Zerophilia (2005)



Critic Consensus: Zerophilia has some intriguing ideas, but they're imparted with a frustrating lack of wit, daring, or valuable insight.

Movie Info

A young man who remains decidedly insecure about his masculinity attempts to uncover the mystery of his rare genetic disorder before it transforms him into a female in a sci fi flavored romantic comedy directed by Martin Curland and inspired by the studies of renowned Neuromorphologists Professor Czierny Ptolemy and Eva Szantova. Slowly immersed in a world where some change gender at will and others seem to make the transformation despite how hard they try not to, Luke (Taylor Handley) is forced to abandon all of his assumptions on sexual identity to focus on the one person he truly loves.

Amid deliberately campy situations and sophomoric jokes, Zerophilia offers a disarmingly sweet lesson about learning to identify with the opposite gender.

November 6, 2006

The script's lazy convenience is embodied by a beautiful neuromorphologist (Gina Bellman) who arrives on the scene to explain everything that's going on.

Boasts a fertile premise but a sterile outcome.

October 27, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A half-silly, half-earnest indie with the soul of a John Hughes-era sex comedy.

October 26, 2006 | Rating: 1/4

The admittedly thought-provoking results fail to make the full-blown transition from curious concept to substantial theatrical proposition.

Audience Reviews for Zerophilia

I'm not aware of any other movie like this one. Unique concept of shape shifting and gender identity that was quite goofy at times, but also kept surprising me.

This was better than I expected. Hardly great, but I enjoyed it a lot. I can't say I've seen a movie that deals with changing genders in quite this way before. It's not a gay film, it's mostly hetero sex, but one that explores sexuality in a slightly different way. Basically, love whomever you choose according to who you are. Expect simplistic writing, and plotting (after school special with nudity), and enjoy the intent. Side note: Kudos to whoever was in charge of casting, There are some really great looking actors in this film. :)
