User Reviews: I will preface this comment with the fact that this was an indie film and low budget.

That being said, bravo. I was amazed how close the characters in the movie to the aspects of mine, and probably every gay man’s, life. Tad and Brett borough the characters to life with such a brilliant portrayal of the outcast and the in-crowder stepping out. I will admit there were a couple times the dialog seemed a bit interesting and/or almost forced, but overall, i would recommend this movie to anyone. The gay aspect is not shoved in your face, so anyone who enjoys teen comedies can enjoy this.
