I started watching this thinking, “ok, another gay themed movie-it’s going to be tragic and I really don’t want to see it.” But, I LOVE Jim Carrey and I REALLY love him in serious roles, so I gave it a shot. I didn’t know anything about the movie’s plot except that it was based on a true story.
Through the first 45 minutes, I waited for the ball to drop and loved the movie-even the sad parts, but I wanted to turn it off before the tragedy. The love story is completely realistic and the actors BOTH were extremely believable.
Then, the tragedy hit. It was extremely well done and made me weep, but then through the tears, there was a laugh out loud moment! GREAT ending!
