Horrifying. But deliberately???
22 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm so glad I read the review by ClintzFlix before commenting, because while watching I was completely unaware that the writer/star was intentionally portraying himself in an unflattering light.

I'm sure Josh Thomas the person/comedian is absolutely lovely, but the character "Josh" in the show is completely unbearable. The accent, the gait, the sententiousness, the behavior, the entitlement, all made him unsympathetic, and if this were intentional I think it was pushed too far.

The story seemed somewhat implausible, and also a bit self-congratulatory. Gay men are notoriously judgmental about looks, and the idea that a rather homely and effeminate man could have passed as straight for 20 years and found an insanely hot girlfriend, and then upon discovering he's gay almost instantaneously have an insanely hot muscle stud fall in love with him as well is kind of preposterous.

If you're looking for a successful bro-pic watch Patrik 1,5 instead.
