I (obviously) ignored the several rather strongly-worded negative reviews because it seemed like a lot of people like this one, but maybe I should have paid attention. I'm not sure whether to blame the acting or the writing. Much of the movie came off as stilted and fake, and my first thought was that the actors didn't have the chops to pull the story off...but the longer I watched, the more I started to wonder whether at least part of the problem was that the writer(s) aren't good at natural dialogue, and the actors themselves just didn't have good enough material to work with. Regardless, though, there was an ever-present sense of "real people don't sound like that when they talk to each other."
It's too bad; some of the more minor characters weren't badly done at all. I liked the parents, for instance. But the main lead - Eric Aragon, who plays Paul - kind of stunk.
It wasn't just stilted dialogue, either; the plot had some pretty big problems...the biggest probably being the fact that Paul and Gavin met and fell in love in a matter of hours. Can that sort of thing happen in real life? Sure, I suppose. (Or, at least infatuation can come on that suddenly.) But for a movie to be successful, it needs to not only tell a story, but sell it. We viewers need to buy into it, and I'm afraid that I simply wasn't invested in the relationship working out.
There were other things off, too. Paul goes into a big confession about how he's an alcoholic, and how he was all screwed up from being adopted, and none of that rang true at all. Or, rather, I've known people who overshare, but I certainly don't go all moony-eyed over them when they do.Read more ›
