Soft-core, trying to be more
8 October 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This movie is a truly interesting mess. It's little more than a soft-core gay film, but aspires and wants to be a romantic comedy. The acting is quite good for a film that looks like it was made on a shoestring college class budget, but any interesting thought the script has about modern gay romance is quickly buried by excessive nudity and simulated (or is it?) sex.

The script is cringe-worthy and taken from your average porno at times, and this is part of what makes it so muddled. A character actually happily yells "I AM YOUNG, DUMB AND FULL OF ***" at one point before jumping on top of his scene partner.

It could have been more, and seems like it really wants to be.
