I still remember this one
17 May 2006 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

A German immigrant's father is coming to visit her in New York. She told him she was an actress and is married. In reality she's unemployed and still not sure of her sexual orientation. So she gets a gay best friend to play her husband. Her father arrives and things barrel out of control.

I caught this back in 1991 at a Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and have never forgotten it. I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasurably surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It was shot on a VERY low budget and looked pretty bad but the story and characters were very interesting and it had twists and turns that I didn't see coming. The acting was dead on target too--not one bad performance here. I also found the protagonist's sexual awakening to be realistic and well done. We also had one of the producers at our screening and she told us how hard it was to make this--some actors dropped out of the movie at the last minute and they had to scramble to find replacements. Still it turned out beautifully.

Good luck finding a print of this one, but if you get a chance it's well worthing viewing. I give it a 9.
