A fun, romantic comedy, it’s also a bit predictable. It’s groundbreaking in that the lovers are both women, and it’s a big step ahead for showing a gay or lesbian romance in a mainstream style. Yet, it’s also a very small step ahead for that same reason.
The mainstream feature film formula is a little too trite for any romantic comedy these days. I would have loved to see some fresh spins and twists, especially from the very talented filmmaker Shamim Sarif. Knowing what she’s capable of makes this offering disappointing.
There are a few laughs. It just could have been better.
