An overly cheerful documentary about bisexuality that is more celebratory than informative.
11 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

An overly cheerful documentary about bisexuality that is more celebratory than informative. The documentary has you believe that there's a revolution going on, people are changing their minds about bisexuals and people are happy and comfortable with the fluidity of their sexuality. I don't know if that's the case, but if you ask many people, bisexuality is either an anomaly or non-existent. This doc doesn't touch on this issue except to say that times are changing and look at all the happy bisexuals out there! The overly manic joy of this doc signals something of an attempt from the participants and the documentary filmmakers to convince themselves and everyone else that bisexuality is great and accepted by a lot of people.

That's not to say there's aren't many happy bisexuals out there, and god knows there needs to be more positive attitudes of bisexuality beyond "the exotic slut who can't choose a side." But the glossing over of the negative aspects of bisexuality (the stereotypes, the suspicion, lack of support, invisibility etc) somehow decreases the film's credibility as an informed source of information on bisexuality. But I suppose every Queer segment of the population needs its cheerleaders in film, and if it makes bisexuals feel welcome and OK about their own sexuality, then it serves a purpose I can't fault it for. Just be aware that this doc isn't exactly the most thorough investigation of the subject matter.
