Heteros get their Crazy, Stupid, Love. this weekend, and I guess gay New Yorkers, fresh off their immensely satisfying we-have-arrived nuptials, get their own Crazy, Stupid, Tragedy. as counterprogramming.

For all its hanging on the details of the boys' heavily eroticized performances and its graphing of the relationships between the young performers, the film is at once too drawn out and underdeveloped.

The message is everything in this film that one wants to recommend to the young and uneducated in a forgetful age, despite its lack of originality and its dramatic lapses.

While it feels somewhat dated, as well as melodramatic, the filmmaking is intimate enough to keep us engaged with the characters.

A gay tragedy in three acts and more than a dozen excellent songs, "House of Boys" conveys an emotional honesty that overrides its dated style.

Against the odds, the indulgent mash-up of sex, old-fashioned corn, romance-novel fantasy and AIDS tragedy is a mostly winning combo.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
