1.0 out of 5 stars A bad gay version of a forrest Gump story December 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I know that most gay movies are independent productions but why are so many of them so bad. You really have to suspend belief to believe that anyone could find the main character, as played by Matthew Montgomery, even vaguely attractive and want to marry him. He twitches and mugs and generally displays personal characteristics that would make most of us cringe....
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

1.0 out of 5 stars This mess may be one of the worst movies EVER! March 11, 2012
Format:DVD
I watch quite a few gay movies, and am normally willing to cut them a bit of slack. I bought this mostly on the strength of Mathew Montgomery being in the cast. I wish I had read the reviews first.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars what happened ? March 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What happened ? For years, I have enjoyed Matthew Montgomery as an actor. I have happily written glowing reviews of him. But, in this film he was horribly miscast and / or mis-directed. His over-acting a la Jerry Lewis and his endless facial mugging were just too much. Mind you, this whole film is a loser. The screenplay is all over the place and the film has no center. It goes off in a bunch of unsatisfying directions : romance, slapstick comedy, political, and more. Very little is believable, even when we are supposed to be serious.Most of the characters are either caricatures or downright unpleasant. The drag performer who sings the same song poorly over and over and who waxes philosophically got old in the very first minutes but then went on to be a major character in the film. This is truly one of the worst GLBT films in quite a while !

3.0 out of 5 stars Had promise, but this is mostly a muddled mess. January 8, 2012
Format:DVD
Playing against his usual "type" in gay films, Matthew Montgomery is Paul, a nerdy, fastidious gay man who has friends, a nice home, and his own ad agency, but no partner with whom to share it. After attending a lesbian wedding, and knowing that Prop 8 was on the horizon to stop same-sex marriages, Paul embarks on a misguided, frantic journey through speed dating, meeting guys through the internet (And, no, "FF" does not mean he's into fly fishing!) and trying way too hard to impress.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let The Cute Cover Suck You In.... December 29, 2011
Format:DVD
....Cause this just ain't what you think it's gonna be.

(( 2-STARS----An "I Don't Like It" Rating ))

So, let me be honest with you right up front here. I have NEVER been a
great fan of Matthew Montgomery. And despite 15 film roles, for me he
has never improved past the point of being an "average" actor. That,
and his appearance, as much as anything. There has always been
something a little bit "Ratso Rizzo" (for want of a kinder description)
about his facial characteristics. So there...now you know how shallow
I am.

At last...let's briefly get to the movie, itself. And by the way, it
is a film story of several subplots; in no way does it particularly
concentrate on Matthew's character and his idiotic attempts to land the
cute man of the cover. Playing an extremely unattractive Super-Geek,
the best that Montgomery can bring to the role is a
clinching...compressing...contortion of his lips and mouth (and, of
course, the supposed-to-be nerdish, black frame glasses). The mouth
exercising QUICKLY gets very old...at the same time making it quite
difficult to understand our lead. Worse, this is compounded by one of
the most terribly recorded soundtracks I have heard in years. I cannot
say enough bad about the original sound-man's work on this film....BUT,
Breaking Glass features should be especially ashamed to have their name
attached to such a poor sound release.

Finally, it may interest you that, out of the film's near 120 minute
running time, Matthew and his bride-to-be (or is it the other way
around) are TOGETHER for no more than an amazing 20 minutes of screen
time. Leaves a lot to be gotten done in those oh-so-interesting
subplots.

My very best advice for you: SAVE YOUR MONEY.
