Šta vam treba ako želite da odete u ameriku? Jedan od recepata izgleda ovako:
1 peder koji je zaljubljen u vas
1 lezbijka koja pristaje da se uda za vas
– Svi njihovi prijatelji

Znači kada odete u ameriku , prvo što uradite je da se udate za lezbijku. Pazite samo da ne izgleda muškije od vas! Nije lijepo za viđet, da vam se ne začude roditelji kada im šaljete fotografije!

Zatim morate da naučite sve o vašoj ljubljenoj, kako joj se zovu roditelji, gdje žive, u koju školu je išla , u kje gradove je sve živjela, dje ima mladež, đe radi…. ma sve živo morate da znate o njoj! Ako nije pričljiva pitajte njenu đevojku , ta sigurno zna sve! A i njoj recite sve o sebi, pa neka joj prenese sve o njenom mužu!
Srećom u ovom filmu za to nije bilo potrebe jer je lezbijka sama sve naučila , a i nije baš mutava.
I tako dobijate zeleni karton! Imate brak, dečka i prijatelje, još samo danađete posao i uživajte srečno do kraja života!

Tako izgleda idila iz ovog filma! Uz dosta romantične muzike , malo seksa, malo golotinje, i drugih začina kako bi priča bila ukusnija za gledaoce i dosta reklama, jer se ipak radi o novom prehrambenom proizvodu namjenjen pretežno gay populaciji!
Zaista nje bitno , što su glumci u ovom filmu prilično amaterski odradili svoje uloge (izuzimam ženu lezbejku) Sve je to tako dobro upakovano da je zaista teško ne kupiti i otvoriti ambalažu.

Mada sve bi izgledalo mnogo privlačnije da se znalo ko je kod onog gay para muško , a ko žensko. Ovako nekako mi neprirodno da žena jebe muža, a nekima se može učiniti da je to ipak seks između dvije lezbijke! No to je stvar izbora i afiniteta!
Film me podsjetio na vrijeme kada sam skoro bio u braku sa jednim momkom. Taman sam ga bio predstavio mami i porodici i mislio da sam srećan u braku, kad se na žalost ispostavilo da ne možemo da imamo đecu. A đe nema đece brak obično propada. Tako je to.

A scena u filmu đe jedan od njih dvojice priznaje prevaru me je rasplakala. Pita ga on, pa jeste li imali seks? A ovaj drugi odgovara: Ne definitivno nismo, samo mi je pušio. A ti jesi li njemu pušio? Predpostavljam da jesam, samo malo! Sva sreča te nisu imali sex!

Nije loš film za odgledati ga kada nemate druga pametnija posla! Možda je najbolje odgledati ga nakon dobrog seksa, pa onda onako opušteno i dremljivo slušati muziku koja će se vjerujem pojaviti na svjetskim gay top listama! :)))

After Marcel (Justin Tensen) flies in from France to get married to Sarah (Jane Elliott) in New York City, Marcel goes off to his musician boyfriend, Kyle (Simon Miller) and makes out with him. It turns out that Sarah’s a lesbian while Marcel and Kyle are both gay lovers and the only reason he and Sarah got married was so that he could get a green card. In a rather implausible scene, Kyle and Sarah go to the Department of Immigration to prove that they’re married and both of them struggle to answer certain questions seem uncomfortable during the interrogation, yet they’re somehow able to fool them.

Just when Marcel moves into Kyle’s apartment, April (Rob Harmon), a transsexual prostitute, moves in as well. Will Kyle be able to give equal attention to both Marcel and April or will there be some sort of a conflict involving jealousy? Marcel clearly wants to spend more time with Kyle and thinks that April’s getting in the way, but the way he deals with his problem so aggressively and insultingly seems very immature and selfish to Kyle as well as to the audience. Soon enough, their relationship hangs on thin ice that could break any second. April has problems of her own when her body doesn’t accept her new breast implants, so she has them removed, shaves her head and decides to go back to being a man again. Despite a terrific ensemble cast that adds some much-needed energy to the film, writer/director Casper Andreas’ uneven, occasionally stilted screenplay falls somewhat flat in the romance, drama and comedy departments. On a positive note, Andreas includes a well-chosen soundtrack and smooth, stylish cinematography. The flashbacks showing how Kyle and Marcel had first met at a club, however, don’t help to give the audience a sense of why they’re truly in love with one another. What makes their connection beyond a physical attraction?

Why do Marcel and Kyle behave so naively, especially when Kyle decides o distance himself away from him? It’s as though they’re both still stuck in their teenage years and haven’t learned how to listen attentively to one another, to compromise or to articulate their feelings respectfully for that matter. Their rudeness and jejuneness get on your nerves more often than not. Moreover, both of their actions in the third act feel out-of-character and make them quite unlikable. The only remaining character who remains likable and charismatic throughout happens to Sarah, but there aren’t enough scenes with her. Had she been the protagonist instead and with a more organic and witty screenplay, Between Love & Goodbye would have been much more engaging rather than often dull, contrived and unmoving. It also doesn’t help that its abrupt ending leaves you with a bad aftertaste.
