I saw it at SIFF last year too. I was really excited for it, and goddamn it was horrible. It was probably the worst movie I saw at SIFF that year, and I was working so I saw dozens of them. They must have tried to make it that crappy, that couldn't have happened by accident.

Aren't you that guy who likes Showgirls?

Well duh it's good for a gay movie... besides Brokeback, good gay cinema is an oxymoron.

The big question is, does this one have a character named Griff? All bad gay movies need a character named Griff. I don't know why that is, they just do.

I agree with #1. After reading Grant's piece in The Stranger, the quality of the movie made sense. They were all shooting themselves in the foot with their ridiculous behavior. Blow, booze and partying. You party after it's in the can. Not while you're making it.

I saw it at the gay film festival a couple years ago. That was an earlier cut, and the current theatrical release is apparently much edited. At that time, it was a bit of a clunky mess, and the visuals were so dark you could barely make out half the film. But I could see lots of potential. Even in that mess, there were parts I liked.

I may see it again in the hopes that the newer edited version cures some of the problems with the version I saw before.

I'm seeing it on Sunday just cause I missed it.
