5.0 out of 5 stars A gay film version of Friends
In some ways, this film reminded me of the sit-com "Friends" when I first watched it. It does have some significant differences, but it still centers on a group of people who are variously in and out of relationships with each other and outsiders, some of whom make it into the group, and others of whom do not.

One of the leading characters is Dennis, who is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Communal Look at WeHo Boys Yields Laughs, Sighs and Some Raised Eyebrows
First-time director/screenwriter Greg Berlanti has done a facile, intermittently entertaining job in looking at a group of twenty-something gay friends in West Hollywood. I am grateful that that he saw no need to make grand statements about AIDS, gay marriage or any number of pertinent social issues to the gay community. Instead, the 2000 movie feels a bit like a...

2.0 out of 5 stars Felt The Void, April 11, 2001
By 
Samuel (El Paso, Texas United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Broken Hearts Club (DVD)
There I was prepared for an evening of cinematic viewing with my better half sitting next to me. All systems were go, sodas, popcorn, hard candy, silence in the house. The cast seemed great, the context hit the spot, and so we pressed the button: "PLAY" - - - quick quips, one liners, boom, boom, boom - then came the story. In a word 'weak'. The comparison to 'Steel Magnolias' isn't remotely possible in a sain world. One never sees a true bond, a complete character, or any of that glue that would hold this bunch together. Something went 'amiss'. Everyone one did his best with what he got to do, there just wasn't enough there. When it ended, I was left wanting all the story I never got. Bummer!

I think this is a fun movie to watch. You get to enjoy some very popular actors play gay roles. And the sub-story lines make this something that is not boring.

2.0 out of 5 stars It should have been better, February 24, 2002
This review is from: The Broken Hearts Club (DVD)
I had heard about this film for several years, and was quite looking forward to seeing it. After all, just to be able to gawk at Dean Cain is worth the price of admission. However, this film made so many wrong turns that it was left unsalvagable. The writing is amateurish, and every character is a cliche. At one point, the guys are even sitting around a table complaining that "they should make a movie about guys like us!"
It is a shame, because a lot of money and a lot of talent went into the making of this film, and it offers us absolutely nothing new. No one talks like this in real life, and every issue that they grapple with is done so on such a hypothetical level as not to be believed...

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Broken Hearts Club (DVD)
I think every gay man just coming out should see this film. It is poignant, moving, and quite realistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS AND CLEVER, October 16, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Broken Hearts Club (DVD)
Could any movie possibly address the issue of relationships (or lack there of) in the homosexual culture and better? NO! The Broken Hearts Club is hysterical and very cleverly written. It uses gay slang...showing definitions between scene changes. I just thought it was amazing! It's a must see. Prepare to laugh.
