Product Overview

Coffee Date is a fast-paced comedy filled with sexual shenanigans of a misguided kind. Straight-laced Todd (Jonathan Bray) embarks on a blind date with Kelly, but his mundane world is quickly turned inside out when his female date turns out to be a hunk (Wilson Cruz, Party Monster). Friends and family - even his mother - not only think he's gay, but help thrust him towards this new romantic endeavor! Surrounded by an excellent supporting cast including comical Jonathan Silverman and Oscar-nominated Sally Kirkland, Coffee Date is a refreshing, madcap comedy of errors and the perfect metrosexual date movie.

Review Coffee Date could be the country's next pop culture sensation. It won't be easy. It'll take a lot of work. But Date might usher in a whole new cinema trend: the gay romantic comedy...It's ultra low-budget, a little kitschy (Sally Kirkland has a big supporting role) and mixes in a credible actor or two (My So-Called Life's Wilson Cruz and the reliable Jonathan Silverman), all which should appeal to both cinephiles and gay movie fans. I mean, even Deborah Gibson shows up...I know what you're thinking... Wasn't In & Out a romantic comedy? And what about that cowboy movie? Well, although lots of real-life cowboys are queer, most romantic comedies with gay characters are straight love stories with a mistaken identity twist, big reveal (the main's character's not gay, after all!), or they're just sucky (see Adam & Steve; no, on second though, don't)...Guys who seek emotional, substantial relationships with other dudes aren't all metrosexual, bi, or just gay enough. They're a diverse bunch who make up half the moviegoing audience.

Review After fans of writer-director Stewart Wade's 16-minute short asked him where the relationship went next, Wade decided to expand "Coffee Date" into a feature that opens with the same mismatched meet-cute. Couple has chemistry, but second-guessing Todd's orientation grows tiresome as the uncertain 35-year-old spends the next hour insisting he's straight while friends and family suspect otherwise. Full of unlikely misunderstandings, the amateurish production stands little chance of coming out anywhere but video...Pic takes the implausible position that a straight man might start to believe his friends know something he doesn't. Stuck fence-sitting for most of the movie, Bray has a distracting tendency to bob his head and exaggerate gestures, while out-and-proud Cruz seems much more comfortable onscreen. By the time Todd and Kelly sort things out, even these two lovestruck movie buffs would agree their troubles don't amount to a hill of beans. Story would be easy to take more seriously if the technique weren't so unpolished.

G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle A likable, extremely goofy piece of fluff.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times A wry romantic comedy of sexual confusion that deftly becomes increasingly serious without losing its sense of humor.
