Product Description

Jason and Chad share an apartment in NYC in this sweetly romantic new film. Jason is chatroom obsessed, he truly believes that he will meet his mate online - and he's always on the hunt. His chase takes him to erotic heights, but no closer to a boyfriend. During the course of the film he has sex in a porno theater, on his kitchen table covered with chocolate sauce and some particularly unfulfilling phone sex. Jason is a native New Yorker - he has a Brooklyn accent (sort-of) and he's a top. His roommate Chad is far more selective in his sexual encounters. He has yet to try online hook-ups, he doesn't frequent porn palaces - his trysts take place in the bedroom with a special guy. Chad is a romantic, with romantic looks. He's blond, slim and has a "refined" accent. Chad and Jason become great friends as the film progresses - Jason starts to do other things besides hunt for men. A sexual tension is immediately apparent between the two guys. Chad and Jason lust after each other, but can't seem to express it. They nearly kiss once after a run. One day a friend introduces Chad to a chatroom on the internet and and he has a discussion with "hook-up guy" - who is of course his roommate Jason. This online discussion resonates with both guys who look forward to another such meeting - without knowing they live under the same roof. Will Jason stop hooking up and settle down with his roommate? Will Chad declare his love to his always tricking roommate ? The story is quite true to the world of 2002 gay urban life, the boys very pretty and film is technically OK for the teeny budget it was made on. All exterior location scenes have music dubbed in later - there was clearly no sound. Some of the acting appeared forced, but the majority of the acting felt natural. One small drawback is a preponderance of product placement, which is clearly how this film was financed - do we need to see a cologne ad in the middle of a movie?

Trying to think how to review this. Not sure what it is about this film that didn't click for me. I think it might purely be the script. Or maybe it's the acting, or both. I was going to give it a 3, just because it had the happy ending, but something made me go for the 2!! Most probably more a 2 and a half!

I mean, it had what I love, a happy ending. The story in itself was ok, all about looking for love. But something wasn't right. I've seen a lot worse films, but I didn't feel that much for the characters. It wasn't as though they were 'bad' people or anything, think they were both quite likeable, but the words they said didn't really sound sincere. As I said, not sure if script or actors. It sort of reminded me of a sexed up dodgy 70's American show, with good looking actors but no heart in it. It felt like this false sense of upness and every actor talked like they were charged and not natural. It's hard to explain, it just didn't feel right!

All in all it was ok to watch, maybe if you're bored and want a film where you don't have to think too much and need a nice happy ending and you don't mind not being fully engaged, watch this, but there are much better films out there.

I was not sure how clear and distinct this product would be,the dvd having appeared on the shop floor back in 2002,but I was very pleased indeed with the quality of the product.
I was equally delighted with the prompt service and the quality of the packaging.I would recommend this film to any guys[or girls] who enjoy a little mystery mixed with a little romance thrown in.

2.0 out of 5 stars After-School Formula 3 Jan. 2003
By interested_observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Two good-looking gay guys are roommates in Manhattan. One likes to arrange dates in internet chatrooms; the other wants to get to know the other person first. The former gets "dates" - in a back area of an adult theater and with an 18-year-old nominally straight guy who plays baseball; the latter pines away at home. The roommates claim not to like each other. An underutilized, cute friend of the reserved roommate shows him how to get on the internet. Both roommates end up in the same chatroom. Try guessing the rest.
To its credit, this very earnest film flies through its motions in about 65 minutes. Snickers help one get past the wooden script and acting lulls. There are lots of skin shots, and the casting is attractive, though some of the sex scenes may not convince. (Maybe the two interviews in the extras section help explain that - both actors say they are straight and have never done this sort of thing before.)
While the movie clearly wants to show why getting to know someone before sex is better than a quickie through the internet, the roommate who holds back is not shown succeeding at getting much more than computer advice from a friend, who is told in turn that friendship is not enough to get any sex. The payoff for the slow-going roommate seems no better than the web-shopper's. It is not even clear the roommates will continue to tolerate each other.
Worthy, but trite...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 22 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Quite possibly the worst film I have seen since Disorderlies starring the Fat Boys. The acting is awful, the script could have been written by a 10 year old and the score is so bad that it sounds like it was written on a Casio keyboard from Wal-Mart. There is not even a decent message to take away with you. Who doesn't know that chat rooms are not the key to finding love? This film (and I use that term lightly as the picture quality suggests videotape) is so rushed that it is over by the time you get back from the bathroom and even a child would be able to figure out the entire plot within the first 5 minutes. Simply dreadful and not worth wasting your time or money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good looking guys 20 Feb. 2003
By Christian Paquette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If anything this movie is worth it simply for looking at the good looking guys. The story line is a little preachy but still entertaining. "Chad" is particularly attractive and has a classical theatrical quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars This was made in 2002??? 6 Dec. 2007
By Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I can't believe this was made in 2002. It seemed more like 1992 with the friend's stone aged computer and the roommate going "What's a screen name?" He was like "Chat room? What's that?" "Internet? Never heard of it. Is it new?" I mean COME ON!!!

This movie was a lesson on how to use the internet by someone who has never used it before. This movie is just stupid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 27 July 2006
By RSMM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Breaking the Cycle," is poor, simulated, soft-core gay male erotica shot on video (not film). It attempts to be a romantic comedy with the "message" that surfing the internet for casual sex is no way to find a long-term relationship, hardly an earth-shattering piece of information. The guys are pleasant-looking but the acting is laughable. 10% Productions uses straight actors playing gay; nothing unusual there, but interviews with two of them reveal that they were very uncomfortable doing so. It is obvious that no one received much coaching because the simulated erotic scenes are clumsy and the guys are apparently nervous even about being seen kissing; as a result, they look like they have never kissed anyone, male or female. Everything about their participation is a real turn-off. Irresponsibly, nowhere is there a hint of safe-sex practices. The two principals are supposed to be roommates who are actors having trouble finding work. That premise is the only candid aspect of this mess: who would hire such talentless hacks? This item is a complete failure, falling flatter than a pancake either as comedy or erotica.
