Movie Info

A simple brotherly joke goes hilariously awry in director Stewart Wade's zany tale of mistaken sexual identity. Todd's brother Barry wants to help his single sibling out by setting him up on a blind date. While all signs lead to a perfect match, it soon becomes obvious that Barry is having a little fun at his brother's expense when the Kelly in question turns out not to be a beautiful woman, but a homosexual male. Upon realizing that they have been duped by Todd's mischievous brother, the

It's clever and sweet and pretty consistently funny.

Leaving no cliché unturned, Coffee Date provides cheesy music, chats about gaydar and the obligatory are-you-looking-at-mine? urinal scene.

A warmhearted tale carried by genuine affection and a charming cast rather than cutting one-liners and turbo-charged plotting.

It's so full of bland good will, the story goes nowhere in romantic-comedy terms.

Coffee Date is a likable, extremely goofy piece of fluff.

Coffee Date has lots going on, and its message -- there are all kinds of love - is an earnest one. But the script relies too heavily on stock characters and overused plot devices to make any real impact.

Honestly, this awful little movie should have stayed in the closet.

Coffee Date is a film of small objectives, yet still achieves a fully-realized emotional state that's genuine, even in the midst of broad comedy.

Lacking in real wit and radiant human feeling.

This bittersweet indie's greatest asset is that stars [Jonathan] Bray and [Wilson] Cruz have both real chemistry and a real problem -- as opposed to a series of trumped-up plot machinations -- standing in the way of romance.

Queer cinema in this country is suffering and Coffee Date is further confirmation that gay men in Los Angeles have way too much money to throw around.

While the acting occasionally stoops to horrid, even worse is that the characters themselves can be aggravatingly insipid, strutting the most tired of gay-phobic jokes.

COFFEE DATE is an amusing twist on the somewhat tired genre of romantic comedy, although it really is more of a buddy movie.

Might usher in a whole new cinema trend: the gay romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for Coffee Date

I saw this at the Cleveland International Film Festival too. It was very funny. The joke that the guy is not gay but all his family and coworkers think he is, could have gotten old fast. It did bother me at first that no matter how many times he says he is not gay, his mother doesn't really listen. But because the characterizations were written so well, it actually works that every time the main guy tries to explain away the misunderstanding everyone else doesn't really hear him.

Wilson Cruz makes this fun but the movie itself is mostly silly.
