The slight but amiable no-budgeter “Get Over It” takes an ambling comic look at several slacker types whose relationship skills are formative at best. Straight-outta-film-school project diverts, but is a little too casually slung together to travel beyond gay fest circuit.

Cute, socially inept Steven (Troy Morgan) embraces his natural state — depression — when news hits that his latest boyfriend has dumped him. Never mind that jilting Derek (26-year-old writer-director Nick Katsapetses) is shallowness personified; Steven tailspins nonetheless.

Hoping to shake his funk, best friend Pam (an amusingly sarcastic Deborah Cordell) invites all their old L.A. friends up to San Francisco for the weekend.

Within hours of arriving, however, all the guys have tumbled into ill-advised new carnal pairings — most notably led by obnoxious, ostensibly “straight” Spencer (Christian Canterbury). Irked, the lesbians soon pack up for L.A., leaving boy visitors stranded.

Postscript has Steven saying, “I’m doing as well as can be expected, but chance comes hard.” In other words, he’s still haplessly pleading at Derek’s apartment door. Spencer, meanwhile, is last glimpsed hustling trade on Castro Street.

Film inevitably recalls similar, shaggy early efforts by Jim Jarmusch and Gregg Araki, adding little novelty to the terrain. But it does deploy pretty funny, semi-improv dialogue to poke fun at characters’ general cluelessness. Perfs are decent, B&W lensing grainy, sound variable.
