Instead, it's refreshingly light but only just as believable as any hetero mainstream romantic comedy and thus it doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is. The lesbians are no more realistic than Julia Roberts was as a hooker in Pretty Woman, meaning you'll believe them only if you want to believe them.
Understanding what a romantic comedy is, we dove in with very little reservation and popcorned our way through to an ending that came after some surprising lifestyle insights in a "I wish my family had said that" kind of speech.
After watching this movie the first time, we showed it to a number of our straight friends and they enjoyed it too. There is a message in that. Drop the 'our lot in life' attitude and this movie is truly a romp. Bottom line? It delivers if you let it. If we had more lesbian romantic comedies, I think I'd have rated this one a three. But absence makes the heart... so I gave it a four.
Side note: The retro dance numbers (especially Heather Graham's) were impressive. The appearance of the actress who plays Helena Peabody in the L Word was a treat. While this movie will hold less appeal to women who growl at the color pink, it's also a decent date movie for our community.
I have not been aware of Heather Graham in movies prior to this, however I was impressed. I do like Tom Cavanagh and Alan Cumming although I would not be surprised if some of the latter's role was cut from this film (if not, it should have been expanded). Bridget Moynahan was like Sandra Bullock in many ways, it really made me look twice. Was this deliberate? I will be interested in how her career develops. Rachel Shelley did not have to do much, however I would loved to have seen her character be feistier with the advertising execs. The elevator scene with Gray and Sam included some wonderful dialogue. I did love the 'gay puberty' line. Sissy Spacek as Sydney was interesting.
Overall the movie is a fun watch for anyone who enjoys romantic comedies regardless of their sexuality. The ending might not be to everyone's liking, but I enjoyed the Marlo Thomas (That Girl) touch. What has the writer/director been doing since this? More to come from her I hope.
