Movie Info

I Do is directed by Glenn Gaylord (writer/producer of "Leave it on the Floor") and produced by Stephen Israel ("Swimming with Sharks," "Boy Culture") and David W. Ross. Ross also wrote the film, which has won numerous Audience Awards at film festivals throughout the country, and the "Best of the Fest" Award at this year's Palm Springs Film Festival. The film views marriage equality in the U.S. through the prism of immigration rights. Stepping right into the middle of the marriage equality debate, I Do is the deeply affecting story about a man forced by discrimination to make an impossible choice. Yet while both sides of the issue passionately state their cases, what's left in the balance are families and couples often split apart, especially those with bi-national makeups. Immigration, which most heterosexual couples take for granted as a given, complicates same-sex relationships, even in states where marriage is now legal.(c) Gravitas Ventures

Critic Reviews for I Do

The combustible possibilities surrounding a same-sex marriage involving partners of different nationalities is turned into rather tepid stuff in I Do.

Uneven comedy/drama tackles hot button issues like gay marriage and immigration.

A sweet, sincere, yet ultimately tepid story ...

Someday, when gay Americans enjoy full equality, we can all hope their sexuality will finally stop being used as fodder for dopey, hopelessly contrived dramas like "I Do."

In a better movie you might play along with contrived plot twists and fake obstacles, but watching "I Do," a movie with thin characters and a languorous pace, you find yourself talking back to the screen.

Ross's on-the-nose script offers little subtext or nuance, and the film-for all the inherent drama of the situation-has very little real-life grit.

So good. Haven't enjoyed a film so much since Brokeback. Maurice Compte is a world class actor (and so easy on the eyes).

Someday we can all hope that homosexual's sexuality will stop being used as fodder for dopey, hopelessly contrived dramas like "I Do."

Oh misery loves company and there is plenty of it in this trite film. Flat, uninteresting characters cry around storyline that goes nowhere. I don't.
