When Dirk is inviting Grace to dine with him, he shakes out a napkin and tosses it on her plate. We then see the napkin on the plate neatly folded in a triangle shape. See more »
Maudey, we need your advice.
Follow your heart. Don't let other people's definition of normal cramp your love life. Love a young, gay, tall British man if that's what you want.

The closing credits tell us that "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" was "sung a little by Kathy Bates" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" was "sung even less by Kathy Bates." See more »
I am a huge Rupert Everett fan. I adore Kathy Bates so when I saw it available I decided to check it out. The synopsis didn't really tell you much. In parts it was silly , touching and in others some parts were down right hysterical.
Any person that is a huge fan of a personality of any type will find some small identifying traits with the main character. (Of course there are many they won't, but that is the point)
If you like any of the actors give it a watch but don't look for any thing too dramatic it's good fun.
I might also mention you can see how darn tall Rupert is. I mean I knew he was 6'4" but he seems even more in this film. He even seemed to stoop a bit due to the other characters height in this. He is tall! I mean tall!!!! And for you Rupert fans there is a bare chest scene...WONDERFUL!
