In the book store scene at the beginning of the film, in the close-up of the gay Republican, the film is flipped, as you can tell from his shirt buttons being on the other side and the "SALE" sign behind him being reversed. See more »


Hat Sister: There are three things I know in life: One, you make your own reality and destinies. Two, no matter where you move, no matter how many times you move, there will always be an International Male catalogue on your doorstep, and when you open it you'll feel fat.

10 out of 10 for 'Ethan Green'
7 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, the actors, the writing the score, everything about it. It's a shame it's not on release in the UK, I only discovered it by accident on Here TV and went on a search to to see if it was available. I decided to take a risk and buy it without first watching it. I'm glad I did, it'd quite refreshing to find a gay movie that's not all about coming out and being alienated. Is funny without having to present gays in a stereotypical way and presents life and love as any other 'straight' movie would. I loved Meredith Baxter she was fantastically cast as Ethan's mother, the Hat Sisters were great fun. David Monahan as Leo was too cute. And Daniel Latterle was brilliant as Ethan. As a 32 year old gay man this movie felt relevant to me.
