| None of the characters' motivations make ANY sense.
A young, good-looking, and inexplicably well-off gay male couple occupy a multi-million dollar unit in the historic Duboce triangle district of San Francisco -- they also own a sailboat and a car as well. The couple decide to host some strangers from Italy, who turn out to be a pair of bratty and insufferable teenagers.

After insulting their hosts immediately upon meeting, the two teens continue to disrespect said hosts by bickering like petulant children. Despite this, the gay couple chooses to not only be generous with their home, but also their time, because despite being young, gay, good-looking and rich in San Francisco, these two men apparently have no lives or friends, allowing them plenty of time to entertain their ungrateful and annoying guests.

The story gets even weirder and further stretches reality. One of the men decides to quit his job in order to pursue his passion of riding horses, which is made possible because his partner agrees to "pick up more hours" as a realtor in order to compensate. This is also perfect timing as their freeloading guests extend their stay from the originally intended few days to an entire month without anyone questioning it.

One half of the bratty teens suddenly falls for the other half, but the other half started off being a virginal prude who then falls for one of the gay hosts she originally deemed a "pervert".

Honestly, none of this convoluted nonsense makes any sense at all. The only thing that made this movie worth watching for me was seeing shots of beautiful Rome and San Francisco.
