"Please do NOT consider this movie - this is really, honestly, truly an extremely painfully bad movie. Yes, Ryan Carnes is a hottie, but he is not worth the pain of a very shallow and vulgar 80 minutes.The script needed a couple of re-writes (let's say 40 :-) before this movie should have even been considered as a possible project. As the movie progressed my jaw dropped in correlation to the cringingly embarrassing plot and characters. I bought this dvd, ignoring the bad reviews, and I now wish I had "listened", so in effect I am writing this to myself in the past by warning : this REALLY is a waste of your time and money. Trust me. I know.
(By the way - it's an insult that "EATING OUT" is recommended as a good combination with "Just a Question Of Love" (see BETTER TOGETHER above) -- I don't know what criteria was used to ascertain this match, but rest assured - I've seen "JUST A QUESTION OF LOVE" , and it is ART compared to "EATING OUT" which is garbage)"

"This little film plays more like a French farce than a Hollywood film and if watched with that in mind it is sure to entertain. So many writers have mined this vein of boy playing girl playing boy in the web of catching the designated lover that it must be one of the more durable lines for comedy success through the years. Adding the contemporary slant of gay proposing straight posing as gay so that straight can get girl and gay can get lover works...but you have to stay with this one to catch all the double entendres that make it fun.
Classical music student Marc (a new 'Brad Pitt' like Ryan Carnes!) is a popular gay hunk who lives with Gwen (Emily Brooke Hands) who thinks she is the one responsible for making straight boys turn gay (!), so convinced is she that all the good men are gaily unavailable to her. Caleb (Scott Lunsford) is a straight guy who lives with jazz music student gay Kyle (Jim Verraros) in a purely roommate situation. Caleb, after an hilarious opening physical setup encounter with Tiffani (Rebekah Kochan), is convinced that gay men have an easier time of getting partnered than straight men. At a party Caleb meets Gwen who thinks Caleb is with Kyle, Caleb wants Gwen, and Kyle wants the apparently aloof Marc. Kyle convinces Caleb that if Caleb poses as gay he will gain entry into the Gwen/Marc abode and have access to Gwen while Kyle will have access to Marc. A spur of the moment telephone sex call (Gwen is attempting to turn on Caleb in front of Marc) results in Caleb and Marc 'hitting it off' much to the confusion of everyone. Add a dinner party for the four people involved which Caleb's ever-so-accepting family also attends and the whole situation explodes. How this whole schema plays out is the punch line of the film and all's well that end's well!
The cast is young and inexperienced and in need of a heavier directorial hand, but they are unanimously loveable and the men are certainly eye candy. As written and directed by Q. Allan Brocka EATNG OUT sails along breezily and provides enough fun for all audiences. Grady Harp, July 05 "
They Pulled It Off!

"I saw this at the Loft Theatre in Tucson, AZ, in a special presentation by the producer. In the first 5 minutes, I said to myself, "This is the most impossible premise for a movie I've ever seen. They can't possibly pull this off!" Well, they really did! The premise is ridiculous -- a straight kid decides to play gay because a gay friend of his says that a woman he is attracted to only dates gay men. Heartfelt writing and directing and absolutely real performances from the cast members make this movie totally believable (except for one minor plot twist at the very end). And the two male leads are gorgeous! (Although their performances are REALLY what makes the movie work. Honest!) This is a keeper."

"I grabbed this video from Blockbuster on a whim because the guys on it were pretty cute. Don't let that fool you into thinking they make the movie worth watching. The entire premise of the movie is absurd. The writing is beyond dreadful, and the acting and directing are even worse. I thought it couldn't get any worse, and then the adults came into the picture--where did they find these people? How does dreck like this get made in the first place? Don't waste your time, or money, on this one."

"First, I'll start off with the good points of the movie. There actually existed mildly humorous moments, and the actors were hot. If you want a movie with a certain sex appeal, by all means, this may actually be a good movie for you.
Aside from that, it is awful. The characters' behavior throughout the entire movie is utterly unrealistic. I found myself cringing at how stereotypes were utilized in this movie (particularly one gay character at the beginning of the movie who is portrayed in an excessively flamboyant manner). The plot is also advanced in a similarly unrealistic manner - Caleb, a straight male character decides to feign homosexuality (even going as far as engaging in some awkward homosexual activity) in order to win Gwen, a heterosexual female.
Gwen's reactions to Caleb are completely nonsensical. Even though she is under the impression that Caleb is gay, she appears to make serious attempts to seduce him. She produces a similarly absurd reaction to new information at the end of the movie when the plot finally unravels.
I would be offended if the makers of this movie honestly thought that people actually act the way the characters did in this movie. Fortunately, this was only a comedy, and only serves to entertain, not make a point. Unfortunately, I did not find myself smirking very often while I watched it. Because of this, I cannot recommend watching what is honestly another piece of assembly-line-produced trash. It's a chick flick (or guy flick, however you want to call it) that will catch everyone's attention ephemerally, then quickly be forgotten. Spare yourselves."
