Movie Info

His thirtieth birthday rapidly approaching, a gay actor working as a tour guide at a movie studio theme park seeks to explore life outside the seductive allure of circuit parties in director Carrie Preston's soul searching independent comedy. James Sanchez is your typical late-twenties gay male; his hair is thinning, his gut is growing, and his dreams of fame and fortune have been replaced with bills that are piling up and a car that's about to break down. When he's not stalking the cute young boy at the local coffee house, tentatively exploring the world of online dating, or earning a little extra dough by wearing a giant bunny costume, James at least finds comfort in the company of his best friends Roxy and Brandon. While actress-turned-activist Roxy struggles to show James that there is more to life than dancing the night away at the club, self-assured homosexual Brandon is doing his best to coach his pal in the fine art of breaking the ice when he sees a man he's like to meet. A perpetual outsider who doesn't quite fit in to the circuit scene and finds himself constantly stuck in the middle of his Hispanic-American heritage, James does his best to find his place in the world with a little help from those who care about him most.

Somewhat tedious low budget comedy drama with okay performances but nothing special.

Super Reviewer

A simple and sweet little film with appealing performances, especially from James Vasquez. It didn't always hold my interest, but it was pleasant and sincere throughout.

Wasn't the best gay film or the worst. More of a looks at one man's life as he's getting older, not finding mr.right, with a dead end job. More or less looking at us as people. Started out pretty slow but somewhere in the middle became a real movie.
