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

I have to admit, I have never been a big fan of romance films, gay or straight. This was what I would call a "cute" movie, the filmmakers did well on a low budget. It was just too predictable, as most romance films are. I rented it because I will watch anything Mink Stole is in. The three sassy drag queens were fantastic, and finally a movie with gratuitous male nudity!
