Critic Reviews for Different for Girls
Toplined by handsome Brit thesp Rupert Graves, offbeat serio comedy concerns the evolving friendhsip and eventual love between a rambunctious macho and a quiet insecure transsexual.
The story has a TV movie shorthand calculation and slightness.
Outstanding performances help this provocative British drama seem to tally up to something that is greater than its individual parts. But parts alone do not a solid movie make.
This would be infinitely more likeable if it wasn't for some irritatingly unreal plot development.
Audience Reviews for Different for Girls
Overall, this movie was ok. I never entirely bought Kim as a woman however. It just seemed like two dudes in a gay relationship, which was fine. My biggest problem with the film is one of expectation, I think. I expected better. While this movie didn't put me to sleep, the plodding story ultimately leaves you feeling like you could have done something better with the movie's running time of 96 minutes. Just sayin..
Sweet and funny.
Hmmm....I could have sworn I rated this before. Oh well. Good movie. Good story plot.
