The basic idea of the film is that a brother and sister fall for the same woman. That would make for a decently funny and interesting film. Unfortunately, that idea is abandoned half way through so the director can solely focus on Heather Grahamís characterís sexuality. It takes over 45 minutes for her to accept sheís gay. Meanwhile, the rest of the characters in the story are left to fend for themselves and any resemblance of an intriguing story is out the window.
One of the problems with that is Ms. Graham. Since the fantastic BOOGIE NIGHTS, sheís managed to stink up every movie sheís been in. Thatís not to say her co-stars are that much better. Bridget Moynahan looks way out of her element by actually having more than three lines in a movie and Tom Cavanagh has only one role (ED) in his repertoire and itís getting pretty old.
I didnít expect much from this film and therefore I wasnít disappointed, but Iím still frustrated at the way it was done. Granted, it does have some heartfelt moments that are actually well done, but theyíre too few and far between. Itís really two separate movies and the confused-girl-coming-out-of-the-closet has been done before. They had a chance to make a genuinely interesting film that happened to have a gay lead character and instead they took the easy way out and the result is a lousy film.
