Who is the audience for this thing?
8 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Should have been called The Miserably Sad since there is nary a whiff of happiness in this exercise in bitterness.

Who is audience for it supposed to be? Self hating gays? Unhappy heterosexuals? Miserable bisexuals? Selfish jackasses? If so than they hit the nail on the head but if their target audience was discriminating viewers the makers of this picture must have been sorely disappointed, as anybody unfortunate enough to see this will be too.

Badly written, poorly acted by most of the cast amateurishly shot and with a callous attitude towards its characters there ISN'T something here for anyone.
