Better Than Chocolate is a lesbian love story. Walking home from an evening at the lesbian club 'Cat's Ass,' Maggie is confronted by a gang of skinheads. Suddenly a minibus comes to a screeching halt and out jumps Kim. The skins move on, and Maggie thanks Kim, who watches her go. This is their first meeting. Maggie has recently dropped out of law school and now works in a women's shop. To avoid a confrontation with her mother, she makes up a success story and tells her that she's living in a beautiful apartment. As her mother is having her difficulties with her second husband, she decides to take her young son and come to live with Maggie for a while. Meanwhile, Maggie is housesitting the apartment of a female performer on tour. As fate might have it, she runs across Kim again and they find themselves at the new apartment making love in the shower -- at which moment Maggie's mother and little brother step in. The film was screened as part of the Panorama section of the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, All Movie Guide

which would normally elicit a rating of 10 stars from me. But the writing was silly and sophomoric and the acting was just okay when it wasn't just plain bad. Still it was kinda cute (so were the girls) and goofy and sweet and it left me with a smile and then it really left me with a smile.

This film is so forgettable -- I made the mistake of renting it again. And again. I tried watching it again, but really, never again. Completely unwatchable. It's gotta be one of the worst films ever made.

Transgender, Genderqueer & Gender-Bending Films
Some of these are films about women or men who just happen to be transsexual. Others are ludicrous gender-bending comedies. Some are sad, some are moving... some are unrealistic and offensive. All of them deal with gender in a way that most movies don't.
