Shy, a small-town butch with a nagging messiah complex, heads to the big city to immerse herself in a life of crime. On her journey, she meets her match in Valentine, a wise-acre adoptee who is searching for her birth-mother. The two lonely grifters join forces and embark on a journey through the skid-row streets of San Francisco and learn the true meaning of poise under pressure and the importance of friendship.

Finally a cutesy lesbian flick
14 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

My sister took me to see this movie at a local gay film fest this summer. She is gay and commented on the fact that there really weren't any films that dealt with gay females on a platonic level. This movie was heartwarming, cute, and funny. I love the part about "can you make us look like carpenters?" It shows the fabulous wit that went into the movies making. These women (who made the movie) set a powerful scene in motion. The people in it are so real, and the feelings are heartfelt. See this movie
