Hello! I had a customer at my video store who was looking for a movie -- she can't remember the title -- and I can't figure out which movie it is.

1) It's about a woman and her gay friend, and a man and *his* gay friend, and they all meet and some or all of them hook up. (She says that it is not the Madonna / Rupert Everett film.)

2) It has an actor in it who "played the 'evil boss' in 'Will & Grace.'" She doesn't know the name of the actor. I've never really watched the show, and I have no idea which boss is the "evil boss" or who plays him.

Any ideas, anyone? Thanks for your help, in advance.

Plot seems to match Object of My Affection, but I cannot vouch for anybody from Will and Grace.

ETA: Actually, I don't think Aniston has a girlfriend in that movie...

The "Evil Boss" in question is probably Gregory Hines (R.I.P.)

The movie MIGHT be Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her, but I can't guarantee it.




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Haven't watched the show in ages, but the two bosses I remember are Gregory Hines as Will's boss and Megan Mullally.

Didn't see the show enough to notice whether Gregory Hines was "evil" (and I consider Megan as Karen to play a doof more than an evil boss).

Gregory Hines was in The Preacher's Wife, which struck me as a romantic comedy, which isn't what you're asking about so I guess I'll move on now.

Edit: Or I can be a couple of minutes late and pointing at the wrong movie. :)

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. The plot to "Affection" seems closest, but somehow not close enough.

I did some poking through IMDB and I think All Over the Guy (us.imdb.com) is the closest match I can find plot-wise (the gender proportions look right; I should've specified *male* gay friends in my original post).

Again, no one from "Will & Grace" is in it, but the customer could very well be confused, or IMDB might not have a complete cast list for "W&G."

Any chance anyone's seen it?

Actually, I was going to suggest "All Over the Guy" (really, I swear!). Adam Goldberg (us.imdb.com) is in the movie, and, according to tvtome.com, he once played an evil boss-type character on "Will and Grace".

Goldberg wasn't so much a boss as a co-worker of Will's (his childhood bully who got hired on at the office, then tried to force Will to do all his work for him just like back in school). God, I've seen all the Will & Grace's waaaaaaaay too much.

Awesome. That's gotta be it, then. Thanks, guys!

(Now, if I can just remember the name of the customer...)

I did not get closure on the fist bumping storyline! Also, was the episode oddly broken up? It felt like the middle segment was 2 minutes long, and the tag at the end was much longer than usual. Just felt weird to me. "What comes after Tuesday?...
