What else can you expect from a NO BUDGET movie
21 September 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was about to tear this movie down to the ground, because of its bad quality. Until I saw the interview with the director LeMay saying it was a "no budget" movie, and that the actors didn't get paid! That really changed my thoughts about it.

At first the film made an amateurish impression on me: the lighting was bad, the scenery cheapish, and the dialogues not too interesting. But in the end the director did a good job. The camera view angles were good, only it didn't came out as it should because their was no lighting. And since everything was voluntary all actors did it just to gain experience. That commands respect. Especially when talent is exhibited. Now I understand why most of the actors were totally relaxed during performance. There was no pressure to make achievements, as there would be when you get paid for what you do. But this gave very good results. It looked like everybody was himself. It gave a natural glow about everything.

It's also true that this gay movie has a positive message (though it's not the only one) and that it does not focus on sex. This remains a nice relieve from the many gay movies with violence, sadness, pathetic behaviour and sexual fetishes.

Still I feel the need to do some bashing: the acting performance of Sean Matic (the one playing the hustler) was hideous! Also this guy is far from handsome, to put it mildly. I cannot understand that somebody would pay more than one dollar to sleep with him. If he would do it with me I would ASK him for money, in stead of paying him! In my opinion this was a total miscast by LeMay. On the other hand, the efforts of Matt Walton (playing the CEO of an advert company) and Anthony Ames (playing the art director there) were good. Their facial expressions were convincing and charming. I hope to see more of them.

Whether this movie is a "must see" for gays, I don't know. There are some funny moments, but not enough to call it a comedy. And for a drama it's way too shallow. Still, if you like to see handsome straight guys (Walton and Ames) kissing other men, then this is your movie.
