    It plays like a pilot for what I imagine will be network TV's first all-gay sitcom.
  2. 36
    Pushes the standard tropes of gay romance movies a few more steps toward full-blown cliché-dom.

    He (Berlanti) shoots for bland entertainment and scores.
  4. 25
    This little serio-comedy contains absolutely nothing that warrants big-screen release. It's lit like TV, acted like TV and staged like TV.
  5. 20
    Bloated loquaciousness, damp self-absorption, and defensive reflexiveness on display here.

    This is one of those movies that sneaks into your heart in spite of any protesting you might offer. I found some of it clumsily done, especially the big death that happens near the end. I found this completely unnecessary, as if the screenwriter was trying to check off some list of things that must happen in a romantic comedy. The movie succeeds, though, largely because the characters (and actors, too) are so likable and the scenes among them have the chemistry of real friendships. I must admit, I put this movie on often, when I feel like settling into something comforting and with characters who I now regard as my own friends. Nothing earthshattering here, but it is pleasant, funny, big-hearted, and at times, true to life. Full Review »
