Movie Info

A woman negotiates the tricky etiquette of celebrating the wedding of her former girlfriend in this independent comedy. April (Maria Cina) and Alex (Trish Doolan) are close friends who have something of a past together -- both are lesbians, and they were lovers for several years. Alex is still attracted to April, but April has moved on -- so much so that April one day announces that she's going to marry Pauly (Randall Batinkoff), a pleasant but dull man who was introduced to April by her mother (Molly Cheek). Understandably, Alex is a bit taken aback when April asks her to be her maid of honor, but for the sake of their friendship she accepts. However, things get a bit frazzled when Alex has to put together a bridal shower for the woman she still loves. April's Shower was the first feature film from writer and director Trish Doolan, who also plays Alex.

  • The film has a pleasant spirit and lively dialogue, and what's more, seems to be coming from a specific cultural and geographical location.

    January 13, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise, taking 45 yawn-filled minutes to introduce its collection of severely stereotyped characters, whose conflicts then play out in excruciatingly predictable fashion.

    January 13, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • If there is a single phrase that should strike fear in the hearts of innocent moviegoers, it is 'writer-director- producer-star.'

    January 13, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A lighthearted comedy about the outing of a bride-to-be and her five-year relationship with her maid of honor.

    January 12, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Suffers from a malady common to tiny indies of the let's-put-on-a-show variety -- it strains for irrepressibly nutty, but lands squarely in annoying.
