Sex and Death 101 (2007)

Upon receiving an e-mail containing the names of every woman he has ever slept with and every women he will ever sleep with, a man set to be married in just one week eschews his wedding plans in favor of seeking out the truth behind the perplexing message in a black comedy written and directed by Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters. Roderick Blank (Simon Baker) was prepared for a future of predictable, domesticated bliss -- but fate has a funny way of shaking things up when we least expect it. When a mysterious message appears in his inbox and he sets out to discover the origins of the strange communication, he soon finds himself falling for a dangerous black widow named Death Nell (Winona Ryder), who isn't on the list. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Theatrical Feature Running Time: 117 mins
Sex and Death 101 (2007)
Quite a funny film, so included it in the collection here. I had to watch it since it had Winona Ryder, but not a very big part for her. It dealt with a lot of mature subject matters in a light whimsical way, and of course dealing with death and life (sexual mostly).

Death Nell is on the list in her real name and is last on the list and which is why when he has like 20 names left he starts to freak out. I really hate it when reviewers can not even get the plot right.

The bus scene reminded me of one scene in the "Babysitters".
