Some Prefer Cake ★★ 1997

Best friends Kira (Fontaine) and Sydney (Howley) are also roomies in San Francisco. Kira's stage fright prevents her from pursuing a career as a stand-up comedian and she's resentful when the material she wrote for her sister (Gonzalez) makes her a success. Kira's also got problems with a one-night stand turned stalker (Saito). Meanwhile, Syd is insisting everything is fine but she has career and boyfriend problems. Both women struggle with their co-dependency until realizing that the only way to move forward is to do it without clinging to each other. 95m/C DVD .
