Storyline

Chance Marquis, a confident, self-assured, quick-witted, perceptive, outspoken and clear-headed gay teenager, reflects back on his first year at an international high school. While meeting and making friends with an assortment of types, he also has the targeted attentions of a mirthless vice principal and a bullying, homophobic soccer jock out to make his life miserable. At home, Chance's perceptive little sister openly shares all his confidential secrets with their widowed career-army father seeking common ground with his atypical children. Introduced to a drag club, Chance finds fun and success in a cross-dressing contest, but a photo of his participation makes life at a school a living hell. Time to find out the depths of your friendships. Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

In an early scene, the vice-principal goes over Chance's academic history in an interview with Chance and states that he is known to sometimes channel deceased torch singers such as Rosemary Clooney, Dionne Warwick, and Ethel Merman; however, as the movie takes place in the 1980s (never indicating which exact year), the only singer of the three that might have been deceased is Ethel Merman (d. 1984). Rosemary Clooney died in 2002, and Ms. Warwick was still among the living going into 2013. See more »

proves that not all gays have style or class
13 February 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I have yet to see another gay film that is as bad as this one...completely predictable, lamely written, poorly acted, and nary a decent line in the entire film... Even more dismally disappointing is the fact that some people on IMDb actually liked it. To these people I would simply say that you need to set your sights higher, preferably by going and renting some of the good stuff. Examples: Whole New Thing; C.R.A.Z.Y; Just A Question of Love; Ma Vie en Rose; Shelter; The Bubble: Whispering Moon... or even Another Gay Movie - the original, NOT the sequel! There is no excuse for this piece of crap... there are lots of indie films that have been good, original and well acted. Shame!
