Run, Lola, Run
While newcomer Ashleigh Summer as Lola is a real cutie and a solid actor, the coincidences Lola rushes through are just too staged, the clichés get bigger along her route and the cut-away photoflashes are just plain annoying.
The plot, such as it is, is loosely based on the 1999 German film "Run Lola Run." Lola has three chances to come through with some photos for her girlfriend to seal a business deal. This scenario is repeated three times with minor variations, all of which lead to different endings.
The music rocks, but the animation is distracting and San Francisco is picaresque if forced. Annmarie Cullen and Cynthia Catania, both out lesbians, make up the band Saucy Monky along with Steve Giles and Megan Jane. Saucy Monky is a big part of the reason the film's soundtrack is so damn good. The tracks are hot, pulsating rock that fit seamlessly with the fast-paced action of the movie.
Jill Bennett co-stars as Casey, Lola’s current lover who is also brushing up against the dark and very European Danielle (Bennett’s real life partner, Cathy DeBuono) a client with whom she apparently has a past.
Bennett is all cute feminine business while Summer is a sexy lackadaisical, non-committal tomboy. But, Lola is so unreliable, irresponsible and has so many issues I wouldn’t want her to be my friend, let alone girlfriend.
