User Reviews

At least it's not Claire of the Moon
3 April 1999 | by StygianSee all my reviews

I was really glad to finally see a lesbian movie that wasn't silly, stereotypical womyn-identified soft porn or obvious pandering to het men. Go Fish is funny, the women in it are like women we actually know or would want to know, and the characters have a healthy range of attitudes about sex. One commenter here observed that Go Fish portrays the lesbian community as hating bisexual women and any woman who tries to move in the lesbian community and also has any attraction to men, or would consider having sex with a man. I felt that the scene the commenter was talking about was an obvious social criticism of lesbian communities that have this reaction to women in their community who "go to the other side." I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who wants more from gay cinema than "Jeffrey," and is tired of the lame gestures toward lesbians usually offered.
