I thought about doing this review long ago and actually started it at one pointbut, well, you know how it is All Over the Guy is, ultimately, a classic boy meets boy, boy falls in love with boy, boy loses boy, boy gets boy back. In short, the kind of movie I wished for most of my younger life. It is -- yes, let's just say it and get it over with -- sweet. And that's nothing to be ashamed of. I find it difficult to watch films of actors I have worked with because it's hard to separate the character from the person I know.
Rich succeeded in making me forget the actor All Over concentrate on the character of Tom. Tom is at once vulnerable and supremely sexy; you're not sure whether you want to hug him like a teddy bear or throw him down and get wild with him.
Dan Bucatinsky's Eli is perhaps not the polar opposite of Tom he appears to be. Tom almost physically runs from relationships while Eli backs away apologizing the whole time. They both embody the whole kaleidoscope of feelings that most of us have when we meet someone who interests us -- mostly, of course, fear. Fear of falling in love, or of not falling in love.
Fear our feelings won't be returned, or that they will. Personally, I see an enormous amount of chemistry between Tom and Eli. Look at the scene All Over the flea market, the interaction of their eyes, the body language The rest of the cast is superb as well, including some great cameo roles.
Most of all, the characters of Brett and Jackie are very funny in a superb role reversal -- instead of the ubiquitous second-banana gay best friends, we have second-banana straight best friends.
The only problem I have with the film is the same problem I have with straight versions of this kind of story. How likely is it that people who appear to have such different interests and such volatile emotions will stay together But then in "Pretty Woman" I just couldn't shake the feeling that this rich guy wouldn't stay with a prostitute long whether she looked like Julia Roberts or not.
And this film is in a definite class by itself in its genre. Looking for some great streaming picks? Check out some of the IMDb editors' favorites movies and shows to round out your Watchlist. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your All Over. Full Cast and Crew. Release Dates.
