The Oh in Ohio (2006) R - 3 Stars

Priscilla Chase (Parker Posey) is a middle aged woman working in the public relations field. Jack (Paul Rudd) is her husband, a high school teacher looking for something more out of life. Their home life suffers when Priscilla is unable to achieve an orgasm with her husband. When Jack's ego is bruised he finds comfort in one of his students, Kristen (Mischa Barton). He enjoys it so much he moves out with Kristen leaving Priscilla to fend for herself.

Priscilla used to think her sex life with Jack was fine but after he left with another woman, Priscilla wants to see what the fuss is all about. She seeks medical attention with sex therapist Dr. Alyssa Donahue (Liza Minnelli) who shows her how to pleasure herself. Now she knows what all the hoopla was about and starts having intense sexual urges.

Wayne (Danny DeVito), a salesman, moves in across the street. Priscilla soon learns that Wayne, though not much to look at, has a certain art in the bedroom. Together she finally is able to achieve orgasm every time and when Jack tries to come back into her life, she tells him to hit the road.
