A NYC parody of that 'other' Sapphic series. Dot, artistic director of a downtown theatre, and her partner of 7 years, Dina, a crunchy-granola dyke, are looking for a sperm donor to expand their family. They throw a party to find him amongst the guests of their close circle of friends: Daynisha, a closeted WNBA player; Dixie, a bisexual journalist into S & M; Drea, the resident Butch heart-throb and dog groomer; Dex, Dot's younger FTM musician sibling; Dim, their next door neighbor chess coach and his newly arrived girlfriend Dani, a playwright curious about life in NYC; and Daria, the proprietor of the Drunken Pussycat, a bar where everyone gathers to gossip and kvetch. All of them struggle through much dyke drama in the Big Apple. Written by Snyder, Dasha

Really terrible
21 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the SF GLBT Film Fest. It was literally terrible. It was not clever, nor was it really a spoof of the L Word. The acting was annoying, especially from the loud annoying presence of the Dot Parker character, and the dialogue was boring. I do not recommend this film to anyone. It could have been SO funny, given the premise, but it came up incredibly short. They didn't really parody the aspects of the L word that deserved to be parodied, such as the extremely femme nature of supposedly butch characters, nor did they parody the soap opera aspect of the show. They simply copied, but in a dumber and more annoying way, the actual shows of the L word. So, in short, I wasted my 9 dollars in seeing this (and waiting in line for an hour!)
