5.0 out of 5 stars Lesbian Content was Good, but the Rest Was Even Better!! November 25, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I'll be the first to admit that I was unsure if I would be able to sit still long enough to watch this entire movie, but once I got into it, I couldn't turn it off. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories and could relate to each of them.
My girlfriend and I watched it at the urging of another of our friends. She liked the whole thing, but recommended the first story, which deals with a new lesbian relationship. Movies about lesbians are traditionally pretty cheesey, so if we stumble onto something good, we tell all of our friends in about 2 seconds. That's what got us to watch it in the first place.
Turns out that that first story WAS very well done, and accurately portrayed the insecurity many of us feel in our first lesbian relationships, but the rest of the movie was good enough to almost overshadow the tasteful and sexy scenes between Kate Capshaw and Elle McPherson. Because I have sisters, I totally related to the second story. Because I have been cheated on, I liked and understood the third story and it's ending. The fourth story was just a shocker and had such a "hoo-rah" ending that I liked it, despite the improbability of it actually happening.
This is good stuff. If someone recommends it for the lesbian sex alone, watch further, because the whole thing was compelling and relatable. It's "If These Walls - I & II" with a twist.
Five stars!
P.s. I am searching for the artist who sang the "lonely painter" song during the first story. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Spielberg is so lucky! January 6, 2002
By A Customer
Oh my gosh. The first of the four stories is incredibly hot. Elle MacPherson and Kate Capshaw (Steven Spielberg's wife) have incredible chemistry. Worth the money just for their love scene.
And Camryn Manheim in the final story is remarkable. She is so talented in this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good yet moving stories, not for the narrow minded!! August 14, 2002
By A Customer
I have watched this film several times since purchasing..As suggested in several reviews Elle Macpherson doesn't look comfortable playing a 'gay' role but saying that she does look good with Kate Capshaw - very seductive and HOT!!! At least some of the HOT scenes are realistic....
The other 3 stories are good too, I especially liked the last story, which was funny & witty. The whole DVD features an all star cast whose lives evolve around their Psychiatrist played by Stockard Channing.
I would definately recommend watching this DVD, it kinda compares to If walls could talk which was split into 4 different stories but its focus was on 'lesbian' stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful portrayal of women's lives August 29, 2001
In the tradition of films such as How to Make an American Quilt and Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her, A Girl Thing is a beautifully exquisite exploration of the complex nature of women's lives. This film first appealed to me because of its incredible ensemble cast, however the true strength of the film lies in Director Lee Rose's flawless ability to weave each individual woman's story together into a seamless work of art. There is no finite ending and beginning to each woman's individual story, but rather the transition periods leave the audience wondering whether the character ever comes to terms with her control issues, makes up with her family, or leaves her cheating husband. A tastefully done film with a feminist sensibility, I highly recommend A Girl Thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars the steamy song.... March 18, 2002
By A Customer
For all who wanted to know about the song that was played during the steamy love scene between kate capshaw and elle macpherson, it is called "A case of you" by Joni Mitchell. It's on several of her CD's, but the version from this film is on her CD, Both Sides Now. I have it and the whole CD is great! The whole movie was wonderful, but the first segment was an especially beautiful story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A girl thing September 23, 2001
By A Customer
This movie is amazing. I would completely recommend it to anyone (woman) who wants to plop herself down either by herself of with friends and be completely spellbound by the writing and dialogue, to the acting, to the situations that most of us have been though at least once. To those who liked High Art, Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her, and Playing By Heart, this is a good choice. RENT IT, LOVE IT, BUY IT. It's got every genre imaginable, suspense, romance...and the whole thing is riddled with humor. (Also, Elle MacPherson is a goddess, so even if you don't want to watch it, watch it because she has about an hour's worth of acting--of which isn't so bad at all)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Girl Thing December 23, 2001
By A Customer
The entire DVD is good. The lesbian component was sensitive, emotional and romantic. The lesbian love scenes were incredible. I would love to see a sequel to the lesbian part.

Kate Capshaw is HOT! HOT! HOT! and convincing as a bi-sexual. Steamy lesbian sex but tastefully done with a superb score by Joni Mitchell. The only flaw with the first story is that if Elle MacPherson is so uncomfortable playing someone involved in a lesbian relationship, she should consider not undertaking similar projects in the future.
The second story about the three sisters is both hilarious and sweet. It reminds us all of the love that exists amongst siblings despite of nasty things we might have dished out to one other when we were young and silly.
Not much to say about the third adultery story except Lynn Whitfield and Linda Hamilton both have a long way to go before they could possibly hope to attain Mia Farrow's calibre of acting.
I loved the dry humour of the coffee house owner, and especially her courage, in the fourth story. Stockard Channing is, as always, a brilliant actress and acts as the conscience in the movie.
Overall, this movie is a "MUST SEE" chick-flick. However, I would strongly recommend that both Elle MacPherson and Peta Wilson take up acting lessons or go back to concentrating on their modelling careers!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this one just cause Elle's in it
Yes this one has her in I'd guess late 30's early 40's but she is still the hottest thing alive.
