When Evie's three friends are driving to the hotel near the end of the movie, the book that one of them is reading aloud from is "Rubyfruit Jungle", a lesbian novel by Rita Mae Brown. See more »
I know this sounds weird but I just can't put the air in the tires because I think they're going to blow up in my face.
Well, actually, you know, tires don't blow up from having air put in them, but um, I'll put some air in it if you want me to.

At the end of the end credits: "The director thanks, for love and support ... all the roughcut screeners, all the dykes who worked on the film, everyone in Selma Thompson's writing class." See more »
This movie is one that I can watch over and over again. It is something fresh and new. The screenwriter/director does a great job of bringing many different
aspects of young lesbian existence. For example, by bringing together people of different races, social economic status, and different family make-ups; it opens one's eyes to different possibilities. It is quite opposite of what is usually thought of when one thinks of a gay or lesbian film. This movie does not stay in a box; it busts the box instead. Every time I see this movie, I am able to pick up on
something that I hadn't seen before. Although this is a movie where you don't really have to think much; I tend to analyze regardles. I found that it is not the what actually happens on the surface that really keeps me coming back for
more. It is the intricate underlying messages that the screenwriter/director is trying to get across that engages me.
