Storyline

Paul is a success who has gone stale with his work and his life. He has lost the love of his life but they are still co-workers. So he decides to "get" cancer so he can be popular again with Brad. When the (supposedly fake) test result comes back, he is diagnosed with an actual spot on his lungs which has "metastasized" and he is put to bed rest and on a drug regimen. But is the diagnosis real or faked or an "intervention" by his friends, co-workers and ex-lover... His family and friends do, in fact, assemble around him and hilarity ensues - with some familial bickering. Written by Mike Morrow

Feel Good Movie with Hotties Galore
19 July 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I loved the film. It's like a mainstream romantic-comedy except the leads happen to be two HOT (masculine) gay dudes who have a cool ying and yang thing going on. Paul is an ad exec, just a tad out of control, lives life within spitting distance of the edge, he has a Jim Carrey vibe about him. His sexy-fine boyfriend Brad is more calm and collected, I couldn't help but notice how much he looks like a young Richard Gere (circa: An Officer and a Gentleman). Paul's foolish ways catch up with him and the couple splits, but Paul doesn't sweat it much until Brad starts dating (another fine corn-fed specimen of man) former Bowflex model Ted. Ted's not the sharpest tool in the shed but he's really sweet and super funny. Paul, afraid that he might lose Brad for good, resorts to desperate measures and fakes having cancer. Be prepared to laugh. Hard. Also, there's an awesome bollywood-esque scene to look out for. This is definitely one of the best gay films I've seen in this genre in a long time. Hurry up and make another please.
