Product Description

Teen sex comedy starring Jonathan Tucker as Matthew, a college freshman, who is taking an elevator downstairs at his dorm one night when a woman dashes in just as the door is closing. Seconds later there is a power cut and Matthew is stuck in the elevator with the woman. One thing leads to another and they share a night of passion, but even though Matthew never gets her name or a good look at her face, he is convinced she is the love of his life. So begins Matthew's hilarious search for his perfect match.

From Amazon.co.uk

In teen comedy 100 Girls, self-described "tragically glib" college freshman Jonathan Tucker finds true love in a girls' dorm elevator during a blackout, but when he forgets to get her name he has 100 suspects to sift through, one by one. It may sound like the premise of just another teen sex farce, but writer-director Michael Davis makes it the starting point of the boy's getting of wisdom. Amiable young star Tucker brings an excited and endearing innocence to his journey, and Emmanuelle Chriqui is a delight as the "promiscuous" girl who teaches him a thing or three about crippling stereotypes. Larisa Oleynik, Jaime Pressly, Marissa Ribisi and Katherine Heigl are just a few of the other girls who help him along. 100 Girls is a refreshingly frank, funny and sexy exploration of the dynamics of young men and women and the power of first impressions, reputations and expectations. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When this movie showed up in this week's rentals I could not remember why it was on my list, and that was the case until Katharine Heigl showed up as one of the "100 Girls" promised by the title. With Heigl positioned as the current queen of romantic comedy for recent hits such as "Knocked Up" and "27 Dresses," I had added this 2000 film to connect some more of the dots in her film career. My Introduction to Popular Culture class this semester got to choose between "Knocked Up" and "Superbad," so I had just watched those movies again this last week to write up the quiz for the movie unit. "100 Girls" is certainly in the tradition of such raunchy romantic comedies, a genre that I suppose has been around forever, but to my mind was given a cinematic rebirth that has been growing every since the release of "Porky's." That being said, what we have here is one of the more charming examples of the form.

The set up for the film from writer-director Michael Davis ("Eight Days a Week") is that our boy Matthew (Jonathan Tucker) is in the elevator at a girls dorm with a coed who is hidden behind a overflowing laundry basket when the power goes out. The two of them connect interpersonally and then physically, but when he wakes up the next morning he is alone in the elevator. So, Matthew has met his kismetic destiny but does not know her name. However, he does know that she lives in that dorm and he is in possession of her panties. Now all he needs to do is check out the panty drawers of all of the women in the dorm and he will find the woman he loves.

Matthew is the sort of guy who has never gotten the girl, but is clearly going to finish ahead of Rod (James DeBello), his roommate who has has a one track mind on what he needs to do to impress the ladies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good comedy nobody's ever heard of 18 Aug 2010
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is one of those films that surprises you. I bought it a while ago having never heard of it and was blown away by it. Perhaps because I had low expectations but I do genuinely think it was very funny. The story isn't that original but the jokes are surprisingly 'adult' and close to the bone and there are some great performances - especially from Jamie Pressly - who shines in her role as the most popular girl in school; a role that seems to have been written for her.

This film must have been a hit stateside because there's a follow up - 100 women. Sadly that is nowhere near as good as this. My copy of the film was lent out and never returned (Guess my friends enjoyed it too) and I've been wanting to watch it again now for years but have never come across it again in any shops - so here I am 5 years after it went 'missing' to buy myself another copy. It's that good.

In fact, looking at the overly 'cerebral' review above it seems that this film even appeals to an audience you wouldn't expect, and has something to offer everyone - I myself, for instance, marvelled at the joke sniffed at by the other reviewer with the ben-wa balls. It was original, funny and took guts - even if it was rather low brow.

All in all, 100 girls in my opinion is well worth a watch. And it seems slightly more serious types would agree.

If this review was helpful to you at all please give it a thumbs up.

