An acting clinic
3 October 2002 | by (Jersey City, NJ) – See all my reviews

Scott Baio puts on an acting tour de force as Brad, a young man who struggles to accept his best friend's homosexuality. The raw power of the "I'm gay!" scene rivals anything you'll see in "The Godfather, Part II," "A Streetcar Named Desire," or "Stone Cold." I demand a special edition DVD treatment of this classic, complete with commentary from Baio, deleted scenes, interactive screenplays, a documentary on the "Making Of," and all features necessary to do this great film justice.
