SCREEN: What will people love about GOOD KISSER when they head to the Siskel Film Center this week?
WENDY JO: They’ll likely enjoy the simmering extended erotic tension between the three women, and their distinct personalities as they navigate the awkward but compelling scenario. The humor!
SCREEN: Best Halloween costume ever?
WENDY JO: A pony tail. Or maybe it was a horses ass?
SCREEN: In the spirit of your film, what is the best advice you can give to someone aspiring to become a good kisser?
WENDY JO: I think it’s never a bad idea to slow it down a bit. Or to ask your Kisser how they like to kiss, because sometimes what you personally like doesn’t always match...
SCREEN: Celebrity crush?
WENDY JO: Jodie Foster. Still.
SCREEN: Worst job you’ve ever had?
WENDY JO: Envelope Factory. Worst part of as having to grab and press together 100 at a time as they rolled out, and place them into a box without spilling them all over the floor. Plus paper cuts.
SCREEN: Your go-to karaoke song?
WENDY JO: Baker Street. It’s sexy, poetic, and bittersweet, and that saxophone swells and breaks your heart, in a delicious way.
