Screwball comedy with a modern twist; instead of Kate Hepburn and Cary Grant, it's Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. Two college roommates (victims of a mutually unrequited love) meet up again five years after school at their housemate's wedding. With the introduction of a Bellamy-esque soap star, the sparks, sexual and verbal, start to fly, as the ex-roommates try to navigate their new romance. Written by

This is just so charming. It's funny and sprightly and very feel-good. After decades of providing anonymous musical vocals for Hollywood actors, Marni Nixon gets an engaging supporting role here as Aunt Alice. Somehow, that's just so right for this movie. I also especially liked Lauren Velez as Carol and Tuc Watkins as Sterling, but all the actors did a fine job (some of them aren't bad looking either).
What really strikes a chord with me, though, is its wish-fulfillment. This film is the ultimate revenge fantasy of anyone who's ever seen - or been - a gay man cruelly disdained by some gorgeous heterosexual object of desire. It revels in poor repentant Brendan's predicament...but it does it in the sweetest, most adoring way possible.
I saw this at our local art academy, where it was apparently brought back by popular demand. The audience was laughing and hooting throughout more than for any other movie I've seen. I was as gleeful as the rest of them.
