Trivia

The character of Ace is played by Ace Lundon, a longtime LGBTQ activist since the 60s who wrote a book about coming out in Hollywood called "The Dining Room's Full and The Closets are Empty". Ace Lundon was one of the first gay couples married by Reverend Troy Perry in the 1970s, and also lost his husband in the AIDS crisis. Ace got his start as a performer and producer working on Bob Hope's USO tours, and also was a publicist to the stars, like Jayne Mansfield and Mahahlia Jackson. The character is based on Ace's real life persona, and his friendship with the filmmaker, Jeff London. See more »

Daze of Whine and Neurosis
28 March 2015 | by SuraditSee all my reviews

I think we're supposed to feel sympathy for the main character, David, who is turning 50, is questioning his long-term partnership and who is having issues with his career. His partner, Greg, it is implied, is cold and manipulative and not all that loving.

In fact, the way it came across was that David was a self-absorbed, whiny drama queen whose partner was a very level-headed, sympathetic & loving person who withstood David's self-centered tantrums with amazing grace … and who, it might be added, had to be better off in every way to be free of David. That they apparently had had a long relationship and that it was only just beginning to unravel was really hard to believe. Greg and David then break up. Greg leaves. Lucky Greg.

Then, after further interminable kvetching and more egocentric, whiny soul- searching, David is paired up with his friend's cousin. Shane is a shy thirty-something young man from Indiana who is strangely (and I do mean "strangely") attracted to David. One has to believe that Shane must have led a pretty lonely, sheltered life up to this point and/or he's a masochist with daddy issues. They decide to head off into the sunset, or back to Shane's home in Indiana in this case, having finally found true love … by which time the viewer's credulity has been stretched to the breaking point.

The subject of unique issues that gay men face while coping with a mid-life crisis could certainly be fertile ground for comedy or drama, but this production failed to deliver. It was really impossible to feel any sympathy for David or to see any believable connection between him and Shane.
