Actor and playwright Dan Bucatinsky wrote the screenplay for this adaptation of his play I Know You Are, But What Am I?, though for the big-screen version, his slightly fractured love story was given a same-sex twist.

It is not a surprise to learn that Bucatinsky is developing a sitcom based on this film, because it plays like an overly long pilot.
It may not be totally fresh and original, but All Over the Guy is nearly void of gay stereotypes.
Sweet but often tedious.
Probably plays better on the stage. On film, the dialogue sometimes seems too writerly, too cute.
A nicely turned and witty screenplay from Bucatinsky.
This isn't another one of those annoying gay rights movies -- it just wants to have fun.

Much of the dialogue is sharp, but All Over is undone by melodrama, an overly familiar story and characters who seem more like stand-up comedians as they rattle off lines like, 'The self-pity bus stops right in front of my building. Get on it.'
As one predictable scene follows another, it becomes progressively more likable and more watchable.
Bucatinsky has presented gay characters every bit as theatrically neurotic and precious as their straight counterparts.
