Trivia

The scenes shot on the streets for the gay pride parade were shot at the actual annual Toronto Gay Pride parade, which is the largest annual gay pride celebration in North America, drawing between 500,000 and 750,000 people each year, and which also allows full nudity for the parade participants, just as portrayed in the movie.

Complete Waste of Time
21 April 2011 | by Sir_WilliamWSee all my reviews

I understand the term "Mockumentory" and what that encompasses, but i couldn't figure out if this movie was trying to be funny, serious, or whatever. The acting was bad, the writing was worse, and the premise was mediocre at best. I'm not sure what movie the person who rated this 10 stars saw, but i doubt it was The Baby Formula. The jokes were lame and uncomfortable, the scenes that were supposed to be "serious" were laughable, and you just don't really care about the characters... at all.

I sort of understand what the director was trying to accomplish, but it was a huge miss. Perhaps if this movie had better actors, and was done in a more serious tone with a few very subtle comedic bits, it would have been more successful, but instead the film was all over the place and it leaves the viewer not really knowing how they're supposed to feel. "Are they trying to be serious now, or was that a joke?" Is basically how you'll go through this movie.

I only wrote this "review" after seeing the ridiculous 10 star review given by someone who must surely work for the film in some manner, which is just sad.
