This romantic comedy takes the conventions of the genre and gives it a stylishly queer twist – think Philadelphia Story meets Latter Days – or, better yet, a comedic updating of the 1982 groundbreaker Making Love. Hunky Daniel (Jon Prescott) couldn’t have it better – great parents, a successful career as an investment banker, and the beautiful Jen (Margaret Anne Florence) as his fiancée. A seemingly perfect life… but there is one temptation that may derail his best laid plans for the straight-and-narrow: he has a thing for Tommy (Ian Novick), a charming former college classmate who is now openly gay. After a few drinks, Daniel succumbs to his repressed desires and makes a one time “mistake.” Soon after their initial tryst, the normally jaded Tommy falls head over heels in love, but Daniel wants nothing more of him or his dazzlingly seductive smile – he’s back with Jen, determined to marry her. With Tommy’s friends warning him against his involvement with a straight man and Daniel’s pledge of heterosexually, it would seem that nothing will come of them… but love and lust have a way of messing up even the best laid plans of man. A refreshingly funny story of coming out as well as a belated coming-of-age tale that sparkles with witty dialogue and believable characters. (USA, 2011, 90 Min., color, DVD)
