This is going to be a quick review. The movie started out pretty amusing, had some pretty funny parts in it, built up some charactors to the point of realism, had some scenes that reminded me very much of Guess Whos Coming to Dinner, and then turned into Threes Company at the end. One of the most difficult things to see was how they took a very emotional scene of true rejection and turned it into gay comedy performance. Overall it was just pretty lame, and that horrible ending had me off working on the computer before the credits hit. The DVD was done in Dolby Digital and was enhanced for 16x9 displays which is to its credit. There were no extra features to watch thank God.
