A Hollywood agent (dispatched to sign a "hot" new writer) and a sensitive gay man (waiting for a blind date), mistake each other for the person they were expecting to meet.Written by

Unlike so many short films which go nowhere and seem more like badly executed skits, this one tells us the story of four characters in a short time, and really comes across as a complete movie. And a really good movie, at that. The dialogue is clever and witty. The acting is strong. The entire film has a very slick look. Even the sound, lighting and other production values are a cut above those of most short films I've seen. The "twist" is completely fresh and new, and manages to avoid clichés. The writer could easily have resorted to bad clichés and "Three's Company" type gags and misunderstandings, but her did. I should also add that I find it refreshing to see a so-called "gay" film that doesn't take itself too seriously, but doesn't poke fun at homosexuals, either. This little gem worked for me on every level.
It's often difficult to find short films, so I was especially glad to stumble onto this one. Available Men runs on the Logo channel's CLick List - if you get a chance to see it, do so. This is probably a filmmaker we should be watching out for.
