Darren can't sleep because of the happily married gay couple upstairs. He can hear them having sex through his apartment's air ducts. Like, a lot of sex, every night. He tries to ignore it at first, but soon becomes obsessed with the suspicion that one of them is having an affair. Thus begins Darren's quest for the truth by surveying, snooping and basically stalking them. His ex-boyfriend and gal pal both think he's going a little nuts. But thank goodness Darren's handsome maintenance man hasn't caught on... yet.
Writer/director/actor Matt Riddlehoover is back with a new romantic comedy. He stars in the film as Darren, a single gay guy. Darren starts the film in a rut. He recently broke up with a long-term boyfriend, he doesn’t have a stable job and he’s not quite sure what he wants to do with his future. Feeling lonely, he spends his time watching old movies and listening in on his upstairs neighbors – a sexy gay couple who don’t realize that their voices are traveling downstairs through the air ducts.
Their casual conversations and loud sexual escapades soon prove far more exciting than anything on television and Darren gets a little obsessed. He finds himself even deeper when he discovers that one of the guys may be cheating on the other.
Meanwhile, Darren has also begun a flirtation with Joe, his building’s super-masculine, scorching hot handyman (Jared Allman). Joe, a divorced father who came out of the closet later than most, seems like a perfect potential boyfriend, but Darren is far too preoccupied with stalking the upstairs neighbors. He starts following them around and even goes as far as breaking into their apartment and hiding under the bed when one of the two comes home.
Scenes from a Gay Marriage has the feel of a laid back, gay-themed Woody Allen movie. The writing is clever and the performances are compellingly natural. Riddlehoover gives the most subdued performance of the group, leaving plenty of room for his supporting cast to shine. Thashana McQuiston (who also worked with Riddlehoover on Bookends, To a Tee and Watch Out) is a particular stand-out. She delivers a completely charming performance as Darren’s equally voyeuristic partner in crime. And both newcomers Jared Allman and Carson Nicely prove positively drool-worthy – thankfully, it looks like they’re both going to be in Matt Riddlehoover next film as well!

This was a good movie but not great. It shows how things can go wrong and love is right in front you. This movie is worth buying for your collection.

I did not enjoy this movie at all. It was a waste of my time. It had an annoying sound track that played during the entire movie even when there was dialogue. The title of the movie is misleading as this movie has very little to do with a gay marriage. The lead character is not married and all of his friends are also not married. The lead character is boring and so is his life. In my opinion, the only interesting character in this movie is Joe played by Jared Allman. This movie might have been ok to watch if it had been a short film but it is a feature length film. This movie has no consistent theme or plot and it just drags on and on and at the end of the film I felt relief that it was over. Don't waste your time on this film.

I had expected a faster paced movie. This was like watching molasses drip from a cold spoon. But the overall film was very good. And I laughed more times than I could count. The movie has an interesting range of people, including the lost lover, of course the "married" couple, the requisite woman sensitive to gays and very open, and some hunky men. It's a good film, it just moved slowly.

"Scenes From A Gay Marriage" was smart, realistic, unpredictable, had nice eye candy and funny.
I would definitely recommend this movie; It's worth the watch. I'm really glad to have it in my movie collection. This is my first Matt Riddlehoover movie, but I'll keep an eye out for his other movies.

This is a intriguing film, that I already want to watch a second time because it was so enjoyable. There are some scene-stealing performances and a story that keeps you wanting more. I especially like that it is reminiscent of thought provoking 80s films, but in a contemporary environment. Scenes from a Gay Marriage does an excellent job of involving the audience, because you become so immersed in the characters immediately. I am definitely looking forward to the sequel!
