The Princess and Her Pirate
Everytime I watch movie and there's a gay character in it, I end up groaning, fully disappointed. Usually the gay character is either just 'passing by' (ex. Legally Blonde, Under The Tuscan Sun, Miss Congeniality), as a villain or as a bad person (ex. Legally Blonde, Eurotrip, Gia, Monster), the gay character is actually not gay at all (ex. Kissing Jessica Stein, Mean Girls), they die in the end - and not a pretty death it was (ex. Monster, Gia), the gay thing is just added to make the story (ex. Bend It Like Beckham)... well, to summon it up, usually in the movies which have gay character in them, I've never seen the gay character to have a happy ending (as in 'they live happily ever after') with someone they love. Maybe there're actually movies with gay character which happy ending like this movie I've just watched recently, but they never reach my area. At least not yet. Fortunately this movie does reach my area. D.E.B.S.
When I rented this movie, I expected nothing. I just saw the movie in the site 'Dyke Drama' and I thought, 'What the heck, I'll watch it'. But the story grew more than I've ever expected! There's no coming out story, there's no dealing with sexual orientation, there's no drugs involved, there's no... nothing! There're just two people falling in love with each other. That's is. Two people who just happen to be both women. And the conflict isn't even because they're both women, but because they belong to two parties who are opposites: villain and cop. The story would be just the same if the two characters are of the opposite sex. And that's why I love the movie. It shows us that the love between two women is just as simple, as pure, as sweet, and as cute as a love between woman and man can be. It's just a love story.
Really, for those who think that love is just a simple thing and should be cherished for just what it is, you should watch this movie. I bet you'll smile to yourself in the end. It's so simple! Just like Romeo and Juliet (in this case, Juliet and Juliet) with happy ending. Heh heh heh. Because in this movie Lucy wants to be a pirate and Amy is the 'miss perfect' who could always have whatever she wants, I give the movie a new title: 'The Princess and Her Pirate'.
I'm so glad I ran into this movie. Finally after watching a movie with gay characters in it, I can smile.
