Storyline

Eddy and Stuart share two-thirds of a dormitory suite. Due to bureaucratic error, a woman named Alex is added to their room. At first, relations among the three are tense. Soon, however, Alex falls for Eddy, and Stuart lusts after Alex. Eddy comes to realize not only that he's gay, but that he's attracted to Stuart. The three pledge not to act on any romantic (or lustful) feelings with each other, and become close friends . . . while bottling up a lot of sexual tension. Written by James Meek <james@oz.net>

Goofs

Eddie remarks that the following semester, he got a single - a room all to himself. He says this right before pushing the gnome out of the window and you can see (from the inside) it is indeed a different, smaller room than the one they were all sharing. But when viewed from outside, it can clearly be seen that he is in the same room from which he and Alex were throwing water balloons at Stuart. (Also director Andrew Fleming's cameo at the beginning of the movie of him yelling down to Eddy from a window is again that very same room.) See more »

Quotes

Alex: If you eat my yogurt again, I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna fucking kill you.
Stuart: You make murder sound so sexual, Alex.

Interesting concept, clever writing and all-round pretty entertaining
19 February 2005 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

I think what makes this film work is the chemistry between the three main characters. You like these characters, feel with them and believe that they would get along in real life like they do in the movie. The concept is clearly quite controversial, and I guess that's why it's so unpopular. I like the way it isn't really all resolved in the end... there is always a tiny degree of imperfection. The plot at times appears to have been written with the primary intention of being controversial rather than entirely realistic, emotionally or otherwise. I'm not sure if that's true, or it just seems that way. The pacing is pretty good. You're rarely bored. The clever dialog and script keeps your interest as well as consistently making you laugh. The film somehow makes you care about these characters, despite their many shortcomings and flaws. Maybe it's because they're human... we can identify with them, more than usually with American films(that are often shallow). The direction is pretty good. The film pretty much belongs in the 'good, but not entirely sure why' category. You like what you see, but you can't pin-point exactly why. All in all, a pretty good romance-comedy that should be seen by anyone open-minded enough to enjoy it. I recommend this to anyone who isn't offended by the topic(and not easily offended in general) but particularly to those who are fans of one or more of the main actors. 7/10
