(Sur)passing the bar
15 December 2005 | by NJMoonSee all my reviews

PARTNER(S) is an extremely watchable film. The story centers on a young lawyer looking to be made partner in his law firm so he allows a client to think he's gay. Although he lives with a gay friend, he's anything but. Convincing everyone is the film's main comic thrust. Complications ensue, but (naturally) none that can't be overcome neatly in 90 minutes. This film has an upbeat and polished feeling that helps compensate for it's minor shortcomings. The acting is good, the writing is competent and the soundtrack and photography are slick. Our hero is cut straight (pardon the pun) from the "Will & Grace" mold, complete with funky hair (he never really looks quite professional enough, even dressed to the nines). In fact, this could easily be a less manic episode of "Ally McBeel". If there's anything this light comedy lacks it is bite. Everything's a bit too easy to digest but for those looking for a light snack, it's a pleasant enough diversion.
