The short-lived Logo series Noah’s Arc, about four gay African-American men in Los Angeles, served up just the right amount of ludicrous plot in each 23-minute episode and will be forever loved by its fans (this writer included) for introducing the phrase What’s the T, grr? The film version, however, might be more adequately subtitled Jumping the Shark. As feline Noah (Stephens) prepares to marry his once-straight boyfriend, Wade (Atwood), on Martha’s Vineyard, the creakiest speechifying about coming out, butch-femme dynamics, HIV and commitment halts whatever momentum this silly soaper had built. Phoebe Snow appears as herself, but what is Tonya Pinkins (of Caroline, or Change) doing in this?
