All Over The Guy Review


Excellent
All Over the Guy doesn't tackle the issue of homosexuality, it simply accepts that its characters are gay. And it's refreshing to see homosexual relationships and straight relationships treated equally. This isn't another one of those annoying gay rights movies -- it just wants to have fun.

Screenwriter Dan Bucantinsky -- who also stars in and produced the film -- has a lot of fun with his script. The ingenious dialogue occurs in quick, humorous spurts.

All Over The Guy Review


OK

If gay men were allowed to kiss on TV -- I mean really kiss -- a frivolous but passably entertaining sitcom flick like "All Over the Guy" probably would have -- probably should have -- become network series instead of a movie. Think a more sexually active "Will and Grace."

This two-perspective, romantic comedy dissection of a relationship's rise-and-fall is packed with sitcom stars living through sitcom conflicts while plucky sitcom soft rock guitar plays incidentally on the soundtrack. And you know how, after sitcoms have been on the air too long, they'll turn oh-so-poignant from time to time, having some sadness befall a character the writers hope we've come to love? "All Over the Guy" does that too.

These are not complaints, per se. This is a spirited and reliably funny movie. But it just feels so workaday, like a sitcom in its fifth season, that nothing much about it stands out.
