  • Trivia

      Tina and Jenny are holding the audition for the role "Jesse" in Lez Girls. Tina loves the performance of Niki Stevens who "sells the lesbian kiss" while Jenny likes the performance Luchi Santis because she's more intense.

    • Goof: Alice's cellphone seems to change between scenes. When she is arguing over the phone with Max, the Apple logo is clearly visible on the back of the phone. Later, when she is taking a photo of the couple dancing next to them at the party, her cellphone is a clamshell model similar to a Motorola.
