While admittedly not being a connoisseur of gay culture on the account of being on the opposite end of that spectrum and all, I never find it difficult to embrace gay comedies, dramas, or in 10 Attitudes case, dramedies. A pleasant movie made with an ultra thin budget, 10 Attitudes turned out a tad bit different from what I expected.

Unlike the typical gay stereotype trotted out by Hollywood, gay caterer Josh has been a devoted relationship for the past ten years. As far as hes concerned, his beau is the perfect man for him, and their relationship will last for the rest of their lives. But that wouldn’t be entertaining. So of course, within moments, Josh discovers him getting head in his convertible by a boy ten years his junior. Distraught and cynical following the break-up, Josh agrees to allow his friend to set him up on ten dates, all of which have their comical unpleasantries, not to mention the life affirming events that come to occur.

If you can get over the grainy, seemingly untreated film quality (and if you’re a tad bit towards the right, your own insecurities), there’s a great movie to enjoy inside the packaging of 10 Attitudes. While a couple jokes occasionally fall flat, theres more than enough subtle, improvised hilarity to make up for the slip-ups. David Faustino of “Married With Children” fame even makes a tremendous appearance as one of the eccentric men that he “dates,” only to be dealt a proposal that Josh just cant handle.

I’m not entirely too big on the bully flashback, and how that played into the film, but I’m sure that this was partly thrown in to appeal to the majority audience (I wonder?). The fact that Josh’s teenage self had the exact same haircut and face structure as I did in my middle school years, along with the manner of dress, was just too much to handle for a brief moments as well.
10 Attitudes has plenty of moments that warrant a watch.

DVD: Included are three minutes of outtakes, a very informative Behind the Scenes featurette that runs about twenty-two minutes, three minutes of half-naked men that I reasonably skipped, and three other quick and interesting features.
