Movie Reviews

Kinda cheesy, but enjoyable nonetheless
S. Stinson | Oklahoma USA | 02/11/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Bar Girls" is an enjoyable little romantic comedy about an obsessive, incredibly funny cartoonist, Loretta, who is continually looking for that perfect significant other. When she actually finds her, she thinks it's too perfect and all her neurotic, but hilarious, self-sabotage tendencies kick in. Clever dialogue between Loretta and her best friend, tension-filled moments between Loretta and the film's stereotypical "bad girl", as well as tender moments of self-awareness make up for the film's obviously lacking depth. The intermittent scenes of Loretta's cartoon and the cartoon's heroine are hilarious! In all, "Bar Girls" is kinda cheesy, but an enjoyable 90-minutes nonetheless."
Avoid it!

"I was terribly disappointed by this film. The sound, screenplay, acting and direction are all terrible. Everything about it just screams low budget. It has the quality of a home video created in someone's basement. This is a film to avoid!"

"I was disappointed. After reading positive reviews I felt the storyline was dumb, the acting poor and the relationships unbelievable. Rent before you buy."
A Grand Ole Film!

"I am not a lesbien. I am not female. I am a male. There, now that I've released that into the universe I can get on with my review!I rented this on a whim, curiousities sake granted. Expectations aside I felt "Sheesh, what are u getting yourself into this time Tom?" As I watched "Bar Girls" I began to get into the characters, feeling them, understanding them. I loved the relationship between the two main characters. It was fascinating to watch the trials and tribulations of their "dysfunctional love affair" so to speak. It was fun to see them get to know eachother and fumble around that thing called love. I think it's more fun to watch people in the horrendous dating scene than to be an active participant! One of my favourite lines in the movie is where some of the girls are again, at the bar "doin' hard time". One girl was finally so fed up with "the bar scene" she screams out "this place is so unhealthy!" I laughed so hard at that having had the same thoughts as her. The characters in "Bar Girls" are what made the movie for me. They are all so loveable and intriguing. And watch for Chastity Bono in a rare cameo appearance. Some of Bar Girls was also filmed in West Hollywood. It was neat to see "Freida's" and "Mickey's" and "Rage".I only wish I could get a better copy, mine is a dubbed copy! All and all a neato moovee!"
