| An interesting but silly attempt
As the plot outline states -- parenthesis-enclosed statements are mine -- "A weatherman (played by James Bonn) suspects his girlfriend (Randi Rage) is cheating. A lesbian (Alyssa Love) suspects her lover (Janine Lindemulder) is cheating. And in their ensuing adventures, guess who they find: Each other." Except that it's not quite that simple.

For starters, while we see Alyssa Love's character Ruth exchange a few kisses with Janine (playing a character of the same name) we don't actually ever see her have sex with another woman. Both her scenes are with guys -- first a tattoo artist, when she thinks Janine is making eye contact with the girl that said artist is working on, and then James Bonn's character. So a lesbian? Not so much.

Shot very much on the cheap -- while Janine and Randi Rage's character supposedly have three separate encounters over the course of the film's events, the latter two just use the same footage as the first, sometimes at different angles -- this film had the potential to be a genuine "adult romance", but it's squandered. It's possible that the full cut of the film (of which I've only seen the shorter, 71 minute DVD release) manages to have more storyline, explain why we should care that these people are in this situation, but I'm not optimistic.
