I can only confirm...
8 September 2012 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I can only confirm what most of the previous reviewers wrote. I also wanted to stop watching after 20 minutes but I was so curious to see if it could get worse. It did.

The elements were there to make an "OK" movie. After all, weren't there a lot of situations we can relate to, or have lived, or seen on the "gay scene"?

The announcement "I want a straight lover who is gay just for me" is a fantasy many of us must have had at least once, and could have been the basis for a funny story, as it could also have been used for a more serious movie...

But the acting was dreadful, the directing also, as was the sound.

Not worth more reviewing.
