I don’t know what to say about this. It’s really a movie about rape and how when a woman says no it means no. The basic plot is Dawn is a good girl and goes to a school that has an abstinence class. She is president of this class and meets a boy that she wants to have relations with but only after she marries. She goes out on a date with him and he tries to rape her. She happens to have sentient teeth in her vagina that respond to her panicking. Dawn’s vagina eats the dicks/fingers/hands off of men that violate her. (Every rape victims dream.)

The movie attempts to give a girl a power to take away the pain of being a victim and then uses it to switch the story around so that she is the perpetrator instead. I feel like this movie didn’t hit the comedic points that it could and it stressed too much that a woman can use her sexuality as a weapon. I personally didn’t like this film, though it was meant to make women feel powerful, it felt stupid and childish(despite all the sex).

I give this film 2 false teeth out of 10. It just didn’t do it for me.
