Quotes

Nathan: I don't want people from high school knowing about me.
Maggie: Why? Who cares?
Nathan: Because it makes them feel superior. On top of that, they get this self-satisfying look on their face like they knew all along. It pisses me off.
Maggie: I can flirt with who I want.
Nathan: You're my date.
Maggie: I am not your date.
Nathan: Well I consider you my date. If you don't want to play by the rules you can just fuck off. You're a prop and your replaceable.

One of the worst movies I have ever watched. Definitely the most disgusting lead character.
2 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had been looking forward to this film for quite some time as the synopsis seemed interesting. Also, truth be told, I am a complete sucker for gay melodramas and romantic comedies. I waited foolishly and have decided I want my time back.

Was the writer even in favor of gay relationships or the gay lifestyle? I ask because he does everything possible to craft the most loathsome gay lead character in history. Not only that, but he managed to cast an actor who is equally unappealing to play the character.

For whatever reason we are supposed to enjoy watching Nathan, a young man who is so in love with his talent, looks, and irresistible sexuality that it induces nothing but unending eye rolls. This is due to the fact that Nathan does not come off as especially talented, attractive, alluring, or intelligent. All of his dialogue is spoken merely to inflate himself and belittle everyone else around him. How could anyone be attracted to this hateful, greasy, selfish character at all, let alone enough to profess your love for him.

Take my advice, steer clear from this movie. It's title is much more fitting than I could have originally imagined as this film, its lead actor/character, director, and script have taken a very steep and rapid trip to the bottom of my trash bin.
