Editorial Reviews

How far would you go to win back the love of your life? Perhaps send flowers, write poetry or even serenade that man of your dreams until he can take it no more? Paul, our hot but self-centered hero has other, more extreme ideas when sensitive hunk Brad drops him and begins dating another man. Not used to losing and determined to regain his love, Paul decides to pretend to have a life-threatening illness in what he sees as a foolproof method in ensuring Brad's return. But will it work or will the tangled web he weaves get him in hot water rather than in to the arms of his hot man? Populated by outrageous characters, this fun romantic comedy is a truly off the wall take on what one man would really do for love.

Yes, it is a bit corny, and flawed. Yes, it has a few minor weaknesses in the acting and in production. Yes, the story line is not even remotely realistic.

So what! It is a sweet, sexy love story that could have gone horribly wrong, given the subject matter. I mean, it is hard to make light of cancer and hard to make light of what the main character and his Doctor did, but if you suspend reality a bit and just go with it, you may just enjoy this film. I certainly did.

It had its funny moments throughout, and the two main characters are easy on the eyes.

To really enjoy this story, just don't take it too seriously, don't expect too much from it, but sit back and fall in love with falling in love. Do that and this movie is hit. I personally loved it and laughed several times, and found myself smiling throughout.

Enjoy

Finally, a romantic comedy with a gay couple; bout time. The dialogue was refreshing and funny. The lead actors are handsome, and well, hot. The woman who played the mother was fantastic - believable as Jewish mother. Plus, the little boy, he was a doll. I really enjoyed everything about the movie. It's a must see for the romantics at heart.

I don't particularly like the main character or the story in general. However, it has decent acting, a few laugh-out-loud moments, good production quality, and a happy ending. So, as far as gay romantic comedies go, I say this one makes it into the green (but not by much).

Hilarious, totally wacky and, despite prim naysayers here at Amazon and IMDB, quite wonderful. And Sweet -- and there ain't nowhere near enough of that going 'round. Bought it sight unseen 'cause it starred Ben Lutz, who (a) is drop dead gorgeous IMHO, and (b) unquestionably had the funniest line in the whole movie of BITE MARKS (which I originally bought 'cause it had Windham Beacham in it).

Now, if some enterprising director would just put Ben Lutz and Barry Zito, the SF Giants' pitcher, in a romantic comedy together! (They look enough alike to be at least cousins. So since I was not bothered by FROM BEGINNING TO END, I think that would be really neat, and hot -- and never mind Barry's baseball statistics! I'd pay to see those two together as readily and happily as I go to AT&T Park to see Barry!!!!!

Enjoy this insane piece of fluff. Madcap, zany, sweet and, in places, really, really funny.

Disappointed in yet another gay themed movie. With Hollywood brimming with gay writers, directors, and actors, why do we still get 'less than' from gay movies. The movie is built on a hoax of the most serious kind. The only serious actor was the bf who left the lead and yet came back to him in the end. YUCK. Little entertainment. Less annoying if you ignore the less than quality of the video, the less than acting, and the less than weak plot.

What a wonderfully cute and charming movie! I first saw Benjamin Lutz in The Men Next Door, and was excited to find another gem like this that showcased his acting ability and charm and, let's face it, those amazingly handsome good looks. It was nice to see him take the lead in this clever little comedy. It is a welcome addition to my movie collection!

It's been a few days since I rented this and I still can't get over how horrible it was on so many levels. The plot is just dumb, for one...but in the days since I watched it I'm actually very disturbed by the fact that someone actually made a movie about a guy faking cancer to get attention. I actually liked the main actor in another movie he's in (the one where he plays a guy who ends up dating a guy who is also dating his father). That's why I took a chance on "the love patient". Very few gay movies are "good" in the sense that they are well-made or well-written...but this is honestly the first movie in a while that I've seen that made me want to take a shower afterwards.

I still can't get over how horrible it was for this guy to fake having cancer and put people through the emotional terrorism of that. And nobody really had that big of a problem with him doing this, which is disturbing.

I wish I had not watched this, but what was seen cannot be unseen at this point.