4.0 out of 5 stars On my scales the charm comes out ahead of the raunchy stuff in this one 17 April 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
When this movie showed up in this week's rentals I could not remember why it was on my list, and that was the case until Katharine Heigl showed up as one of the "100 Girls" promised by the title. With Heigl positioned as the current queen of romantic comedy for recent hits such as "Knocked Up" and "27 Dresses," I had added this 2000 film to connect some more of the dots in her film career. My Introduction to Popular Culture class this semester got to choose between "Knocked Up" and "Superbad," so I had just watched those movies again this last week to write up the quiz for the movie unit. "100 Girls" is certainly in the tradition of such raunchy romantic comedies, a genre that I suppose has been around forever, but to my mind was given a cinematic rebirth that has been growing every since the release of "Porky's." That being said, what we have here is one of the more charming examples of the form.

The set up for the film from writer-director Michael Davis ("Eight Days a Week") is that our boy Matthew (Jonathan Tucker) is in the elevator at a girls dorm with a coed who is hidden behind a overflowing laundry basket when the power goes out. The two of them connect interpersonally and then physically, but when he wakes up the next morning he is alone in the elevator. So, Matthew has met his kismetic destiny but does not know her name. However, he does know that she lives in that dorm and he is in possession of her panties. Now all he needs to do is check out the panty drawers of all of the women in the dorm and he will find the woman he loves.

Matthew is the sort of guy who has never gotten the girl, but is clearly going to finish ahead of Rod (James DeBello), his roommate who has has a one track mind on what he needs to do to impress the ladies. Our hero looks way better when stacked up against the nicotine gum chomping Crick (Johnny Green), who represents everything Matthew is not. At least Matthew can articulate Crick's shortcomings, albeit in a grandiose manner that you may or may not deem to be excessive (but which at the very least will taunt all those of us who were bullied once upon a time with the thought of what might have been if we ever had the nerve to say such things to our tormentors). Fortunately, in addition to finishing ahead of this particular competition by default, Matthew has a romantic soul and cerebral thesaurus that allows him to wax even more eloquently as part of the requisite grand gesture I insist guys have to justifying getting the girl before the end credits.

The film makes a point of announcing the rest of the main cast members alphabetically so that you cannot automatically assume that the first female name on the list is she who is being sought. The prime suspects are Patty (Emmanuelle Chriqui), Arlene (Heigl), Wendy (Larisa Oleynik), Cynthia (Jaime Pressly), and Dora (Marissa Ribisi), and the chief charm of this film is that you can see how all of them could be the girl for Matthew and that he connects with all of them in significant ways. This could have been one of those love 'em and leave 'em type films, but I really appreciated that Matthew did not do the wrong thing in trying to find the right girl. I was right in figuring out which girl it was going to be, but that was not so much because of dazzling deductive reasoning working out the clues (e.g., Heigl's character is going to flunk the champagne class test), as it was wishful thinking because I knew who I thought it should be.

