Kissing Jessica Stein: 3 out of 5. it had a good plot but it wasn't very exciting

Better Than Chocolate: 3 out of 5. i liked the characters and what happened to them. it had a good ending.

All Over Me: 2 out of 5. boring.

High Art: 2 out of 5. bad ending.

Imagine Me and You: 5 out of 5. best lesbian movie ever. i loved the two actresses in this movie.

Gray Matters: 4 out of 5. it was cute. i liked the plot and the two lead actresses.

Something About Jane: 1 out of 5. corniest movie ever. also prolly had the lowest budget for any kind of movie.

Love and Suicide: 1 out of 5. pretty much for the same reasons as Something about Jane.

that's all for now. i do have a couple more movies i'm getting from netflix soon so i'll be sure and review those too. for all of those who care.

i've seen Kissing Jessica Stein, High Art, and Better Than Chocolate.
I would have to say that Better than Chocolate was the most entertaining of the three. Jessica Stein had really weak chemistry between the 2 main actresses, and High Art moved very slow and was really depressing.
here are some othe lesbian movies i have seen which i would recommend to you: Chutney Popcorn [or it might be called Popcorn Chutney, i can't remember], But I'm a Cheerleader, The Sex Monster, Lost and Delirious, Fire, and My Mother Likes Women [spanish movie].

Yay! I was just going to research a good movie to watch over the weekend. Your list will be very helpful. : )

I actually really liked Kissing Jessica Stein. I didn't really have a problem with the actors, and I thought it was done in a realistic way - like people are sometimes scared to make gay/lesbian relationships anything less than perfect for fear of seeming non-supportive or something, but I thought it seemed real-lifeish. I'd recommend it.

I thought Better Than Chocolate was really good, too. Definitely a classic and worth watching.

And I just last week watched But I'm a Cheerleader, and I guess it just wasn't my thing. I almost stopped watching halfway through... the only thing that kept me watching was how blatantly stereotypical and predictable the characters were - it was almost satirical and so kind of interesting...

Aside from mentioning that good lesbian movies have less importance once you start having a lesbian life of your own (have to get that in there, since watching lesbian movies doesn't speed the coming out process, just more delay... come out!), I recall the incredible adventure of 2 girls in love being sort of billed as the lesbian version of beautiful thing (at the time anyway, not sure if it holds up. Beautiful Thing does).
