Editorial Reviews

Scarlet Zabrinski, (Susan Priver, star of Mafioso and My Brother Jack) a successful, hard edged, L.A. matchmaker lives in the shadow of her overbearing mother, Ruth Zabrinski (Sally Kirkland, Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner for Anna) who relentlessly tries to find the perfect man for her daughter. Ben Zabrinski, (Jere Burns star of Good Morning Miami, The Mommies, Bob, Dear John) Scarlet's pot smoking brother, an unemployed lawyer, becomes furious when Scarlet unknowingly sets him up with a porno star. When Sabrina Fisser, (Musetta Vander, of Kicking and Screaming and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?) a homeless foreign actress, rear ends her on a calm sunny afternoon, Scarlet offers this seemingly helpless vagabond a place to stay for one night. One night becomes an eternity as the free spirited Sabrina outstays her welcome. When a vengeful Ben tries to seduce Sabrina, Scarlet finds herself protective of her new friend. A mutual attraction develops and the two unlikely characters explore the uncharted territory of unexpected love.

this movie had no trailer so I did not know what to expect. I selected it based on the two sentence description alone. To my surprise this film was well done! The storyline was well written. the actors were superb. there was character dynamic. The cinematography what flawless. Oh, and the movie was funny!! Also, it is one of the rare lesbian-themed films where there is a happy ending. I highly recommend it!

I thouroughly enjoyed this movie and have watched it several times. It is both light and funny. And the girl gets the girl in the end. How could anything be better.

A very cute movie! Offbeat - not always perfect in acting or storyline. Yet, I'll buy to watch again! Also, some beautiful music for soundtrack.

It's quirky, I'll give it that. Scarlet is a good person, though she tries to hide it. We don't really see the other woman, in any depth until the end, but we know she's a good person too. The minute they bring in a man to buffer the zone of okness between two women, especially in a lesbian film, I groan and think about turning it off; comments about the man being 'like a brother' make it worse. Does one really think that screwing their brother is a good explanation for not doing the same to the woman in front of them?
Still, I continued to watch because I wanted to see when Rosita would lose her accent. I secretly suspected she was Russian the whole time. I was gently surprised and happy when the two women developed some intimacy and Scarlet allowed herself to have some fun.
Was happy with the conclusion, though would have been happier if the conclusion happened about midway and went on from there, not for the sex, which is fairly non-existent, but for the deeper happiness and intimacy they gave each other. Maybe watching a movie about deep happiness, intimacy and romance would be boring. If you have tendency to see lesbian film as generally abysmal, I recommend. It's why I gave it three stars. I wasn't counting the minutes for it to end.There is a light-hearted quality. My opinion...

Successful business-person crosses paths with a talented but down-and-out actor/chef. What starts out initially as a resentful, guilt-driven accommodation turns into a close friendship and then loving relationship. I'd like to see a well-done movie based on the same premise. It would probably be entertaining.

To be fair, the acting in this movie was all fairly well done. I didn't even realize a favorite of mine, Jere Burns, was in it until I started watching. The rest of the cast handled their roles reasonably well too, not counting the accents.

But the accents were the least of the problems. Though, I guess there was some amusement value in trying to guess how Sabrina was going to sound the next time she talked. The thing I couldn't figure out is, why do all these characters have to have accents? I mean, it's not like there was anything in the story that even relied on the character nationalities.

The broader issue was just the ham-handedness of the plot. The movie feels more like a point-by-point taxonomy of standard plot devices, than a smoothly moving story-telling. Main character is all work, no play. Check. Overbearing, critical mother. Check. Slacker, womanizing brother. Check. Generosity repaid by overstaying one's welcome. Check. Gradually working one's way into the other's heart. Check. Remarkably unlikely coincidence of events turns into a fracturing misunderstanding. Check.

The best part was when Sabrina cooks a meal for Scarlet and against all odds (given the hackneyed approach to the rest of the film), Scarlet's reaction was "it's like canned minestrone, but better". And, at least it had a happy ending.

But in the end, I found myself wishing I'd watched something else.

This was an extremely entertaining movie. It was funny, romantic, and the actors did a good job portraying the characters. I will buy this movie so I can watch it again and then pass it along to friends. If you like romantic comedy, I recommend that you rent this movie. There was a delightful chemistry between the two female lead actors. I also liked it because it had a happy ending.

Without a trailer it is often difficult to know what you will be getting. I am glad I rented this movie. I would recommend this as a light hearted story. There were a few spots that seemed choppy, but overall it is worth a look.
