While the movie is certainly not a slick affair (in the extras, Bright and Jones joke about how their budget was in "the thousands"), it does do several things the creators promise:
No tragic gay man dies of AIDS.
No screaming queen is running around disrupting things.
No men are just straight-acting guys claiming they're gay.
And most importantly - All gay male characters are actually played by gay men.
The acting is not going to get any Academy Award nominations, but that isn't why you're going to enjoy this. "Angora Ranch" is a delight for the many things it isn't. Non-hyperactive, not bitter or angry, not political (other than the general wink at gay marriage) and not aimed at the tweaker circuit coming-out crowd. This is the kind of movie I am comfortable showing to friends with dinner, and, I am going to project, feel comfortable with repeat viewings.Read more ›
The photography and production values are surprisingly good for a bare bones indie film shot directly on video. However, I didn't have to check the IMDB credits to know the cast was inexperienced, as EVERY actor in the film came off like a night of amateur theatre tryouts, with horrible overacting, emoting as if each line was Shakespeare, and sometimes even looking at the camera instead of the character they are speaking with. Thomas Romano as Justin was cute, but didn't really fit his character, and it is amazing that not ONE of the main characters in rural Texas had any trace of an accent. The screenplay (by director Paul Bright, who also played Jack) is sweet and charming, but more than a bit overdone and contrived. (However, it could have been worse; the extras divulge that the original concept was for this to be a MUSICAL!) DVD has "making of" featurette and some candid shots. Rate it 3 stars out of 5.

No, this is not a high quality movie - it's pretty low budget, much of the acting is poor, and the script is pretty simple. But there was still a thread of romantic cuteness to it. Read morePublished on June 5, 2013 by LS

Though this movie has a low budget and some flaky characters, it succeeds in being entertaining, especially if you like bunnies, rural settings and plenty of kookiness. Read morePublished on May 13, 2011 by Book House
