  1. A majority oriented movie that assumes sophisticated familiarity with a sexual minority.
  2. Berlanti brings a smart, witty, mainstream style to his well-crafted picture, which surely enhances its crossover appeal.
  3. It's the first mainstream gay movie that feels totally comfortable in its shoes.
  4. A slice-of-life where being gay is a fact of daily existence, not an excuse for existential dilemmas or grand tragedies.
  5. 75
    So likable, we go with it on its chosen level.
  6. 75
    The strength of the performances, along with the good will generated by these flawed but likable characters, carry the movie through.
  7. Funny and friendly and all-inclusive and unremarkable.
  8. Turns out to be a choppily written, unevenly acted exercise, no less shlocky and predictable than any of Hollywood's average second-string heterosexual comedies.
  9. An undemanding and reassuring amiability that made it a crowd-pleaser at Sundance.

I found some of it clumsily done, 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 »
