Mr Right (15)

The Independent Culture

The second awful British film of the week, a shoddy, mildly comic drama about contemporary gay life in London's art and media scenes.

A circle of gay men swap partners and bitch about one another, while a woman friend worries that her new boyfriend is getting far too interested in them all. Imagine a bucket of rejected dialogue and story-lines from Queer As Folk shaken up and tipped out on the floor in any old order, and you'll have some idea.

Despite efforts towards the end to import a little serious sentiment, much of the time it feels as though Mr Right is setting out deliberately to confirm every nasty stereotype about gay men (bitchy, vain, faithless), and throwing in a new one (they can't act).
