Characters not developed so appear shallow.
Coleman B. Wiseman
Acting was ok at best about what you would expect for a low budget film of this type.
Robert M. Krupa
Not terrible, but really not particularly good either.

The Wishmakers is a comedy-drama about three gay men on their quest for love and success. It's not a great movie, but it is charming and has many attractive men in its cast. Drew Droege is only in three scenes, but he steals all of them and plays the funniest character with a voice that sounds like a muppet. There is brief nudity, but there should have been more. I guess the Eating Out series has spoiled me as it has set the bar so high for gay comedies. Lots of nudity, lots of laughs. The Wishmakers has neither of those things, but it is fairly entertaining just the same.

Ben, a dancer who recently reconciled the fact that he is gay, moves to West Hollywood to join two friends from college: Jason, a young man (and budding alcoholic) with limited talent who wants to be a star, and Corey, an androgynous young loner who works as a personal assistant for an eccentric former TV actress (played by Sally Kirkland). Finding work as a pilates and yoga instructor, Ben tries meeting guys through online ads, sex parties, and tries to get closer to another dancer he met at one of his classes, but nothing seems to be going as planned. Meanwhile, Jason sets his sights on a boyfriend who can help his career goals.

A somewhat bitter, but mostly realistic, look at the gay dating hell that can be WeHo, but an otherwise positive story in which the guys adapt to their circumstances and achieve happiness. Acting is capable and mostly amusing, despite some trite dialogue. The film's direction seems a bit disjointed in parts, including a rather lengthy dance sequence at its conclusion. Overall, I give it three stars out of five. Brief nudity, sexual situations, would likely be a PG-13. DVD has no extras other than chapter stops and some trailers.

Less than I expected. This movie could have been a bit more engaging. Script was a bit choppy and dialogue less than convincing.

I watched this indie comedy at the suggestion of a gay friend and enjoyed it knowing it was an indie film and was in an underserviced niche.
Each of the actors had some great moments on screen.
We made a little mixed-crowd party on a Thursday night with good food, good drinks, good friends and a good movie!

This movie is full of strangeness and yet it tells some truth. I really wouldn't stick with it though. It's not worth your time. I will say the pothead guru was both funny and informative

The plot was very jumpy and took a while to understand. There were no scene transitions. Acting was ok at best about what you would expect for a low budget film of this type.

Story line was good, acting was ok. Better than most of the films in this genre on amazon. Good for a boring night alone.

I got a little lost in this film with the to-ing and fro-ing that went on scene by scene. It seemed to me that there was a lack of a coherent storyline or something missing. The film was easy watching and certainly not threatening, just that I wonder what it was the actors were trying to tell? It was OK.
