Did You Know?


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.

This film is the best indie film I've seen in years!
29 October 2004 | by (Phoenix) – See all my reviews

This is the first time a female has written a movie about being a woman. It's so true to life when you look at the way she acts in each situation. People sometimes make choices that other people will never understand.

For instance: in the film, the girl leaves her perfect boyfriend to date a charismatic smarmy type of guy who is also cute. That may seem strange to some people, but it's not! I know many girls who've broken up with 'the perfect guy', and I know many girls who've also been head over heels with a guy who is so smooth it's sickening...

That's what's so perfect about this film. It has so many different stories within it, all of which show a situation to which every mid twenties female can relate.

Another bonus is that the three male leads: Brad Rowe, Brian Callen, and Brian Green are gorgeous. The two female leads are both hot. To top it off, every person in the film is amazingly talented, with meticulous comic timing.

My comment: Great film, well made, and can't wait to see the next one by this bunch.
