Reviews

Now a classic gay romance, All Over the Guy tells of an on-again, off-again romance between a cute, neurotic Jewish guy and a str8-acting stud. 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). Romantic, funny and even sexy! Features: audio commentary (Production commentary) ; alternate ending, deleted scenes, storyboard comparisons, cast tapes, pre-production artwork, interview, trailer, bloopers, interactive menus, scene access.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly okay, with two big flaws 16 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
This movie is okay - more good than bad - but it has a couple of huge flaws.

First, the attraction between Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) and Tom (Richard Ruccolo) is completely unbelievable. There's obviously no real chemistry between the two actors (since Ruccolo is straight), and they're not talented enough to conjure it up out of acting skill alone. Since that relationship is the heart of the movie, its total lack of believable passion is a very serious flaw.

Better casting of either (especially Tom) or both roles could have solved it. (Ruccolo looks too much like Renée Zellweger to be sexy anyway, and his shaved chest is a big turn-off.)

Second, when Tom, the self-proclaimed martini expert, makes one for Eli, he uses vodka. Now, I know there are idiots in the world who actually do make a drink with vodka which they call a martini, but that doesn't make it a martini. A martini is made with gin, not vodka. Using vodka to make a "martini" is like using Crisco to make "butter" cookies: you can call the result butter cookies, but that doesn't make them butter cookies.

What this movie has going for it are a mostly entertaining and intelligent screenplay (only occasionally irritating and stupid - like the

It's pretty much like any other less-than-blockbuster Rom-Com.

It has its sweet moments, but is way too predictable to be anything other than Ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites!!! 17 Aug 2013
By Gollop
Format:DVD
Yes, it is predictable but it is still one of my favourite gay romances. A real feelgood movie. The characters are lovable and the dialogue is just great. It just gets better each time...

3.0 out of 5 stars Won't kill you 31 May 2011
Format:DVD
Yet another film about gays who have problems to make commitments. Nothing new.
The plot is predictable, with some weird moments (for example the scene with Lisa Kudrow - "Friends" star - brings nothing to the story).
I think that the director needed some popular names to appear in his work and here she was.
The funny thing is, though, that three of leading characters had also appeared in "Friends" serie before:)

Acting is o.k. Both Dan Bucatisky and Richard Ruccolo do their best as gays.
"All over the guy" won't do any harm to your life. Good for lazy afternoon, if there's nothing more interesting to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars The course of true love, whatever kind 11 Sep 2001
By klavierspiel - Published on Amazon.com
A straight couple (Sasha Alexander and Adam Goldberg) set up their respective best friends, both gay (Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo) on a blind date. While the straight romance goes swimmingly along the gay couple lurches from crisis to crisis. Dan Bucatinsky, the star, also wrote and produced this romantic comedy-drama. There are many side-splitting scenes and great one-liners--the two men's disastrous first date, where they seem to have absolutely nothing in common, is especially on-target. The more serious scenes between Bucatinsky and Ruccolo, as they start to realize that they _do_ love one another after all, don't work as well, the dialogue lapsing into clichés. There is also too much glib pop psychological explanation as to why the two guys are so dysfunctional with regard to relationships. Still, with the talents of actors such as Lisa Kudrow, Cristina Ricci and Doris Roberts in supporting roles, this movie kept me continually laughing and entertained for the duration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Gay Film 28 Aug 2001
By Vasilius Trokis - Published on Amazon.com
It's great to see more and more fine portrayals of the gay community be presented so eloquently and thoughtfully on the silver screen. Last year's excellent "Broken Hearts Club" exemplified itself as a pristine presentation of a group of gay twentysomethings living in California. That story was touching, funny, and brilliantly well-crafted. Now we have "All Over the Guy." This film is a bit more intense (as it is funny) as two handsome gay men come to terms in establishing a relationship through the turbulent waters of dating and occasionally "running into one another" through their mutual heterosexual friends. This fine film stars Richard Ruccolo (of ABC's now cancelled "Two Guys & A Girl") and real-life gay screenwriter Dan Bucatinsky. Both leads are believable as they attempt at finding meaning with their on-again, off-again relationship. Their heterosexual counterparts (the ever-funny Adam Goldberg, and the beautiful, talented Sasha Alexander) in the film are just as funny and truly supportive of their gay friends' quest for monogamy, intimacy, and succeeding in becoming boyfriends, especially after Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) expresses his love for hunky-but-alcoholic Tom (the gorgeous Richard Ruccolo). "All Over the Guy" is not only a perfect gay date film, but enjoyable for its wonderful story and memorable cast. How ironic that when I went to go see this film with a large group of friends, some of them wound up expressing their true feelings for one another (to those guys they've liked secretly for sometime), that couples were spawned out of years old friendships. How amazing! Wish it was me, though. Regardless, the film is worth rushing out for to see it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but I still bought the DVD 1 Jan 2002
By Cirilio Villaverde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yes, I really liked this movie; it is, in the end, another addition to the feel-good gay relationship movie library. I thought the actors were very good and mostly believable; I enjoyed seeing a gay couple exhibited as having the same problems in their relationships as straight couples, I enjoyed the straight sidekicks--without whom the movie would not have been complete.
But then, on the other hand, we have another movie that is set in the la-la land of "all gay guys are good looking;" "all gay guys have unlimited witty one-liners;" "all gay guys have a best friend who is straight;" "all gay guys have their own great apartments surrounded by great neighbors;" and, the one I love the most, "gay relationships blossom out of no shared interests between the partners." So as a date movie I think it's great, and I own the DVD, because I liked it that much. But then there's that undeniably present and depressing feeling we'll all get when we leave the theater of "why can't I have that?" The answer, of course, is that "that" only exists... on the screen. Which is fine at the movies, that's what movies are for. In the end, while the script could have used some work to make the characters more real, I thought the cast delivered beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful insight into the dynamics of gay relationships 12 Jan 2003
By Dave Beards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I had ordered the DVD of "All Over The Guy' on the strength of Richard Ruccolo. I loved him in '2guys and a girl' and was eager to see him in another role. Richard really breaks out of the sitcom mould in this movie - his characterisation of a chain smoking, heavy drinking masculine gay man is nothing short of breathtaking. The film itself is wonderful. It really delves into the difficulties of gay relationships in todays' society and how hard it is to meet 'Mr Right'. The onscreen dynamic between Dan Bucatinsky and Richard Ruccolo is excellent - you really are drawn into the complexities of their relationship. A special note should be made of the DVD. Unlike many smaller budget, indi films, this one is packed with features such as an audio commentary, deleted scenes, storyboards, interviews, trailers and a short film made by the director that will have you glued to the screen for hours. A wonderful movie that I wholeheartedly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You think, because we f****ed, that makes us a we........." 21 July 2006
By JUST A REVIEWER2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This has gotta be one of the most under-rated and "under-known" US-made gay movies out there (well, maybe not under-rated since nearly 80% of the reviews here are 4- and 5-Star). But how could it have gotten by without having kicked up more dust?

