I think the majority of reviews below seem to be far too harsh on this film. Ok, so it's an independent film that's been made on a very tight budget (it shows) and the script is not perfect. So what? Not every movie needs to be a "blockbuster" to be good. At least it isn't you're typical cliche gay coming out film and the characters all have depth even if it isn't always explored to the max. I'd recommend renting it before shelling out 20 quid to buy it, but don't be put off the unfavourable reviews - give it a go.

This film lives up to the title. It depicts life "Like it is". (Or maybe as it was not so long ago). As a Scot in London once with a partner from the north-west of England this reminds me of the difference in culture between north and south (particularly with London itself). Some critics have been hard on this film and the actors but I thought it really reflected true to life characters in and linked to the gay world in different places. The actors show the world as it is, both in London and in the "not-so-gay" world outside. I thought this film was excellent - and Dani and Roger were perfect in context. Come to London, you might meet the same characters!

This film hits the spot at the time it was made, it really looks like a lower budget 90s film. The acting is not great, neither is the script or the idea for the entire script/film but what the heck, it is a feel good funny depiction of the difference between gay life in the north and the south. I expect most of the reviews maybe southern biased and far too critique focused.

Don't get suckered into being convinced by the plot, enjoy the ride and laugh at the hilariously bad acting by Dani Behr. Roger Daltry plays his role perfectly though and is the highlight of the acting 'talent'.

This film will strike a chord with those who realise the way the popular depiction of gay social, business and pleasure is centred entirely on the London area and how it can take its toll on anyone unfamiliar or uncomfortable in these surroundings.

To be gay and fall in love is not easy, for the rookie just as much as for the veteran.

The veteran is in the music business where to be gay is as banal as having no hair on your face. It meets a younger one who is not sure what he is. The veteran falls for the novelty of someone who is doing it for love and comfort and not for his glands.

The rookie is trying to prove himself by fighting the old way, the way they used to do in the Far West, though we are in Blackpool. No gloves. Feet permitted as much as fists and all other ways to hit and hurt. The audience is there to enjoy the blood and the suffering and the loser going out on a stretcher if possible.

But the rookie is initiated to something he wants but he fears and he discovers he likes it, and he likes the man who is giving him that feeling of being loved, of being needed, of being wanted and expected, and he gives back the same. And the absence of the temporary distance of the other is harder than thirst and hunger. The pain of the desire when the object and the soul of that desire is not here is often maddening.

But around the veteran, who is in his twenties only, there are other girls who depend on his guidance in their singing, other boys who depend on his enterprise and even shiny PR to become what they maybe are not, even if maybe they are what their boss wants them to become. And temptation is too hard, too burning hot and sooner or later the veteran will fall and the rookie will be trapped with a hangover that will come from an excess of alcohol and unwanted but un-resisted submissive abandon.

But jealousy and rivalry brings a break up and the story is then how the two estranged lovers will find a crossroads where their roads can meet. More than touching.

The criticisms elsewhere would have put me off had I read them before seeing the film.

Take it for what it is and empathise with the characters a bit more and you will enjoy this light-weight but nevertheless sincere film - and the eye candy isn't to be sniffed at either!

Quite an enjoyable and involved film even if a bit gory in places - but I doubt bare knuckle fighting is pleasant at any time. In saying that, the boxing matches are limited to the beginning and end of the film but are realistic enough. The plot is quite involved and worked on many levels. I found the supporting characters' efforts to break up the two men very well portrayed by the actors because nothing is ever explicitly stated in the film but you can see why they want the relationship ended - they all have too much to lose.

The main character does come across a bit wooden initially but considering he was not a professional actor when he was cast and had no previous experience before the camera - apart from boxing - he pulls it off quite well. The balancing side to this is that he plays the scared, unsure, agitated young man very well. He may not have been acting during those scenes at all! Anyway it does cancel out the scenes where deeper emotional issues needed perhaps a more experienced actor. It works though and the film is well worth watching and not as predictable as one would imagine. Well worth the money.
