(AB, Ho, SS, NN) Anti-biblical, homosexual worldview featuring lesbianism as acceptable way of life; strong sexual focus -- adultery, promiscuity & sexual immorality depicted; and, partial & brief nudity.

Summary:

Despite wit and humor, BAR GIRLS merely illustrates the loneliness of the lesbian lifestyle and portrays love as a superficial, sexual, self-gratifying emotion with little commitment. The movie features a strong sexual focus, depicting adultery, promiscuity and homosexuality.

Review:

BAR GIRLS takes us into the world of lesbianism and the age-old quest for love and relationships. The story centers around Loretta, played by Nancy Wilson Wolfe, who on the verge of breaking up with her old love finds a new one in Rachel, played by Liza D'Agostino. Their relationship takes off, but trouble arises when a newcomer at the Girl Bar -- the night spot in which the girls hang out -- is attracted to Rachel, creating a crisis in their relationship. Other lesbian couples form and separate, changing partners as quickly as they change drinks.

Based on the stage play, BAR GIRLS attempts to depict the trials and triumphs of everyday lesbian love relationships. Regrettably, love is depicted as a superficial, sexual, self-gratifying emotion with little commitment. Despite the movie's wit and humor, BAR GIRLS seems only to illustrate the loneliness of the girls instead of allowing them to rise above it. Love, without depth and fundamentals, is at best a shabby shadow of itself. BAR GIRLS features a strong sexual focus, depicting adultery, promiscuity and homosexuality. Sadly, the movie sheds no new insights, but rather portrays a selfish "I want, I grab" mentality reflecting values and standards that project loose boundaries of promiscuity and immorality.
