Some friends of mine recommended me the film Itty Bitty Titty Committee because they know the lesbian film Kissing Jessica Stein is one of my favorite romantic comedies.I did not like that film only for the lesbian subtext,but because I found it funny,honest and much more credible than most of the romantic comedies,in which the central couple falls in love because the screenplay says so and not because the story,performances or dialogues make us believe on that.Although I liked Kissing Jessica Stein more,Itty Bitty Titty Commitee is an excellent film which goes much more far away than being a simple romantic comedy,thanks to its intelligent screenplay and its fascinating ideas.The themes and messages from Itty Bitty Titty Committee are valid and simply great.This movie represents a great antidote against craps like Aquamarine and Bratz : The Movie,in which the female ideal is represented by the sizes of the bosoms,the popularity and the fashion.This movie also uses the "culture jamming" to spread its ideas,something similar to what people like Abbie Hoffman and Joey Skaggs did to show the hypocrisy,stupidity and contradictions from the society.The great thing this movie does is that it takes all that ideas putting an own ideology which leaves the spectator thinking and discussing when the movie is over.I truly admire when a movie provokes that on the spectator (at least in my case).I also appreciated the irreverent attitude from the audacious screenplay.The performances are excellent because they show enormous energy and enthusiasm.The only fail I found on this movie is that the ending could have been a bit more polished.But that's a minor fail which did not avoid me to like this movie very much.Itty Bitty Titty Committee is a brilliant movie which kept me enormously entertained and interested thanks to its performances,style,energy and its excellent screenplay,which is full of sharp dialogues and which has something to say.And,besides of entertaining me a lot,this movie also left me thinking.We need more films like this one.
