Zoe Bell: Oh yeah? Why's that?
Terry Frick (Photographer): I can't, I've been living in London as well, I can't breathe, everybody knows me there, and I hate it.

A GREAT Documentary for film fanatics and fans of entertainment
11 April 2005 | by suckmyspamSee all my reviews

Don't let the current score on this wonderful documentary scare you off. As the last commenter said I think someone who was a bit vindictive must have run amok. Read the positive comments posted here and see that everyone who has seen this movie loved it. Double Dare is a great film that focuses on two women, one on her way up, Zoe Bell, and one refusing to go down, Jeannie Epper. Die hard Xena fans will know Zoe from her stunt work AS Xena the Warrior Princess. One of my favorite lines in the film is when Zoe calls Lucy Lawless her Acting Double. And comic fans and children of the 70's might not remember her but Jeannie Epper definitely made an impression on them as she kicked but for Linda Carter as Wonder Woman.

You will fall in love with both these women as they share their struggles, their ups, and their downs. You will see Zoe come to grips with leaving her family behind as Xena ends and she looks to continue her career in Hollywood. While Jeannie struggles to keep working, anyway she can.

In a profession where respect for women is so hard to come by you will see how they earn it and fight to keep it. If you are a fan of film making, a fan of the human spirit, or just a fan of women who kick ass, then this is a film that you will not want to miss.
