A NYC parody of that 'other' Sapphic series. Dot, artistic director of a downtown theatre, and her partner of 7 years, Dina, a crunchy-granola dyke, are looking for a sperm donor to expand their family. They throw a party to find him amongst the guests of their close circle of friends: Daynisha, a closeted WNBA player; Dixie, a bisexual journalist into S & M; Drea, the resident Butch heart-throb and dog groomer; Dex, Dot's younger FTM musician sibling; Dim, their next door neighbor chess coach and his newly arrived girlfriend Dani, a playwright curious about life in NYC; and Daria, the proprietor of the Drunken Pussycat, a bar where everyone gathers to gossip and kvetch. All of them struggle through much dyke drama in the Big Apple. Written by Snyder, Dasha

beyond awful if that's possible...
3 July 2005 | by urbankali2004See all my reviews

i completely agree with the previous post about how bad this movie was...it's sad because my partner and i had really looked forward to seeing it...we also waited for an hour in line at the San Francisco LGBT film festival,spent the half hour before searching for parking, sat in a capacity crowd that was absolutely jazzed with anticipation, only to be AMAZED by what a seemingly unedited dismal mess this movie was! what a disappointment.

as the movie unfolded with its endless boring, overwrought episodes, you could feel the enthusiasm of the crowd palpably wane, like the air leaving a balloon...by the end of this disaster, there was only tepid applause, unlike the wild enthusiasm that had greeted the short before it (a parody of Queer Eye).

key point to the filmmakers...i know your heart was probably in a good place making this, but honestly, please hire an editor...it was about twice as long as we could bear...also, there seemed to be an assumption, circa 1975, that all lesbians are poor and uneducated. Not much better than the stereotypes on L word itself, and at least there the production values are brilliant. This was just a mess. Like the gal above said, save your money (or see, if you can, the above-mentioned parody from New Zealand of Queer Eye...very very intelligent and funny! Now that's a well-done satire.)
