Storyline

In this gay romantic comedy tinged with a bit of fetish, teen Kyle (Sean Tataryn) is a hopeful poet who, bored with his superficial life and West Hollywood friends, decides to move to the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, an area which he thinks is edgier and more artistic. Just after moving, Kyle discovers a neighborhood coffee shop, where he is hoping to get his poetic juices flowing, but instead meets a motorcycle riding 30-year-old carpenter (Christopher Bradley). Will their one night stand turn into something more? Written by TrivWhiz

Gorgeous guys - well endowed.
14 November 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

See this movie if only for the hunks that appear in it. Written by Rondo Mieczkowski and directed by David DeCoteau, the story isn't really that much. Young wasp kid, Kyle, played by cutie Sean Tataryn, who lives to write poetry, moves into Silver Lake to find another life experience. He does just that by meeting Mike, a biker hunk, played by Christopher Bradley. They get it on right away and sparks fly on the screen when these two let loose. Bradley isn't lacking where it counts, believe me. And Tataryn is a close second. It totally turned me on. But then our hero is an innocent young boy believing in first love being the only love. While the biker is an experienced rover with eyes for many. However, Kyle gets under his skin, in more ways than one. And soon we see that there is a heaven after all. Supporting actors all seem okay in their roles. The three campy drag queens have some funny lines and play it to the hilt. There is the older queen and his [girl] friend at the Cafe who reads his work [very badly] with a touch of melodrama. And Kyle's friend that eventually leads him to the baths where we have some very hot scenes, including our hero being ravished by not two but four naked guys at the same time. There isn't a spot on his adorable body that gets overlooked. And let us not forget the stripper at the club that unveils his most spectacular assets. Oh my! But love wins out the night Kyle finally gets to read his poem. Of course, it's all about Mike. I give this movie high ratings because it's great fun and would be a nice icebreaker on a late first date.
