Product Description

After a breakup, gay Parisian Jerome impulsively books a solo Christmas vacation to Los Angeles. Like many before him, he plans to pursue his secret dream to become a movie star and, of course, to find love along with fame and fortune!

Completely naïve about what he is getting into, Jerome nonetheless hooks up with some colorful locals, and stumbles headlong into an acting role. Nothing about Hollywood quite matches Jerome s fantasies, however, and his misadventures are both hilarious and touching.

Bright, funny, honest and utterly charming, Hollywood, Je T'aime is a stunning debut for Director Jason Bushman. Eric Debets shines as Jerome; his classic look and an amusing ease with his own awkwardness are evocative of Buster Keaton and Marcel Marceau. Cast includes Eric Debets, Jonathan Blanc, Diarra Kilpatrick, Michael Airington and Chad Allen (Save Me, Third Man Out, Shock to the System, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Our House

Review

Polished crowd-pleaser likely to rank among the year's more popular gay pics. Variety

Enough pleasing vignettes to win us over. . .the same tasty spirit as Woody Allen's many homages to Manhattan. . .Lead actor Debets has an appealing deadpan presence. The Hollywood Reporter

HOLLYWOOD, JE T AIME is delightfully funny, hugely entertaining and unlike anything you ve ever seen!
Frameline, SF Film Festival

Will make you fall in love with LA all over again. OUTFEST, LA Film Festival --Wolfe

Story line fun - characters delightful.
Dana Skolfield
A French gay man comes to LA, has a few experiences and meets a few people, most of whom aren't very pleasant, and then goes back home to Paris.

Romantic comedy? I didn't see much romance or comedy. "Will make you fall in love with LA all over again"? It made LA look depressing and dirty to me. "Hugely entertaining"? Mildly entertaining, somewhat boring.

Good cinematology, fine acting, interesting characters. But when the movie was finished, we looked at each other and said, "What was the point?" A French gay man comes to LA, has a few experiences and meets a few people, most of whom aren't very pleasant, and then goes back home to Paris. Hang on, it's a rollercoaster of emotions! NOT!

"Hilarious and touching" I didn't find anything hilarious, and the only thing touching was Jerome's innocence, or perhaps the sad, sad people he encountered. I can say I did enjoy the few nude scenes in the movie; they almost made it worthwhile.

Smarting from a hurtful breakup with his twinkish lover, 29 year old Parisian Jerome (Eric Debets) decides a change of scenery is needed, so he decides to pursue his dream of going to Hollywood and try to become an actor. He takes a room at a seedy Hollywood hostel, takes the bus to the beach, where he meets Ross (Chad Allen), a stoner who hangs out at the beach and introduces Jerome to someone who gets him an audition for a commercial. In the interim, Jerome befriends a tranny prostitute and, through her, meets an older, bitter drag queen who lets him stay in a room at her big house in Silverlake. Jerome samples the gay nightlife, plays at a sex club, has countless flashbacks imagining his ex Gilles is with him, and gets very disillusioned with the prospects of staying in the States.

The film shows the gritty side of Los Angeles and West Hollywood, and I give it credit for being brutally honest in showing how Americans are often not welcoming of people from foreign countries. I'm guessing the filmmaker was going for a "Wizard of Oz" effect in having the film change from Black&White to Color when he left Paris, but the film was poorly edited throughout, in my opinion. I thought the characters were poorly developed and came across rather bland, especially Debets' deadpan, emotionless delivery. Chad Allen is wasted in his role, but Michael Airington steals a few scenes as Jerome's drag queen landlady "Norma Desire." Unrated, but would likely be at least a heavy R for full frontal nudity and simulated sex. DVD extras include commentary, a brief featurette and a few short deleted scenes. I give the film three stars out of five.

Jason Bushman's 'Hollywood Je t'aime' is full of charm. The depiction of a French gay man coming to the world of Los Angeles is whimsical, poignant and funny. And as he traverses this new world, his outsider perspective, on a place I think I know so well, is often hilarious. The film reminded me of Truffaut with its subtle humanity, funny moments, and charm.

I loved it! I curled up on the sofa with a glass of wine and thoroughly enjoyed watching the eclectic mix of characters and this Hollywood story unfold.

Lovely little viewing movie. Jerome (Eric Debets) leaves France to live in L.A. Moves into a hostel, that doesn't work, meets a transsexual who introduces him to a Drag Queen who lets him live in a room in her house. With me so far? he goes to the beach (it is winter and even in Cali it is cold by the beach) and meets pot smoking Chad Allen. That is the thrust of the movie. The particulars...performances are terrific by the supporting cast. Moving, funny, cute or catty. The always sexy Chad Allen? I am such a huge fan of his. He is the confident and charming guy who takes a liking to Jerome...his best line to Jerome "you're French, you're sexy and I want to get in your pants" love that line, he's great! As for Eric Debets...his understated and very laid back almost "whatever happens" performance is right on. Fun movie (not laugh out loud) good story and likable characters make this one a good to see. Some very poignant moments too.

Four stars? Are you kidding me? This makes no sense until one notices that the few five-star ratings appear to have been made by the film's marketing department. The positive "reviews" have so clearly been taken from the film's promotional material. It's a good reminder of how easy it is to inflate an Amazon rating.

The film itself is fairly boring and simplistic. A gay Frenchman gets depressed with his life in Paris, so he decides to follow a lifelong dream and go to Hollywood--where he discovers (shocker!!) that life is just as depressing in California.

The movie's climactic, epiphanic line: "A sunny day isn't special when it happens every day."

Commence vomiting.

A type of movie you can watch once and that's it. I found nothing funny in the movie. Starting with a really depressing picture of Paris, through hostile welcome at the airport in U.S. (which is, unfortunately, very true), to the departure of the main character back to Paris, the film is quite sad.
I think what makes the movie something exceptional among others gay theme films is the acting quality. It is not bad, in some part very good indeed.
I cannot give more than 3 stars, 'cause I am not completely satisfied with what I got. Nevertheless, it was not a waste of time to see it.
