I’ve heard great things about this film and I’m looking forward to seeing it. Here’s the trailer:

Have you seen it? Was it any good?

  1. Kind of put off watching it but there's a token straight-ish girl in there so I was all like, yeah!

  2. Yes, and YES! I really appreciated the diverse genders and sexualities; and I love that there's an FTM character.

    The plot got seriously fucked up towards the end, in my opinion; but the rest of the movie –characters, camera work– was great enough to hold the movie up.

  3. I liked it–much more than I actually anticipated.

  4. It's a cute movie, but I wish I'd seen it when was I fourteen; I would have really enjoyed it then, but at this point… The plot is silly, the character-development nonexistent, and don't even get me started on how ridiculous and juvenile the characters' relationship drama is. My girlfriend and I were both pretty bored and annoyed by the end.

    On the other hand, it does have a number of very hot make-out scenes, and some of my friends really liked it. So, YMMV.

    [ I so know what you mean about the characters and drama. Why do queer movies always seem to do that? There must be some better filmmakers out there! - ss ]

  5. Haven't seen it, but I just added it to my Netflix queue. Thank you.

  6. I've only seen the trailer, but every time I watch the trailer, I think – Melonie Diaz was totally miscast as "needing a boob job". Those are not itty bitty titties where I come from.

    I do want to see it, and hope the ridiculousness won't get in the way of the fun.

  7. I liked it quite a bit. Hope you do too.

  8. I've heard the movie being given a lot of praise on AfterEllen.com. So I guess it's pretty good. And from what I know, there are a lot of hot scenes in there. I haven't watched the movie myself, yet.

  9. i saw this film when it was showing in theatres. i agree with daisy that its not the best piece of filmmaking, but i still thought it was entertaining at times. probably helped that i got to see it for free!

    >> thanks for the email about the updated website! i like it! i'm wondering if i am the only one having problems using the tabs on the home page?

  10. THIS FILM ROCKED!!! fuck yea!…one of the best lesbian films ever!…something for everyone and really funny to. I saw it in the theatre and bought it at http://www.ittybittydvd.com
    and I am 36 if that matters

  11. I really liked it – the shagging scenes are hot, the cast is great (I caught the Clea DuVall cameo first time round – all my friends still can't find her), Aggie was really cute, and it was really nice watching a trans-feminist comedy.

    By far the best bit? The politics. I don't think it was perfect by any means, but what really filled me with a sense of 'yes' was the fact that the debate was between people who were fed up with the heteronorm, and were working towards it in different ways. There was no need to justify the fight against heterosexism, which gave the possibility of a more nuanced debate. You had the older lesbian feminist working for a non-profit organisation, the young artists and would-be anarchists, a kind-of-straight girl, who hooks up with the hottest explosives expert, the babydyke sort of coming to this big new idea – that people can change things… And her mum, who used to write for Ms.

  12. It was ok — it's a young film not very sophisticated.

    j.

  13. Did I see a brief flash of Jenny Shimisu in there?

  14. we went and saw this at the philly gay & lesbian film festival back when it was making the circuit. we all liked it a lot – not a brilliant film by any means, but we (and the entire theater) were laughing throughout and having a really awesome time.

  15. not about the film, but yo what happened to the format around here?! i go away for a week or so & when i come back it's all different! are you gonna say anything about it?

    not exactly complaining… it's just that when you visit a blog regularly, it's like a room where you get used to the furniture being a certain way. either a warning before the change or an explanation after the fact are always appreciated :)

    anyway, thanks for all the great work you do. i'll go back to lurking now while trying not to bump into any of the new furniture ;)

  16. It's cute – it's nice to see a young queer film that isn't a coming out drama. The ending is frustrating though!

  17. i don't even know if i should get started on this film. what saddened me most about the whole ordeal was that this is the sophomore film of the directors of "But I'm a Cheerleader" which remains today as one of my all time favorite lesbian/queer flicks. But IBTC is just so radical and angry and juvenile. also the characters are all barely rounded out stereotypes. it just made me sad. but yes, the sex scenes were smoking hot.

  18. i'll jump in with a thumbs-just-a-bit-down — i really didn't enjoy the drama around the ftm character. i thought it was, while not *exactly* transphobic, really trading on the tragic melodrama surrounding trans folk in media depictions. well, i might go out on a limb and say i do actually think it was transphobic. i have to stop before giving it away, but i'd be really interested to see what others think about that particular scene.

    and yes, lots of stereotypes. and not particularly well-acted. but my standards are incredibly high, so i'm not a good arbiter!
