Disappointing, Slow, and again Disappointing
23 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The trailer portrayed the film very promising but as I sat at its premiere I could not wait to get out of the theater. The audience agrees as you can hear and see their reaction to its slow paced development that lead to nothing and/or the awkward script.

I am not sure why a lot of people are raving about this film. Perhaps it's production quality is slightly better than other homosexual-base films, or maybe just certain viewers only enjoyed its male frontal scenes?

PRODUCTION: Above-average, simple sets.

ACTING: Unimpressive and most of the actors did not commit to their characters. Therefore, it's harder for the audience to connect

DIRECTING: See all above. Enough said.
