Sex versus romance: the former seen as liberating, the latter seen as a trap
Two gay best friends--one a relationship-minded, domestic type who scares young men away with meals and candlelight, the other a promiscuous guy who screws 'em and leaves 'em--plan to be a couple if neither has found true love by the time they're 35...but since the sexually-available friend isn't interested in romance, there doesn't seem to be a basis for their pact, nor for this movie. Writer-director J.C. Calciano treads where every other filmmaker working in gay cinema has already gone. The actors have obviously been cast by how they look without their shirts on, because God forbid a gay man shouldn't be buff and tanned. Age 35 is seen as a cutoff point for gay sexuality--it's all downhill from there--but panic doesn't seem to be settling in, only a type of precious, eye-rolling self-consciousness that scuttles any hope of eroticism, comedic or otherwise. NO STARS from ****
