Couples split up after a comment at an LA dinner party sets up arguments about how truthful partners are in their relationships. There seems to be a whole sub genre of cheap, tired old sex "comedies" out there, that say the same old things about middle class couples. Sort of like Friends, but with more soft porn and no wit. This film is no exception- it had situations so familiar I died from deja vu.

Adam Rifkin may not have the most remarkable track record as a writer, director, or actor, but it would be difficult to think of another Hollywood hack whose career has had as many eccentric twists and turns. Starting out as a bad-movie wunderkind, Rifkin worked on several sleazy B-movies under the name Rif Coogan, including such late-night-cable classics as The Invisible Maniac and Psycho Cop Returns. Rifkin's career took a turn toward the mainstream, however, when he wrote the sleeper hit Mouse Hunt , leading to gigs directing a pair of hotly anticipated studio films, the Kiss nostalgia vehicle Detroit Rock City and the high-school horror-comedy Munchies. Something About Sex , once known under the far-less-video-shelf-friendly title Denial , is therefore something of an anomaly in Rifkin's career, a twentysomething ensemble comedy-drama that dares to take on the taboo topic of living and loving in the '90s. Functioning as a sort of sitcom version of Your Friends And Neighbors , with some South Park -style vulgarity thrown in for good measure, Something About Sex chronicles a trio of seemingly happy couples whose relationships take some dark turns following a dinner party during which an enigmatic author Jason Alexander, in a very mild variation on Jason Patric's character in Your Friends And Neighbors doubts the feasibility of monogamous relationships.

The credits at the start and close of the film are played over a backdrop of a large mass of white rabbits, to the tune of " Let's Misbehave " by Cole Porter. An August review by Time said that many of the film's ideas "sound good on paper" but that the "skits wind down rather than take off from the ideas"; the film includes "some broad, funny send-ups of other movies Fantastic Voyage , La notte , and its fair share of memorably wacky lines" but that "overall it is just Woody marking time and being merely a little funnier". The Time Out Film Guide noted that some of the film's sketches are "dross, but the parodies of Antonioni all angst and alienation of a wife who can achieve orgasm only in public places and of TV panel games 'What's My Perversion?
