"Mayson (Dan Selon) is a twenty-something gay man who is waiting for his first kiss (Yes, really!) His BFF, Robyn (Kendra Thomas) is pushing Mayson to be more aggressive about meeting other guys, and be open to whatever might happen, such as speaking to the cute guy they saw at the library and again at a coffee shop. At a party thrown by a mutual friend, Mayson encounters Reilly (his crush) again, and learns he had recently broken up with a girlfriend (Uh, oh). Of course, since this takes place in the Los Angeles area, where all cute guys are gay, Mayson and Reilly find a common interest in each other, and it goes from there.
The story is told in flashbacks with quick cuts to scenes with different characters, making it a bit confusing. While the concept is sweet and charming, and the attractive, inexperienced cast does the best with what they were given, the story (such as it is) suffers from rather cartoonish situations and some of the most inane dialogue I have ever heard in a film. There are also problems with the sound, and I had to constantly lower and raise the volume to hear one bit of dialogue, only to be blasted out of my seat at the next scene. Not rated, but would be a PG-13 at worst. DVD has no extras besides trailers and chapter stops. Best I can do on this one is give it three stars out of five."

Remembering the First Kiss
A good romantic comedy always warms the heart and Ariztical Entertainment delivers with its new release, "Be Mine". Mason (Dan Selon) really wants his first kiss and he has been waiting for it for a long time in his mind. Robyn (Kendra Thomas), his best friend feels the time has come for Mason to kiss a boy. There is only one problem--Mason is very shy and when an unexpected meeting at a coffeehouse with a good looking guy comes about, Mason cannot act even though he is smitten.
When Eric (Eric Taylor) invites mason to a Valentine Day party, they both meet Reily (Jared Welch) who just happens to be the same guy Mason met at the coffeehouse and the man of his dreams. Mason is slow to understand that Reily feels the same way towards him and we have a story of first love with all of its cuteness.
A great movie this is not but it has cute characters and a wonderful premise. So many of us have felt like Mason some time in our lives and the film is sure to bring back memories.
Not Much Substance to This Film

"I've seen a lot of gay films (around 250 or so) and this one is not high on my list. I will first focus on the strengths. This tells a simple story of an innocent and idealistic young man looking for Mr. Right. He finds him in another man who is only beginning to explore the possibility that he might be gay. For both of them, they share their "first kiss" with each other and then the film is over. Prior to that touching moment, we meet a lot of odd friends who like to drink and smoke pot and behave in silly, goofy ways. The acting comes across as insincere. At thirty minutes, I thought, "I hope this film gets better," but they almost never do after thirty minutes and this one didn't either. I recommend this film only if you have few other choices. My recommendations of tremendous gay films, awesome writing, insightful stories are: Priest, A Home at the End of the World, The Journey of Jared Price, Locked Up: Love Behind Bars, Milk, The Sum of Us, Making Love, Latter Days, Long-Term Relationship, Regarding Billy, and Touch of Pink, You'll Get Over It, All Over the Guy, Another Country, Back Soon, Beautiful Boxer (transgender theme), Beautiful Thing, Get Real, Big Eden, Boy Culture, Brokeback Moutain, Chris and Don - A Love Story, Coffee Date, C.R.A.Z.Y., An Englishman in New York, Fighting Tommy Riley, Gay Sex in the 70s, Gone, But Not Forgotten, Guide to Better Gay Sex (hot!), In and Out (hilarious), Just a Question of Love, A Love to Hide, Ma Vie En Rose (My Life in Pink) [transgender theme], Make the Yuletide Gay, and too many more to list."
