Sam Cagnina and Steven Margolin first met when they were classmates in college; the two were studying similar fields (Sam was interested in massage therapy while Steven wanted to become a chiropractor), and as their fascination with one another grew, they discovered they were both bisexual.

The admirably tasteful result is a social study far more suited for the likes of Oprah Winfrey than Jerry Springer.
That rare documentary whose first half could have been written by Rosie O'Donnell, the second half by Pat Robertson.
The documentary fascinates not only because of its subject matter but because the three people -- whose backgrounds are individually developed -- are so likable, and because Kaplan began filming their relationship in the midst of its best times.
Documentary as mesmerizing reality show and juicy soap opera combined with enough relevance, skillful storytelling, polish and compelling subjects to make it big-screen-worthy.
Fascination turns into overkill well before that time is exhausted, as we are along with it.
Watching this domestic drama unfold is fascinating, funny and often wrenching.
The three participants are so banal, their childlike motives so transparently egotistical -- it's not inconceivable that they got together because their first names all begin with s -- you want to shake them.
Ultimately a tedious and exasperating look at a domestic experiment gone wrong.
