One word: so-so

I must admit, maybe I entered the theater with my hopes up a bit too high, hoping for some laughing-out-loud entertainment similar to 'The Full Monty'. However, all I got was some mild giggles, too many of them of the embarrassed kind, at least for my taste.

The story is simple, by no means original anymore, the characters remain cardboard cut-outs, lacking the depth that makes an audience live with them through their efforts to create a male escort service. Too many of the comic scenes feel forced, not natural (like the 'faking a male orgasm in the gym' scene). The ending as well feels forced, with everything suddenly turning out honky-dory for everyone involved, from one moment to the next.

I liked the movie best when it wasn't trying so hard, in the small, quieter moments, when they weren't trying too hard to find the balance between comedy and character development. All in all an okay but by no means exceptional way to while away two hours...
