Synopsis

New York Police Department partners Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" Maclean are on a vacation in the English countryside—which Dee has sneakily set up as an opportunity to seduce Ryo. As romantic tensions steadily build, Ryo spots a dead body floating in an otherwise tranquil lake. With their intimate holiday suddenly interrupted, the pair must decide what they think is more important: solving a case or each other.

"Fake" is an adaption of the 5th story arc in Sanami Matoh's manga of the same name - NYC detectives Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" McLane are enjoying some down time in the English countryside together and Dee is preparing to take their long time flirtation to the next level...until a guest at their hotel winds up murdered.

First off, I'm going to keep this review short as I don't want to waste too much time. Second off, don't get butt hurt just because I don't like it.

As a heterosexual male, obviously this isn't something I would be open to watching or enjoying. So, I went into watching this with a pessimistic approach. Overall, I rated it a 4 (Decent), which it wasn't. It was utter garbage, but rating it a 1 is too much imo.

Story:
2 Cops solving a case, but the case keeps on getting interrupted with sudden ass pumping. To be fair the story had its mystery and not a half ...
