Trivia

Apparently, to prepare himself for the cross-dressing scene, Jason Isaacs wandered the drag clubs, picking up on behavior of people there. He wanted to bring Keanu Reeves along, but it would be hard to go undercover with the star of the newly-released The Matrix (1999), so he went alone. See more »

Goofs

When Sara and Nelson take the dogs to the beach, Sara has three dogs on a leash. Nelson has two. That makes five. They set the dogs free to run and for the rest of the beach scene there are only three dogs. See more »

Quotes

Nelson: Wow. Wow. Very, uh, Pink Flamingos.

Chaz: Stop it.
Brandon: You stop it.
Chaz: Bitch.

Give Keanu a Break!
23 April 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I have read several reviews for this movie, and I am very upset by them. All they have to say is how Keanu Reeves is such a bad actor. Frankly I am sick of everyone jumping on that bad wagon. A few people say that he's a bad actor, then everyone has to jump in and say it too. Sure, he could have done a few lines of this movie with more feeling, but that doesn't mean he deserves such awful critiques. When I was in the theater, several people around me were complaining of how it was the worst movie they ever saw. Here I was, still sitting there, trying to let my face return to normal color (I had cried a little). I was outraged. The viewers should have enjoyed it for what the movie was, a light romance, nothing more, nothing less. It wasn't supposed to be Oscar-winning, it was simply supposed to be romantic. Movies aren't always believeable, but that doesn't mean that it will automatically get bad reviews. It is really disappointing, because this movie was really good (and really sad).
