Editorial Reviews

How far would you go to win back the love of your life? Perhaps send flowers, write poetry or even serenade that man of your dreams until he can take it no more? Paul, our hot but self-centered hero has other, more extreme ideas when sensitive hunk Brad drops him and begins dating another man. Not used to losing and determined to regain his love, Paul decides to pretend to have a life-threatening illness in what he sees as a foolproof method in ensuring Brad's return. But will it work or will the tangled web he weaves get him in hot water rather than in to the arms of his hot man? Populated by outrageous characters, this fun romantic comedy is a truly off the wall take on what one man would really do for love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't be too hard on this film February 3, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Yes, it is a bit corny, and flawed. Yes, it has a few minor weaknesses in the acting and in production. Yes, the story line is not even remotely realistic.

So what! It is a sweet, sexy love story that could have gone horribly wrong, given the subject matter. I mean, it is hard to make light of cancer and hard to make light of what the main character and his Doctor did, but if you suspend reality a bit and just go with it, you may just enjoy this film. I certainly did.

It had its funny moments throughout, and the two main characters are easy on the eyes.

To really enjoy this story, just don't take it too seriously, don't expect too much from it, but sit back and fall in love with falling in love. Do that and this movie is hit. I personally loved it and laughed several times, and found myself smiling throughout.

Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Love,love,loved it! December 23, 2011
By Valaria
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Finally, a romantic comedy with a gay couple; bout time. The dialogue was refreshing and funny. The lead actors are handsome, and well, hot. The woman who played the mother was fantastic - believable as Jewish mother. Plus, the little boy, he was a doll. I really enjoyed everything about the movie. It's a must see for the romantics at heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love and hate The Love Patient January 31, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I don't particularly like the main character or the story in general. However, it has decent acting, a few laugh-out-loud moments, good production quality, and a happy ending. So, as far as gay romantic comedies go, I say this one makes it into the green (but not by much).

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Patient needs more Love September 6, 2012
By Oliver
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Disappointed in yet another gay themed movie. With Hollywood brimming with gay writers, directors, and actors, why do we still get 'less than' from gay movies. The movie is built on a hoax of the most serious kind. The only serious actor was the bf who left the lead and yet came back to him in the end. YUCK. Little entertainment. Less annoying if you ignore the less than quality of the video, the less than acting, and the less than weak plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wacky - and with Ben Lutz, too April 21, 2012
By JakeDee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hilarious, totally wacky and, despite prim naysayers here at Amazon and IMDB, quite wonderful. And Sweet -- and there ain't nowhere near enough of that going 'round. Bought it sight unseen 'cause it starred Ben Lutz, who (a) is drop dead gorgeous IMHO, and (b) unquestionably had the funniest line in the whole movie of BITE MARKS (which I originally bought 'cause it had Windham Beacham in it).

Now, if some enterprising director would just put Ben Lutz and Barry Zito, the SF Giants' pitcher, in a romantic comedy together! (They look enough alike to be at least cousins. So since I was not bothered by FROM BEGINNING TO END, I think that would be really neat, and hot -- and never mind Barry's baseball statistics! I'd pay to see those two together as readily and happily as I go to AT&T Park to see Barry!!!!!

Enjoy this insane piece of fluff. Madcap, zany, sweet and, in places, really, really funny.

2.0 out of 5 stars A few reasons to hate "the love patient" February 21, 2012
Format:DVD
1. The whole idea of pretending having cancer to get your bf back (sick, especially for people, who experienced cancer in their families). Why not pretending being HIV+? That could be a "nice" story too:(
And the perfect bf who takes him back over and over again? Who in real world would be soooo naive and trust such egoist and mind-player again?
2. What is the message that the director put in the film? That cheating does pay off? That people without any morals are more likely to succeed? Or maybe the one that a lot of gay people are sociopath?
I know it was supposed to be just a comedy, but even then I expect something more from a motion picture than a few handsome bodies.
Anyway,
2. acting in 85% time of the film is really pathethic. The only parts I enjoyed were the characters of the old doc and the dumb Ted (playing not a bright person isn't all that difficult, is it?).
The rest of the cast members is wooden.
The only reason I highered my rating were the last 2 minutes of this film. A positive message that gays could also be foster parents.

Light-hearted bordering on mindless. As usual, the female characters get most of the funny lines and get to chew their way through the scenery.
