Movie Info

Bebe (Marcia DeBonis) is getting ready for the most romantic encounter of her life, and she needs her best friend Dee Dee (Anne Heche) to cheer her on. Too bad Dee Dee is so cynical about dating that she shows up three hours late only to spew cigarette smoke and bitterness all over the morning coffee. And too bad Clementine, a train wreck of a stranger (Alia Shawkat,) has decided to invade their day with non-stoptalk about her nymphomaniac escapades. Looking to turn the day around, this fearsome threesome embark on a day of misadventure that only New York City can offer. That's What She Said is a quirky and honest look at friendship in the face of adversity, asking one of life's great questions: why does it always have to be so hard?

Critic Reviews for That's What She Said

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

It's all directed - and played - at fever pitch with an egregious disregard for real-world comportment.

Top Critic

Problems ensue, all tedious, save Bebe's all-day struggle with a yeast infection, which is gross.

New York Post
Top Critic

"That's What She Said," an unpleasant comedy about friendship, aims to be a female twist on the bromance.

The road to hell is paved not just with good intentions, but with movies that attempt to capture the way women really talk.

Top Critic

If you see just one repellent femme-owned-and-operated comedy about unpleasant women and a stubborn case of vaginal yeast infection, you might as well make it That's What She Said, since I hope there'll never be another like it.

It's nice to see women, particularly ones as talented as the aforementioned trio, take center stage in a comedy; it's frustrating, however, when all they get to do is complain about guys who are totally absent from the film.

Audience Reviews for That's What She Said

On the run from her ex who might have walked back into her life wearing the custom made pink and black wingtips she once bought him, Dee Dee(Anne Heche) seeks shelter with her friend Bebe(Marcia DeBonis) in a coffee shop. And then is taken aback when it turns out that Bebe who recently got fired for sheltering a homeless man in a supply closet at work has welcomed Clementine(Alia Shawkat) who feels guilty for nearly killing her boyfriend through an allergic reaction in oral sex into their company. The resulting argument gets them evicted out onto the street where they now have the challenge of hailing a cab in the rain in New York City. Surprisingly enough for a movie that has a yeast infection as a major plot point, "That's What She Said" is actually not bad with a cool performance from Anne Heche as someone with barely one or two positive traits. That's because despite all the vulgarity, there is still enough here to amuse in breezy fashion in its take on female friendship without any male voices to distract. Plus, I have to appreciate any movie where the characters ride the subway, much less able to have an orgasm on one.

Maeby from Arrested Development was in this movie. *sigh* There were no redeeming qualities to this movie. It's overly trashy, overly indulgent, and it tries to fool it's audience into thinking into its a genuine heartfelt movie, but it's just not. It has a really crappy ending too, one of those "yeah remember that thing, that one conflict we promised we would resolve by the end of the movie yeah that's not gonna happen we're just gonna end it right here yeahcoolokbye" I think I laughed once at something. Oh yeah I fell asleep for like 5 minutes(my cousin said it was that long) and when I woke up Maeby from AD was humping an old guy or something. This was the moment when I asked myself "why am I watching this poop..." Ok rant over. 0 out of 10 ZERO.

I can always tell via a trailer if a movie is going to be good or bad and the trailer for That's What She Said, was good. I stopped the trailer midway through because I didn't want to spoil any of the comedic parts. I should of kept watching. In a nut shell the above synopsis is exactly what the movie is. Bebe (Marica DeBonis) befriends Clementine (Alia Shawkat) in a coffee shop while waiting for DeeDee (Anne Heche) to arrive and from there we are taken on a slow goose chase around the city. They hop around from one setting to the next constantly bickering with each other. Anne Heche does a phenomenal job of playing the dirty, foul "I don't give a shit" character, while Marcia DeBonis is so sweet you want to give her a punch in the face. As much as I love Alia Shawkat I felt she was out of place in this film. She does a good job of being the sex-crazed addict that her character is, but her chemistry with the other two characters never turned on. The language can sometimes be foul and the situations were over the top but there is genuine comedy in this movie, just not as much as I was expecting.
