You do realize that Calvin's a girl?
And? I want to see if she will come to Sacramento with us.
This isn't a dating service, you know.
Sorry, Shuli. Last time anyone checked, you liked men.
Who said I didn't? Jesus, you dykes are such closed-minded bitches.

This was just a wonderfully irreverent film. The chemistry between Carley Pope and Daniella Sea is frickin' amazing. Love her! I watch it when it premiered in LA, and had the chance to see both of them do a Q & A. So sweet. I just usually see people killing off all the lesbians in a film (or having them kill off people). These women were able to talk about all these issues and make it funny. And for once it wasn't about the main character coming out of the closet! It's like people don't think lesbians have any other story in them but that one. refreshing to see both characters out of the closet and there journey was about something else.
