Alex Andero feels stuck washing dishes in his family's trattoria in New York City. He wants to write screenplays, and he has a great idea. Trouble is, he's not much with a typewriter; so, when his cousin calls and says a producer likes the idea and wants a script, Alex swallows his homophobia and asks for help from Elliot Springer, a talented writer who's an insecure, gay, Jewish nebbish. Elliot doesn't want the job, but Alex sets him up with Joey, a good-looking actor who works in the cafe. Elliot and Joey are soon getting it on, the script is slowly emerging, and Alex is discovering the beauty of Gwen, a woman in his writing class. Then, ego and greed threaten the partnership.

When Alex confronts Eliot at the restaurant, he takes his spoon away so he cannot finish his ice cream drink. After a few seconds Eliot jumps up to reveal that the half-full glass has suddenly become empty. See more »
I'm not doing this for Ray Tilman. I've had too many friends trying to please idiots like Ray Tilman. Even the one's who buy big houses. They still end up living in little tiny closets.

What a nice surprise! This is a film that Woody Allen would make if he had preferred men rather than young women! I can't think of a thing that I didn't like about it. Lots of smiles and some big laughs are mixed in with some genuine and sweet emotion. Co-written and directed by Christopher Livingston, the excellent cast includes Alex Andero & Elliot Springer. A must see for anyone that has written/is writing/or plans to write a script. I look forward to seeing it again soon. This is exactly what wretched messes like PARTNERS tried to do and totally missed. While gay audiences are most likely to be delighted, many straight audiences are sure to be entertained. I hope the creative people behind WILL AND GRACE will gain some insight from checking this out.
