All-American boy meets stud-hunk, 25 July 1999
Author: Matthew Ignoffo (mermatt@webtv.net) from Eatontown, NJ, USA

After a leisurely start, we get some great comic sequences. My favorites are ones I'd call "intimate piano," "drag queen fury," and "coffee shop confrontation."

Like other recent gay-themed films such as BEAUTIFUL THING, OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION, EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, and GET REAL, this film is very personal and doesn't get caught up in homophobia or AIDS. It doesn't even give us coming-out angst. It is just a sweet, old fashioned romance but with gay characters.

I highly recommend this film. It may become a mainstream charmer. I certainly hope so.
