  1. Well they all look like 18 going on 34.

  2. What is up with these ads that blast across your speakers when opening a TR webpage. Can someone make it stop? It makes reading TR less than a pleasant experience as you never know what obnoxious ad you're going to get slammed with.

  5. I saw it at the Newport Beach film fest in April. Really enjoyed it, nothing too heavy, just entertaining. @jerry - there are no musical numbers, not really glee at all.

  7. JKM - try a program called adblock. I get nothing but silence.

  8. I read this book when I was a teenager, and I'm so glad that they're making it into a movie and even happier that it will be in Toronto!

  9. An award winning gay movie about a sixteen year old in a secret relationship with the star quarterback while still going out with girls. Will absolutely see it!

  11. Glee the movie, but without all that signing.

  12. Looks a little predictable, but maybe it will be done well. So few are.

  13. Saw this at the Portland gay film fest after interviewing Brent Hartinger for thebacklot.com. It's very sweet and well done and much more dramatic than the book was. Go and bring friends.

  14. Saw this at a film fest...it's a bare bones version of the book. SO much was changed. It was a okay movie on its own, a big let down as a fan of the book.

  15. I was pleasantly surprised by it. I'm friendly with the book's author, so was hoping they wouldn't disappoint with the movie. Then I read a few middling reviews prior to the Outfest screening. But I liked it. And there's a young Asian actress name Ally Maki who steals just about every scene she's in.

  16. Isn't the ususal contingent of rabid diversity freaks going to complain about the glaring lack of trans identity in this movie?

  17. This is based on a book published on 2004, so Glee was not even in the picture. Who's being unoriginal then?

  18. Looks promising. I look forward to seeing it.

  19. Loved the book. Can't wait to see the movie!

  21. We called it Chess club in my high school, unless you wanted to call it the gay club.
