Poor Cristoph is beside himself trying to figure out whether or not he and Edgar.... Unfortunately, his bedfellow refuses to tell him. Cristoph returns home confused. Things get worse when a series of mistakes causes him to lose his apartment and move to Edgar's for a while. At work the hapless cop and his team get in big trouble when the arrest the wrong person. It's then he learns Edgar's true vocation. If this weren't enough, his colleague Helen, who could be a lesbian, seems terribly attracted to him. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Regular Guys

Each piece of this movie was a cliche (gay guy loves straight guy, straight guy questions his sexuality, two cops fall in love on the job, close-minded people are confronted with their own homophobia, etc.), but put together the way they were, they worked in a surprisingly innovative way. The characters were flawed and likeable, the plot was well-paced, and the movie was not afraid to shy away from the issues it raised. Surprisingly good.

6.5/10. Good mix of comedy, romance, action and drama - with a gay theme. Good story, always interesting and nicely acted. It does have too many storylines however. A feel good movie.
