A raucous, hysterical crowdpleaser with a twist
6 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Philadelphia Gay & Lesbian Film Festival this summer, and it was honestly one of the funnest movies I've ever seen. It was kinda ridiculous how much we (the audience) loved it. I mean, I was laughing so hard it literally hurt (i hate when people say that, but we were truly holding our stomachs! Wiping tears!) It was a great big hit at the festival, and the mood afterwards was a jubilant party.

It's a take-off on the reality TV rage that's taken over television. Even the format of the film is drawn for TV, because the film unfolds in half-hour 'episodes', complete with intros and outros...it's just like watching the complete season of a TV show on DVD, one episode after another. Anyway, the cast is bizarre and odd, and just right. Sandon Berg delivers an endearing performance as the center of the mayhem, and hunky Rick Federman succeeds opposite him. There's a surprise twist at the end which I won't divulge, but it comes from a surprising person, and provides a nice reality check.

Michael Akers' direction is smooth and brisk, as it should be for this type of lark. Kudos to United Gay Network for producing a film that strives beyond the narrow market of 'gay interest'.

Interestingly, I don't really think it's strictly, a gay-interest film. Instead, it's a 'general audiences' film that happens to have a gay element, like "My Best Friend's Wedding", and many other recent films.

Get this DVD, invite a small crowd of friends over! It's just plain ol', silly romp, with lots of quotes you'll be throwing around for weeks afterward.
