"All Over The Guy" is a contemporary romantic comedy about the quest to find the "one" when "the one" doesn't know he's the "one." It explores the unlikely pairing of two 20-somethings thrown together by their respective best friends in hopes of igniting their own romance. They do everything they can to NOT fall in love, but finally they overcome the dysfunction of their parents and surrender to their hearts.
Opposites attract in this romantic comedy about two very different gay men and their search for true love. Eli (Dan Bucatinsky, who wrote the screenplay based on his stage production) is a cute, neurotic X-Files addict whose favorite film is Gone With the Wind. When his straight best friend and next-door neighbor Brett (Adam Goldberg, of Saving Private Ryan) falls in love with Jackie (Sasha Alexander, from TV's “Dawson's Creek”), Eli is set up with Jackie's hunky best friend, Tom (Richard Ruccolo, of TV's “Two Guys and a Girl”.) However, whereas Eli is commitment oriented, Tom claims to be only looking for a good time. From their disastrous first date, through a tentative romance, to periods of not speaking to each other, Tom and Eli try to get close but are often foiled by their own insecurities. The film amusingly flips back and forth between Eli and Tom recounting their relationship to strangers, each trying to believe that they are "all over the guy." Director Julie Davis coaxes wonderful performances out of her attractive cast, and Bucatinsky's witty screenplay features some great, fast-talking dialogue. Furthermore, as a favor to executive producer and lover Dan Bucatinsky's partner, Don Roos The Opposite of Sex), Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow contribute memorable cameos, as well as Andrea Martin as Eli's overbearing mother (who’s not averse to leaving rather graphic messages about testicular self-examination on her son's answering machine). Predictable but still one of my favourite gay romances. A real feelgood movie. The characters are lovable, dialogue is just great. It just gets better each time... Romantic, funny and even sexy!
