Storyline

Tommie is a young guy in Manhattan with a dead-end job handing out fliers in Times Square. At the beginning of a fateful summer, he has a chance encounter with a friend who tells Tommie that he's headed to Provincetown, on the Cape, for a long weekend. Tommie is inspired to make his own trek to P-town, where he goes on a summer long, balls-out quest for Mr. Right, even though he has no money and holds his breath each time he uses his American Express card. In the course of the summer, Tommie looks for a work as a house boy at various inns, works several jobs, benefits from the kindness of a stranger, and gets involved with a series of men. Is it all worth it? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not Much on Plot, But Some Mindless Fun
1 November 2000 | by jerm1977See all my reviews

I was somewhat disappointed after seeing Lie Down With Dogs. I had a friend tell me that it was hilarious and that I would love it. I don't think "Love" is the word to describe how I liked the film. While it wasn't a complete waste of time, it wasn't a really good use of my time either. I love to see new gay themed movies coming out more and more often. However, when making a gay themed movie it is a good idea to develop your characters to some extent and have some plot. Just making a gay movie for the sake of making a gay movie is not a good enough reason. There are some funny moments in the film but overall the acting is really bad and there is really no story. Again, I don't advise NOT watching this movie, as I know some who thought it was hilarious...just don't go into it with really high hopes.