Yes, there are some crude and totally gross parts in this movie and for a fair share of viewers I would not be surprised if those moments constitute two steps backwards that are not balanced off by an equal number of steps in a forward direction. I had to shake my head over the gag with the ben-wa balls, but it was the bit with what was in the baggie that made me want to gag. I am able to overlook such things in the end, but not everybody is going be that open minded, so watch "100 Girls" at your own risk. Fortunately such humor is not the main thrust of this particular romantic comedy, and while it is most decidedly a relative proposition in this sub-genre, I found "100 Girls" to be rather charming and a pleasant surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem 3 Oct 2002
By Rob S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this superbly-written movie, though I reluctantly group it in the teen movie genre with others like "American Pie." Although the teen flick feel endears this movie to many, I think it has a deeper power behind it that places it above the other movies in its genre. I think it cleverly explores male-female relationships and roles in modern society with wit and witticism. The main character, Matt, discovers his own thoughts and feelings on the gender gap through his experiences as a maintenance man for an all-female dorm, coupled with his nightmarish semester in a Women's Studies class led by an uber-feminist. The realizations he comes to make a lot of sense and thankfully the movie calls out both chauvinists and feminists, dissects both sides, and finally finds a healthy compromise between the two using for examples the real-life experiences we have all had. The movie really gets to the meat-and-potatoes issues that men and women alike face on a daily basis. I think that this movie succeeded in doing what "What Women Want" tried to do (though I liked that movie also) because instead of giving the main male character a superpower-like gift, it places Matt in a real-life (albeit extremely fortunate) circumstance, which allow him the opportunity to intimately explore the opposite sex, as well as discover a lot about his own sex and sexuality. I think that if nothing else, this movie invites us to explore our own feelings towards the sexes in a lighthearted manner. I highly recommend this movie to singles and couples alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who says a teen flick can't be intelligent? 19 Jan 2002
By Johnny Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
While most teen movies these days go for cheap gags or crude sex jokes, they very rarely have anything to say. Take "American Pie," for instance. A couple of clever scenes, most at the expense of Jason Biggs, but in the end, all the characters merely lose their virginity, and then just move on having grown up a little.
While this movie has no lack of sex jokes, (yeah, the guy with weights hanging from his ... is a bit excessive) it consistently couples them with interesting symbolisms and downright insightful commentary. The premise is this: guy has sex with an anonymous girl on an elevator during a blackout, and then becomes determined to find her. However, in his "quest" he recognizes the importantance of trying to understand the interpersonal relationships between the genders. As he shifts through the girls dorm, we encounter a plethora of female stereotypes. In the end, he (we) come to appreciate each girl as an individual rather than a stereotype, as well as a more over-arching connection between women.
If you have never heard of this movie, and you want sex jokes without the mindlessness... buy this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Usual Rom-Com 30 April 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
100 Girls / B0014D5PO8

*Spoilers*

Though I don't usually go for romantic comedies, "100 Girls" is a standby favorite of mine. When Matt is trapped in an elevator during a power outage with a girl whose face he didn't see (obscured by a large load of laundry she was taking to the dorm laundry room), he finds that the anonymity of darkness allows him to overcome his shyness and actually talk to the other girl, rather than his usual response of being stunned into tongue-tied silence. Several meaningful conversations later, they share an incredible sexual interlude in the dark elevator, and Matt wakes the next morning hopelessly in love...and no idea as to the identify of his 'mystery girl'.

So begins his quest: Matt has one semester to figure out which of the 100 girls in the dorm in question is the woman of his dreams.

Matt tries several terrible attempts to figure out the identity of his dream girl via logic and reason - including an ill-fated attempt to find the matching undies to the pair that was left behind in the elevator - when he finally comes to understand that in order to find the answer, he actually has to get to know these girls. Intimately, as a friend. And as Matt explores these new friendships, he comes to understand more about women, more about himself, and more about gender relations than he ever imagined.

I love this movie because each of the characters starts out as a movie stereotype and ends - as Matt comes to understand them - as a wonderful, complete human being. The gorgeous goddess who has every man writing in her palm secretly worries that no one will ever take her seriously because it will always be assumed that she had help with her homework. The ugly smart girl who spends every evening reading alone in the library comes to realize that she is beautiful and sexy, despite a lifetime of feeling otherwise. The sporty girl who never wears makeup and has five brothers and no sisters just wants to be treated seriously as a human being, and not shoved into a category. The perfect "girl next door" obsesses that her strict mother won't accept her for who she really is. For each and every girl in the dorm, Matt realizes that they are human beings - like him - and that, like him, they each have individual hopes, dreams, fears, and secrets. And, like him, they find romantic entanglements to be just as scary and fraught with peril as he. In a world where Hollywood tosses out gender-stereotyped Rom-Coms daily, "100 Girls" is a rare find indeed.

This movie has closed captions for the hearing impaired.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE WORD..... GOLD! 29 Oct 2001
By Lukey20 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is like American Pie only cleaver! the dialogue is whitty and well thought out! It's definetly aimed at the male audience but can be appreciated by females alike. The main reason men should buy it though is.... 100 beautiful girls! Some of the actors include: Larisa Oleynik from 10 things I hate about you, Katherine Heigl (so sexy) from Under Seige 2 and My Father the Hero and my personal favourite Emmanuelle Chriqui... (drools) from On The Line and Snow day! Not just great eye candy though fantastic story, good laughs and a nice warm tingly finish! King of teen/ early 20's romantic comedies due to it's original nature... check it out!
