    8 / 10
    A truly cute and not-too-straight romantic comedy about a group of guys (yeah, gay guys) and their daily lives (and loves).
    The critics called this movie the first mainstream gay movie, and in a way - it is. It`s not as "in your face" as "Queer As Folk", but it doesn`t differ from the series too much.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the colors (as well as the characters) are colorful and well saturated.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is is good. The surrounds are used occasionally, which is acceptable for this kind of a movie.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a commentary by the director and producer and 7 deleted scenes.
    Bottom line - a cute little movie about the loves and lives (and also laughs) of a colorful group of guys.
