Audience Reviews for Gayby

  • Jun 03, 2014
    In "Gayby," Jenn(Jenn Harris) is a yoga instructor in New York City who feels her life is going nowhere. Not only does she feel like a glorified messenger at work, but she is also single. That is also with her biological clock ticking. Loudly. So, she approaches Matt(Matthew Wilkas), her best friend from college who now works in a comic book store where he tries to avoid his ex-boyfriend, about having a kid together. He agrees, even if being physical together is more than a little awkward after they reject the turkey baster method. With delicacy and much humor, "Gayby" handles a complex subject well and smartly.(Definitely compared to the time it came up on "Warehouse 13" recently when it felt creepy. Maybe it was just those two characters.) While almost wearing out its welcome, the characters never do, as they live and work in a New York City full of loneliness that is countered with extended non-traditional families. Personally, I find it cool that it is also a city full of comic book stores where stereotypes can be challenged and gay archetypes explored.

    The main characters are likable enough--and give endearing performances--but the film is too much like a cliche-heavy sitcom and thus falls flat.

    Really wanted to like this but it was flat as a pancake. The lead actress lacks charisma, the situations are absurd and the pacing is slack.

    The second half is far too conventional in the plot, but the convincing characters stay true to themselves from start to finish. Its nice to see a film that's populated by homosexuals that look and act like real people.
