"The Incredibly True Story of 2 Girls in Love"

The Incredibly True Story of 2 Girls in Love (1995) is a coming of age romantic comedy about two High School seniors who fall in love. One is white, has very little money, works in a filling station after work, likes classic rock, and doesn't do well in school. The other is black, wealthy, spoiled and privileged. Pretty standard stuff, except that they are both girls. It was made for a minuscule $65K, and earned $1.98M. It was shot on 16 mm and edited using an old fashioned cut and splice technique with no effects at all. The film looks like it was well shot on 35mm, and the editing, despite the fact that they could afford the time or money for coverage and establishing shots, made it a very watchable film.

Laurel Holloman is out, lives with her butch aunt, her aunts girlfriend, and an ex of her aunt. Nicole Parker lives with her upper class mother, and is one of the in crowd at school. They meet at the gas station, then again in the girls room at school. Eventually, they managed to progress from friends to sweethearts to lovers. During the climatic love scene, both girls show breasts.

This was the first effort from Maria Maggenti, and remains her only feature as director. According to her feature length commentary, much of the story was autobiographical, and she dedicated the movie to her first girlfriend. IMDb readers have it at 6.6 of 10. Ebert gave three stars, but Berardinelli was unenthusiastic at 2 1/2, although he enjoyed the last 2/3 of the film. The film worked for me, partly because I could relate to most of the elements of young first love, but mainly because of a great job by the two talented actresses, and amazingly good production value given the budget. This is a strong C.

    Alias (2002) is a thriller made and set in Belgium. Two girlfriends are on holiday, and one of them (Hilde De Baerdemaeker as Eva) has a video camera. First, she manages to record two would-be car-jackers, then a woman (Els Van Peborgh) falling nude from an upper story window. We have already seen Peborgh stripping in the hotel room for Geert Hunaerts. The car jackers try to grab her camera, but are stopped by a good looking man (Geert Hunaerts), who instantly attracts Eva. Her girlfriend goes home, leaving her with the new guy. Things aren't that great between her and her boyfriend, and the new guy really has her attention.

    He ends up driving her home. Then her girlfriend has a look at the tape, and discovers that Hunaerts knew the girl. He shows up in town again on his yacht, but tells a rather convincing story to Eva and her friends, which includes the mental hospital his mothers is director of. Eva is satisfied, and returns to his yacht for a night of sex. Then the girlfriend sees him inside the room and near the window when the girl supposedly jumps out. From there, it is pretty much non-stop suspense until the end.

    Pebourgh does a beautiful full frontal in good light, and we see breasts from Baerdemaeker during her sex scene with Hunaerts, Hunaerts also does a full frontal. IMDb readers have this at 6.1 of 10, making it an ok entry into the thriller genre, which would be my assessment as well. It looked very good, and the Region one DVD sports an excellent Wide screen transfer, but mandatory subtitles. This is somewhere between a C and a C-. Part of my enjoyment probably had something to do with seeing landscapes and hearing languages not familiar to me, but it held my interest beginning to end.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)

    • Film nudity hall of famer Valeria Golino in The King's Whore. To my knowledge, this film has never made it to DVD. We need that! Not because the movie is so good, but because there are a few frames where the camera shot right up her coochie. (.jpg, .avi, .wmv)

    • Girlfriend to the stars. After years of relative obscurity, the new Peter Sellers biopic has lifted Britt into the news again. She's not happy with the project, nor with the casting of Charlize Theron in her role. Here's Britt in the cult classic, The Wicker Man. The breast are hers, the bum is a body double (the subject of a long explanation on the excellent DVD). (.avi, .wmv)

    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    • Cerina Vincent (who will always be remembered as Areola, the nude foreign exchange student from "Not Another Teen Movie"), topless in scenes from the horror/thriller film "Cabin Fever" (2002).

    • Marina Sirtis aka Star Trek's Counselor Troi. Here she is topless and getting felt up in "Death Wish 3" (1985). Fair warning, it was a rape scene.

    • Suzy Amis...aka Mrs. James Cameron. Here she is topless in scenes from "The Ballad of Little Jo" (1993).

