Oh Happy Day (2007)

Director: Ian Poitier

Stars: Anthony Alexis, Cristina Avery, James Barrett

Two guys battle through the consequences of having had a one-night stand just before they started working together, and learn that to make a relationship work, you have to reveal everything: even if it means getting naked in front of 100 people and a gospel choir singing 'Oh Happy Day'.

This is the most average and forgettable movie that I have seen. It is not that it is a bad movie, not at all. It is a decent movie to watch. It is just that nothing in the movie stands out at all. It is a basic storyline that we have seen in so many gay movies that it is just beating us over the head telling us the same story way too many times. I mean we get it already.

Was this movie good? I think that it really was well made for what it was. This is a gay movie dealing with an interracial relationship, and they never even mention it at all. That is what makes this movie still work. They do not make a big deal at all about the two men being different races. They made it all seem like it was normal, and that is what we need to see more of in gay movies.

Like I said, I think this is a good movie, but it is just an old story. It is worth watching. If you have not seen it yet, then by all means watch it. It will not change your life, but you will at least be entertained. Enjoy.
