The ending is beautiful but the ride is almost bland.

Two Young Men, UT is at best a glimpse at a possible beautiful relationship but at it’s worst is a mundane, almost annoyingly delivered conversation. There was something about the performance from the actors which grated on me; it wasn’t poorly acted, but it was a little unbelievable at times. What I did like was how the main dramatic incident didn’t revolve around homosexuality. In fact, the most comedic moment revolved around homosexuality. How’s this for a line: “I’m gonna go do gay sex to him all night long”. There is no gay sex. But there are balls: Pig Balls!
