Brendan Ehrlick, star of TV's popular cop series "Hard Justice," would like to come out of the closet to his parents. His first step? Come out to his best friend Cory in Florida and solicit his help. Cory already knows he's gay but comes to L.A. anyway, where his actions, rather than help Brendan, put him in awkward, possibly career-threatening situations. As corporate managers advise Brendan to remain uninformative in dealing with paparazzi, Cory ventures off into a one-night-stand with Emily, a lesbian on the rebound from a toxic relationship. He falls for her, but being with him confuses her life-long lesbian identity. Her struggles with this prompt Cory towards suddenly becoming a better friend to Brendan, leading to an immediate abduction followed by a violent, sword-wielding confrontation at the "Hard Justice" cast party.Written by
Honestly, I loved this movie. It was comedic and touching without taking the viewer on an emotional roller-coaster. Having grown up in Los Angeles, I could really relate to the jokes regarding the city itself. It is by no means a movie that can be taken 100% seriously, as there are plenty of things that don't make sense and would never happen in real life. It has trippy elements to it that make it seem like the characters are sometimes high out of their minds. For some this might take away from the plot and make it seem insincere, but for me it just made me laugh even more. If you're looking for a lighthearted movie with major gay characters, some drama, and a silly adventure, you've hit the jackpot.
