I'm with Ebert
15 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with a film class and every one of us thought it was god-awful. The writing is totally flat and the acting is even worse. The characters and situations only become more unbelievable as the movie drones on. So both of this girl's parents are gay? And her fake boyfriend is gay? And her real boyfriend's uncle/dad is gay? Are we really supposed to just swallow that? Come on. This movie could almost be funny in a campy way if it didn't take itself so seriously. I'm not criticizing its message--I happen to completely agree with it--I just don't appreciate being bashed over the head with it. This movie has all the subtlety and nuance of a tidal wave. A lisping, rainbow-colored, Madonna-singing tidal wave.