    Be sure to pay Graphic Response a visit at his website.

    Crimson Ghost
    Today the Ghost takes a look at two adult actresses having some fun in the kitchen in scenes from "The Diner Party" (1994).

    Perhaps Martha Stewart should add a 'cooking with lesbians' segment to her show. Might help with the ratings.

    Tara Reid
    (1, 2)

    From the straight-to-vid movie that no one has ever heard of "Heaven's Pond" aka "Devil's Pond". Reid wears her usual short-shorts and white tank top, but only shows off some pokies and some downshirt views (#2 has the better 'exposure'). Ya know, for a girl like Tara, with no real acting abilitity to speak of, it makes no sense for her to stay dressed.

    Elizabeth Hurley
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24)

    Excellent 'caps by Watty of the Shagadelic Liz in scenes from "The Weight of Water".

    Here's the breakdown:
    Links 1-10...pokies and bikini cleavage views.
    Links 12-20...Liz topless.
    Links 22-24...rear bikini views.

    Rae Dawn Chong Brief breast exposure in a dark scene from the 1994 movie "Boulevard". It's not available on DVD, so a special thanks to DeVo for dusting off the VCR.

    Paz Vega
    (1, 2, 3)

    Marvin 'caps of the beautiful Spanish actress topless and showing some "fantasy bush" in scenes from the Pedro Almodóvar movie "Hable con ella" aka "Talk to Her" (2002).

    Rosanna Arquette
    (1, 2, 3)

    Joey House
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Eva Jenícková
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    Señor Skin takes a look at the 2001 flick, "Diary of a Sex Addict". All 3 show breast views (although Arquette keeps her bra on) and Eva Jenícková also gives us a thong view in link #7.

    The Earth Moved - The London Telegraph reports that Dr. Rachel Armstrong of the British Interplanetary Society said NASA is considering using chemical sterilization on astronauts during long missions that might include both sexes. NASA denied it, but other experts say they must consider how to prevent problems caused by astronauts who fall in love, have sex, break up and are stuck together in close quarters. Another expert suggested using a crew who were all over 50, adding that the ideal Mars crew, in "Star Trek" terms, would be two Mr. Scotts to do engineering, two Mr. Spocks for science, and no Captain Kirks, because all he does is give orders and kiss any woman in sight.

  • So I guess adding one Lt. Uhura is out of the question?
  • Two Mr. Scotts and two Mr. Spocks...Well, that should do away with the need for chemical sterilization.
  • Space capsules are so tight, astronauts are having sex even when they're not trying to.
  • They think a crew over 50 won't have affairs of the heart, just attacks of the heart.

    Low-Rent Singing - Good news, music lovers: the Spice Girls may reunite. Former Scary Spice Mel B. said their label is going to release a greatest hits album, and she hopes they'll regroup to promote it and cut a new song. Mel is currently appearing on Broadway in "Rent," and she says the "singing bit" is really hard, particularly certain notes and melodies. She said that when she was a Spice Girl, there were five girls, and if a note was too high, "someone else would sing it."

  • Really? I don't remember hearing that.
  • Not a Spice Girl, an actual singer.
  • She's the one pushing for a Spice Girls reunion...No wonder she's called "Scary."
  • We've got a Spice Girl singing on Broadway, P. Diddy "acting" on Broadway...When did Broadway become an entry level position?

    And The Baby Is The Mole! - ABC was hit with a tidal wave of complaints over a promo for a segment on tomorrow's "20/20." It's a Barbara Walters report about five couples competing to adopt a teenage mom's baby, but the promo made it look like a sensational new reality game show with some couples losing and the big winner taking home a baby. Adoption workers called it an "all-time low" in bad taste, and ABC quickly replaced it with a promo that treats the segment more as a documentary.

  • ...about five couples competing to adopt a teenage mom's baby.
  • They're not sure what to do now...That was going to be their next big reality show.
  • Viewers can phone in and vote on whether Omarosa gets to adopt the baby.
  • ABC insists that the only connection to a reality show is that the baby's father is nicknamed "The Bachelor."
