  1. 100
    Delightfully unpredictable, hilarious comedy with wonderful performances that tug at your heart in ways that utterly transcend gender labels.
  2. For an American film it is a groundbreaker in exploring the realm of sexual fluidity, and it does so with wit, wisdom and in a completely entertaining fashion.

    An edgy exploration of role playing and sexual choice in a climate where all options are acceptable.
  4. It's funny and human and really pretty damned wonderful, all at once.
  5. 88
    Delivers that rare combination of winning traits. It's a low-key comedy with a risque hook -- a seemingly straight woman dabbles in lesbianism -- yet it maintains an old-fashioned faith in literate dialogue, believable behavior and themes that reach beyond the plot points.
  6. A pitch-perfect gem.
  7. 88
    The screenplay is written with a thinking audience in mind, the dialogue sparkles, the characters leap off the screen in full three-dimensionality, and the cliches are kept to a bare minimum.
  8. 88
    This movie is about the survival of the open-minded. As far as current American independents go, it's the fastest and the funniest.
