Heartwarming? No!

But: Maudlin... cruel... false(?) self-deprecating... sarcastic: Yes!

And the "pitch" at the very end (how related to the preceding rant?) appeals only to those who may be overly stimulated by scenes from the (thankfully small) gay sub-culture that idolizes the hormone-enhanced, muscle-bound male body: For me, neither a useful nor an honest depiction! :(
