"The Incredibly Luscious Cans of Nicole Ari Parker"
3 stars

As far as teen romantic comedies goes, there is nothing unique at all about INCREDIBLY TRUE ADVENTURE OF TWO GIRLS IN LOVE, plot wise - except for the fact that the star-crossed lovers are both female. While it is cute and funny in places, it is thoroughly banal - except for when Nicole Ari Parker decides to get her bi-curious freak on.

Seeing Oz's review reminded me of the first and only time I saw this when it premiered at the Sundance festival. I had to see 7 festival entries for a film studies class at the time, and with 4 films to go and only 3 days left in the festival, pickins were slim. I was lucky to get tickets even for this piece of fluff. A friend was supposed to go with me so I didn't look like a perv, but she dogged me at the last minute, and I ended up freezing my ass off outside of a Park City theater, standing in a line full of man-hatin' lesbians to see this. I kid you not, I was the only guy there, and getting dirty looks to boot. I'm surprised I walked out with my testicles in place.

The story is your basic pretty rich girl falls in love with boy from the wrong side of the tracks affair - only the twist is the rich girl is black, and the poor boy is . . . not (a boy, that is). The white-trizash rug muncher, "Randy", (Laurel Holloman) finds herself smitten when Evie (Nicole Ari Parker), a gorgeous and popular girl from her high school, pulls into the gas station where Randy works.

The rest of the film is basically the two girls falling in love (as the title would imply) while trying to keep their relationship a secret from their respective parents, who will freak out if they find out their daughter is going out with a straight girl/white lesbian.

The two leads are enjoyable, and there are some funny moments, most of them provided by Dale Dickey as "Regina", Randy's femme sidekick. Regina basically comes off like a flamboyantly gay Wierd Al Yankovich, and gives some of the best laughs when being ganged up on and interrogated by the girls' parents when the lovestruck teens go missing.

But where the film really pays off is in the various macking scenes between the girls, culminating in a nice nude scene for Nicole Ari (including a brief but enjoyable nipple-suck by Holloman).

Drive-in Triple Feature I Need Lesbo Action But There's No Adult Section at the Blockbuster Picks for Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love:

But I'm A Cheereleader: Another cute, fluffy, stereotypical gay teen romantic comedy. Cheerleader falls for a Goth Girl at a camp that their parents have sent them to in order to cure them of "The Gay." No nipple-sucking, but some nice girl-girl macking, some funny scenes, and Richard Moll as the gay militant leader of a house for wayward homosexual boys.

Wild Side: HOT lesbo action between Joan Chen and Anne Heche (before she rode Ellen's gravy train - and face). Also Christopher Walken phoning it in as a volatile mobster (but Walken is enjoyable even at his most mediocre).

Acceptable Substitution: Mulholland Drive - In the midst of David Lynch's insanity is the hottest non-porno Lesbian scene since Bound

Only holds the interest above a sea of other bland teen romantic comedies for the girl-girl titillation factor - and only just barely.
