This film stars two of the most appealing young men in movies today - Chris Klein and Freddie Prinze Jr. and the director takes every opportunity to focus on their charm and good looks making the film a must see. I can just imagine the approach the director used when he pitched the script to the stars: "It seems that every time there are two good looking guys in a film they end up in bed together - well, it's about time we showed two hunks who are really close yet they never cross the line to bed each other down. I really think two handsome straight guys can stay straight rather than straying and that's what I want to say in this film." And he does. He clearly shows how much affection and love there is between the two male leads but he never compromises their straightness by subjecting them to intimacy which gives the film a very refreshing approach but also a kind of truth that best buds know about.
