Movie Reviews

The course of true love, whatever kind
klavierspiel | TX, USA | 09/11/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A straight couple (Sasha Alexander and Adam Goldberg) set up their respective best friends, both gay (Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo) on a blind date. While the straight romance goes swimmingly along the gay couple lurches from crisis to crisis. Dan Bucatinsky, the star, also wrote and produced this romantic comedy-drama. There are many side-splitting scenes and great one-liners--the two men's disastrous first date, where they seem to have absolutely nothing in common, is especially on-target. The more serious scenes between Bucatinsky and Ruccolo, as they start to realize that they _do_ love one another after all, don't work as well, the dialogue lapsing into clichés. There is also too much glib pop psychological explanation as to why the two guys are so dysfunctional with regard to relationships. Still, with the talents of actors such as Lisa Kudrow, Cristina Ricci and Doris Roberts in supporting roles, this movie kept me continually laughing and entertained for the duration."
Another Fine Gay Film
Vasilius Trokis | San Francisco, CA | 08/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's great to see more and more fine portrayals of the gay community be presented so eloquently and thoughtfully on the silver screen. Last year's excellent "Broken Hearts Club" exemplified itself as a pristine presentation of a group of gay twentysomethings living in California. That story was touching, funny, and brilliantly well-crafted. Now we have "All Over the Guy." This film is a bit more intense (as it is funny) as two handsome gay men come to terms in establishing a relationship through the turbulent waters of dating and occasionally "running into one another" through their mutual heterosexual friends. This fine film stars Richard Ruccolo (of ABC's now cancelled "Two Guys & A Girl") and real-life gay screenwriter Dan Bucatinsky. Both leads are believable as they attempt at finding meaning with their on-again, off-again relationship. Their heterosexual counterparts (the ever-funny Adam Goldberg, and the beautiful, talented Sasha Alexander) in the film are just as funny and truly supportive of their gay friends' quest for monogamy, intimacy, and succeeding in becoming boyfriends, especially after Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) expresses his love for hunky-but-alcoholic Tom (the gorgeous Richard Ruccolo). "All Over the Guy" is not only a perfect gay date film, but enjoyable for its wonderful story and memorable cast. How ironic that when I went to go see this film with a large group of friends, some of them wound up expressing their true feelings for one another (to those guys they've liked secretly for sometime), that couples were spawned out of years old friendships. How amazing! Wish it was me, though. Regardless, the film is worth rushing out for to see it!"
Not the best, but I still bought the DVD
A. J. Aleman | New York, NY | 01/01/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, I really liked this movie; it is, in the end, another addition to the feel-good gay relationship movie library. I thought the actors were very good and mostly believable; I enjoyed seeing a gay couple exhibited as having the same problems in their relationships as straight couples, I enjoyed the straight sidekicks--without whom the movie would not have been complete. But then, on the other hand, we have another movie that is set in the la-la land of "all gay guys are good looking;" "all gay guys have unlimited witty one-liners;" "all gay guys have a best friend who is straight;" "all gay guys have their own great apartments surrounded by great neighbors;" and, the one I love the most, "gay relationships blossom out of no shared interests between the partners." So as a date movie I think it's great, and I own the DVD, because I liked it that much. But then there's that undeniably present and depressing feeling we'll all get when we leave the theater of "why can't I have that?" The answer, of course, is that "that" only exists... on the screen. Which is fine at the movies, that's what movies are for. In the end, while the script could have used some work to make the characters more real, I thought the cast delivered beautifully."
A wonderful insight into the dynamics of gay relationships
Dave Beards | Sydney Australia | 01/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had ordered the DVD of "All Over The Guy' on the strength of Richard Ruccolo. I loved him in '2guys and a girl' and was eager to see him in another role. Richard really breaks out of the sitcom mould in this movie - his characterisation of a chain smoking, heavy drinking masculine gay man is nothing short of breathtaking. The film itself is wonderful. It really delves into the difficulties of gay relationships in todays' society and how hard it is to meet 'Mr Right'. The onscreen dynamic between Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo is excellent - you really are drawn into the complexities of their relationship. A special note should be made of the DVD. Unlike many smaller budget, indi films, this one is packed with features such as an audio commentary, deleted scenes, storyboards, interviews, trailers and a short film made by the director that will have you glued to the screen for hours. A wonderful movie that I wholeheartedly recommend."
