It’s an especially fun movie from a director and cast who are clearly having a good time allowing themselves to let loose.
Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
I'm a fan of films that have more than just the usual action or slapstick comedy and I was pleasantly surprised by this gamble at the video store. The film kept me entertained with it's original plot and timeless themes. It's about a cop who, after being dumped and thrown out of his apartment by his fiancé, getting drunk, and waking up in the arms of Edgar, is forced to question his own sexuality and the prejudices that have long been a part of his life. I recommend this movie to anyone because, even though it deals with homosexuality, it is not a "gay film" and even despite a rather "picture perfect" ending, I found it delightful throughout.
"Regular Guys" tells of a straight cop who is kicked out of his flat by his girlfriend and finds himself in bed with a gay man after a hard night of drinking. From there the film takes off to sitcomland as it explores the cop's relationship with a babe on a stakeout; his friendship with his gay flatmate; family matters; coworker biases; etc., etc. When all is said and done, this film does manage some humor and heart, all of it on unsteady legs. Basically a straight flick with gay stuff for comic relief and a par watch with subtitles and some nudity (all male). (C+)
I totally enjoyed this movie, even with having to read the English. I can honestly say that it is one of my favorites. I could relate to Christoph and Edgar, having been in a similar situation. The scene in the locker room at the police station was great too, after rumors were going around. Christoph had reached a point in his thinking where he realized that it just didn't matter. And this happening after Christoph and Edgar came to terms with their relationship the night before. I also loved the ending. I wish I could say more, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't watched it. I liked the movie so much, I bought the DVD.
The police force does not seem to have much to do, so there remains plenty of time to bore the viewer to death with a confused story and a sloppy made film. The overdrawn political correctness makes the film very stuffy and the viewer aware that the makers just wanted to make a film with a message the market was ripe for; so, no honesty here.