Each time I watch it I enjoy it more, each time I watch it I appreciate it more. It becomes like picking up and studying a finely crafted object; it suddenly hits you: hey, there're no seams here, no rough joints; its finish is wonderfully even. How'd they do this? And then you think: Well, Goldberg and Alexander......sure, they've been around for awhile and are truly spot-on here, but.....Bucatinsky...who is this guy??!!?? (only the one who crafted/wrote this play-to-movie, of course).....and Ruccolo...wow...where'd all this acting depth come from of a sudden? And however in the world did one apparently straight guy actor playing against one apparently gay guy actor get this so right? Well, the answer has to be, of course, that they understood if it's about love, it just doesn't matter whether 2 guys, or guy and gal, or 2 gals are the focus. These actors obviously came to realize that, and so it became easy for them to act that. (Not something that two other guys, named Ennis & Jack, were ever fortunate enough to learn in time, eh?).

Well, on to a bit of what this movie's all about. A pure romantic comedy this is NOT.........perhaps, more correctly, it's a "dramedy." After all, how many mainstream gay movies have you seen in which a character utters such descriptively jarring words (see title of this review) after a sexual act that's earlier taken place? Yes, this movie's for real and is very much a real life movie. Just stop to think about it---that when you've had Eli's and, particularly, Tom's kinds of childhood---well, you'll then have a great deal to overcome in adult life, whether it be a heterosexual or homosexual one. And if you, dear reader, haven't grown up in a household where alcohol has been a parental "drug of choice," then don't presume to judge Tom's behavior in this movie. Most realistically, Ruccolo has made Tom a direct product of his parent's relationship.

In this dramedy Ruccolo gives us an especially intense performance which is actually easy to see, if you will only carefully watch his scenes: the telling facial expressions and eye movement; his body-set when he, for example, moves to stand against Eli in one scene, or to unobtrusively cup Eli's hands in another; even his movement of jaw muscles (did someone think his role through, or not!) His end-of-film, wedding kitchen tirade ("Hey!!!!!........") is more than enough to almost scare and stop any viewer short, as it certainly does Eli in that scene. This guy is one hell of an actor......why haven't we since seen a lot more of him? (The "curse" of playing a gay role, the hex of giving us such an intense guy-on-guy bedroom scene; is there such a jinx as this?)

Yet it is in Eli's control freak behavior that lies Tom's salvation. For, of all the inappropriate things Eli's shrink parents (and they're marvelously performed) have given him that they shouldn't have, it's his capacity for understanding (which they also bequeathed) that will in the end save Tom......and Eli, himself, for that matter. And Bucatinsky is just great at showing us a little bit of ourselves (or, perhaps, a lot) in his skillful portrayal.

If you're reading reviews for a movie such as this, then please accept my recommendation to make it a part of any DVD collection you may have.....it's more than worthy of repeated viewings.......you'll catch so much more each time that you do.

PS--Can't help but conclude these comments by saying that, IF "I" had been the scriptwriter for this marvelous little film, the following is the way "I" would have wrapped things up. At movie's end we'd find our struggling duo sitting and conversing in a garden, when all of a sudden you'd see in their eyes and faces---as if the proverbial light bulb's been turned on---each one realizing that they have in the other what they've been needing and wanting all along. What a great heart-swelling moment it'd be for us, eh? (Oh.......what's that, you mean somebody else already's done that?)
