|Synopsis:||A forgotten one-night stand from the 1980s sets the stage for romance 15 years later in director Craig Chester's romantic comedy starring Parker Posey, Craig Chester, Malcolm Gets, and Chris Kattan. Despite the fact that neither Adam (Chester) nor Steve (Gets) recall the one-night stand they shared 15 years ago, the compatible pair form a fast bond when they meet again far-removed from the intoxicating effects of the party scene. When the loving couple realize that their pasts have previously intersected, it's up to their best friends Rhonda (Posey) and Michael (Kattan) to help their pals accept their past and use the foundation of their current relationship to forge ahead into a fulfilling future of kindness and commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi|

Kind of undecided about whether I really liked it or not. It wasn't horrible, yet not fabulous.

While I'm seldom impressed and/or ammused by "gay cinema". We were able to DVR this, so there wasn't even the risk of wasting a valuable "Netflix Queue Position" on a film we felt uncertain about.
Plus...I will watch ANYTHING that lists Parker Posey in the cast. She is always good for a laugh. And seldom disappoints.
While this film is not ground breaking by any means, it was (for the most part) ammusing. With the funniest bits usually involving Ms. Posey. And for the most part, did a fairly good job at presenting some of the complexities of dating/relationships in this day and age (regardless of sexual preferences).
It's almost wore watching this JUST for the first 20 minutes of this film, which are fracking HILARIOUS!!!

I love this film, it's excellently written with good wit. Some scenes and timing were uneven but generally good. A very funny film that pokes fun of pop culture and satirical. I can't stop laughing throughout the film, although I didn't quite like the toilet humour being used in the beginning. Adam and Steve are gonna be a good couple. Everyone did a great job in the film.

I kinda hated this movie when I first watched it on dvd but I now find it funny enough to be worth watching. It's silly and badly edited. Crag Chester and Malcolm Gets are the most unattractive gay couple I've seen in a movie in a while. There isn't very much chemistry and for characters in their mid-30s, they look tired and closer to 50. The montage towards the beginning and the square dancing are probably the worst scenes.
That said, this movie has some really great things on the side to enjoy. When they meet eachother's familys is pretty enjoyable. Parker Posey is amusing as an ex-fat comedian. I actually enjoyed this movie aside from the blah Adam and Steve relationship.

Cute but forgettable romantic comedy

I have a love/hate relationship with this movie. First of all, it was really silly, but also pretty funny. I had plenty of laughs. The first twelve minutes was sort of disturbing and absolutely hilarious. Nonetheless, it was an overall decent flick. Fun to watch I guess. But probably something you'd shrug off your head in a few days.

This movie isn't about guys seeking someone with the perfect body, or even the perfect match. It's about guys with issues learning to overcome them. And it's hilarious...especially the surreal line dance number toward the end.

History does have a way of putting people together. So if it odes not work the first time like it is supose to it will come back around again if it is ment to be.

I don't remember the last time I laughed this loud. If you're too sophisticated for diarrhea humor...well, you might want to go for something a little more high brow. If, like me, you get great pleasure out of seeing Parker Posey as an obese goth chick....well...have a seat.
A few awkward, clunky moments throughout...but who cares? Some really classic lines and scenarios that had to be plucked right from someone's real life gay interactions. I wish I had the line where he describes meeting a guy from the phone sex line who, in person, was nothing like he described...20 years older...much heavier...short...a midget actually...with burns all over his face...and no ears. 'I thought it was totally wrong for him to misrepresent himself like that. And I told him so. Right after we had sex.'
"Oprah has made it impossible for me to have a close relationship with anyone besides Oprah."

definately on the campy side, but I couldn't stop reacting.. It was funny, although a tad bit disgusting (side effect of coke laced with baby laxative.. ewwww), but overall very cute.. It was directed by Craig Chester, but I'm not sure who wrote the screenplay.. after reading his book, I think the mothers little set up was one of his touches.. Parker Posey was amusing as always.. (although she does get a lot of really... self centered roles)

this is an offbeat Romanric Gay comedy,def. strange,weird,I likes parts of it,yet some humour on par with 'gross' stuff,Parker Posey is grt,also a fun country Western dance off.
January 26, 2007
It was very strange... not what I was really expecting but still good. The dance scenes in the country bar are excellent, and the quirky humor like stabbing the dog and the family curse and the baby laxative... LOL. Definitely worth the rent--and Chris Kattan is adorable, as is a goth Craig Chester!

This is THE best gay love story I've ever seen (and yes, I have seen Brokeback Mountain). It is perfect from beginning to end and I wouldn't change a thing. GREAT CAST! Kudos to Craig Chester for making this. Please see it! Especially if you hate "fags"! Hopefully it will make you realise gay or straight there are two things we will always have in common despite our differences, we are all human beings and WE ALL NEED LOVE! Peace Be With You.

I thought this gay love farce was fun. It was silly, but by the end all i could think was "ah..... how sweet".
August 9, 2006
Silly, stupid, campy, but fun. There are not a lot of laughs but a few good 1 liners. Underlying message trying to get love to work despite our humanness (neither of the main character is especially attractive and each has a somewhat regrettable past) rings true as **it happens. Good little DVD instruction on how to do the **it happens line dance.
