From the Dept. of Questionable Ideas...
According to Variety, Jay Roach, a recent Emmy winner for HBO's RECOUNT as well as helmer of comedies such as MEET THE PARENTS and AUSTIN POWERS, has optioned the narrative feature remake rights to last year's Sundance documentary trainwreck A COMPLETE HISTORY OF MY SEXUAL FAILURES, which is kind of funny, considering that so much of the original FAILURES was completely scripted. More on that later.
Not particularly well received in Park City (a common refrain was "what film got cut from the list so that that film could get in"), the film apparently had a decent reception in its native UK (it does have that weird British humor thing going for it).
Karina Longworth hit on both points in her review (although she did call the movie "conventionally entertaining", which is maybe what attracted Roach):
No word on whether the studio version will include penis-whipping. Judging by the hysterical reaction to Dr. Manhattan's penis in WATCHMEN, methinks no.
