Storyline

Tommie is a young guy in Manhattan with a dead-end job handing out fliers in Times Square. At the beginning of a fateful summer, he has a chance encounter with a friend who tells Tommie that he's headed to Provincetown, on the Cape, for a long weekend. Tommie is inspired to make his own trek to P-town, where he goes on a summer long, balls-out quest for Mr. Right, even though he has no money and holds his breath each time he uses his American Express card. In the course of the summer, Tommie looks for a work as a house boy at various inns, works several jobs, benefits from the kindness of a stranger, and gets involved with a series of men.

Pretty dreadful
5 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A real obnoxious guy (Wally White) decides to leave his job in NY and spend the summer in Provincetown MA and find Mr. Right.

OK--this is LOUSY. For starters--every gay stereotype is trotted out to go through its motions. Second, there's no plot. Third, ALL the characters are obnoxious. Fourth, I've been to PTown--this was obviously shot off season and it REALLY shows. Fifth, almost no one can act. Sixth, did I mention the main character is really obnoxious? Seven, all the "comedy" is lousy. A particularly bad sequence is White picking out dancers from square states (don't ask).

The ONLY bright spot here is Randy Becker. He turns in the sole good performance and is VERY hot (to put it mildly)! But he also plays a real jerk.

Basically one of the worst gay films ever--maybe THE worst! I wish I could give it a 0--it's not good enough for a 1!
