Movie Reviews

A fun time will be had by all
bob frank | new york | 10/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""A Four Letter Word" is one of the best times I've had viewing a movie in a long time. The movie sails along, holding your attention until the credits roll across the screen. A lot of the credit goes to the director and the editor, but this is also a fine-looking cast, especially the lead actor, Jesse Archer, who's one of the handsomest men in film. More to the point, he is fun to watch as well and he dominates every scene he's in. This is not meant to be a deep, analytical view of gay men and sex in the new millennium, but a fun romp with interesting characters. If you want to be entertained, this movie will certainly do it."
Better than expected

"This is a step above most gay themed movies. I enjoyed the humor and drama, the acting was good, and it's one I'll watch again."
Can a "gay cliché" find true love in Chelsea?
Bob Lind | Phoenix, AZ United States | 08/26/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The night after a guy he meets at a bar declares him to be a "gay cliché," flamboyant partyboy Luke (Jesse Archer, who also co-wrote the screenplay) is bothered enough about it to ask his friends if he is "too gay," but seems unlikely to take their advice. When he meets up again with Stephen (the guy from the bar, played by Charlie David from "Dante's Cove"), Luke finds himself - for possibly the first time in his young gay life - open to having a stable and loving monogamous relationship. Knowing Luke's track record with guys, his friends scoff at this possibility, but can also see the change in Luke since he met Stephen. But Luke's dreams seem impossible, when he catches Stephen in several lies, including how he earns his comfortable living and fancy apartment.

This is essentially a sequel to producer/director/co-writer Casper Andreas' 2004 comedy "Slutty Summer," which introduced several characters, including Luke and his straight, alcoholic friend Marilyn, as well as also taking place in the trendy Chelsea area of Manhattan. There's an underlying lesson about self-acceptance and following your dreams, but the film suffers from poorly-directed overlapping stories and some incredibly cheesy dialogue, as well as a gratuitous "nude male yoga" scene that has nothing to do with the story. It's still fun, however, and has some interesting eye candy; I'll give it four stars out of five."
More than just Sex in the City
Mich Lyon | Scottsdale, AZ USA | 08/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"'A Four Letter Word" is the best gay comedy of 2008! Not a gay farce (ala "Another Gay Movie') this charming film is a fast paced romp through Manhattan following three diverse couples - gay, straight & bi-racial - as they traverse urban life in the 21st Century.

With high production values this follow-up to 2006s "Slutty Summer" (also starring Jesse Archer and directed by Casper Andreas) is a giant leap forward in the overall quality of gay independent cinema. The 2007 winner of the 'Outfest" Outstanding Screenplay Award.

Can barely wait for the third film in this wonderful series of films . . ."
