Product Description

A contemporary romantic comedy about the universal quest for that one true love. All Over the Guy centers on an unlikely pair of two twenty-somethings, Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) and Tom (Richard Ruccolo), who are thrown together by their respective best friends. They're both looking for 'the one,' but don't recognize it when they find it. They do everything they can to not fall for each other, stumbling over their own fears, family dysfunctions and foolish bouts of self-sabotage. Their comedy of errors rolls on, with the two oblivious to what everyone else can clearly see is in their hearts. Ultimately its' in the small moments of truth-the talk among trusted friends and the fear between new lovers-that the two find their way to a love that will last.

"Oh, I hate that movie!" The outburst of contempt the characters feel toward the clichés of In and Out announces All Over the Guy as a gay romantic comedy with a difference. That difference, apparently, is that gay men can suffer the same neurotic commitment problems and kooky conflicts on the way to true love as straight couples. Prissy control freak Dan Bucatinsky (who also scripted) and macho alcoholic Richard Ruccolo recover from a train wreck of a blind date to find common ground in traumatic childhood stories, and spend the rest of the film breaking up between smart remarks. There's a snap to Bucatinsky's dialogue and an entertaining lilt to Julie Davis's direction, but the characters never become more than caricatures. Token straight couple Sasha Alexander and Adam Goldberg are far more fun, and Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow make memorable cameos. --Sean Axmaker

A straight couple (Sasha Alexander and Adam Goldberg) set up their respective best friends, both gay (Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo) on a blind date. While the straight romance goes swimmingly along the gay couple lurches from crisis to crisis. Dan Bucatinsky, the star, also wrote and produced this romantic comedy-drama. There are many side-splitting scenes and great one-liners--the two men's disastrous first date, where they seem to have absolutely nothing in common, is especially on-target. The more serious scenes between Bucatinsky and Ruccolo, as they start to realize that they _do_ love one another after all, don't work as well, the dialogue lapsing into clichés. There is also too much glib pop psychological explanation as to why the two guys are so dysfunctional with regard to relationships. Still, with the talents of actors such as Lisa Kudrow, Cristina Ricci and Doris Roberts in supporting roles, this movie kept me continually laughing and entertained for the duration.

Format: DVD
Yes, I really liked this movie; it is, in the end, another addition to the feel-good gay relationship movie library. I thought the actors were very good and mostly believable; I enjoyed seeing a gay couple exhibited as having the same problems in their relationships as straight couples, I enjoyed the straight sidekicks--without whom the movie would not have been complete.
But then, on the other hand, we have another movie that is set in the la-la land of "all gay guys are good looking;" "all gay guys have unlimited witty one-liners;" "all gay guys have a best friend who is straight;" "all gay guys have their own great apartments surrounded by great neighbors;" and, the one I love the most, "gay relationships blossom out of no shared interests between the partners." So as a date movie I think it's great, and I own the DVD, because I liked it that much. But then there's that undeniably present and depressing feeling we'll all get when we leave the theater of "why can't I have that?" The answer, of course, is that "that" only exists... on the screen. Which is fine at the movies, that's what movies are for. In the end, while the script could have used some work to make the characters more real, I thought the cast delivered beautifully.

It's great to see more and more fine portrayals of the gay community be presented so eloquently and thoughtfully on the silver screen. Last year's excellent "Broken Hearts Club" exemplified itself as a pristine presentation of a group of gay twentysomethings living in California. That story was touching, funny, and brilliantly well-crafted. Now we have "All Over the Guy." This film is a bit more intense (as it is funny) as two handsome gay men come to terms in establishing a relationship through the turbulent waters of dating and occasionally "running into one another" through their mutual heterosexual friends. This fine film stars Richard Ruccolo (of ABC's now cancelled "Two Guys & A Girl") and real-life gay screenwriter Dan Bucatinsky. Both leads are believable as they attempt at finding meaning with their on-again, off-again relationship. Their heterosexual counterparts (the ever-funny Adam Goldberg, and the beautiful, talented Sasha Alexander) in the film are just as funny and truly supportive of their gay friends' quest for monogamy, intimacy, and succeeding in becoming boyfriends, especially after Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) expresses his love for hunky-but-alcoholic Tom (the gorgeous Richard Ruccolo). "All Over the Guy" is not only a perfect gay date film, but enjoyable for its wonderful story and memorable cast. How ironic that when I went to go see this film with a large group of friends, some of them wound up expressing their true feelings for one another (to those guys they've liked secretly for sometime), that couples were spawned out of years old friendships. How amazing! Wish it was me, though. Regardless, the film is worth rushing out for to see it!

Format: DVD
This has gotta be one of the most under-rated and "under-known" US-made gay movies out there (well, maybe not under-rated since nearly 80% of the reviews here are 4- and 5-Star). But how could it have gotten by without having kicked up more dust?

Each time I watch it I enjoy it more, each time I watch it I appreciate it more. It becomes like picking up and studying a finely crafted object; it suddenly hits you: hey, there're no seams here, no rough joints; its finish is wonderfully even. How'd they do this? And then you think: Well, Goldberg and Alexander......sure, they've been around for awhile and are truly spot-on here, but.....Bucatinsky...who is this guy??!!?? (only the one who crafted/wrote this play-to-movie, of course).....and'd all this acting depth come from of a sudden? And however in the world did one apparently straight guy actor playing against one apparently gay guy actor get this so right? Well, the answer has to be, of course, that they understood if it's about love, it just doesn't matter whether 2 guys, or guy and gal, or 2 gals are the focus. These actors obviously came to realize that, and so it became easy for them to act that. (Not something that two other guys, named Ennis & Jack, were ever fortunate enough to learn in time, eh?).

Well, on to a bit of what this movie's all about. A pure romantic comedy this is NOT.........perhaps, more correctly, it's a "dramedy." After all, how many mainstream gay movies have you seen in which a character utters such descriptively jarring words (see title of this review) after a sexual act that's earlier taken place? Yes, this movie's for real and is very much a real life movie.
