Sure enough it works, Gwen starts chatting with Caleb, and he decides to play along. Unfortunately it backfires when Gwen decides to set Caleb up with her best friend Marc (Ryan Carnes), who it just so happens Kyle has a crush on. Kyle convinces Caleb to go along with it as he believes he has a plan which will end in them both getting what they desire.

Absurd? - Yes. The entire thing is ridiculous, which is precisely why it works.

Insulting? - No. The people at The Advocate apparently liked it, and it won awards at two Gay & Lesbian film festivals, if that's any indicator of it's non-offensive nature.
Oh. Well then. That's different.

What concerns me about that comment is, who "puts out" after only one date? I hope there isn't actually some expectation of that, as I certainly wouldn't, just seems a little slutty to me. I want to get to know someone before they're getting their hands in my pants.
Oops! I was on a self-righteous roll and got a bit carried away. There are plenty of us who don't "put out" on the first date.

I liked it, it was just a fun lighthearted film that made me giggle.
You can find out what other people thought here.
Okay, after your more in-depth description of the story, I'm willing to concede that this movie might be a huge improvement on "The Pajama Game".
Ignorance is bliss, denial is divine, and willful ignorance is a religious experience.

Share the love.
