A contemporary romantic comedy about the universal quest for that one true love. All Over the Guy centers on an unlikely pair of two twenty-somethings, Eli (Dan Bucatinsky) and Tom (Richard Ruccolo), who are thrown together by their respective best friends. They're both looking for 'the one,' but don't recognize it when they find it. They do everything they can to not fall for each other, stumbling over their own fears, family dysfunctions and foolish bouts of self-sabotage. Their comedy of errors rolls on, with the two oblivious to what everyone else can clearly see is in their hearts. Ultimately its' in the small moments of truth-the talk among trusted friends and the fear between new lovers-that the two find their way to a love that will last.
"Oh, I hate that movie!" The outburst of contempt the characters feel toward the clichés of In and Out announces All Over the Guy as a gay romantic comedy with a difference. That difference, apparently, is that gay men can suffer the same neurotic commitment problems and kooky conflicts on the way to true love as straight couples. Prissy control freak Dan Bucatinsky (who also scripted) and macho alcoholic Richard Ruccolo recover from a train wreck of a blind date to find common ground in traumatic childhood stories, and spend the rest of the film breaking up between smart remarks. There's a snap to Bucatinsky's dialogue and an entertaining lilt to Julie Davis's direction, but the characters never become more than caricatures. Token straight couple Sasha Alexander and Adam Goldberg are far more fun, and Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow make memorable cameos. --Sean Axmaker

Dan Bucatinsky stars in a film he wrote, and what a rounding success. The premise is simple: two (straight) friends meet and find an instant attraction, and then set up their... Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2004 by C. Hodges
As far as Gay-themed films go, I would have to say that this is by far my favourite. It shows gays as most are--normal people with (sometimes not so) normal problems. Read morePublished on Nov. 9 2003

I thought this would be a cute gay romantic film with little kinks in the plot but ultimately end in fuzzy sweetness. Basically, a nice, light movie. Read morePublished on Oct. 13 2003 by AH123ABC
You ever notice how cute and ideal gay men are in movies and shows today? At least here we get a truly messed up couple that lives happily ever after. Read morePublished on Aug. 21 2003

I've read all of the previous reviews and found some truth to them. In spite of a low-budget, at times contrived quick stereotypes and cute dialog, the film works on many levels... Read morePublished on July 2 2003
