Reinforces some of the worst stereotypes about gays
There are some nice moments and interesting performers, but the STORY is where this film fails. Trying to create depth and meaning out of things that are superficial should never have been attempted.
This film also laughs off several serious situations and that seemed like lazy writing from someone hiding shame behind humor. The tale would have been stronger had it called out the sugar daddy character for what he is.
Author Andrew Holleran penned a line that would have been golden in this film: "Don't expect me to be your fountain of youth."
The universality of this story is that it happens to women, too. Unfortunately the filmmakers missed that connection and the possibility of making this story a commentary on the selfish desires of privileged men.
