just another tired old gay movie full of tired old gay clichés
From other reviews online, I'd gotten the impression that this might not be just another stale gay dramedy full of stale gay dramedy clichés... but five minutes in, one lead coyly asks the other, "When's the last time you got laid? 'cause you're really tense right now!" I hit eject, put the DVD back in its case, and tossed it in the box with tired old gay movies from the horrible old days when that's all we had.
With people like Alan Brown, Mark Thiedeman and Joseph Graham making intelligent, NON-clichéd gay movies -- about and for adults, not bitchy, mentally challenged, self-obsessed, cocaine-snorting, thirtysomething (or older) adolescents -- there's no excuse to keep recycling the same old garbage. Besides, one minute earlier the same character had said, "... or something equally as stupid." The writer gets old clichés just right, but writing plain English correctly evidently is beyond him. I almost ejected it then, but when the "got laid" line came fast on its heels, and in the same smug, whiny voice, it sealed this movie's fate for me.
