Everyone in this movie has been ordered off the shelf from the Stock Characters Store, and none of them wandered in from real life.

The whole Mormon/gay thing would be plenty for one movie without also sticking in AIDS, the betrayal of friends and actors-trying- to-get-their- big-break.

The curse of gay cinema is its belief that worn-out movie plots will become interesting if you put gay characters in them. This film takes the curse several steps further.

February 9, 2004
A winky, interminable and rather cringe-inducing manifesto... whose characters stand as crude if attractive types rather than three-dimensional people.

Cox, who wrote Sweet Home Alabama, again trades heavily in stereotype and coincidence for his directing debut.

Surprisingly dowdy-looking, shot more like a scruffy little naturalistic slice of alternative L.A. life than the star-crossed lover's daydream it mostly is.

Such a well-meaning but unambitious work that it's tempting to take it seriously even as you dismiss it.

A coming-of-age, coming-out, romantic comedy, religious intolerance flick, and if that sounds a bit crowded, that's because it is.

The BIG sex scene starts poorly as the pair, alone at last due to a so-convenient snow storm, efficiently undress themselves as if preparing for a rugby match ...

This sitcom setup is as bad as it sounds, and Cox never really surmounts it.

The screenplay is efficient to a fault, populated with stock characters.

January 27, 2004
Pilots its culture-challenging raison d'Ítre through an increasingly insufferable collection of gaysploitation conventions.
January 30, 2004
Sounds like the kind of movie that might appeal to, I dunno, maybe all seven openly gay Mormons and not many others.

February 20, 2004
A well-intentioned but horribly trite drama about acceptance and fulfillment that plays like an after-school special with naughty words and sex thrown in.

It's more melodrama than drama or love story, and Cox, who wrote Sweet Home Alabama, seems to have never met a stereotype he didn't like.

Even those who aren't immediately put off by the film's brazen attacks on religion -- and in particular, the LDS Church -- will likely be bored by this clumsy, incredibly contrived comedy, which has little charm.
