I was disappointed when I viewed the movie--it was just way too cheesy. In addition, there was too much attention focused on other matters (like being gay) that detracted from the main message. Mostly, I thought that the acting was a bit lame. I am sure that getting experienced actors to participate and screenwriters to write the script would be both difficult and expensive.
I thought that the main message was appropriate, but viewers would just have to endure too much extraneous material that really was irrelevant to the message that is the subject of the movie. I just think that the main message would be lost on most people.
Overall, I think that if an undecided individual watched this movie, they would most likely turn it off before it is finished.
Sorry, but it is true.
