As quirky as they come, you will likely either hate this film or come away very satisfied, thinking "well you don't see that every day". I was in the latter group. I regret none of the 97 minutes of my life donated to watching it.

There is something about a surfer boy just as there is something alluring about the ocean. They are both beautiful, mysterious and seemingly out of reach. Or so I thought until I saw "Tan Lin... Read More

This movie is a wonderful surprise---a small gem, really. The photograph on the DVD and the title are actually misleading. The actor on the cover is not the lead, though he is good.

The standout performance in TAN LINES is the by the act... Read More

This is one of the hardest films to review.
It was priceless in it's accuracy of the mind set of the characters. The acting is spot on by all, specially Jack Baxter as Midget.
It is not really an overly plot driven film, but a realistic... Read More

Review by John Frame

Tan Lines is a shockingly low quality film from whatever angle you might consider. There are simply no good points.

It should have been edited down to a maximum 15 minute short film - that's more than enough time to effectively capture ev... Read More

I bought this movie based on the photo of the bronze surfer with his board shorts hanging slightly below his hips. I imagined this movie would be nice eye candy, and enjoyable, and then simply forgotten afterward. I was mistaken. This film was more ... Read More

First off the budget most have been at the most $1.99. not
only that but the color is quite uneven at times. Also the
mucho nudity mentioned in the above review is all rear view.
the absense of frontal nudity is well kind of bogus. a... Read More

Review by Penn State

I liked Tan Lines this movie is a purchase and not a wait and rent. Midget is a sincere character who is torn betwen the straight world and the gay world - as you can see he has no problem "getting it up" with women, but yet needs the love of a man. ... Read More

I got to see this film at Inside Out, the LGBT film festival in Toronto. The theatre was packed and sold out.

It was a cute film, definitely had its eye candy. The weird happenings at the mansion are indeed odd and never really explained... Read More
