affable fatty turns out to be venomous "faggot"
14 January 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The funniest part of the film is the very beginning, when the nosy neighbour played by Drew Droege and his "pussywhipped" husband, call by and check out their potential future neighbour, played by Jonathan Lisecki. Droege kills it as professional suburban married gay parent with husband and baby-in-pram in tow. Droege meets his new fellow-gay neighbour with a disapproving grimace and then berates him for his overweight looks, party planning job, and worst of all, his single status. He does this in a very accomplished passive aggressive and haughty manner with little side eyed glances to partner and subtle gestures of indignation. He is basically telling Lisecki, "your obesity offends me, fat people are not desired in our community," without actually saying this ad verbatim.

I thought this would become the humorous premise of the movie. Unfortunately not. Lisecki is not as funny as Droege. Droege doesn't appear from then on, and Lisecki's character never manages to make me laugh at all.

Although the film pretends to criticize "superfical" West Hollywood body culture and LGBT elitism, the narrative is told from a frame of mind that adheres strictly to new gay conformist morals, almost as conservative as if they lived in an orthodox Evangelical community. You are supposed to not judge a person by his obesity to the point where you are obliged to be in a relationship with them or otherwise be outed as being "lookist" and "shallow." It is this emotional blackmail purported by whiny, needy, clingy Lisecki as if it were an honorable quest for love, that fails to make us empathize with him. I merely end up thinking: "get rid of the fat bastard, he doesn't deserve a boyfriend at all." He proves not just ugly on the outside, but on the inside as well.

Moreover the film becomes an unwatchable messy surreal shambles towards the end, by which point I switched off the DVD. If you do find Lisecki funny, then you might enjoy the film however.
