Some Girls

A cross-cultural teen sex farce with some good moments, Some Girls hinges on the deadpan comic timing of Patrick Dempsey, who plays Michael, an American student invited by his college sweetheart Gabby (Jennifer Connelly) to spend Christmas with her family in Quebec City. The architecturally stately city is presented as a snow-covered fairyland in the eyes of the Yank visitor.

Gabby informs Michael that she doesn’t love him anymore and that sleeping arrangements will be separate. Fortunately for Michael, Gabby has two fetching sisters (Sheila Kelley, Ashley Greenfield) who each show more than a passing interest in him.

Eccentric spice is provided by the girls’ father, a head-in-the-clouds scholar with a proclivity for working in the nude, portrayed by Andre Gregory in a little gem of a performance. There’s also a sweet, batty grandmother (Lila Kedrova), who’s convinced Michael is her long-dead husband.

Director and screenwriter have fun mixing and mismatching these comic elements and succeed in springing a few flashes of wacky hilarity.
