Bil’s rating (out of 5): BBB
USA, 1998. Revolutionary Eye LLC. Screenplay by Tommy O’Haver. Cinematography by Mark Mervis. Produced by David Moseley. Music by Alan Ari Lazar. Production Design by Franco-Giacomo Carbone. Costume Design by Julia Bartholomew. Film Editing by Jeff Betancourt.
Playful and colourful comedy about a photographer (Sean Hayes, pre-Will and Grace fame) who falls obsessively in lust with a poster-boy waiter (Brad Rowe), but has no idea if the boy bats for his team or not.
He hangs out with him at parties, they become friends, Hayes becomes fixated, and follows the young man to Catalina where he’s been offered a modeling job. Along the way, our hero has many loveable friends, sees a few drag shows and makes sure to get personal enough to endear us to him completely.
Genuine feeling between the characters and a recognizable look at the complications of relationships based more on curiousity and pride than actual love makes the film well worth seeing. Look for a cameo by Andy Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn.
