Extremely annoying film about an undergrown imp who still possesses a crush on his pre-adolescent best friend with whom he’d explored his burgeoning sexuality many years before. Following his now successful-filmmaker friend to Los Angeles, Buck awkwardly tries to integrate himself into Chuck’s life without much success, only aggravating Chuck and terrifying his girlfriend. is excellent as the theatre manager who directs a play that Buck writes about his childhood friend in this independent misfire that was shot entirely on digital camera. The personal moments that the grainy filmstock allows for are utterly useless considering how unsympathetic all the characters are (Chuck actually hangs out with the kind of people who avoid Buck with comments like “Ew, look at his jacket”)
