Some of My Best Friends | 2001
Warren Fairbanks, a gay writer just dumped by his boyfriend, decides, with the help of his flamboyant best friend, Vern, to put an ad in the paper, "GWM seeks roommate." Frankie Zito, a macho Italian man from the Bronx who, against the wishes of his parents, Joe and Connie, wants to move out of their house, responds to Warren's ad. Along with his dim-witted best friend, Pino, Frankie assumes that GWM means "Guy With Money." Frankie moves in, and worlds collide. But with a few ground rules and help from Warren's sister, Meryl, the twice-divorced building manager, it seems the two have the potential to become friends as well as roommates. Based on the 1997 theatrical film written and directed by Tony Vitale.
