Storyline

Love makes the world go round. At least that's what Marcel and Kyle believe, until they suddenly discover that love can alternatively flip the world upside-down. When certain elements are set into motion, they tend to stay in motion. If tampered with, they can spin out of control. Marcel and Kyle are in love at first sight, and even though they can't legally marry, they will find a way to make it work. French Marcel marries their lesbian friend Sarah so he can stay in the USA with Kyle. Together they can overcome any obstacle, hurdle any barrier. Together they cannot be stopped. Enter Kyle's sister April, a former prostitute. She needs a place to crash, but for how long? Taking a quick dislike to Marcel, April methodically drips poison into their happiness. But where Marcel sees a conniving woman with a not-so-hidden agenda, Kyle only sees his sister - in need. And how do you choose between family and the love of your life? Why should you have to? Love isn't pure after it's been ... Written by Embrem Entertainment

Dreadful writing, bad acting, quirky edits, waste of film
6 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writer/director based the story on a very old premise: boy meets boy, each fall heavily. Then, the 'troubled' transsexual sibling of one of them inserts her/himself into the guys' early courtship. To muddy this setup further, one half is a French national who enters into a 'Green Card' wedding with a not-too-cooperative lesbian friend.

From incredible bliss one moment, to a 180-degree flip of one half, falling for every ploy by the transsexual sibling, without any questioning at all. The broken-hearted other half just pines tearfully, his entreaties to his other half completely ignored.

The siblings represent the worst stereotypes: vain, flighty, young queer, with no moral center. Troubled transsexual who is a leech, a thief, and a vicious liar.

This script could not have been saved by a good director. Whatever acting capabilities possessed by this crew, are completely absent in this production.

Painful to watch, don't waste your time.
