The title is derived from the saying "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle", commonly attributed to Gloria Steinem, who herself credited Irina Dunn. Dunn may have adapted the aphorism "A man without faith is like a fish without a bicycle", by Charles S. Harris, published in the Swarthmore Phoenix at Swarthmore College in the US on April 7, 1958.

So I'm a sucker for insanely cheap dvds with silly movie covers and/or titles. I came across this movie in a discount store where pretty much everything costs a low, low price of two dollars. I check out the cover and blurb, the title sounds a bit silly, maybe even funny. The cover looks like it was done of Windows Paint. I laugh as I pay for it and grin amusingly. I forget about it for awhile. One day my mum asks if we can watch the movie one , I say 'to hell with it, what have we got to lose?'. Well, I can now answer that question. Dignity. I lost my dignity and respect for Jenna Matison and the producers and directors of this 'indie flick'. Ten minutes into the movie and I've already become disinterested and bored. Yes, the plot was predictable from the very beginning, no the script wasn't "witty" or "sharp" or even "indie" for that matter. I didn't see the humour at all! The film was very amateur-ish and tedious. I couldn't bear it any longer, forty-five minutes later, I turn it off feeling as though I wasted a part of my life. I lost forty-five minutes of my life to this garbage? This poorly-filmed, savoury dialogue-infested steaming pile of feces? So believe me as i say this: as tempting as the quirky title sounds, refrain from watching or even buying this piece of sheizen.
