Leaving no cliché unturned, Coffee Date provides cheesy music, chats about gaydar and the obligatory are-you-looking-at-mine? urinal scene.

A warmhearted tale carried by genuine affection and a charming cast rather than cutting one-liners and turbo-charged plotting.

It's so full of bland good will, the story goes nowhere in romantic-comedy terms.

Coffee Date is a likable, extremely goofy piece of fluff.

Coffee Date has lots going on, and its message -- there are all kinds of love - is an earnest one. But the script relies too heavily on stock characters and overused plot devices to make any real impact.

Amid a recent flurry of low-budget independent productions, Coffee Date is a standout with its strongly developed central characters, complex themes and polished look.

How disappointing that a film that hints at the fluid, nonbinary natures of love and attraction should labor so hard to knot its own loose ends.

Story would be easy to take more seriously if the technique weren't so unpolished.
