The story has a TV movie shorthand calculation and slightness.

One of the reasons why Different for Girls works is because of the caliber of acting.

There are all kinds of love relationships in this world, and perhaps they all deserve a romantic comedy this unflinching and this sensitive.

This irrepressible and sensitive romance brings new flavor to the term odd couple.

Audience Reviews for Different for Girls

½

Overall, this movie was ok. I never entirely bought Kim as a woman however. It just seemed like two dudes in a gay relationship, which was fine. My biggest problem with the film is one of expectation, I think. I expected better. While this movie didn't put me to sleep, the plodding story ultimately leaves you feeling like you could have done something better with the movie's running time of 96 minutes. Just sayin..
