Love = Me³

High energy and some bright dialogue elevate producer/director/scenarist/star Agustin's debut vid feature "Love = ME³" a notch or two above pure vanity-project terrain, though this slim tale about a two-lesbians-plus-guy menage often seems more softcore fantasy sitcom than the serious alt-lifestyle acceptance plea it occasionally aims toward.

Cuban-American auteur plays Tony, a young Manhattan hottie with dreams of poetry-writing fame, a career goal his comfortably Long Island-retired parents hope he’ll soon grow out of. Their sentiments are likewise-only-more-so when Tony becomes involved with Kelly (Evly Pacheco) and Monica (Angelica Ordonez), a live-wire Latina lesbian couple. The threesome cohabit blissfully until inevitable nagging doubts occur — Tony frets he’s just their temporary boy toy, while Monica fears Kelly is moving to the other end of the Kinsey Scale. Mostly comic progress is more cute than exploitative, though frequent nudity, cast of hiply clad lookers, trite conflicts and superficially drawn characters keep pic from transcending p.c. fluffdom. Colorful design contribs spark low-budget production package.
