""Breaking the Cycle," is poor, simulated, soft-core gay male erotica shot on video (not film). It attempts to be a romantic comedy with the "message" that surfing the internet for casual sex is no way to find a long-term relationship, hardly an earth-shattering piece of information. The guys are pleasant-looking but the acting is laughable. 10% Productions uses straight actors playing gay; nothing unusual there, but interviews with two of them reveal that they were very uncomfortable doing so. It is obvious that no one received much coaching because the simulated erotic scenes are clumsy and the guys are apparently nervous even about being seen kissing; as a result, they look like they have never kissed anyone, male or female. Everything about their participation is a real turn-off. Irresponsibly, nowhere is there a hint of safe-sex practices. The two principals are supposed to be roommates who are actors having trouble finding work. That premise is the only candid aspect of this mess: who would hire such talentless hacks? This item is a complete failure, falling flatter than a pancake either as comedy or erotica."

"The story is nice but the acting...well let's just say 5 years old can do better than that. and again I blame it all at the director...did you take some acting class before ?? or may be he didn't pass cinematography school."
