Movie Info

She's Manhattan's most fabulous fruit fly! At 40, Violet is the racy, fun-loving belle of the ball. She spends her nights as royalty, but when the party ends, she always heads home alone. While her co-worker Riley struggles with his boyfriend Markus going baby-crazy, and her roommate Luke tackles monogo-mania, Violet's romantic life is one big bellyflop. Realizing she's at a certain age and still single, Violet is at a crossroads. In the fast pace of high fashion PR where she works, Riley tells her to seek out a straight male version of herself -- the mythical fag stag. But glamorous guru Salome gives her other advice; To nab a man, she insists, Violet must abandon her gay boys. When Violet arrives home from yet another disastrous date to find Luke has organized a gay sex party in her bedroom, she decides Salome may be right. In order to get a prized man of her own, Violet strikes out on a hilarious quest to change the woman she is. Chasing love and lust at all costs, she may find them in the most unlikely of a straight boyfriend. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Violet Tendencies

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

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.
