Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Opposite of Sex

Following the death of her step-father, trashy and heartless 16-year-old Dedee Truitt (Ricci) leaves her mother in Louisiana and goes to live with her 35-year-old half brother Bill (Donovan), who is a homosexual and living in a huge house in Indiana left to him by his deceased ex boyfriend. Dedee immediately starts to move on his current boyfriend Matt (Ivan Sergei), successfully seducing him and then announcing she's pregnant. Bill throws them out and the two race off to California to have the baby. One of Matt's exes accuses Bill, a schoolteacher, of sexual misconduct, which causes a media circus. The only one who has seen through Dedee all along is Lucia, the uptight and sharp-tongued sister of Bill's deceased ex (an excellent Kudrow). Since Matt and Dedee took a lot of money with them, Bill and Lucia go hunting for them. Ricci is marvelously tart, with startlingly blonde hair.
