Dean is having a midlife crisis. He hates his job and sees too little of his traveling boyfriend when an old flame reconnects after 15 years.
The first Act is pleasing, with very snappy dialogue between Dean and his working partner Mel. As we transition into Act 2, Dean goes off to his cabin-like second home in remote Joshua Tree (outside of Palm Springs). The early scenes are delightfully cinematic and devoid of excessive dialogue but when the old flame arrives to visit, the film makes an unhappy transition to a radio play, with too much dialogue and too little action. The first few minutes with the ex-lover provide a few humorous lines, but the tone quickly becomes darker and most of the humor is lost at this point. The last half of the film begins to drag and follows the familiar plot line of the midlife crisis/seven year inch genre -- films like "eCupid" and "Bedrooms & Hallways" with the same prescribed ending. The film is beautifully lit and photographed, and all of the cast turn-in first-rate performances, but the weak second half of the script won't encourage repeated viewings.
