Storyline

Noah, Alex, Ricky, Chance and their significant others travel to Martha's Vineyard for a weekend wedding getaway. Drama ensues as one-by-one their relationships start to crack under the pressure of closer examination. Newly successful screenwriter Noah looks to his friends for advice as he prepares to move his relationship to a more serious level while struggling to keep his first studio movie alive. But the friends are of little help as they juggle their own issues. Elder statesmen Chance and Eddie attempt to scratch their seven-year itch but worry their marriage has permanently lost its spark. And playboy Ricky flaunts his barely legal college student fling in the face of his monogamous friends but hides a surprising secret that threatens to rock the house. Add to the mix Alex's crazy-making wedding prep, a closeted superstar rapper, a high-maintenance studio exec, and a surprise visitor and you've got the makings of a hilarious and poignant romantic comedy. Written by S. McCants

As sweet as saccharin without the after taste
23 October 2008 | by (Seattle, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this movie at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival; and it was well worth it. The movie takes place a few months after the end of season two, and neatly ties up all the loose plot strings from the TV show. Everything that made the TV show so much fun is in the movie; right down to Noah's lips & Wade's rock hard……. abs.

The premise of the movie is that Wade has asked Noah to marry him in his family's house in Martha's Vineyard, and Noah has brought his ARC to keep himself afloat. (I know very punny) You have Chance & Eddie there trying to work through their issues of commitment, and boredom? Alex taking charge in a Patton-esquire manner to make sure the wedding is perfect, while still trying to keep in contact with Trey (& their new child) via laptop. Ricky and his boy toy for the weekend (one of Chance's students!) causing drama as well. Baby Gat even shows to make thing even more complicated and insane.

For the most part, the movie hits far more than it misses. It's sweet and crazy like trying to eat cotton candy dipped in caramel while hanging upside down on a tight rope! If you are in the mood for a light playful romp, then you'll enjoy this movie.
