Fanci's Persuasion ★½ 1995

San Francisco-set gay farce features lesbian Fanci (Patton) 24 hours away from marrying lover Loretta (Boa) and in panic mode. Her parents refuse to come to the ceremony and there are numerous and inexplicable complications to deal with. Deliberately over-the-top performances and contrived dialogue and situations can't really take the strain despite the pic's good looks. 78m/C VHS . Jessica Patton, Boa, Justin Bond, Robert Coffman, Charles Herman-Wurmfeld; D: Charles Herman-Wurmfeld; W: Charles Herman-Wurmfeld; C: David Rush Morrison.
