Storyline

Paul, Matt, and Will (in their 30s) have been friends for years. They converge at the seaside for the weekend, each with a boyfriend in tow. Paul is with Ben, his companion of five years: their relationship is on the rocks after months of Paul's moodiness since his brother Mark died. Matt brings Owen, whom he's dated for three months and wants to live with; to everyone else, they seem singularly incompatible. Will brings Adam, a 20-year old one-night stand, to meet "happy, well-adjusted homosexuals." As the six men, joined by Mark's lover, James, sort through their own relationships as well as new ones begun during the weekend, happiness and being well adjusted prove elusive.

Brief glimpse at gay relationships their surprises & changes
5 June 2002 | by (Cleveland, OH) – See all my reviews

This is definitely a low budget film and having seen the other review posted on the web site expected to be extremely disappointed.

I am very pleased to say the opposite is true. I think the low budget, made the film more believable. At first I was extremely annoyed at the character Paul as being truly obnoxious and overbearing. With the appearance and interaction with the other weekend guests, some insight as to his problems as well as those of other characters began to surface.

I enjoyed the film because I could identify the behavior with friends I've known. At times I think the resolutions were a little simplistic. But that's Ok. It gives the romantic in us some hope, not only harsh reality.
