Not your every day coming out movie. Great characters, wonderful story line.Wish there were more 'gay' movies that were this good.All of the characters were well acted, especially loved seeing Megan Mulally, even though she had a small part in this movie. Kinda slow to begin, but I guess all movies need a bit of background at first. Really don't want to tell a lot of spoilers in here, actors were well cast, and did a wonderful job here. Hope the writers don't stop, but continue to produce great movies.
Another coming of age movie but exceptional and incomparable (by ZanderZion)
Well I've seen a lot of coming of age and gay themed movies but this one is totally great and incomparable. How I loved that the plot and entire movie spent to be gay themed yet its not slutty and is a decent thing to watch. It is an another coming of age story yet it is not a boring because it is plotted with an outstanding story. Theirs essence and learning in the movie.I really appreciate that the story line stays from start to end to depict reality and not exaggerated. I really liked that the main sense which is "friendship" is valued and emphasized that what so ever change <more>
may come "friendship" is always unchangeable. Humor, Drama and every flavors in the movie are well balance so it is really an interesting movie to watch.
A fresh comedy that's a lot better than the rating score (by charliejack)
After seeing the low score rating I had doubts for this film until I watched it. The movie is about two guys who have been best friends since they were kids with one of them wanting to get laid and the other being secretly gay. I thought the acting and plot was spot on and found some of conversations hilarious. I've never left a review on IMDb before but thought this is definitely a film that deserves more credit for the score it's been given. 8.5/10
For GAY and SRAIGHT dudes. (by jorgequeiros-pt)
As a gay man, I'm happy to see a gay-related-film without sex scenes or stereotypical characters. There's no flags, awkward coming outs, clichés or any of that. In fact, this isn't as much a gay-related film as it is about friendship. We get to see two guys, both dealing with their newly discovered difference and trying to stay friends in their own way.For the straight audience, I believe this can be equally funny and touching. The movie really shows how a straight guy can still be friends with a gay dude. Nothing has to change. Also, it's nice to see a gay character that <more>
isn't effeminate, overly dramatic or promiscuous. An original and refreshing teen story I must say.
Funny coming of age, and coming to terms story. No Bumping!! (by face-819-933726)
Really great little movie full of honest feeling, and open dialog. From the start this movie tells you that things are going to be done a bit differently, and never wavers from the message. These two "Dudes" are so great at being friends, Mike, and Matty; Mike really wants things to stay the same no matter how much they change, and Matty is so willing to walk through anything to be there for his best friend. This movie was filmed a few years ago, but the story, and sentiment are still very relevant. With great writing, and a really quality production supporting this really talented <more>
cast I really Enjoyed taking this ride with Mike, and Matty that is real friendship. I would recommend this movie to any open minded person out there, if you have ever given the wedgie then you don't deserve this movie. For everyone else this will be a nice treat. My only note is how these fellas both end up with people years older than them in the end, really that is my only problem, the rest of this is really entertaining, touching, and quite funny.
I wasn't expecting much when I set out to watch this, specially after seeing the undeservedly low rating here on IMDb. However after reading the premise I just couldn't pass up the opportunity. I was afraid that the humour would fall flat and the characters would be stereotypical and the gay side of things would would be half-assed but all my worries were for nothing. What I instead found was an entertainingly relate-able film, a good number of genuine laughs and a respectful handling of gay characters. The plot is something we've all seen before but with a twist, and thankfully <more>
the film doesn't stick to the premise how you think it would, and doesn't cheap out. It is about friendship more than anything else and that is why it works. Overall story-wise it was a little thin and there wasn't much in the way of emotional pay-off but I was left with a pleasant feeling and a new movie to recommend to others.
I got this movie and Geography Club, thinking I'd like Geography Club more - but I was blown out of the water. It's hard to do what Matty does in this movie is harder than nearly any teenager has the ability to do. But how it's done is in a lighthearted way, while the reaction of Michael is exactly how I would have expected it to go. These lifelong friends have their lives turned upside down just because one of them decides to be truthful about who he really is.This movie has a lot more stars in it than you'd think, which is a nice little bonus. But Matty & Michael's <more>
stories are what get you going from the opening scene, and accompanied by a great musical score, keep you going to the very end.
