Storyline

Alex Andero feels stuck washing dishes in his family's trattoria in New York City. He wants to write screenplays, and he has a great idea. Trouble is, he's not much with a typewriter; so, when his cousin calls and says a producer likes the idea and wants a script, Alex swallows his homophobia and asks for help from Elliot Springer, a talented writer who's an insecure, gay, Jewish nebbish. Elliot doesn't want the job, but Alex sets him up with Joey, a good-looking actor who works in the cafe. Elliot and Joey are soon getting it on, the script is slowly emerging, and Alex is discovering the beauty of Gwen, a woman in his writing class. Then, ego and greed threaten the partnership.

What a Surprise
21 October 2002 | by Brandy-28See all my reviews

This movie really surprised me. I did not expect to enjoy this movie whatsoever. But it did. Wonderful story - I would of love to see this Straight guy fall for the little Jewish gay guy. It would of made one hell of an ending. Granted I felt the ending was sufficient. The jewish guy ended up happy and with someone, instead of alone in his apartment or dead on the street somewhere.

A very enjoyable movie for all.
