Go Fish is a great effort as far as amateur film making goes, but it falls very short of the mark. The characters are one dimentional, the dialog is stilted and lame, and the acting is terrible. I don't know how the film was cast, but it seems that Troche and Turner just gathered up all the lesbians they knew and said, "Hey, wanna be in a movie?" If someone made this film as a part of an undergraduate film study program, then I might be impressed. The scenes where Max's friends lay on the floor with their heads together commenting on the film's events are difficult to watch and feel like bad communtity theatre. There are some interesting montage sequences interspersed throughout the film, but they have nothing to do with the story itself, and in the end just seem to exist soley for the purpose of being arty and pretentious. If you're looking for a great entry into lesbian film, this is not it. Try But I'm A Cheerleader or Better Than Chocolate.
