'Hysteria' Review: Nothing Like a Feel-Good Victorian Vibrator Comedy

"Hysteria" is a fun fling of a movie about medical science at its shakiest. Literally.

This amusing period comedy chronicles the invention of the vibrator in the late Victorian era, when doctors used early versions of the electrical device to bring women to sexual satisfaction. This was done in the name of treating women thought to be suffering from "hysteria," a vague diagnostic catch-all that covered pretty much all female complaints from melancholia to mania.
