It's in the Water Reviews

    Funny, silly, charming movie that reminded me of But I'm a Cheerleader in tone -- all of the gay characters were lovely and multi-dimensional, while the straight characters were caricatures. Because of this, it wasn't believable, but that's what made it fun. I always enjoy seeing over-the-top society ladies being knocked down a peg or two.

    I'm totally in love with this movie. Sure, at first it's hard to get over its cheap soft porn/soap opera-kind of look and the acting makes you cringe at first. But then I fell for it. It's sappy and over-the-top and cheap and it's fun and heartwarming and sexy. It's not trying to take itself seriously and that's how it actually does manage to get out a serious message while being lightheartedly entertaining.

    Well it was awful! But I actually loved the story between the two women and found that uber-hot Keri Jo Chapman's acting was actually pretty good compared to the dire attempts of pretty much everybody else in it! Although it's wonderful when a heart wrenching, fantastically acted classic such as Aimee and Jaguar comes along, I think that most of us would admit that what we want from our gay films is a good helping of angst, soul-searching and longing gazes before THE MOMENT OF REALISATION where Hot Lady (or Fella) One softly smooches Hot Lady (or Fella) Two, inevitably after an argument about why they 'can't do this'. After this there should be a generous splash of passionate kissing and rolling in bed scenes, topped off with the inevitable run-off-into-the-sunset, gay-power ending. IITW gives exactly that. Two amusing things of note about this film. Alex's homophobic mum's facial expressions are something else and borderline offensive... and big LOLLING at the outfit they put Alex in once she was an out and proud dyke. High waisted beige pants, lilac shirts and 90s-esque ties will definitely be the theme for a future party at my house!

    Pretty good story line, even watching it a second time didn't bore me, it was kind of exciting to watch.

    It's in the water and it turns you gay. It's In The Water is a vehicle for satirizing stereotypical attitudes held by and about straights and gays alike. It's kind of slow, yet has its moments.

    I was hoping for an offbeat, tongue in cheek sci-fi flick but this degenerated into a very pedestrian and familiar survey of straight attitudes about gays. Not at all groundbreaking nor very interesting. Only mildly humorous.
