Genre - Comedy, No Way
- Benjamin review by AA
one of the dullest, most boring film, I have had to watch in years, a complete waste of a rental. After about the first 15 minutes I was finding it very hard to stay focused to what I was supposed to be watching, was so lamentable!

Truly dreadful unfunny, twee, gay fantasy romance
- Benjamin review by PV
I have to agree with all the poor reviews - this is an awful, amateurish film. It's as bad as the end of year art shows it parodies - that was the only bit of this where I even smiled. It's just over an hour yet feels so much longer because it is so very dull.
I assume it was made coz Simon Amstell has some rich and famous film industry mates. Just shows what a mistake cronyism can be then.
I like Simon Amstell as a presenter and also GRANDMA'S HOUSE a BBC2 sitcom.
I suspect this whole idea, a rather limp and twee gay fantasy, may have worked better as a gentle BBC2 late night sitcom.
I suppose some young gay guys coming out may relate to it. No-one else will. And even for them, no-one gets naked much.
The lead actor is a mumbleton who does not seem to be acting.
Truly awful, and so trendy it's disappeared up its own Hoxton hole somewhere in its body...
For a decent gay romance watch ANOTHER COUNTRY maybe or BEAUTIFUL THING. Not this.
1.5 stars rounded up to 2, solely on account of the music and half-decent French boy performer who is clearly posh Paris stock with a first name like Phoenix.
