Plot Outline: I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's a well-made and entertainingcomedy. It was my favorite film at the festival (out of 10 that I saw).Yes... as others have noted, a lot of the comedy stems from a group ofmajor characters fitting a checklist of the most common gaystereotypes. But it's all done in a way that's non-offensive,lighthearted, well-written, well-acted, and just funny as heck. I thinkyou have to want to be offended to have a problem with it. And the maincharacter (Ecki) is about as "normal" as can be. (...not to mentionadorable and lovable.) Anyway, the film-making was excellent. The pacewas perfect, and the plot struck a good balance of levity; it wasserious enough that I cared about the characters, but stayed upbeat andfun as well.Highly recommended.
