All-American boy meets stud-hunk
25 July 1999 | by mermattSee all my reviews

After a leisurely start, we get some great comic sequences. My favorites are ones I'd call "intimate piano," "drag queen fury," and "coffee shop confrontation."

Like other recent gay-themed films such as BEAUTIFUL THING, OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION, EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, and GET REAL, this film is very personal and doesn't get caught up in homophobia or AIDS. It doesn't even give us coming-out angst. It is just a sweet, old fashioned romance but with gay characters.

I highly recommend this film. It may become a mainstream charmer. I certainly hope so.
