Movie: Hysteria

Hysteria is at times hysterically funny (you know that pun was ... er ... coming), at times sweet, and at times a bit preachy.  Was it really necessary that every straight male character other than the romantic lead be either evil or stupid?  A bit more show and a bit less tell would have made this a great movie rather than just a good one.

Oddly, the NYT reviewer doesn't like it because it promotes getting off but not intimacy. Really? I am with Woody Allen on this one. And I think the NYT reviewer would benefit from a few more paroxysms.
