A girl named Alex is by mistake housed with 2 guys, Stuart and Eddy, in a college dorm suite. After initial problems they become friends. Stuart has the hots for Alex, Alex for Eddy and Eddy for Stuart. Can it work?
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

More physically intimate footage was shot between Stephen Baldwin and Josh Charles, notably a kissing scene during the big "three-way", and a one-on-one sex scene that occurred after Alex moves out. Baldwin discussed these scenes being cut in print interviews when the film came out. See more »
Eddy 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 »
In the past there have been made many movies about students in college, some of them drama's, other comedies. This is one of those, and I though a pretty good one. It's about two guys, Stuart and Eddy, who have to share their apartment with Alex, a girl, due to bureaucratic failure. In first they don't like this idea, but they manage to get along, and even to become close friends. But all three of them seem to want more out of this strange relationship....
Lara Flynn Boyle (Alex), Stephen Baldwin (Stuart) and Josh Charles (Eddy) did a good job as the three main characters, and overall this is a nice comedy about relationships, feelings and coming out of the closet. Together with films like With Honors and St. Elmo's Fire this is one of the better movies about college-escapades.
