The Swear-off Song

Another failed gay comedy, this one with tacky stereotypes
A frightened-seeming heterosexual in his mid-30s and an eye-rolling gay salon owner "meet cute" and, despite their differences, become movie buddies; still, everyone close to the straight guy misinterprets this friendship as an intimate relationship, causing him to question his own sexual preference. Simplistic, unamusing comedy of misunderstandings, with overdrawn, 'kooky' supporting characters and a basic lack of verisimilitude in the leading ones. Strictly as a superficial light entertainment, this low-budget film is relatively harmless and friendly enough; dig deeper however and it's really rather offensive--both to straight and gay audiences. Jonathan Bray's Todd, with his perpetually astonished expression, is like a walking loaf of white bread, complete with uptight clothes and a clenched jaw; neither sex could loosen this man up...and neither sex would take the time to. *1/2 from ****
