5.0 out of 5 stars Has appeal for heterosexuals too! February 14, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I reccently rented this movie and appreciated the way it avoided the overglossed perfect world trap that so many other love movies have stuck themselves in. Also it takes great care to avoid the preachy and heavy handed treatment given to many coming of age novels. The result: a dynamic product that anybody regardless of sexuality can relate to.

Sure, the title may make some progressives flinch (after all, how many male chauvinist fantasies have been built on the "amazing lesbian couple" theme), but I was really proud in the way this movie's script was handled and thought the movie was done very respectively and tastefully. These women seek pleasure only for themselves, and not for oogling spectators who would reduce them to an exotic item. They are natural and three dimensional beings who are trying to find their place in the world.

I am not very overly emotional about films, so I was unprepared for the crying that followed Evie and Randy's hidding. Because these women dared to be themselves, they encountered tremendous amounts of hatred and fear from their town. Whether it was the director's and writers intention or not, that part of the film was the most dramatic (I did not think it was comedic at all). It reminded me of the many publicized hate crimes against gays and lesbians.

Granted the independent nature of the film (as well as the subject matter) made it really difficult to accheive box office sucess. But the world's loss is the gain of devoted fans of all backgrounds who know caring relationships when we see it. Apparently our society is well in need of a wake up call that heterosexuality does not neccesarily equal a great and stable relationship.

4.0 out of 5 stars A film to have a crush on November 8, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
"Two Girls in Love" totally shifted my way of thinking when I was smack dab in the middle of my coming-out process. I must say that the girls, for the most part, had a much easier time with their 'first love' than seems realistic, but what the hell? It's a nice story. It's a sweet movie, it'll make you want to go make a pot of cocoa and snuggle up with your girlfriend. There just aren't enough compassionate, un-tormented lesbian films out there--- but this is ONE, and it's a good start. You'll like it! Tootles!

4.0 out of 5 stars An unknown gem! August 17, 2004
Format:DVD
This is one of those movies that if you catch on cable, you start watching and then are drawn into. I first caught it from the middle while flipping channels and then checked when it would be on again so I could see the whole thing. It is a very different movie. A tomboy, (I can't remember what her name was so for this write-up I'll call her Shawn) who lives with a lesbian mother and is taunted by everybody at school. She also seems to be failing all her classes. One day a girl (Evie) from her school happens into her mother's gas station. On a whim, Shawn decides to see what Evie needs. Apparently there is a problem with her tire. Shawn is immediately attracted to Evie, who seems totally lost explaining her tire problem. Evie seems to notice how Sean is looking at her and after she leaves the station, they each start thinking about the other.

Evie is the opposite of Shawn. She is very attractive and hangs with the "in" crowd at school. Evie has an egotistical, pushy boyfriend and one day has a fight with him at school. She goes to the girls room and happens upon Shawn in the bathroom. She then pours her guts out to Shawn who is totally sympathetic.

Shawn then starts telling her family clan that Evie is her girlfriend, though nothing has happened yet. Shawn decides to get bold and writes Evie a note that she slips into Evie's locker at school. Evie finds the note and says nothing of it for several days, while thinking constantly about Shawn. Evie is battling her feelings for Shawn, worried that her snobbish girlfriends would look down on her if she even associated with Shawn.

Evie can take it no longer and goes to the gas station where she first met Shawn and strikes up a friendship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Realistic Tale of 2 Girls in Love July 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I was absolutely devoured by this film after the first scene. Laurel Holloman (Randy), is breathtaking. As is Nicole Parker (Evie), who you've probably seen in other films, one being "200 Cigarettes". A story of young love and the importance of finding out and embracing who you are. I recommend this movie for anyone, gay or straight. Invite your mate and hit the couch. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low Budget, Big Value December 8, 2005
Format:DVD
I was browsing through and saw that some of the more recent reviews of this movie were ragging on the low budget quality of the film, which completely overlooks what it achieved. So I felt I needed to add my two cents on a lesbian film that will always hold a special place in my heart.

If I'm recalling correctly, the budget for the movie was somewhere around $50,000. For what many people spend on a car, Maria Maggenti was able to make an entire movie of much higher caliber than one would ever expect in a world of millions spent to make schlock. In fact, for size of the budget Maggenti had to work with, it's a cinematic masterpiece. Okay, maybe that's laying it on a bit thick, but hopefully gets my point across.

The directing and the acting by the two leads are actually fairly top notch for an independant film, and the lack of funds mostly shows in the details. The script and acting is a bit over the top in places, but then in a lot of ways it's supposed to be. Just look at the title of the movie. The movie lacks polish in pretty much all areas, but for a basically no-budget first attempt, that is easily forgiven.

The story is heartwarming and does a nice job of depicting two teenagers coming of age who are from two completely different worlds where neither of those worlds has much respect for the other. It's also a good look at first love and all that entails, whether those involved are straight or gay.

The scene where the mom comes home to find the mess is still one of my favorites in any movie just because of the unexpectedness and hilarity of it.
