This movie is Over The Top!!! the idea of the story was simple, but the director could make this movie into something beautiful, the pace was perfect, and every detail are just right, there was nothing to add nor to lessen. It has the same quality with Brokeback Mountain which is, imo, the greatest gay themed movie so far.
And I love the ending, it made me feel warm and fuzzy, oh how I wish I could have the same happy ending *wishful thinking*
Zach: Not everyone can’t have what they want!
Shaun: You won’t have what you want, unless you take it!
