That's What She Said Reviews
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.
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.

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.
