Trivia:
In the diner scene Miss Coco Peru is seen cross outside the window and enter the diner but never appears thereafter. This is because he was cut out of the following bathroom scene where Gabriel and Mark almost kiss, which is such a sweet moment that the director Jim Fall decided not to put in another joke with Coco.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Judy finds Mark's keys, she tosses them onto Gabriel's bed, not too far from his hand. When Gabriel gets up to run after Mark in order to return his keys to him, he retrieves them from his roommate's bed, despite them being on his own bed in a previous shot.See more »

Gabriel:Do you do the other stuff?

The Go-Go Boy Of His Dreams, 16 November 2007
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Trick is a story of a late 20 something gay kid played by Christian Campbell who has been going through a breakup and after a bit of a drought is not having any success. Right now he'd settle for a one night stand of hot passion.

Especially after seeing J.P. Pitoc up on the stage of that gay bar doing the bumps and grinds, it's the man of his dreams. Fate is seemingly kind to him when he leaves the bar and he winds up on the same train as the object of his affection. Pitoc gets off at the same stop, eye contact is met and it's off to Campbell's place.

Which he shares with his straight roommate Brad Beyer and has a female friend played by Tori Spelling who just bounces in whenever she needs to use or borrow something.

When they go to Pitoc's world, Campbell is a bit put off by the partying world of the go-go boys. Will they ever get down to the slap and tickle?

Despite the emphasis on sex and one night stands, Trick is really a delightful romantic comedy with a gay twist. Tori Spelling by dint of her name recognition from 90210 is top billed though she's really in a supporting role. She's very funny in the role of the gay man's best straight woman friend who really wants to dominate the lives of the gay people around her. Also a bit sad.

Both Christian Campbell and J.P. Pitoc have gone on to some substantial careers on the big screen, small screen, and on stage. Pitoc made his film debut here in Trick. Both of them are cast well and I do love the eternal theme of the film that people can be quite a bit deeper than original impressions may make.
