The Hollywood stuff at the beginning with Glenn Close as an Oscar presenter and Matt Dillon as a puffed-up star on the rise is as funny and as nasty as anything in Libby Gelman-Waxner's columns.

Rudnick has an knack for striding the line between having fun with (not making fun of) homosexual stereotypes and homophobic attitudes.

For the most part, this hilarious caper's gay characters are knee-deep in the American mainstream.
