Had the Wrong Idea
14 September 2014 | by drryanjamesSee all my reviews

I have had this movie for some time, but never really paid attention to it, pushing it back on my viewing list. I finally watched it last night.

My spouse and I were overwhelmingly impressed with the acting, the singing, and the costumes. Being an indie film, we were not anticipating such a production, because it was gay themed it made it more incredible.

Being white gay men, it was certainly an incredible experience and pleasure to see a number of black actors getting parts. This is one movie I will watch multiple times.
