Early in this mediocre chamber piece, writer-director Rob Williams indulges in a bit of metacriticism, as his characters debate the artistic decline of gay cinema since the days of Longtime Companion (1990). One reason for that decline, amply illustrated here, is the growing demand for date movies: like so many features for the gay market, this story of eight gorgeous guys relaxing at a rented house in the mountains periodically abandons its dramatic concerns to deliver the requisite amount of soft-core titillation. At one point a character mentions all the legal groundwork he and his partner have done to protect their health rights as a couple. “That’s a great idea for a movie,” I found myself thinking—but with so much less potential for numerous make-out scenes, it would probably never get produced. 84 min.
