Editorial Reviews

This wildly entertaining vintage lesbian exploitation film rarity tells the story of a pair of lonely housewives who fall into bed together after seeing a lesbian couple holding hands at a restaurant on Sunset Boulevard.

While their husbands travel for their government jobs, Denise (Elizabeth Plumb) falls big-time for her pal Adria (Alisa Courtney). Life is all peaches and cream for the lovebirds: They go horseback riding together, play mini golf and go to the carousel on the Santa Monica Pier.

But when man-loving Adria falls for swarthy hack actor, Jim (John Aprea, who you ll recognize from The Godfather), Denise is left out in the cold easy prey for the British seductress Mona (Elizabeth Knowles) who gets her stoned before trying to defile her on a pool table. Jim eventually dumps Adria and the film manages to end on what, for 1975, is a definite up-note: The two women walk into the sunset together.

This vintage melodrama has it all: Contrived dialogue and hilarious early 70s fashion design and sets to die for (avocado shag carpet, anyone?). The original posters trumpeted the film as The Tragedy of Today s Lonely Housewife, and touted it for its Insights into a young woman s deep sexual desires!

JUST THE TWO OF US was directed by Roger Corman acolyte/feminist exploitation film pioneer Barbara Peeters with Jaque Beerson.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring April 12, 2008
Format:DVD
Nothing but boring. First of all, the character of Adria has one of the most annoying voices ever. She plays the clueless, can't add 2 plus 2, and all I like to do is shop stereotype...that is until she hook's up with her best girl friend, whom she promptly leaves for the an actor, who is only using her.

The movie is really boring, the characters, although pretty ok (not well) developed, are actually very boring. So, is the rest of the movie. I fast forwarded a lot.

The movie at least confronts some stereotypes, albeit briefly, about homosexualism and nature v. nurture. It even talks about tolerance. Yay for them. Still, a very boring movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive, sensitive portrayal of lesbianism. December 29, 2009
Format:DVD
The plot for this film centers on the lesbian affair, between two lonely housewives. Both of these women are neglected, by their frequently absent husbands. After seeing two lesbians showing affection at a café one day, the two housewives become intrigued.

The wives wind-up turning to each other for companionship, and eventually, a love relationship. The bedroom sex scenes between the wives are romantic, and tastefully filmed. They are also shown cavorting with each other through a park, on a merry-go-round, and riding horses along the beach.

One of the wives is seduced by a handsome young man, and this causes a strain in the relationship between the two women. The young man was only using the woman for sex though, and then he leaves her. Afterwards, she's left to ponder whether the lesbian relationship with her friend, is truly right for her or not.

Overall, the treatment of lesbianism in this movie, was positive. Especially considering that this film was made back in the 70s. Women's lib, had only just begun to filter into mainstream society by then. Even though society was already in a post-Stonewall period when this movie was made, the mainstream media was still basically homophobic in the 70s.

So this film does stand-out, as one that treats the subject of lesbianism with sensitivity, and in a non-judgmental way. It was ahead of it's time, in showing that lesbians were just as human, and worthy of respect, as their heterosexual counterparts. It was a bold way, to portray lesbians on film in the 70s. Highly recommended, for those interested in seeing a film about a tender, loving lesbian relationship.
