Storyline

Benjamin Bentley is an openly gay 17 year-old boy in Houston, Texas, with not so many friends. He suddenly becomes so infatuated with Tim Wyman, a handsome, popular - apparently straight - newcomer. When a not-so-accident brings them together, their love story begins. They start a secret relationship and build a world of their own. Something Like Summer is a coming of age story of true long-lasting love, about insecurities, social pressure, heartache and love again that spans 12 years. It's about being true to yourself, letting your heart lead the way and discovering the strength of love. Written by Philip Palovcik

Something like "As The World Turns"
3 December 2017 | by SuraditSee all my reviews

An attractive, likable cast made it all bearable and, at times, enjoyable, but most of the twists and turns in the story were predictable, derivative and tedious.

There also seemed to be numerous, awkward moments when, out of nowhere, a musical number was inserted in a startling, cringe worthy way. Rather than enhancing the story line, most of them were intrusive, barely relevant and uncomfortable.

While the whole movie was creeping over the line into soap opera territory, the final twist & turn removed all doubt.

It is probably still worth watching, but by the end you may be asking yourself, "what the hell just happened."
