      Diego Semerene Slant Magazine This is the kind of film whose impeccably steady shots and perfectly ordinary televisual aesthetic feel at odds with its subject matter. Rated: 1/4 Apr 8, 2011 Full Review Nick Schager Village Voice The film's recognition of its (and its makers') own failings doesn't stop them from being unbearably accurate. Apr 6, 2011 Full Review Ronnie Scheib Variety After countless mumblecore and slacker indies, the sense of newness is gone. Apr 6, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The story had a lot of heart and truth to it. It has been a long time since I have seen a movie that is a drama surrounding two males that are not in a homosexual relationship. This I would recommend to someone that takes movie watching seriously, someone that is interested in something different. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A little uneven, but some parts are very funny and overall the film is light and charming. I found it way more enjoyable than My Life's In Turnaround, which this is a sequel to. Check it out, but probably only if you're familiar with Schaeffer's work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
