Houston Rhines, Morgan Fairchild and Noah Schuffman in eCupid.

A young man is turning 30 and despite being handsome, white and gainfully employed, this is a crisis for him. Suddenly dissatisfied with his cushy life and devoted boyfriend, he signs up for a dating website that goes Skynet on him and proceeds to ruin his life: men start showing up at his apartment, he is set up on dates that he has no control over, parties are being thrown at his place and his boyfriend, who is naturally upset, leaves him. It doesn’t help that a new co-worker is easy on the eyes and making a bee-line for him, but thanks to some of the most unintelligent dialogue you’ve ever heard, combined with terrible direction and editing, you won’t give a damn about any of it. Most of the movie makes incredibly little sense and when it does it’s offensive (he reacts to a fat guy showing up on a blind date as if he’s been denied a spot at a lunch counter in 1960 Alabama). It doesn’t even make up for its lack of skill by being as sexually exploitative as only the best bad gay films can be. Outright fail.
