If this movie is any indication (I'd never seen or heard of him before), Michael Knowles is a pretty good actor and a competent director - but he's a TERRIBLE writer. Both the story and the dialog in this movie are so horrible that I was able to watch it ONLY because I wanted to see if it's really as bad as most online reviewers say it is. It is, but then it isn't.
It has so many great assets, most notably the beautiful location and a surprisingly good cinematographer. The movie LOOKS fantastic. I'd never understood why people love the Hamptons, and now I do. What a wonderful place!
And I really do think Knowles has some talent, but he needs to let somebody else do the writing. (And the casting - he's the only good actor here; the woman who plays his wife isn't terrible, but the other two are, especially the unbearable woman who plays Marc's brassy, trashy, braying, monster-boobed girlfriend - WHAT A HORROR!)
Besides the persistently annoying story, bad casting, and idiotic, infuriating dialog, the abundance of full female nudity and complete lack of ANY male nudity are inexcusable in a movie with gay pretensions. Marc never even takes his shirt off, and wonderfully pale and dumpy and hairy David does it only once.
I hated this movie, but I'm giving it two stars because (1) it shows how truly beautiful the Hamptons are, and (2) it makes me want to see Michael Knowles in something else.
