OMG … that’s the quickest way to start when it comes to a description of writer, director and star Michelle Ehlen's Hetrosexual Jill. With tongue firmly planted-in-cheek, and yet not afraid to cut loose with some out-and-out slapstick humor, she serves up one perfectly-pitched and very outrageous “romantic comedy.”
Hetrosexual Jill will be making its DVD bow on Oct. 28 courtesy of Ariztical Entertainment.
Jill (Jen McPherson) is in a support group for “ex-lesbians” and as sort of a final test to see if the “cure” for such desires has taken hold she turns to her former partner, Jamie (Ehlen), to see if she can weather her super-butch storm. Of course it all goes sideways … and hilariously so.
There are sight gags, there’s stand-up (if Michelle Ehlen ever tires of acting or filmmaking she’s an absolute natural in her comedic timing … there’s a career waiting in stand up) and her actors play it all to the hilt, with kudos to McPherson for being both funny, sexy and the perfect foil (her timing is always right there).
And, as a bonus, Ehlen gives plenty of screen time to Keye Chen who delivers a rat-a-tat-tat style of comedy that is both infectious and spot-on funny. It doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight … a funny film is a funny film and that’s exactly what Hetrosexual Jill is in spades!
