What lifts Gayby above its sitcom trappings is its emotional generosity and easy warmth, the sense that characters are defined by -- and made funny through -- their aspirations, not their way with a one-liner.
Harris, a talented comic actress who looks more like a real person than a Hollywood facsimile of one, makes every scene she's in shine.
"Gayby" is too diffuse to have much pop when it comes to the topics at hand: love and friendship, and how unconventional modern permutations might help rewrite the script of romance.
[It] embraces broad jokes and obvious setups. Fortunately, these are balanced out by assertive pacing and entertaining observations.
The film develops into a sweet, surprisingly persuasive comedy about friends transitioning into family.
Lisecki gives this story a modest, quip-filled heartbeat; nothing is painted too broadly, and the complications and awkwardness of the situation play out with great warmth.
The good in Gayby easily outweighs the awkward staging and strained gags.
Your enjoyment of this baby-obsessed queer farce will depend largely upon your tolerance for seeing yet another group of gay urbanites incessantly sniping about it all.
A fresh, breezy take on modern gay life and platonic love delivered with disarming enthusiasm and genuine wit.
While Jonathan Lisecki is well in tune with his film's niche market, his knack for comedy, both visual and verbal, is universally hilarious.
A fast-paced, often hilarious pic about a woman who choose a gay friend to make her pregnant.
Lisecki directs deftly and lightly, and spreads the jokes around his strong cast.
Fantastic though it might sound, the plot of Gayby is still firmly planted in the real world.
An incredibly funny look at modern relationships and families from a distinct voice.
Lisecki's turned that short into a feature film with the same storyline and actors. Although it's a sweet movie, it's a case of more is not always better.
- Louis: This place is depressing.
- Jenn: Yeh, can we change that?
- Louis: I would kill myself if I lived here.
- Jenn: Let's kill it...
- Jenn: I don't even have a turkey baster.
