Movie Reviews

Hallmark-Type Boring Straight Movie of the Week
Cornelius G. Kelly | Albuquerque | 07/16/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was looking at gay films when this movie appeared along with other gay movies as a suggested film of interest to me. Naturally thinking it was a gay film I read the Amazon description and thought the struggle of 2 teens relationship to be gay and happy in a small town would be interesting. Wrong.

I watched the film wanting to turn it off so many times because the story line was extremely boring but I was waiting for a gay teen to appear. The movie is about 2 straight teens. I was very dissapointed but so frustrated that the movie lacked any kind of intelligent writing or acting. The ending is quite laughable.

This movie is as flat as the Texas landscape that they mention. I cannot find any redeeming quality to recommend this to anyone. I see the other reviewers gave this movie 5 stars and I wonder if they saw the same movie I did. I would actually give it -2 stars for wasting my time and money."
Not good enough

"This is a typical straight love story that can be seen in any other movieor tv program, don't know why you have it in your gay movies section, went ahead and ordered and I didn't find anything gay on it and the movie is not even worth the price that I paid for it. Skip it."
Please don't make me watch it again!

"The only "gay" relevance to this film is the real life orientation of out star Chad Allen.
Moving on from there one can only say that the lead characters did justice to the roles they played and lines they spoke far above what they deserved.
Kudos to Chad Allen, Marshall R Teague, Polly Cole, Tamara Clatterbuck, Shandra Farr, all of whom had at least one moment during this weepy trite epic of cliche riddled, breast beating, teeth gnashing melodrama.
I'd rather slit my wrists than recount the events in this baby gets you married into the "good" family tumbleweed Babylon."
