Storyline

The writer can do anything he wants, right? Or maybe not...as Steven, a handsome young theater history professor discovers when he sets out to write a stage thriller - a plain, old generic thriller - only to discover that his characters prefer a character study - and want it to be a movie, not a play. At least Steven can create the man of his dreams, right? But that character - Vertigo - named after Steven's sixth grade teacher Mr. Vertigo (Steven always dates men named Vertigo) - isn't really cooperating. Will Steven ever finish his play? Will Vertigo behave (or rather, misbehave) as Steven wishes? And what about the friends on whom Steven is basing his other characters - will they still be his friends when it's all over?

I love gay cinema. I can be forgiving for low budget. I can be forgiving for mediocre acting. This parody of a movie about a play of a thriller is the worst movie of the gay cinema genre I have ever watched...and I've seen hundreds. I know it's supposed to be a comedy but they treat everything like it's a joke that their even trying to make a movie. It's hard to describe and I would normally say just watch it to understand but I cannot recommend it for ANY reason. Even the "hot" guys are like warm. The 1 redeeming quality that makes this movie 2 stars is that it's original. Not for me, but it's different.
