Mary talks about not knowing what fun was before, "like Dr. Spock," rather than Mr. Spock. She is apparently paraphrasing a statement by the iconic character in Star Trek: This Side of Paradise. See more »

So... how are you?
First of all, whatever they're saying is trash talk. Stupid. I know you guys won't listen to it.
Of course not. God, I mean, even if it was true, I'd still be like, "So? Grow up."
But it's not true.
I mean, like, my aunt is gay. Like, get over it.
Yeah, but I'm not. Totally. So...
No, I know.

I might say that, deep inside, "Lost and Delirious" is a chick-flick, but to those girls (and boys, let's say, because girls are not the only who like chick-flicks) who can look further and deeply. It's a smart, intense and beautiful alternative to "Down To You" or "She's All That". And It's also a gay-themed movie that can be enjoyable to anyone.
The movie focus in Piper Perabo's character, Paulie, which has a homosexual relationship with her best friend, Tory, played by Jessica Paré. Once Tory has no courage to admit to her parents she's gay, and decides to end up the relationship, Paulie freaks out. Everything is seen by the eyes of Mary (Mischa Barton).
Piper Perabo gives the performance of her career. And, if we consider she was in vapid movies like "Slap Her, She's French" and "Coyote Ugly", you'll be very surprised (or even shocked) with the way she make her Paulie a character so intense. Barton and Paré may stand behind, but are also great. It's a movie so well-crafted and beautiful that it's kind of funny the way director Lea Pool manages to make a movie that grows every time in beauty and intensity without losing the focus in real life, real feelings. It's a brilliant movie, a must-see.
