I wouldn't say it was the worst movie EVER. I mean, that's a really big statement. I've seen pretty worse movies -- and this one at least was entertaining. I'll agree with you that it was unnatural, very much so -- Gray's attraction to Charlie was overplayed and out of nowhere, and Heather Graham was plain bad (except for the pre-Charlie scenes and the last two minutes, in which she was adorable), but it had lovely photography and music and Rachel Shelley (best thing of the movie, if you ask me) and, well, while I wouldn't recommend it I wouldn't tell people not to watch it, because it wasn't a waste of time for me -- it didn't bore me to death, and it cheered me up a bit.
In general, I simply dislike a lot of romantic comedies. Not all of them, but most. The thing is that in all romantic comedies the plot it pretty much: Lover #1 likes Lover #2. Love occurs. Silly side character makes fool of himself/herself. Insert contrived dialog *here*. Then the producers just come up with a twist to overlap the easy, predictable format, and have all the dialog be about that. So in brief a romantic comedy about gay romance is just going to be contrived dialog about being gay. (which sort of sums up this movie)But I have seen worse romantic comedies about gay romance. All of which just spent the whole movie leaning on the fact that they were being controversial (sort of) and not nearly enough time leaning on good writing and/or good acting. I wish someone would make a gay romantic comedy that wasn't all about the fact that the main character happened to be gay. And instead revolved around they're specific plot. I mean there aren't any romantic comedies where the whole movie is just some cute movie-star talking about how neat and inspirational being straight is! I just wish these people would get over themselves and make good movies as opposed to novel ones.
