Storyline

Marshall is a cocky young ad man working at a dead-end job for a boss who overlooks his talents. After seven years with his boyfriend, Gabe, Marshall's love life has become too comfortable. On top of that, he's turning 30! He is desperate for a new life. He goes looking for it online, where he comes upon a mysterious app called "eCupid" that guarantees to find true love. From the moment he downloads it, "eCupid" scans every inch of Marshall's online world and instantly turns his life upside down. Marshall suddenly gets everything he thinks he wanted. Newly single and ready for adventure, "eCupid" overwhelms Marshall with sexy guys at every turn, each promising to be the man of his fantasies. But too much of a good thing may not be a good thing. Marshall soon finds that all the attention is more than he bargained for. With the help of a wise and mysterious waitress (Morgan Fairchild), Marshall is given one last chance to listen to his heart and figure out what (and who) is really ... Written by websurfer

Enjoyable, funny, and accessible!
22 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed Ecupid, because I found it was a very universal story that any man or woman has gone through and that is what made it so enjoyable and accessible, especially being a gay romantic comedy.

I think what JC does with his films is break down stereotypes or even takes typical in your face stereotypes and turns them on their heads. You could have plugged in Jennifer Aniston into one half of the leading couple and you would have had a mainstream romantic comedy. I think that is what America needs to be able to start having access to. Movies don't have to be all about sex or violence or tragedy. This is escapist entertainment at it's best.

That, to me, is what JC is setting out to do, and he does it really well! You can call me bias, but I know for a fact that you could sit and watch this film with your own family and not have to worry about anything inappropriate coming up. And you can count on them having a good time, and maybe opening their own minds up a little. I thought the film as a whole was cute and funny and had a great lesson at the end. It's nice to see stories about love, whether they're between a man and man, a man and a woman, or a woman and a woman.

In the end, you're hoping for the guys to stay together. It's not for cynical, snooty, bitter people. It's a simple, beautiful story for people who still believe in the notion of true love. I highly recommend it!
