Trivia

In the "Bumping Heads" segment, New York photographer Craig Hamrick can be briefly seen in the bar scene, sitting at a bar, talking to another uncredited extra. This is just before the main characters (one of whom is named Craig, and is played by an actor named Craig) "bump heads" giving the movie its title. Hamrick is a friend of the movie's director, 'Brian Sloan', and he was on the set that day shooting some publicity stills for the movie. Also visiting the set that day was Parker Posey, dropping by to see her pal Craig Chester. See more »

Gay Cinema Dreck!
18 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well...this movie started out cute with a really funny take on young gay love and how a couple of immature 20 year olds try to make a relationship work. Then this movie went right into the toilet with the 2nd installment called "O Beautiful'. This one is about a kid gay bashed and left in a cornfield. The acting was like a bad school play, the dialogue has to be heard to be believed. I actually felt embarrassed for the actors, especially when one breaks out into song singing America the Beautiful. The audience I saw this with was stunned into silence and snickered at this feeble attempt at high drama. It wasn't even in the category "so bad it's good", it was just plain excruciating to watch. The 3rd short film was so-so, the last segment was interesting was the characters thought were displayed in split-screen 3-parts segments that spun like a slot machine. It was an inventive idea but all in all I would avoid this movie like the plague. There is lots of good gay cinema out there but THIS IS NOT IT!
