A "coming out" story that avoids all the tired cliches and stays committed to telling the stories of these characters, "East Side Story" examines bias of all kinds and features stirring performances by incredibly attractive actors.

In high school, Matt and Ryan were best friends. More than friends, actually. But in the ensuing ten years, they've lost contact. So when Matt receives an invitation to Ryan's wedding he's surprised - especially that Ryan is marrying a woman! Matt interrupts his ideal alternative lifestyle to return to his hometown. He plans to rescue his former love from whatever "she-devil" has trapped him into this huge mistake. On the other hand, Ryan's perky fiancé Alex takes quite the liking to Matt. Is she very cunning, disarmingly ditsy, completely adorable - or all three? As Matt tries to rekindle the old flame, Ryan is intent on putting out any sparks. Ryan dismisses their old romance as just a high school thing, but Matt realizes Ryan may still be the love of his life. All the while, Matt must deal with "his new best friend" Alex, the two families, and a hometown he thought he'd left entirely in the past.

KISS THE BRIDE is simply one of the most outstanding romantic comedies released in 2007. It will surely bring back memories... memories that one may cherish or regret for the rest of his life. I am damn sure that a lot of normal straight guys can relate with the film except those who are in total denial for whatever reason they may have, and of course those who unfortunately didn't have the chance of experimenting during their adolescence.
Surely the film has some flaws but forgettable ones that they definitely will not ruin your viewing pleasure. The portrayals of Tori, Philipp and James are just amazing. The emotions that run amongst the three particularly during the confrontation were realistically touching. The supporting cast also made sure that their contributions added more colours to the feature and even some unimportant scenes become as important as they added certain flavours that tickle the viewers and at the same time make some uncertainties certain.
Watch out for a roller-coaster ride in the end from approximately 01:25!
