    This movie tugs at the heart in a way rarely seen in the liberated movies of the 1990s with gay story lines. It hit home for me because Paul Rudd looked so much like a close friend of mine who died only two years before the movie came out. I think the most touching character in the film is the elderly gay man, played by the wonderful Nigel Hawthorne. The film made money, but it was not a blockbuster and I think that's a shame. The pseudo-sophisticates who vow only to attend movies made by small, independent companies might have been surprised that a major studio---in this case, 20th Century Fox--- can, indeed produce smart films that have insight.

    Guy that makes false promise to a lady him being gay. Destroys her own world and will never consider her more than a friend even though he might treat her like no other straight men did. But stay away. Hurts, hurts hurts!!! Loving a gay man. He will never be yours even if he doesn't have another relationship. They seduce you, sweet talk you. But then they can't help it. They still like man and all woman's roll in their life was loving them unconditional and end up heart broken. You end up all confuse trying to get him out of your heart, but will always have a special place no other man can replace. I was the roommate of my best friend gay devoted to him treated me Like a queen. But obviously all he said he loved me and that I was his destiny. Was just a crazy idea. Am walking out of his house forever. Its best for the two of us. Even though our friendship and all we share is great. But like I said it hurts. How can I be in love with a man that likes men just like me. I had to be crazy!!! But its his soul, his special way to treat me and that he leaded me on, he was the one that made fall in love. Then chicken out. Cause gays are gays. We woman will never have a place in their love life.

    I felt so sorry for her in this. Living with Paul Rudd and not being able to have him would be torture!
