Matthew Ethan Davis
- All Tied Up in Love
An hilarious, gay, romantic comedy about people who are so heart-over-head in love with each other that they just can’t get it straight. Kenny falls wildly in love with straight Paul, who falls for Kenny anyway. Just as Kenny’s best friend Curtis, is about to take the leap with his boyfriend, Kenny falls for Curtis. Just as Kenny finally works everything out, Kenny’s suicidal mother calls to move in. In the end, it’s old-fashioned love that saves the day, and Kenny.
