  1. Has all the crowd-pleasing elements moviegoers respond to: appealing hero, absorbing story, a solid group of supporting players and a big fat happy ending.
  2. 80
    Dares to substitute wit and warmth for the standard gay indie tropes in tackling its tale of an unconventional couple.
  3. Reviewed by: Scott Heller

    It's a refreshing alternative to hipper-than-thou moviemaking.
  4. Writer and first-time director Thomas Bezucha certainly knows how to create warmth, ambience and situation.
  5. Director Bezucha's eyes are as starry as Montana's sky, but it's pretty hard to resist such a determinedly utopian vision of love.
  6. By creating a kind of politically correct version of Andy Griffith's "Mayberry," director Bezucha has drained the movie not only of bigotry but also of dramatic conflict.
