Movie Info

A straight man gets a life-changing eyeful when he takes a close-up look at the lives of gay men in this independent comedy. At the age of thirty, Cuban-American Sebastian Cortez (Julien Hernandez) has the feeling his life is going nowhere -- he can't get work as a filmmaker, his relationship with his Prozac-addled girlfriend has resulted in an engagement that isn't leading either of them to the altar, and in his heart he knows he's never really been in love. One day, Sebastian thinks his luck

Julien Hernandez's micro-budgeted, gay-themed vanity project Sex, Politics & Cocktails gives all three a bad name.

Enthusiastic performances help, but without a logical script or confident direction, the fizz very quickly goes flat.

Structurally, Sex, Politics and Cocktails is wildly, almost frantically inventive ... But no amount of directorial trickery can mask the essential vacuousness of the story and its characters.

Comparing Sex to a student film is an insult to the American education system; even film students can make title cards without typos.

This peculiar little comedy, shot on digital video, gets points for editorial pizzazz, but earns a big zero for content.

It treads such well-worn ground that you can't help but want a little more substance.

Hernandez seems not to realize that a movie is supposed to sum to something.

A jumpy and occasionally unfocused feature made likable by a charismatic lead.
