These lines are penned by Bucatinsky himself, by the way, and while they often are very funny, sometimes they come over as too contrived.

Bland and unbelievable .

The whole story is so boring, it's just a repetitive nonsense about two gays that can't decide if they love eachother or not.

This movie is another contrived and cliched-ending fluff piece but it succeeds better than most with great supporting acting and snappy, one-liner filled dialogue.

I caught the last hour of this movie with my boyfriend and we enjoyed it so much.

I really don't have that much to say about this film, except that I truly enjoyed it and I would watch it again anytime.

But when you really listen to what they say, understand their backgrounds, and realize that this is the kind of thing that really does occur between friends everyday, it makes for fascinating entertainment.

What this movie has going for it are a mostly entertaining and intelligent screenplay (only occasionally irritating and stupid - like the Gone with the Wind bit on the first date, and a few similar times when an only marginally entertaining joke is dragged out way too long; Tom blowing vermouth fumes into the "martini" is another clunker); a dynamite comic performance by snarky Adam Goldberg just being snarky Adam Goldberg; a solid performance by Sasha Alexander as the female glue that holds the three male flakes together; and a good enough performance by Bucatinsky to make Eli believable as a person if not as a lover - but even that is more Ruccolo's fault than his.

The movie also continuously bashes In & Out, which, while it was a bit dull and played on stereotypes for humor, was ten times funnier and more clever than this film.

I liked the characters, I liked the witty dialoge and the Actors werevery enjoyable.

" The "clever" dialogue makes you grind your teeth it's so numbling banal and self-congratulatory.

i highly recommend it!

Yes, there is a LOT of bickering and arguing going on between all the characters in this film, and that may become tiresome and turn some viewers off.

(The "curse" of playing a gay role, the hex of giving us such an intense guy-on-guy bedroom scene; is there such a jinx as this?

Funny and entertaining.

Boring plot and characters .

Adam Goldberg as Brett is unflappably droll as the furniture salesman who has a snappy comeback to anything.

It is entertaining and has guts to it.

The whole thing plays out like a laughless gay sitcom pilot: boring people, limp dialogue and some embarassing "big" scenes at the end to try and whip up your interest.

In this dramedy Ruccolo gives us an especially intense performance which is actually easy to see, if you will only carefully watch his scenes: the telling facial expressions and eye movement; his body-set when he, for example, moves to stand against Eli in one scene, or to unobtrusively cup Eli's hands in another; even his movement of jaw muscles (did someone think his role through, or not!

This has been a really bad Summer for movies and the goodmovies worth watching are far and few between.

The story was dull.

You will find it very entertaining.....

This film is really fun and entertaining.

it's just a cute, very entertaining movie.

enjoyed it a lot .

A good movie to help wash out the taste of allthose empty Blockbusters of the Summer.

It is a refreshing film, entertaining and fun.

Richard Ruccolo is remarkable- hot and engaging and intelligent and brittle attractive and unlikable and totally human and recognizable in this film.

Simultaneously engaging and plodding, this is a messily balanced one straight couple-one gay couple ensemble that sidesteps its most important asset: Richard Ruccolo's Tom.

his writing was just so hilarious, andsensitive, and compelling.

Bland characters, jaw droppingly bad dialogue, pointless cameos, actors who chose the wrong profession, it's all here and waiting to be rented.

My heart sank when Bucatinsky and the director, Julie Davis, kept glueing the narrative back onto the predictable path of Tom coming around to Eli.

Dan Bucatinsky's writing is witty, fast paced, and intelligent.

I recently saw this at the 2001 Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and really enjoyed it.

I watched this movie last night for the second time, and I got to say that I really enjoyed it.

Save your money.

With that one exception, all the acting is note-perfect and I found the movie overall very entertaining.

The acting is evenly engaging, with cameo appearances by well known actors.
