In the 70's, there were few people as beautiful as Meg Foster and Perry King. The idea of them having sex and falling in love isn't terribly far fetched. The issue in A Different Story is that they both happen to be gay and have a one-time drunken fling and then Foster's character gets pregnant.
It seems more like the concept of a wacky comedy, but A Different Story plays it fairly (pardon the pun) straight throughout. It's completely unrealistic and even quite offensive, but Foster and King manage to make it seem entirely plausible. I actually found Foster's former lover so much more offensive with her creepy bipolar personality. At least Foster and King's gay characters were shown as decent, stable human beings.
I'm surprised that I wasn't more offended by this movie, but it's really enjoyable and sort of charming and sweet.
