Made for and only interesting to a clique.
13 May 2018 | by apjcSee all my reviews

This was billed as a comedy, I watched half an hour and it was anything but such. If it had been billed as HIV dramatic comedy, I'd have understood. The emphasis is always on medication with the underlying political content of U.S. medical care / drug prescriptions not doing enough or the right thing for those afflicted. Is this really singular to them rather than other serious medical conditions. Before any scream Homophobia, learn what phobia means. I don't fear or hate homosexuality, I don't understand it, but accept and respect their choice. HIV is the most fearsome STD, if anyone says it's God's judgement, I damn them and their God. I just feel this film didn't know how it wanted to handle this subject.
