Just terrible.
12 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is, far and above, the most jaw-droppingly inane film I've seen in ages. 40-year-old, gay college professor with antiquated and immature issues with his own sexuality is "magically transported" (via collision with elk sculpture) back into his high school years. But, wait a second... everybody's gay! Oh, good lord, hold on! Now--in this alternate reality--he's straight, and facing the same trials and tribulations he did as a gay man in the real world. I'm sure the filmmakers were trying for irony, and undoubtedly for wit, but I found neither. What's the message here, exactly? Maybe it was lost in the midst of poor writing and plot holes the size of my fist. Or maybe it never existed in the first place.
