In A Complete History of My Sexual Failures (2008), we meet screw-up Chris Waitt, an independent filmmaker who decides to take matters into his own hands and interview all his ex-girlfriends in order to find out why he keeps getting dumped.
Chris is beyond pathetic, and he subjects himself to a crazy amount of ridicule, but he does it in a pretty endearing and shamelessly hilarious way. As a viewer, there is an overwhelming urge to smack him for being such an idiot, while simultaneously giving him a great big bear hug with the hope that he learns from his mistakes and finds his true love.
The truly shocking part about this film is not necessarily when Chris pops a couple of Viagra pills at once and overdoses, but the number of women that he has actually bedded.
This film is not such a futile pursuit of information as you might imagine, since Chris learns from his ex-girlfriends some valuable information – which is – a pattern of behaviour that appears to be the reason for all his relationship failures.
There is something to gain from watching this doc – even if that something is the realization that it’s probably not a good idea to contact one’s ex in the first place!
Director: Chris Waitt
LOL quote: “I put her off an entire race of men”.
Cringe-worthy moment: Chris runs naked into the street holding his Viagra-induced erection yelling at women, “Will you have sex with me?”
The shocker: It’s unbelievable how many women loser Chris has actually slept with.
