This mistaken identity comedy
wobbles badly between cringe inducing satire and a true romantic’s need to find
signs of intelligent life in the Southland’s craven boy ghetto. Blaine
(the sweet/savvy Nicholas Downs) is a low self-esteem afflicted, almost pretty
boy who’s fishing for love in the oil infested waters of Web chat rooms.
Blaine’s waking hours are spent spinning a poetic personal column for a nitwit
gay rag. An on-line chat with a guitar strumming Texan -- David Loren mimes a
young Andy Griffith -- convinces Blaine that Xander’s his soul mate. Director
J.C. Calciano’s smartest conceit has Xander mistaking Blaine for his sex pig
roomy, Cameron. An achingly sincere climax will either convince you that this
is the new Big Eden or send you out to rent the real deal: Jim Fall’s
delayed gratification classic, Trick.
Features include director/cast
commentary’ “dating advice,” cast interviews, deleted scenes, auditions and
