To begin with, yes, I understand this is a Canadian film, which by nature has to be "nice" and cute. But there is really nothing funny, cute or nice about pedophilia. The beginning of the film opens up and promises a harsh, in-your-face slice of life for an underage male prostitute (who honestly does a decent job...I seriously felt sorry for this actor for taking this role/being exposed to this subject matter). But then starts to get "cute" with heart-warming "awwwwe..." moments (remember: Canadian) that you would almost expect on any TV sit-com as it wraps up with its obligatory schmaltz. There are in fact a couple of interesting plot-twists, but they are underplayed by the lackluster writing (and acting), made-for TV filmography and EXTREMELY predictable, linear writing. We actually watched the out-takes/cut scenes which reveal an even worse writing imaginable (someone at least had the sense to hire a very good editor). I would say, if you happen to be a fan of "Nip/Tuck" or want a "feel good" movie about pedophilia knowing it will all work out in the end, then sure...watch it. If not, there are much more accurate, hard-hitting and blunt dramas out there.
