Product Description

Amazon.ca

This warm romantic comedy by newcomer Maria Maggenti is a gay coming-of-age story framed by Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass. Randy (Laurel Hillman) is a stoner, lesbian teenager who happens to be failing math and dating a married woman. One day, fellow student Evie (Nicole Parker) drives up to Randy's gas station in a Range Rover and flips her world upside down. Evie is privileged and popular. Randy is poor, impulsive, and according to the other students, a freak. Opposites attract when the two girls kick off their friendship in detention. The flirtation blossoms after Evie introduces tomboyish Randy to the joys of Whitman and opera. Randy returns the favor by acquainting the sheltered Evie with the problems and delights of mature, taboo love. There is a beautiful scene where the two consummate their courtship on Evie's birthday while Mom is out of town. The true test of their relationship occurs during the hilarious climax when angry families and friends chase the troubled girls into hiding. --Margaret Griffis

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Coming of AgeFlick Feb. 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw this movie YEARS ago, going to a freebie screening. I recall only that I really thought it was "sweet" in the way it portrayed the two teenagers falling in love (straight or gay). How believable it was, moments of not-so-great acting by others not withstanding, the heart of the movie, the chemistry between the two very young actresses, seemed so sincere. Having recently watched Showtime's new "The L-Word" I was reminded of this film. The actresses playing the L-Word's primary couple do a great job of portraying lesbians (with credit due to storyline & leadership), and I was so floored to find that one of these stars is "Two Girls" own Laurel Holloman. This spurred me to watch this movie again, enjoying it even more with age and an appreciation for innocence of youth, and the knowledge that these two young women have gone on to successful careers (Parker starring in Soul Food, which ironically airs after The L-Word on Sunday nights).

5.0 out of 5 stars A ... MUST HAVE ... AYE !!! Jan. 19 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I was 16 as I remember when I saw this amazing film first. And gotta say it is one of the greatest movie I have ever seen. The music was also very good especially one track which reminds me Pink Floyd's Hey You from The Wall, I guess the guitar rings the same in the film but maybe I just solve the two songs into each other cause the mood of this part of the Wall (Hey You and following few tracks) is the same for me as in the film. This mood this feeling (now I relate on the film) aw this is such a wondering feeling of me. You feel something which is in opposite with the world cause of one thing ... but you feel you are right ... and maybe you are much closer to the essence of things than others ... and the feeling you are to know this is so catartic. You throw some very unnecessary thing away and this makes you feel to be really free, you feel you fly above the world and nothing gonna stop you. And you feel yourself enough strong to break out of the wall and leave the show in which you would have to play a silly roleplay and what's more and this is the point you found a true girlfriend for you and what you feel is the beautest feeling of you which ever can build up in you and you say aw that's what I want that's what I waited for and you feel some miracle is about happen to you and the miracle is your split soul comes to one part and the other just found part is her. And the most distressing feeling that you are only a half is getting away and from only thinking about who and what you found a crawl comes and runs all over your body. This film tells you about a world which if once you found you could never turn back because in this world you find the essence of you, know what I mean. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Two Girls in Love Oct. 2 2002
Format:VHS Tape
The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love, was a film that I really enjoyed. The characters genuinely seem to have a sense of themselves, and the time that they are portraying, which creates a very sincere and realistic atmosphere. The main characters in the film are Randy, a young rebel, reminiscent of James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, and Evie, a more conservative, naive girl that is struggling against the ideas of the mainstream. The two girls' differences are very accented in the film, Randy is white and Evie is black, Randy likes rock music and Evie likes classical, Randy is a loner/loser and Evie has friends and is well liked. The two girls meet at the gas station that Randy works at and somehow, against all odds, fall in love. Their story is shown as their struggle basically against their families, their friends, and society as a whole to follow through with their feelings for each other.
One aspect of the film that I didn't like was the relative ease of their feelings. Most young teens in this society would have a much greater internal battle about the fact that they had feelings for someone of the same sex, and little of that was portrayed. They seemed to move through their actions with relative ease. However, overall I felt that most of their feelings and actions were done very well.
The history of the film, and also some of the technical aspects are very worth mentioning. The film was shot in a record 21 days, and none of the actors or crew members were paid. All of the locations were homes, donated for free by gay men. Also, the crew was for the most part female, which adds an interesting spin to how you look at the film. It is an independent film, and that freedom shows through on the technical aspects.

Don't buy this, don't rent it, don't waste your money.
I honestly cannot imagine how anyone could enjoy this movie. Even if you are able to overlook the cinematic carelessness, the acting and the plot are still far too much with which to contend. Although the acting is at points, laughable (particularly "Randy" played by Laurel Hillman), perhaps in reality it is not truly the fault of the actors that the characters are so one-dimensional and fake (actually this is probably the actors' fault), but the script gives them so little to work with that it is at least not surprising. This is just another coming-of-age/coming-out story with no emotional center. The script tries so painfully hard to find one that it grasps at any and every possible stereotype (rich/poor, popular/outcast, straight/gay, family background, friend-base, you name it) that it ultimately creates characters so unfocused and uninteresting that they bare no relation to any real person and the plot finally has nothing left to support it.
The true tragedy of The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love is that there is such a void in the genre of lesbian films that audiences are forced to accept trash like this as "film," and even go on to praise it because there is no true paragon of lesbian film against which others may be judged. The result is a comment like "it is one of the best lesbian films I have seen" which, given its company, says very little.
In the end, I believe this film should be judged on its own merits rather than in relation to the relative absence of quality within the genre. However, even given that, I do not think this movie can be considered a "good" film by any standards whatsoever.
