Quotes

Cooper: Lewis, I've always felt that there was a spark between us. I don't know, I can't explain it. Something about you has always made my skin tingle when we touch. My heart pounds when I think about you naked. Every expression on your face is chiseled into my memory. I don't know why, it just is. And you're the only man who's made me feel like that. So am I gay? Am I bisexual? If I was, wouldn't I feel like that for another man? I don't, just you! Only you.

Overly Complicated Terms of Endearment
25 March 2015 | by SuraditSee all my reviews

The overall storyline is, as far as I know, quite original, but it depends on dealing with denial of & confusion over sexual identity and the consequent subterfuge that results from the constraints that society attempts to impose on our "acceptable" behavior and our permitted relationships, none of which are ground-breaking themes.

The film is almost entirely made up of conversations between Lewis and Cooper as they have their annual reunions, which means that the quality of the movie depends almost entirely on the scripted dialogue and its delivery by Mark Cirillo and Scott Sell … and both range from moderately good to mediocre. Often the conversations have flat-lined long before they end and the occasional slapstick in the hotel, presumably included to regain the viewers' drifting attention, seems more ridiculous than funny.

The situations and dialogue often seem contrived, labored, sophomoric, inconsistent and sometimes illogical. There are some moderately amusing moments and I suppose the whole concept of Cooper living one life for 364 days a year and then something quite different one day a year is humorous in a sad way.

Watchable, but not especially noteworthy or engaging.
