Girl Play is a vivacious romantic comedy that is told through a series of humorous flashbacks. The story revolves around Robin Greenspan, who is essentially "married" to her girlfriend, and Lacie Harmon, whose relationships don't seem to last past one night of passionate sex. They meet when they are cast to play lesbian lovers in a Los Angeles stage play. Innocently, flamboyant stage director Gabriel directs the actresses through a series of rehearsals designed to "bring out the intimacy" in each performer. The two women find themselves increasingly and undeniably attracted to each other, and overcome with desire. They must ask themselves whether this relationship is manufactured for the sake of the "girl play", or if it genuinely is true love. What follows is their personal journey to come to terms with their passionate feelings for each other and the life-altering choices they face.

This film is an absolute gem, completely unforgettable, and is so relevant to relationships today. It is a true love story, showing how the friendship, that leads to love and passion, develops between two women. Not to mention how it affects the people around them.

Not only that, the leading actors, Robin Greenspan & Lacie Harmon are completely compelling, believable, and ultimately true to themselves, given that it is their own relationship suddenly on view to the entire world. It is a work of art, and gives an emotional insight into real relationships, that is sadly lacking in a lot of movies of our time.

Not to mention the humour - particularly with the director of the play, excellently acted by Dom Deluise, and, without fault, the wonderful Mink Stole, who plays Robin's mother.

Finally, the casting, acting, and producing are all spot-on, and I cannot praise this film highly enough. As is said by those who worked on this film (in the extras) it is a universal film about love, whether you are gay or heterosexual, everyone will identify with Girl Play because it is ultimately about love, and love alone.

I sincerely would like to know what the reviewers who gave this film 5 stars were smoking when they watched it!

In this film, the two main characters speak to the camera and explain the story in flashbacks. This concept could be OK if it was not so heavily used and combined with poor acting. Characters are cardboard like, the gay director conforms to all the clichés you can think of, complete with camp younger boyfriend , etc...

I could not watch this until the end it was so bad. If you have no tolerance for poorly acted zero-budget american movies who only makes it through production because they have a lesbian theme (breadcrumb theory, anyone?), then avoid!

Girl Play is a beautiful tale, simply told. the fact that the two leads are telling their story gives the film an honesty and a reality . the acting or narration is sometimes a little stilted but throughout the piece the honesty shines through. its a tale of love and how two people found each other.

This movie is basically about two women discussing their life together from the first time they met. The Narrator covers the flash backs which happen constantly during the entire movie. I found this to be a loooong tedious movie with no structure or form. The acting also appeared to be inferior. I did not enjoy this movie at all.

This film will make you think and make you laugh, its a true story and its worth watching the extras - not a typical love story as such but very watchable and romantic in its own way. The lead characters are very believable and draw you into their worlds and its a great story. Buy it, watch it with your partner and feel good!

I didn't even bother to watch the whole of this movie as it really was that bad. I felt ripped off after buying it. A typical low-budget film with no substance what so ever. I would sooner watch a video of paint drying on Youtube!!! Boring, awful & pointless.......

I had high hopes and then after watching 10mins of this I lowered my hopes...and then lowered them so more. Even then this still disappointed me.

Bad acting. Badly filmed. Bad script. Bad delivery. Bad chemistry. Pick a word and put BAD in front of it.

There are plenty of GOOD lesbian films out there and this is not one of them.
