"The Boyfriend School" was the film's working title until the marketing department at Hemdale, its studio, learned that the title tested poorly in its surveys. Alternative titles considered included: "Two of Gus", "What She Knew", and "Don't Tell Her It's Me", with the final title finally making the cut. However, the film was retitled "The Boyfriend School" for cable television airings, as well as the DVD release. See more »

I have something to tell you...
No, I have something to tell you. To ask you. Two questions: Are you gay?
Gay? No, I am not...
Great! Are you free of disease?
I've got an ingrown toenail, but, Emily I am...
Don't talk. That's all I wanted to know. God help me, I don't care if you're married. I know that you're leaving, I know we'll only have this one night but I want it Lobo. I want the memories.

Absolutely charming, an old school romance that would never see the light of day in the noughties.
Full of genuinely funny moments, particularly from Shelley Long chastising her infant on the dangers of sticking fingers in sockets or eating oil covered bolts in a non-chalont manner. Leads look great and have the timing for comedy. Jamie Gertz never fails to charm.
Funny, romantic, inspiring and beautiful, says this soppy old romantic.
