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>

As Eddy is taking his clothes off getting ready to jump into the lake, you can clearly see he's wearing underwear and that he drops his T shirt as he begins his run. But in the next scene from behind, Eddy is no longer wearing underwear and again drops his T shirt. See more »

Brilliant movie!
24 September 1999 | by kraulemSee all my reviews

The movie hit me the first time I had watched it. I soon realised that for every situation in every-day life, there's an according quote in this movie. OK, it's really not a high culture stuff, but at least it's very Hollywood-unlike. That's probably the reason why many people don't seem to like it. And as for the sex scenes - I think that even if (or rather just because) they are not hardcore, they emerge very naturally from the movie's story. This is one of my favourite movies of all times, and that's (I guess) why I watched it 40 times so far.
