Goofs

At the end of the opening titles, when writer, producer, director Brian Shepp is credited for the second time, in black chalk on the neck, shoulders, and back of one of the actors, there is a momentary transition from the chalk body credit to a party scene, with three other actors talking about what the spine looks and feels like on a male body when he bends over, and one of the other actors gently pushes the written on actor forward, as the dialogue begins, and there are shots of the three other actor's faces, and then there is a quick shot of the body which was written on, and the black chalk writing is gone, in just a few seconds. Then the black chalk actor turns over, and participates in the dialogue for a moment, and the other actors talk about drinking off of his body, which sexually arouses the other characters and then the other characters decide to go out to nightclubs for the evening, and they step over the place where the black chalk actor was lying, except now there is no more trace of the black chalk actor, and the other three characters leave without any more trace of the black chalk actor.

Seriously Flawed "Gay Date" Flick
11 July 2000 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

This film tries to be a fun, funny look at a the intertwined lives of a group of young gay men in San Francisco and their search for love. (It bills itself as the "Gay Date" film of the year.)

While the writing has its moments, the movie suffers from incoherent editing, bad directing, deficient acting and a poorly-mixed soundtrack. In many scenes it appears that the actors are reading (badly) from cards. Delivery of most lines is of soap-opera quality. The casting makes one wonder if any thought at all went into choices for some important roles. The dialog is inaudible whenever the boys are in a bar or are otherwise playing music.

In short, a clever idea that went horribly wrong in its execution (which is what should happen to this unfortunate picture).
