USA, 2010Screenplay by Cinematography by Produced by Devin Hamilton, Ron Smith.  Music by Costume Design by Film Editing by Devin Hamilton.  Podcast: Bad Gay Movies.

Ronnie Kerr writes and stars in this zero-budget romantic comedy, though how much effort he puts into either position is debatable.  He plays a lonely singleton who is looking for Mr. Right and has to endure a series of painful bad first dates before his dream walks right by him, literally: a handsome jogger who passes his house in the neighbourhood turns out to return our hero’s interest and they go on a date.  Their success as a couple is quickly put to the test, however, when it turns out that Prince Charming isn’t interested in being monogamous and our weepy, perpetually whiny hero demands undying fidelity.  Painfully bad cinematography on low quality digital video, and settings that all appear as if one house is being used for every location that the film takes place in, are just where your problems with this film begin.  Beyond that, we have to deal with the fact that it attempts humour that is never funny and has an obnoxious lead character who never justifies the high standards he holds everyone around him to (or why he’s in such a rush to get a boyfriend for that matter, he acts like he’s racing against the clock and we don’t know why).  Skip it.
