1.0 out of 5 stars No real redeeming features whatsoever Aug. 6 2013
By Bricktop TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Not that I put a lot of stock in Hayden Christensen's acting abilities to begin with, but this is him at his absolute worst. I guess it doesn't help that the script is terrible, the pacing is brutal, the action is awful, the characters are ill thought out; what point is there to this movie? I'm guessing the entire point was to have naked young nuns prancing about? I can't think of any other reason to make this. Was this shot before Star Wars, or before HC had any chance to make a name for himself? The year of the DVD says 2007. Was it a contract loophole come back to haunt him?

If you want quite a bit of nudity with no humor and adult movies aren't for you, perhaps this bit of mindless drivel is your cup of tea. Two thumbs way down from me. This one is going in the recycling bin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Highlight: Medieval pole dance Aug. 29 2008
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It is Florence in the 15th century, and the plague is ravaging the city. The lovely Pampinea (Mischa Barton) has just lost both parents to the disease and now must meet and marry her betrothed, a Russian count. While traveling to her country villa for the wedding, she stays in a convent for a short while. There she meets and falls in love with Lorenzo (Hayden Christensen) who is enjoying the company of the sisters.

What a strange and oh so bad movie this is. Loosely based on Boccaccio's "Decameron," this tale is told in a leisurely fashion (read: The actors are sleepwalking), the plot is convoluted, and I was just glad when it ended. There is nothing "classic" about this movie, which is clearly aimed at the teen crowd. Dialogue (in a wide variety of accents) is sprinkled with modern slang and the soundtrack is mostly pop. Neither Barton nor Christensen is convincing, both completely lacking emotion and charisma. There is no chemistry between them or with the audience. Tim Roth supposedly plays a ruthless villain but has no presence whatever and fails to look even the slightest bit nasty. All the actors need a shot of caffeine to speed them up; not even the amply nudity can perk up their lackadaisical performances.

The location photography is lovely as are the women's lush costumes, but everything else in this film misses the mark. The title gives you a clue as to it's lack of sophistication; it's the kind of movie an adolescent boy would wear out from fast forwarding to find the naughty scenes. It's dopey, boring, and childish; not much here to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part Shakespeare, part Monty Python Sept. 2 2008
By D. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is something like a Shakesperian comedy, only with humor that's a little more raunchy. It takes place in Italy around the 17th century (or so) and focuses in on a sort of Don Juan character who is always on the run (played by Hayden Christensen). He finds sanctuary from the hoodlums who are chasing him by scamming his way into being the gardner of a convent. One can already imagine the mischief a lady's man is bound to cause amongst a slew of virgin(?) nuns!

Of course, as you've already guessed by now, there is a certain woman (played by Mischa Barton) whom he desires above all else. Only problem is, she's betrothed to, not one, but two(!) other men. Oh, what's a playboy to do!?

As the title indicates, there is some gratuitous nudity in the film. However, I actually thought there would be much more than there was, especially as they were constantly discussing the topic of intercourse. Sadly, Mischa Barton does not remove her shirt, but she still manages to steal the show. I look forward to seeing more movies with this stunning beauty!

If you enjoy British comedy, this film will likely be right up your alley. If you want to take a chance on a charming Romantic comedy based in a long-ago era, this film might be just the thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK-ish Sept. 4 2008
By Lady Raven RAVE! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I was wondering what to expect when i started watching this movie BUT i can honestly say it was kinda ok.. It's like a sex movie for 19-24 year olds. It was cheesey yet you couldn't help but watch at times.. I would truly have given it 2.85 stars...

3.0 out of 5 stars It started out as a good idea... Nov. 11 2008
By J. Kaye Oldner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I thought this would be a racy love story set in 14th century Florence. While it was, this movie had a porn feel.

Hayden Christensen from JUMPER stars as Lorenzo de Lamberti who beds every woman he encounters. It's not really work on his part as much as women are drawn to him. The one woman he wants is betrothed to one man while another more sinister nobleman is set on having her.

There were just too many tacky parts to rate the movie on a high scale. It wasn't a total stinker as I watched the entire film. I personally don't feel I'm the target audience. Maybe the younger crowd - 18/19/20 - would walk away with more appreciation than I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Romp Feb. 17 2009
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
The wide screen edition of this film is a pleasant romantic romp. It's a silly bit of fluff, temptingly naughty, but ultimately good fun. David Leland who was nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay "Mona Lisa" and who directed the DVD tribute to George Harrison, A Concert for George, directs this project. Dino Di Laurentis produced and has comments on the DVD extras. The film doesn't totally hang together such as "A Knight's Tale" to which it has been compared, because it doesn't tell the story as well. Hayden Christensen, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film "Like a House" & starred in Jumper, plays Lorenzo de Lamberti, a rogue who is swift with his sword & swift with his other sword (bad pun, sorry). The film is based on a classic book "Decameron" and has Christensen hiding out at a convent where the lovely nuns are not shy about satisfying their earthly desires. If there is any religious contradiction here, none is alluded to in the film. Italian actress Anna Galiena plays the Abbess who heads a bevy of desirable nuns. Mischa Barton was a child actress in one of my very favorite films, Lawn Dogs. As Pampinea, the lovely girl whose parents die in the plague, she serves as damsel in distress. She is set to marry a Russian count played by Matthew Rhys, who plays the gay Kevin Walker on TV's "Brothers & Sisters." He gets sidetracked at a pond on his way to marry Pampinea. Tim Roth plays the bad guy, seemingly out of step with the comedy of the piece. Rather than a funny villain, he comes across as a serious one, as if this were a serious picture. Roth was nominated for an Oscar for "Rob Roy." David Walliams who was in "Stardust" plays the silly cart pusher in a delightful cameo. In the DVD extras, Hayden Christensen tells about being embarrassed for the girls who had to disrobe. Then he adds that he would go back and shoot another film if offered. While this film doesn't totally hang together, it has enough eye candy to tease and entertain. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars It Might Be A Good Idea To Leave This "Virgin" Untouched Sept. 2 2008
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Truth be told, I certainly wasn't expecting great art in a movie entitled "Virgin Territory." But I had an open mind. I had hoped for something light and silly, and indeed this film is light and silly--it just isn't particularly fun. A misguided effort to tell a Casanova story, "Virgin" is a period piece that owes as much to "Porky's" as it does to any swashbuckling epic. Add some bizarre Monty Python-esque moments, copious nudity and implied sex, and a strange narration by a superfluous character--and this movie completely baffled me. Romantic comedy or teen sex romp--"Virgin" is both and neither.

The film stars Hayden Christensen playing a charming lothario who seems to be absolutely irresistible. When faced with a gaggle of beautiful young nuns, he doesn't even have to work at bedding the entire convent. Every woman throws herself at poor Christensen. Needless to say, those of a more devout nature might not appreciate this movie. Christensen doesn't really overcome the deficiencies of the script. Seeing him in this straight to DVD clunker, I had to ask--"What happened to the promising star of 'Life as a House' and `Shattered Glass'?" Even Tim Roth, who adds class to any endeavor, can't elevate this film.

It's easy to find fault with "Virgin Territory," but I think the film's biggest issue is that it fails to connect with a target audience. Too infantile for a serious audience, it also misses other key demographics. Young guys that might enjoy the nudity are likely to be put off by silly romantic subplots. And those more interested in the story are likely to wonder just what there is to really care about. Those interested in the comedy might chuckle once or twice, but it's hardly a gut-buster. Mostly, though, viewers are likely to be disinterested. I know I was. KGHarris, 09/08.
