When Caleb's gay roommate Kyle reveals that quite a lot of straight woman bed with gay men (ostensibly to convert them), nice guy Caleb considers going gay to improve his unsatisfactory heterosexual sex life. He shortly thereafter falls for Gwen, whom he meets at a party, but she's got her own sexual frustrations going. She's only attracted to gay men while instantly dismissive of any straight guy approaching her, such as Caleb. Kyle quickly moves on the Caleb-is-gay campaign to benefit them, but his motives aren't entirely altruistic. He longs for Marc, a desirable hottie who's Gwen's gay roommate. Unfortunately for Kyle, Marc only has eyes for Caleb. Kyle's plan: Get Caleb to date Marc so it'll bring Caleb closer to Gwen while putting himself (Kyle) in proximity with Marc (their true targets). But as Gwen starts putting the moves on her roommate's new boyfriend...

User Review

The overall effect was a very funny and enjoyable film!

Rating: 9/10

I saw this film as part of the BFI's London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival on tour and was very glad I went to see it. No one in the audience seemed to care that this film was a little (or more than just a little) cheesy in places. The overall effect was a very funny and enjoyable film.

I recently watched the actor comments that went with About Adam and the point was made then that there had been many a film set in Ireland about the famine and about the troubles and that About Adam was refreshing in that it was a comedy set in Dublin which the young people of Dublin would recognize.

The same can be said about this film. There have been many (and many worthy) films about HIV, Queer Bashing, loneliness, exploitation etc. There should be room for both sorts of film but I feel that the output to-date has been rather out of balance.

It is good to go and watch an enjoyable up-beat film, which actually had the audience laughing out loud. There have been other comedies but this was better than most I have seen.
