Though partial to negative reviews, I am suspicious of some of the ones here that only give a blanket one-sentence justification for their one-star rating. I get the impression somebody doesn't like somebody associated with the movie, or is offended by the butch/femme stereotypes. I am lifting that comment from the one legitimate-sounding negative review that I marked as Helpful. It is true that this movie has fun with the old stereotypes, but please, people. . . it's light-hearted, sexy role-playing and whatnot. Not every movie has to portray the political ideal or whatever you hold forth as perfection. Lighten up!
I see a lot, a LOT of lesbian/dyke films, and this one was so, so bad that i had to watch it through my fingers most of the time. The acting is painful, so awful, the storyline ridiculous and cringeworthy, and most of the sex uninspired. And really, i felt like this film was trying to deal with "roles" or something, but produced by people who never talked to anyone in a d/g relatinship.... i ended up feeling insulted that this was the way the people "learn" about kink and daddy/girl. sigh.
one good thing- there is some variety of size and color among the actresses (not the main characters, tho) in this film... that's a good thing to see in the mostly white-and-skinny world of lesbo film.
please, please don't see this film, unless you enjoy tormenting yoruself with atrocious filmaking. I do, and i'm not even sure that will justify watching this horror again....
Lou and her friend Sassy (played by Daniele Ferraro) move to San Francisco to discover themselves and define their relationship. That definition eventually evolves into "captain and young boy", which seems to work for the two lovers, were it not for Sassy's wandering eye and experimental libido. Hence the errors.
A psychologist would probably have a field day with this film as it trots out one alternative personality after another. My problem is not with the roles that the characters indulge themselves in, so much as the idea that they have to immerse themselves so fully into these roles that their lives are taken over by the role playing. The overriding question might be "does Sassy love The Captain, or does she love Lou? And is Lou really The Captain or just a personna for her to slip into from time to time?
The script is uneven at best, but the collection of characters does provide some interest; from the neighbor couple that lives a 50's sitcom suburban lifestyle (albeit a lesbian 50's sitcom) to various punk rockers, S and M and bondage adherents. Sally Kirkland provides some spark as Sassy's mother, a survivor of the Free Love generation, who is supportive yet still a little bewildered by the entire thing.
There are far worse movies out there, but if you're looking for relationship insight or any kind of coherent story, consider something else.
