Just another of those gay versus the religous fundamentalist movies, not funny, not clever,badly acted and embarassing...
Hard to take gay cinema seriously when tripe like this keeps getting released. There must be better screenwriters out there than what is presented here. I refuse to believe that "Shelter and Latter days" are abnormalities of gay cinema...
Watched this as a feel good movie on Christmas Eve and it nearly made me toss my cookies
This movie goes in so many wrong, clumsy directions, that it's hard to get a handle on it. It tries to take place in some absurd realm like a John Waters film, it tries to be silly like a Pee Wee Herman film, it tries to be stumblingly funny like a Jerry Lewis film, and to be in the conventional world as well. It does NONE of this effectively. It is miserable. I felt uncomfortable for the decent actors who were in this. It was so bad that it rivals "Plan Nine From Outer Space", except that it can't even be unintentionally funny.
And WHY in the world is there a drag queen sound track and theme throughout this film? Take the worst drag queen portrayal you can imagine, combined with being strung-out, singing a slightly twisted version of "Is That All There Is?" because the producers wouldn't pay royalties to use the actual song, and you begin to get an idea of this miasma of a cheap film with little aspirations of being either cinema or parody.
I only wish that I had the time I've spent on this movie back. Move along. Nothing to see here. Don't waste your time.
Meanwhile, Paul's well-to-do parents had a fight, and his mother (who is more than a bit naive and recently donated a large sum of money to the Prop 8 campaign, because the kids in their commercial were cute), gets stranded for a time in a trucker's casino in the desert, where she hangs out with a drag queen. Paul's father goes chasing after his wife, but manages to get carjacked and roans the desert without his pants. And Paul has a big decision to make as to whether to take on a client who is involved in pushing through Prop 8.
I wish I could recommend this, as it does have its cute moments, but it is largely a muddled, overdone and unrealistic slapstick mess. Montgomery makes the transition from unrecognizable to annoying, with exaggerated facial expressions throughout. Director Billy Clift brings along Matthew Martin, who played the lead in his 2010 "Baby Jane" film, and her drag presence in this film is much overdone. Some minor sound problems and editing snafus are also evident, and this could have been a much better film if he cut about 20 minutes from its 120 minute run time, which would helpfully make it more cohesive. As is, I can give it just three stars out of five.
What a waste of money!
to Mr.Montgomery: please, watch films like "Regular guys", "Beautiful thing", "Pedale douce" or "I think I do" and maybe than you will realize how much hurt you have done to LBGT cinema!

A nice movie. Nerd meets hot guy. Doesn't know how to react, kinda blows it. The mother gets lost on the way to visit and spends time in a seedy motel with a drag queen. Read morePublished 2 months ago by James E. Casella Jr.
