Michael and Matty are Seniors in high school. They have been best friends since they were eight. They are not the most popular kids in school. They are pretty much awkward geeks and stoners. The two plead to get laid by prom, so they made a pan of pot brownies for prom. Matty comes out as gay to Michael, and this sends Michael into to a downward spiral. He accepts Matty being gay, but he cannot handle any amount of change in his life. Michael screws everyone up, and he has to figure out how to fix it all back.
This is not the typical gay coming out of the closet movie at all. Michael the straight best friend is the one with all of the issues. He screws up everyone and everything because he cannot handle change, then cry for you. Michael was the one that was really in need of help in the movie. All of the other characters were pretty stable. Matty, the gay best friend, was not the typical movie gay character in high school. He was a geek, not trendy at all and out of shape. They even gave Matty a normal boyfriend.
For this movie to barely even hit any radar at all, it was a pretty good movie. Not a lot of drama, but a good movie about friendship and how it can change and stay the same. Give this movie a chance. Enjoy.
