A mildly interesting dramedy that tries to say lots, but doesn't say that much.
26 November 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I'm completely on the fence with this one.

I watched the trailer, and somehow I fell under the impression that it would be a fast paced comedy about a gay couple with juicy secrets unraveled by the - coincidentally gay - downstairs neighbor. Boy, was I wrong. I got this sucked into this artsy dramedy that tries to over analyze "gay relationships" instead.

Although it may seem appealing at first, Trying to distance itself from the most common LGBT movies which are usually raunchy comedies - there's not a single sex scene in the entire movie, kudos for that - or unending romantic dramas (which I love, don't get me wrong), it gets boring quite fast. The story develops into a unappealing conclusion, that has nothing to do with the direction it followed in the beginning, too bland and rushed.

The acting is not that bad, and the dialogues are quirky enough though they're not believable... to say the least. But the main problem with this piece, is the utter lack of chemistry between any of the characters. You have a couple, that clearly behaves like two random guys put together in the same room for the first time the week before, a romantic pairing that just has no spark at all, a pair of instant best friends with literally nothing in common, and a pair of old lovers that just don't seem to relate at all.

Maybe it's the dialogues fault, it just feels too... phony, too rehearsed It's like the writer just expect us to fill the blanks in a chemistry that just isn't there.

It's not a great movie. Don't expect a super clever dialogue - I mean, it sure has some pop cultural references in there - but you can watch it without regret. It's okay to watch it in a Sunday afternoon with some popcorn and no expectations whatsoever.
