"I am not sure how else to say it other than I am VERY impressed with this movie...there are so many corny lesbian movies out there..and then there are the favorites that have recently still not been 'enough'. This is great!! I highly recommend it has the hold out that we look for...the tension...the romance..and the feeling in the bottom of our stomachs of those little butterflies!"
This one sizzles!!

"This is the story about two women (Robin Greenspan & Lacie Harmon) who portray themselves in the tale of how they came to be together. It is a rather unusual film in that it's narrated by both of them. I felt as though I was in a "conversation" with them during the course of the movie.

Robin & Lacie are both attractive, but neither are remotely close to being a Supermodel. Somewhat surprisingly, despite that point, this movie is still one of the most salacious flicks I've ever seen. It had a unique honesty & openness about it that I found to be rather refreshing.

People who are looking for a soft-core porn movie that uses the lesbian angle as an excuse for a plot MAY be disappointed in this movie. This story has a lot more substance to it than what I imagined, and it's quite a well done piece.

In the end, it covers the question of commitment vs. being with the person you want to be with. There are two extremes. On the one hand, some people expect absolute perfection & will accept nothing less. On the other hand, there are people who are willing to "settle for" someone who does not check-off very many aspects that they're looking for on their personality wish-list.

Somewhere in the middle is where we should be. This applies to all of us, whether we're gay or straight. Life can be very difficult sometimes, and it becomes obvious that it is a myth that lesbians somehow have it "easier" than straight women.

If you're looking for a different sort of movie, this one just might be for you. It offers humor, honesty and frankness blended together with eroticism for a winning story. If ever there was a movie about lesbians that could actually pass as a date movie (regardless of the genders of the two people), this is it!!"
Intelligent Relationship Drama

I enjoyed this film. It is definitely not a "typical lesbian film". Instead, it is like a play at a theater that is brought to film with the best of the theatrical show interspersed with fine film.

It is the true story of two comedians who decide to do a play together and fall in love. The story is narrated by the real two women standing on a stage telling the story of their relationship. Their narration is interrupted by a sort of reenactment of what they are telling you about, starring them but including actors playing the other parts. It is a creative and entertaining way to do a film.

The movie explores universal themes, not even primarily lesbian themes---things like falling in love with someone else when you're in a committed relationship, how it feels to be unable to resurrect a dead relationship, how it feels to try to make love to someone you are committed to but whom you have drifted far away from.

I loved it. I thought it was intelligently done, well-written, and that the acting was great. I even watched the special feature describing the making of the film.

This is definitely a film for adults. Teens (even older teens, in my opinion) and children would not understand the complex issues involved and would not be entertained; also there are some explicit lesbian love-making scenes.

Definitely recommended.
True Story, People!

"I am a little disappointed with the negative reviews that people have given for this movie, not b/c I thought it was great, but b/c of the remarks made. "The actors weren't hot, there were not enough sex scenes, they talked to the camera the whole time..." Well, these chicks are real and this is their story, I'm personally glad there weren't many sex scenes (watching lesbian sex on TV just irritates me b/c they always look phony--although these are real lesbians, so who knows), and it IS a play! Yes, I was pretty unprepared for the staight on monologing but I got interested in how their story was going to play out and the ending--the fact that these two girls are telling their own story--was worth it. I'm not saying to buy it, but rent it! If you like it then throw the girls a bone and purchase it. It's only an hour, you've got some time."
