  • Andreas, working from Jesse Archer's reductive script, knows how to pump energy into tired ideas and turn twinkly stereotypes into high-camp icons.

  • If you're paying attention, you won't be able to ignore the scattershot plotting, the synthetic emotions, the highly variable quality of the acting and the woodenness of Jesse Archer's script when it isn't dealing in one-liners.

  • It's hard to swallow such a dubious message when it's made via schematic, preposterous plotting that stacks the deck in favor of its protagonists' happily-ever-afters.

  • ... the road to love is strewn with one-liners and musical interludes, as least if you're seeking it in a Casper Andreas (A Four Letter World, The Big Gay Musical) film.

  • Chock full of relatable, well-drawn characters, razor-sharp dialogue and witty observations...(Mindy) Cohn's performance and those of the supporting cast are great.

  • Violet Tendencies betrays both its camp roots and its grown-up goals.

    This movie did a good job of pairing realistic characters and conflicts with a handful of sexy fun. At first glance this movie is quite standard, but at it's core, I think there are good messages in it. Some things were almost too perfect (you know, the whole "everyone is happy in the end" bit), but that's not that bad a thing - though it may not be entirely realistic. I did enjoy watching this, but probably won't watch it again. It just wasnt that memorable or special. Still, I liked the story - and totally related to the main character - so that was a plus. No major complaints. If you watch the trailer and think it looks good, then watch it, you'll probably enjoy it to some extent. But obviously, it's not for everyone. What did this movie teach me? I need to find me a unicorn!!!
