"All Over The Guy" is a contemporary romantic comedy about the quest to find the "one" when "the one" doesn't know he's the "one." It explores the unlikely pairing of two 20-somethings thrown together by their respective best friends in hopes of igniting their own romance. They do everything they can to NOT fall in love, but finally they overcome the dysfunction of their parents and surrender to their hearts.

All Over the Guy is probably one of the nicest gay romantic comedy I have never seen, I think I like everything of it, plot, cast, setting... everything. Even if the tagline, and the movie posted, hint to a double plot about a straight and a gay couple, and usually this leads to haveing the gay couple "suffering" for center stage, here instead the straight couple is only a supporter, and a matchmaker, to the gay couple made of Eli and Tom, who are respectively, Brett and Jackie's best friends. They are totally unmatchable, Eli the nerd and Tom the jock, but indeed they will discover that, aside from being different on a physical level, they totally match on an heart one. Both of them grown up in a family that is not exactly your perfect ad family, suburban home and 2 kids and a dog, but in a way, they overcame that to become self-conscious gay men. Being gay is absolutely not their problem, find a long-term partner that is another story. This is another point I really like: the relationship between Eli and Tom moves through the different stages, boy meets boy, boy has sex with boy, boy loves boy, without guilty sense or drama or self-punishment. Along the path a stellar cast of supporting characters (like Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow) will help them come to term with this new-found love.
