Put your tongue in your cheek and you'll love this movie
30 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie was a great spoof of spy movies. Not only that, the fact that it features a love story between two women is ground breaking. Not because it was the greatest story ever told, but for just the opposite reason, it was treated in a very casual manner. There are reviews that state this move would be terrible if it weren't two women, or it would be so much better if it wasn't two women. The whole point is it IS two women. Just like "Thelma and Louise" would have been a totally different movie with two men, this one breaks ground by being a cheesy, silly, spy spoof for lesbians. (I also think it's important to state up front that this does involve two women. With a PG - 13 rating I know there will be some parents horrified to have their kids see two women in love. I may not agree with their politics but I agree with their right to disagree.)

Also, anyone who can appreciate a movie on a shoestring (for Hollywood) budget, will really appreciate this very slick effort for 4 million dollars. Good writing, well directed and some good chemistry between the actors. Also, killer soundtrack. I think most 20 to 40 somethings with a sense of humor and a willing suspension of disbelief would enjoy this movie.
