Movie Info

This endearing romantic comedy about two high school girls, blue collar tomboy Randy (Laurel Holloman) and privileged, popular Evie (Nicole Ari Parker), was the first mainstream success for director Maria Maggenti, who chronicles the odd couple's relationship from tentative first steps to full-blossoming romance. Cast almost entirely with newcomers, The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love brings Randy's family (a lesbian aunt and an assortment of current and past partners), Evie's well-heeled and overprotective mother (Stephanie Barry), and a collection of friends, enemies, one ex-boyfriend (Andrew Wright), and one unsatisfactory affair (Maggie Moore) into the mix, balancing the excitement and passion of adolescent romance with the pitfalls of social and familial rejection. Maintains a light and quirky tone throughout, reminiscent in many ways of the teen comedies of John Hughes.

Less incredible than interminable.

The clunking title of The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love tells you all you need to know about the plot, though there is a genuine sweetness to this perky tale of high school romance.

Only holds the interest above a sea of other bland teen romantic comedies for the girl-girl titillation factor - and only just barely

One of the best films ive ever seen. A classic love story well written and well acted. Touches the heart and makes you realize that everyone falls in love and hurts at the end.

Movie about a relationship between classmates (happens to be lesbian). The ending is just too corny.
