The Cup coffee house, a gay hot spot, its workers, its regulars, and the drama it has to deal with every day. There's the owner of the shop, the fabulous Bea Reasonable and the flamboyant boy-crazy gay waiter, Jamie. There's also the slimy creeper looking for some fun. And then there's Helen, a straight girl with a penchant for drama. The drama unfolds when Helen meets her bisexual boyfriend at The Cup for a date. Hilarity ensues when their date goes awry and a water fight breaks out. And it only gets funnier from there. The Cup becomes the place for awkward coming out stories, hook-ups in the bathroom, and vampire meetings. The drama culminates when Helen enters the coffee house again to take down the man who stole her man from her. Written by Mattioli Productions

So. Much. Fun. See for yourself!
20 August 2015 | by mburnett-67591See all my reviews

Such a light and fun movie- definitely going to watch this one more than once and I suggest you do as well!

To start off, I wasn't quite sure what to expect at first, but I was pleasantly surprised. I first saw this at the Atlantic City Film Festival (where it won numerous awards, I might add, and very much deserved each of them). The character dynamics are interesting, the incredibly rigid, irritating, and uptight Helen is portrayed impeccably (as are the rest of the various colorful characters- it was fun to recognize Eric Millegan from Bones!), and there's always just so much going on. The storytelling technique is excellent, interweaving the stories of different individuals, taking the viewer on a crazy ride right along with all of its characters.

I couldn't believe the club was a set. It was so well-made, I was 100% convinced it was an actual place. I was absolutely blown away upon finding out that it wasn't.

All in all, very enjoyable!
