Moreton shows plenty of ambition in his second feature, but somewhere in the space between page and screen, he lost the thread.

incredibly plot-heavy yet feels light as a feather

Filled with pretty faces and empty logic, David Moreton's noir-wannabe Testosterone flounders about, doing everything but flutter its eyelashes in an attempt to distract us from its lack of substance.

The movie's primary interest seems to be in following several good-looking men wherever they care to meander.

A pointless, wandering tale of obsession that seems to have little purpose beyond showing that gay characters can be in a messed-up movie too.

[Relies] on a creaky plot and gaping lapses in plausibility.

Unfortunately, Testosterone isn't as provocative as its premise or its title.

A tonal car wreck -- the equivalent of Chuck Norris crashing though the pages of an Isabel Allende novel.

The tone-challenged movie is meant to be a dark comedy, but there are long stretches without laughs.

Broken hearts and testosterone don't mix well with machetes (I think I would have preferred watching the 10 months of romance that they skipped over in the beginning).

A lackluster and meandering exercise in psycho-sexual provocation.

The film's major objective appears to be showing cute men doing suggestive things. But if that's your thing, why not just look at pictures? Why ruin it with a story?

This is a movie in which things happen for no reason other than that the director wills them to happen in order for something else to happen, logic be damned.

Woefully shallow.

The male characters are bland, a fatal flaw for a gay movie, while the women - Celina Font, Sonia Braga and Jennifer Coolidge - steal the show.

If you want to see a movie with some real chops about gays in Argentina, rent Wong Kar Wai's still-hip, still-smoldering Happy Together from 1997, and happier you will be.
| Original Score: 1/4

It's evident that Dean is capable of getting many other good-looking boyfriends if he so desires -- why get so worked up over one who's a jackass?

Heavy on the eye candy, light on plot and logic.

105 grueling minutes of film noir-inflected nonsense.

Never manages to reconcile its conflicting tones and ultimately lacks the wit necessary to fuel its outlandish plotting.
