Sweet comedy about when a girl meets girl.

Charles Herman-Wurmfeld's comedy remains the best film spawned by "Sex and the City." This sharp-tongued story about emotional curiosity and the politics of passion draws on the words of a dead Austrian poet to muse about modern romance.

What neither the trailers nor the newspaper features written about Kissing Jessica Stein will have prepared you for is quite how funny it is.

The cast is wonderful and the story is commendably free of the sectarian us-versus-them tone of many romantic gay movies.

Director Charles Herman-Wurmfeld's movie knows what it wants, what its limits are, and delivers its delights accordingly.

It's the best kind of chick-flick, fun and intelligent without being pandering.

Westfeldt and Juergensen's wordy script tries for both mainstream and offbeat, but gets lost in between.
Alex Nohe
Film Threat
December 6, 2005
Three years of writing, rehearsing, and performing Jessica together helped develop the film organically for Westfeldt and Juergensen.

Esta baboseira com pretensões intelectuais possui um roteiro (escrito pelas duas protagonistas) cheio de absurdos e um vocabulário rebuscado que denuncia sua própria arrogância.
| Original Score: 2/5

I'd be interested to see these women star in another movie, but I'm not crossing my fingers that they write another one.

Venturesome yet unthreatening, this movie is box-office smart enough to seem cutting-edge without ever drawing blood.

Smart and sassy, Kissing Jessica Stein is a warm and playful romantic comedy where sexuality plays as large a role as any leading character.
Matthew Turner
October 30, 2002
Enjoyable, New York-set 'bi-try' romantic comedy with a sharp script and sweet performances by its two leads.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

'Divertida, enternecedora, universal y profundamente sincera, es una de las mejores comedias románticas en mucho tiempo. Una verdadera delicia.'
