Critic Reviews for Just Say Love
The glimmers of originality soon vanish, however, and we're left with a tired gay fantasy that seems as if it came out of a freshman creative-writing class.
The film's real strength, though, is the palpable chemistry between Jaeger and Mammana, which smoothly and convincingly oscillates from lust to frustration to a love that throws both men off their game.
Audience Reviews for Just Say Love
Gay painter Guy and Straight builder Doug meet on a park bench and strike up a conversation that leads into a no strings fling. No strings on the long term turns out to be pretty stringy and a most complicated relationship is forged. Adapted from a stage play in the slightest of ways as it is all shot as a play on a sound stage, which I found an uncinematic cop out. The initial part is quite compelling, but the two leads eventually left me rather cold. I didn't really grasp their chemistry and the staged balletic posed sex scene was laughable. It looks like it would be a great play to see on the stage. I just think this was lazy adaptation that could have been much much better if adapted properly for the screen.
Filmed stage play about a gay man and a straight, married construction worker who meet on a park bench and strike up a no strings attached, purely physical relationship, that quickly becomes something much deeper than sex for one of them. Never asserts a cinematic personality, or a reason for being other than as a filmed record of a play. Needs to be seen on stage rather than a screen.
