Delightful and entertaining!
27 October 2009 | by mfb-2See all my reviews

I just got back from seeing this film at the Montreal GLBT film festival and found it thoroughly delightful and entertaining. The multi-talented H.P. Mendoza is to be congratulated for his clever writing -- especially the songs! (I'm still laughing over "Fag Hag"!!) I missed the credits, so it was a surprise to see HP's head shot posted here at IMDb, and to realize that he also played one of the characters in the movie. Did I say "multi-talented" already? This man does it all...casting, music, lighting, editing, etc.

"Fruit Fly" has something for everyone. There are a lot of laughs and some very tender moments along the way. I would have given it a "10," but some of the acting was weak in parts.
