Storyline

A quirky, romantic comedy about the complexity and frustration of finding a true love in the gay community. Marc is a struggling actor who finds an apartment in NYC by searching the obituaries. He lives with his out-of-work, eccentric fag-hag Cynthia. His best friend, Robert, is secretly in love with Marc, while Marc falls head over heels for flighty studio musician David. Things heat up as Marc's desire for David keeps him waiting by the phone, while Cynthia gets financially cut off from her rich parents and Robert struggles to express his feelings for Marc.

My kind of film!
10 November 2001 | by (Lansing, Michigan, US) – See all my reviews

There can't be too many gay romantic comedies. I like this genre, and I like seeing gay characters in this type of film.

The casting was right on the mark. The only thing I found a little weak was Aaron Williams' (Robert's) singing. But his acting made up for it. He portrayed the hopelessly hopeful romantic perfectly. Mara Hobel as Cynthia almost stole the show, with her emotions running the complete scale from one extreme to the other. Michael Lucas played Marc, and was able to slowly and subtly reveal Marc to be something of a romantic himself, which was not what we thought when the film started.

This film is a very affirming one for gay men, and I would love to see many more like it. Bring 'em on.
