Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The course of true love, whatever kind September 11, 2001
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Gay Film August 27, 2001
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but I still bought the DVD January 1, 2002
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.

I had ordered the DVD of "All Over The Guy' on the strength of Richard Ruccolo. I loved him in '2guys and a girl' and was eager to see him in another role. Richard really breaks out of the sitcom mould in this movie - his characterisation of a chain smoking, heavy drinking masculine gay man is nothing short of breathtaking. The film itself is wonderful. It really delves into the difficulties of gay relationships in todays' society and how hard it is to meet 'Mr Right'. The onscreen dynamic between Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo is excellent - you really are drawn into the complexities of their relationship. A special note should be made of the DVD. Unlike many smaller budget, indi films, this one is packed with features such as an audio commentary, deleted scenes, storyboards, interviews, trailers and a short film made by the director that will have you glued to the screen for hours. A wonderful movie that I wholeheartedly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but Richard Ruccolo is fantastic! February 8, 2002
Format:DVD
Whenever I buy gay-themed DVDs of the romantic comedy genre, I always tell myself that I'm watching the film to be entertained and not get stressed by the topic. This is exactly my feeling for "All Over The Guy".
I must admit that Dan Bucatinsky (Eli) is not my idea of a perfect lead, but hey, he's a perfect foil for the oh-so abrasive character of Richard Ruccolo (Tom). The chemistry was off-center at the start of the film, but they eventually worked their way towards becoming a delightful pair of on-and-off lovers who just couldn't get their relationship off the ground.
Richard Ruccolo is a revelation in this movie. He is so natural as a straight-acting gay man without giving any hints that he is uncomfortable performing the rudiments of the role, such as a few kissing scenes with Dan Bucatinsky.
The script (written as well by Bucatinsky) is so witty and gay without resorting to excessive melodramatics. The icings on the cake are the cameos of Lisa Kudrow and Christina Ricci who add some glitz to an otherwise "relatively less popular" cast. Kudos to Doris Roberts who account for wonderful scenes as an AIDS-clinic receptionist.
