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

Interesting relationship predicaments and questions left unresolved by pat answers...
18 October 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

"Noah's Arc", the Logo network's sassy, fizzy gay comedic soap about an African-American writer, his steady boyfriend and assorted friends and ex-paramours, wasn't exactly trend-setting or groundbreaking...it had just enough bitchy banter and stolen kisses for the two seasons it ran. Expanded to feature-length, the romantic ups-and-downs of these mercurial characters becomes wearing long before the final celebration. Flashy, flitting Noah (Darryl Stephens) is about to marry dimply, masculine Wade (Jensen Atwood) at Wade's family's vacation home in Martha's Vineyard, but the wedding weekend is disrupted when the invited guests find themselves mired in romantic indecision and petty jealousies. A handful of the questions raised about relationships (trust, commitment, and honesty to one's own self as well as to his partner) transcend the gay scenario; the writing is often funny and often biting. However, the answers we get are usually in the form of a retort which skirts the issue, followed by a friendly hug, a chaste kiss, or a klutzy pratfall. The jubilation felt at the end is awfully sweet, though it too seems more like frosting than actual cake. ** from ****
