A Gay Soap Opera
23 July 2016 | by edc411See all my reviews

The show that never lived up to the promise of "The L Word" and "Queer as Folk" seemed done. It was all about looking for love conversations over Chinese food with very little ever happening. Then it ended with a haircut.

Now there's a movie for people who have already forgotten Patrick being ready for his haircut. He comes back from Denver for more conversations and a wedding. Mostly relationship shoulda coulda woulda talk but the men are good looking. A movie that just drones on and on but never ascends to the quality and drama of an "As The World Turns" or "One Life To Live."

Something does eventually happen and it is good to see that the gay community is now so accepted that gay men can seem totally boring. I think the best part of the movie is the closing shot, a San Francisco cityscape with the Castro at night is a reminder of so much important LGBT history. But for a decent gay story line, I'm still looking.
