Kissing Jessica Stein

Kissing Jessica Stein is a romantic comedy with a twist. It stars Jennifer Westfeldt as Jessica , a successful but lonely young New Yorker who can’t seem to find the right someone. Every guy she has dated recently has turned out completely wrong for her. To make matters worse her mom who is worried that Jessica soon will be 30 and not married sets her up with guys based on their profession not compatibility.

As Jessica gets more and more frustrated she runs across a personal ad that she finds very appealing. However there is one problem. The ad is for “women seeking women” and Jessica so far has been straight. She decides anyway to go for it and ends up meeting Helen (Heather Juergensen), a woman who jumps at anything that appeals to her without putting much thought behind her impulses.

Jessica is the total opposite. She is hyper, nervous and second guesses herself all the time. Funny situations ensue as they start courting each other. Helen wants a full blown out love affair right away while Jessica wants to take it slow.

As their companionship evolves, Helen gets more and more frustrated at the lack of progress Jessica is making in the sack with her. Furthermore, Helen is upset that Jessica is embarrassed by their lesbian relationship and keeps it a secret from her friends and family.

It seems that Jessica loves the intimate friendship and fun they share but is uneasy at fulfilling the sexual aspects of their relationship. In the meantime, Josh Meyers (Scott Cohen), her old flame has got the hots for her again. This puts pressure on Jessica to decide if she is gay, bi or straight.

What’s a girl to do? Well if you are Jessica you fumble through comical uneasy experiences trying to figure out who you really are and what you heart truly desires.

Co-written by Jennifer and Heather, this film is a sharp and amusing look at the single scene and the search for true love through the eyes of a neurotic but sweet upper mobile woman.

Director Charles Herman-Wurmfeld poignantly lets Jennifer and Heather shine as he skillfully moves the story along to its surprising ending.

If you are looking for a sophisticated, witty film that takes a strange turn exploring romance then Kissing Jessica Stein will provide you with a belly full of laughs.

This film works both as a date flick or just as clever entertainment while providing a breath of fresh air from the mundane.

So if you are ready to let it all hang out then Kissing Jessica Stein is the film for you.
