About the Movie

Let the Manhunt begin! When Luke enters the gay bar flanked by his sidekicks, he doesn't know that he is about to meet his match in hot macho man Stephen. Awakening in a twisted heap of naked strangers, Luke heads to work at a Chelsea sex store where he is forced to face his lifestyle by his co-worker Zeke, a confrontational gay crusader who will stop at nothing short of changing the world. Up the street, Peter is moving in with his longtime boyfriend Derek. His restaurant boss Marilyn is maniacally planning her wedding, but when her AA sponsor, Trisha, declares her attraction, Marilyn's sobriety and marriage may be in jeopardy. Smitten with Stephen, Luke considers giving monogamy a chance. He attends a sexual compulsives meeting where he discovers he is not the only nympho in New York. Luke is falling for Stephen, but it soon turns out that Stephen's cash doesn't flow from a trust fund; he works hard for his money as a hustler! A relationship between a playboy and a prostitute depends on whether that is the only secret Stephen is keeping. Among party boys, monogamists, addicts and activists, Luke's quest may unearth answers his heart is not ready to handle. The protagonists ultimately realize that being true to yourself may be the best way to deal with the many complications of A Four Letter Word called love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A Four Letter Word is a surprisingly endearing romantic comedy that explores gay relationships with low-budget verve. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: The semi-earnest A Four Letter Word comes off like an insular gay sitcom, a la Paul Rudnick's Jeffrey, but without the honed verbal wit. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Archer's acting is overly arch, but Cory Grant is quite effective as Zeke. – Maureen M. Hart, Chicago Tribune, Oct 20, 2008

Fresh: The cliches of bad gay filmmaking were lampooned in 2006's Another Gay Movie. Well, here's another gay movie. Things haven't moved an inch. – Hank Stuever, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
