★★★★ review by Lucy on Letterboxd
both judy greer and natasha lyonne have deserved leading roles like this for about 15 years now so i'm satisfied
also: natasha's love interest was aubrey plaza. i'm glad we live in a universe where that happened and i feel bad for the universes where it didn't

★★★½ review by beca on Letterboxd
I can't believe I have been so #blessed this weekend... last night I watched the Watch What Happens Live from Thursday where Aubrey admitted to having been with a woman/women before and today I accidentally clicked the 'movies' tab instead of the 'queue' tab and saw this movie I've been looking for a stream or DVD of for close to a year.
In case you're unaware... Natasha Lyonne and Aubrey Plaza are girlfriends in this movie and every time they were on screen I screamed internally for about nine years. THEY'RE!! SO!!! CUTE!!! I love Kelly and I love this blessing of a movie. I need more.
Thanks God... Thanks Hulu... Thanks Jamie Babbit... you're the real MVPs...
Fred Armisen and his character's wife were also good and funny.

Pride Month Gay-athon 2018 #3
Okay okay, so while this was recommended to me under the LGBT section on Hulu, the gay stuff is really like the C plot here. But that’s fine!!! In fact, it’s good. Not every movie with queer protagonists needs to primarily focus on a queer love story or their oppression or that kinda thing. Movies where characters just ARE queer that focus primarily on some other plot are fine. This was at its core a movie about two sisters, and one of those sisters happened to be gay and had a small romantic C plot that takes up very little of the movie. Still counts.
This is no masterpiece, and honestly I’d have trouble actually reccomending this to anyone as a “good” movie. But I did thoroughly enjoy myself and I laughed a lot. I felt bad about laughing at a lot of the jokes, and this movie certainly has a problematic side, but it’s still pretty darn funny. And it’s sometimes pretty sweet. Sometimes it’s a bit corny, other times a bit dumb, and it doesn’t always all flow together perfectly, but it’s a good time nonetheless. I enjoyed it anyway.
