This is a very funny and very clever film based on a true story.
However, co-director John Requa said a very idiotic thing in the bonus featurette- "It's not about being gay. It's about two people who just happen to love each other, and one of them is a con man. It's not gay."
Well, moron, the "two people who just happen to love each other" are both men. Make no mistake people- this movie is gay, because it's about the relationship between these 2 gay men.
I really hate how Hollywood and directors try to whitewash a gay-themed movie they've made because they're terrified no one will pay to see a gay film. That's not only insulting to the men whose lives the film is based on, but it's insulting to the actors' performances, lgbt audiences who might want to see the film (a big demographic), and it's saying all audiences are too dumb to make their own decisions and have to be tricked. Ang Lee did the same thing when he made Brokeback Mountain. Why make a gay film and then say it's not really gay?
Aside from that, it's a great film with excellent performances.
If you have a problem with gay men, pass over it. It's Gay.
