Didi: I'm from all over. I'm an Army brat.
Marty Barnes: Army brat. That is intense. Tell us about it.
Didi: Well, I lived with my Dad on U.S. Army bases in Texas, Kentucky and elsewhere until I was 14. And then out of nowhere I met my Mom again. My parents got divorced when I was only a baby.

A guy's story of lesbianism.
20 July 2000 | by memfreeSee all my reviews

Concept: Husband wants wife to sleep with another woman (in a 3 way), but doesn't know what to do when she starts liking the idea. This movie has a strong 'be careful what you wish for' tone and moral. The husband is the main character, and the camera follows him everywhere. Even the sex scenes occur off screen; as the viewer is lead into the kitchen after the the all-important man.

Since this is a comedy, it can be forgiven for being completely out of touch with the feminine side. The film has every right to make fun of the male predicament. Maybe someone else wants to watch this, but I'd be immensely more interested in a story that had the same sort of wit, but showed how a female misunderstood the other sex, and had the camera following *her* around.
