The film's title says it all. This film is a comedy which focuses on Alexander, a scrap hauler who lives with his grandfather. One day the grandfather tells Alex that he is giving him his home but what Alex doesn't know is that the home is facing foreclosure unless he can come up with 125,000 in ten days. Enter Alex's buddy Cliff who has always been a bad influence on Alex. Cliff comes up with some wild ideas to earn the money which includes renting the house out to underage kids to party in. After coming up with every ridiculous scenario he can think of Cliff finally comes up with one that just might work, open a brothel. You can only imagine the problems this all creates.

"Virgin Alexander" is a hilarious coming of age comedy that will have you laughing out loud all the way to the end. The film not only contains funny dialogue but it also has loads of situation comedy as well. This is one of the comedies that has to be seen to really enjoy it since talking about what happens would only ruin the film for those waiting to see it.

Writers/Directors, Charlotte Barrett and Sean Fallon have not only created a witty and intelligent film but give them credit for their terrific casting choices as well. Rick Faugno makes for the perfect Alexander and Ron Howard's daughter, Paige Howard is wonderful as the beautiful leader of the young and sexy ladies. The entire supporting cast did a great but one of the stand-outs has to be Bronson Pinchot who plays the owner of a local bar who becomes a local pimp to try to save his business as well as his sponsored little league team.

What makes this film stand-out among all the other comedies like it besides it's cast is the writing. Sure it could of very easily used every sex joke and prop in the book to create it's laughs but instead the center of it all is on Alexander and the situation he puts himself in, considering he is still a virgin. Now don't get me wrong the film is not without it's raunchy moments and it does contain a little nudity towards the end but that's to be expected from a comedy such as this.

"Virgin Alexander" is one of the better adult comedies I have seen in some time, it's playful but never offensive, it's at times raunchy but it also at times has a sweet and innocent feel to it as well. A clever, hilarious and extremely well-acted film that is sure to have you laughing all the way to the end and it will leave you with a smile on your face long after it's over. This is a rare Indie gem that doesn't come around too often so if your a fan of comedy you owe it to yourself to check it out. Available on DVD July 17th with Special Features that include:

Commentary w/ Directors Charlotte Barret, Sean Fallon & actor Rick Faugno
