A group of old college friends work through their long-standing sexual tensions when they reunite for a wedding in this comedy-drama. Bob (Alexis Arquette), a student at George Washington University, has a mad crush on his buff, beautiful roommate, Brendan (Christian Maelen). Brendan senses the attraction, but rejects Bob violently during a play wrestling match that goes a little too far. A few years later, the young men's mutual friends -- Matt (Jamie Harrold) and Carol (Lauren Velez) -- decide to tie the knot, and the old gang reassembles. TV writer Bob brings along his conceited soap-star boyfriend, Sterling (Tuc Watkins). Brendan comes dateless, but old flame Sarah (Marianne Hagan) -- now a conservative senator's aide -- puts the moves on him. Meanwhile, their friend Eric (Guillermo Diaz) vacillates between hooking up with long-lost lady friend Beth (Maddie Corman) or with the nubile sister of the bride. During the wedding reception, Brendan corners Bob and confesses that he, too, is now gay -- and that he's in love with Bob. This doesn't sit well with the newly self-sufficient Bob, who's finally found a backbone and doesn't want to relive painful college memories. But with stick-in-the-mud Sterling around to remind him that his new life isn't exactly perfect, Bob soon finds himself alone in a hotel room with the object of his youthful affection. The debut feature from writer/director Brian Sloan, I Think I Do was produced by Lane Janger, a fellow participant in the Boys Life anthology series. Janger would go on to cast Guillermo Diaz in his own debut feature, Just One Time. Actress/singer Marni Nixon has a cameo as Carol's wise old Aunt Alice -- her first screen role since appearing in 1965's The Sound of Music. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

The film introduces us to a group of college friends (gay, straight, and closeted) during their senior year at Georgetown University and then jump-forwards five years later to their reunion at one of the couple's wedding. The plot is already described in many of the reviews on line already. Suffice to say the interwoven themes are about unrequited love, friendship, loyalty, honestly, and finding one's self-idenity and place in the word. The casting- PERFECT!- from the six main characters to all the supporting actors and actresses in this movie. The chemistry created by this ensemble is rarely matched or equaled in films today.
My two favorite characters in the film? Carol and Brendan. Carol, the bride, gets all the good lines! Her facial and body language in her delivery only adds to my enjoyment and laughter. Brendan delivers one of the consistent and enjoyable roles from making me laugh to making me cry. The final scene with Brendan (and Bob) at the train station has me in tears everytime. Bravo Christian and Lauren!
The script is border-line genius in so many of the lines- serious and funny. To top it all off is having the Partridge Family songs, which at times almost seem like they were made for this movie, pop in and out during the film.
This film is why we all go to the movies... to laugh, have fun, and maybe walk away a better person having taken away a lesson(s) about life philosophies. A VERY enjoyable film from beginning to end that won't disappoint. I promise!
