Originally, different pairs of actors were to play the same characters when the film continued to the next meeting, but this was scrapped as too "gimmicky". See more »

Coop, what do you tell your wife?
What do you mean?
Well, every year for the past four years we've met in this same hotel room. It's the day before your anniversary. What does she think?
I tell her one of my buddies is sick and in the hospital, I have to go see him. So far, four of my closest imaginary friends have died.
Belinda doesn't strike me as being stupid.
She's not. She's just... trusting.

A low-budget Brokeback Mountain; but still relevant
Over the last week, I've seen a few gay-themed movies, and oddly several containing Mark Cirillo; well...I can honestly say this is the only one I liked. He is of course type-cast as "the gay guy" (not sure he can overcome his "gay voice") and his long-time friend is played by Scott Sell, who absolutely comes off as a virile, sexually curious man who struggles with his feelings for his friend on the eve of what for most is a lifelong commitment. The pace of the film is perfect as we see the "progression" of their relationship from year to year. If you can tolerate the sex scenes (and warning: they are very blunt...think Brokeback Mountain), there really is a good mix of character-revealing dialogue, to the point where you start asking yourself who is really being honest to whom...more by what ISN'T being said. The only negative is the odd insertion of rambling, sappy monologues (can't blame Mark for this...he didn't write it). All in all, this was a very well-thought, entertaining "fluffy" work, which can actually be thought-provoking if you read between the lines.
