Movie Info

It's lust at first sight when Gabriel (Christian Campbell), a songwriter with Broadway ambitions, runs into Mark (John Paul Pitoc), a hot go-go dancer at a local gay club. They head to Gabriel's place to seal the deal, but are thwarted when Gabriel's roommate Rich (Brad Beyer) arrives with opposing plans for their closet-sized apartment. It's the first of many sexual obstructions in a wild night that leaves the pair physically unsatisfied, but developing an unforeseen romantic bond nevertheless.

    This is like the best queer cinema gem without any sex, loved the quirky characters and music in the film. The film did not rely on hot actors or fabulous jokes. Just the simple and raw acting was used to bring about the meaning of finding true love. It's such a beautiful film, I loved Christian Campbell and John Paul Pitoc. Tori Spelling was so cool, she played her bitchy character well. The film is so realistic, it's really engaging. One of those films that I would watch it over and over again.

    I have a list of comments for this movie. 1. Christian Campbell is soooo cute. 2. Tori Spelling is soooo annoying 3. I feel like this movie would have been better as a short film. the same story could have been told a lot better in less time (like 15 minutes) Basically, there was just a lot that didnt need to be done and a lot of time wasting. The overall message could have been told much better in the form of a short film and Im sure I would have been much less disappointed had it been that way. What did this movie teach me?

    Finally some queer cinema which bothers with jokes actually pertinent and relevant to actual gay culture. In the first seven minutes, we get to see perfect parodies of (about half of) the types of annoying guys you don't want bothering you at the club - the drugged out ex-stripper, the blunt troll, the slick-lookin guy who just wants a sleazy unsafe threeway. From there, the film derails into normal dramedy territory, occasionally surfacing to visit a piano bar, an all night New York diner, an audition room, a contested fuck space. I read this movie best described as a "fever dream piece". Our lead is a cute naive-lookin young Broadway writer who picks up a suave overconfident stripper on the subway and spends the whole night trying unsuccessfully to find a hookup space. It's got its moments of sweetness and genuine feeling, always rare for a romance comedy. It's almost too shocking how much Tori Spelling looks like Miss Coco Peru.
