That's right--that movie's funny/ridiculous in that she
keeps talkin about Bikini Kill and the Gits and the
Raincoats, but then she's totally into...Letters to Cleo!

I'm not sure if she called actually called them "The
Raincoats" or if they were credited that way. But anyway, I
could see the movie causing some confusion in the P2P
world, where people get easily confused.
