about as passionate as a sex-ed movie...
29 June 2007 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I have never been as confused about the purpose of a movie as I was when I had watched this one. On one hand, it wants to be a little soft-porn. On the other hand, it wants to be deep, romantic and have some kind of message.

The acting is surprisingly good and the scenes where the two male-leads just converse is very convincing as it doesn't seem very acted at all. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about this movie.

It's not the lame sex-scenes in the movie that bothers me, but the fat that it feels very Christian. If there's an organization for non-promiscuous sex behind this movie, I want to know, because it does feel very educating and the "moral" of the story i way too spelled out for its own good.

Because, honestly, this movie is nothing but empty rhetoric.

and if you manage not to gag during the "..but you know in your heart that I'm right", i applaud you. Because this movie crosses the line for bad movie as well as the one for so- bad-it's-good and in the end it's just...bad.

it gets two stars only for the delivery of "didn't i tell you? i'm straight!" which is brilliant.
