex, but the way in which it should be used. 

Favorite Quote: 

"Stop looking at life like a series of checklists."

"Manhood isn't all wanting a woman and not getting her, it's having a woman, and knowing, you don't feel the madness"

Review: 

I picked this one off of Netflix, and from the description, I have to say, I expected something along the likes of 40 Year Old Virgin. While it shared some comparisons, Sex Ed is actually a nice little comedy that takes the topic of sex and handles it in a more practical way, especially when it comes to youth. 

The film has it's raunchy moments, and of course, I always shiver when underage children are asked to swear or say graphic things in a film for a laugh (I just don't think it's needed), but other than that, Sex Ed presents the topic of sex as more of a treasure than an end in which we see from most films. There is the underlying and surprising message in the film of what makes a man, a man, and how sex doesn't define that. 

Of course, the biggest takeaway from the film is that Haley Joel Osment is still alive, and yes, is still a very, very, good actor. He easily carries this film and it's worth the watch. 

All in all, this film is alright. Perfect for a good Netflix watch. Nothing more, nothing less. 

Grade: 2.5/5

1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well.

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.
