We spend a week in the L.A. offices where the daytime TV show "The Love Judge" is written and produced. Jo, the show's large and loud producer, announces she is leaving the show in two weeks. Paula (driven and on Prozac) and Mark (gay and moody) compete for Jo's job. Mark, coming onto the first anniversary of the death from AIDS of the love of his life, is attracted to Bill, who claims to be straight. Meanwhile, Jeremy, a close friend of Mark's, is putting the moves on Bill. Leslie, Jo's overworked assistant, tells Mark she wants to be a writer (she even has a script written). How these relationships that combine work and friendship play out is the movie's subject. Written by
Richard Glatzer's comedy-drama is an interesting, though somewhat pointless, glimpse into the lives of several people involved in an el cheapo TV soap opera. There's much to enjoy: The brilliant ensemble cast rise above the impoverished production values; Alexis Arquette kisses men with extraordinary relish; and the fabulously sexy Carlton Wilborn strips down to the bare essentials (only briefly, but *what* an eyeful!). But the script doesn't seem to go anywhere and fails to offer any startling revelations or insights into the lives of these characters. There's a few scattered laughs along the way and the acting is fine, but the film adds very little to the burgeoning subgenre of Queer Cinema.
