The way these characters are written tells us nothing about them and everything about the guy who wrote and directed this movie, whose name is Q. Allen Brocka and who may be the only person who will actually find it amusing.

While the filmmaker's ambition to give queer cinema a dopey sex comedy of its own is laudable, the results, unfortunately, fail on a base level. It just isn't very funny.

While there's zero chemistry between any of them in any combination, there is an awful lot of the excruciatingly shrill Gwen.

A slight sex comedy that would work far better on stage than screen, where it seems far too talky and too slow.

The story doesn't make any real sense, and the production values are home movie-cheap.

This low-budget college-campus farce succeeds in being occasionally playful but is mostly annoying.
