Attractive cast and well-made on a low budget
25 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This involves four 20 somethings in NYC. Womanizing lesbian Bridget (Marja Lewis Ryan) lives with her str8 roommate Trip (Todd Kubrak). He's having problems with his girlfriend Chloe (Liz Osborne). Greg (Daniel Carlisle) and Molly (Emily Peck) are living together before they get married...but Greg is too mild-mannered and Molly wants more. They all meet at a bar called Four Faced Liar. They become friends but then Molly falls in love with Bridget and things get unpleasant.

As I said the cast is attractive (especially Carlisle) and it's well done...but there's nothing really new or extraordinary here. The story has been done before and, in a lot of ways, this just seems like an ordinary Hollywood movie with a lesbian twist. We almost constantly hear some song on the soundtrack while watching the characters react to something. Seriously--that's been done hundreds of times before and this adds nothing new. However I must admit the songs were good. Also good is the script--it's well-written and interesting and it had an ending that no Hollywood studio would touch. The acting was all good--especially by Ryan and Kubrak. Carlisle does wonders with a very hard role. His character had to always be laid-back and passive--but you see the sadness and anger in his eyes. When he blows up at the end it's shocking--as it should be. No great shakes but worth seeing. Not rated but it would get an R for language and some discreet lesbian sex scenes. BTW--the cover of the DVD suggests that this is a sex movie and it isn't. No nudity here at all but it comes close a few times. I give it a 7.
