I Do is directed by Glenn Gaylord (writer/producer of "Leave it on the Floor") and produced by Stephen Israel ("Swimming with Sharks," "Boy Culture") and David W. Ross. Ross also wrote the film, which has won numerous Audience Awards at film festivals throughout the country, and the "Best of the Fest" Award at this year's Palm Springs Film Festival. The film views marriage equality in the U.S. through the prism of immigration rights. Stepping right into the middle of the marriage equality

The combustible possibilities surrounding a same-sex marriage involving partners of different nationalities is turned into rather tepid stuff in I Do.
Uneven comedy/drama tackles hot button issues like gay marriage and immigration.
Someday, when gay Americans enjoy full equality, we can all hope their sexuality will finally stop being used as fodder for dopey, hopelessly contrived dramas like "I Do."
In a better movie you might play along with contrived plot twists and fake obstacles, but watching "I Do," a movie with thin characters and a languorous pace, you find yourself talking back to the screen.
Ross's on-the-nose script offers little subtext or nuance, and the film-for all the inherent drama of the situation-has very little real-life grit.
Despite its heart being in the right place, I Do never does live up to its promise, thanks to melodramatic machinations and often preachy dialogue.
The parade of increasingly traumatic events results in some glum goings-on, so viewers need to hold on to the film's brighter moments.
Director Glenn Gaylord and director of photography David Morris Gil (shooting his first feature) give the film a nicely autumnal New York.
