Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Impassioned, alarmed and well researched (if awkward filmmaking), Liz Canner's investigation into Big Pharma's attempts to create a female Viagra begins with her working with a drug company to edit erotic videos for their clinical trials. Eight years later, Canner finds herself with an impressive array of testimony, mainly about the subtle creation of phony female maladies to justify billions in potential profits. You hear from tough-talking sex experts and watch funny scenes featuring an actual "orgasmatron" (eat your heart out, Woody Allen). But sometimes, the debunking is overshadowed by cringe-inducing graphics involving pills with little legs running toward a finish line.
