Kissing Jessica Stien

A Film Review By Jason L. King

Starring: Jennifer Westfeldt, Heather Juergensen
Directed By: Charles Herman-Wurmfeld
Rated: Rated R for sexual content and language

Final Grade:

Jessica Stein has it all. A fast paced career, a fast paced life, and the money to support her. But what she doesn’t have is love. Every past romance has been a disaster. But when she stumbles across a personal ad, her life is changed forever. She meets Helen a girl who fulfills all her dreams. The only problem is that can she admit to her family and friends that she is in a lesbian relationship?

Cute, adorable, light hearted and humorous. I enjoyed Kissing Jessica Stein. Some people are turned off by the idea of Lesbian love, but this movie is making a subtle statement. It shows us that there is more to a relationship than sex, and happiness can come from spending time with someone you love regaurdless of their sex. Think of Kissing Jessica Stein as the “Bridget Jones” of lesbianism. Filled with some wit and humor the movie focused on finding the lighter side of the situation, which was well done for such touchy subject matter. Jessica, (Jennifer Westfeldt) was a convincing character, as well as her supporting cast. I really can’t complain about this movie at all. I went looking for a decent romantic comedy, and thats exactly what I got, if not more.

I enjoyed the movie enough to tell you to go check it out. The movie is well worth your time. Sure, some people might be offended by the idea of lesbianism, and other people might be turned on. (Just for the record guys, there is NO nudity) Never the less it’s a great film. if you get the chance, head to Varsity theaters in Ames and figure out why everyone wants to be “Kissing Jessica Stein.”

One thought on “Kissing Jessica Stien

  1. I want desperatley to tell off the nurse who never helps and cpiloamns when I ask where is a bed pan? when none is to be found!!! Or throws pen down when I ask if there are any urinals when a five hundred LB man needs to go and I’v looked everywhere else!!! No one wants to help, but oh boy you better help them out, and little things I’m finding out I wasn’t learned in training on like if a person doesn’t show up on one hall it’s a 2/3 or what the heck ever!!! Something about lengthening your hall and no one tells me the rooms to take they just take over some of mine and say it’s a two to three OMG I’m going so crazy here. No supplies, nothing the other CNA is all experienced and acts like she is so great, so do the nurses That if you ask a nurse for help it’s always ask your CNA WTF MY FREAKNG CNA IS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND I’V GOT CALL LIGHTS GOING OFF AND HER LIGHTS ARE GOING OFF YEAH, SHE’S SOMEWHERE BUT THE FOOD TRAYS NEED TO BE PUT AWAY NO YOU MOTHER FREAKING PIG I DON’T KNOW WHO STOLE YOUR MOTHERS BED PAD ALARM, WHY IT DIDN’T GO OFF IS BEYOND ME WHEN I CAME IN SHE WAS FREAKING ASLEEP!!!!! I CANNOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. ON TOP OF THIS THERE ARE SHOWERS ON OTHER HALLS TO DO, I DO NOT HAVE ANY TIME FOR THIS!!!! I’M SOOOO DAMNED DEPRESSED ABOUT IT ALL. I DREAD GOING TO WORK FROM 3 TO 11PM OMG THE STRESS IS KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!
