Wonderfully offbeat film!
It is a performances centric movie
I wanted to but couldn't!
Tells a fascinating and unsettling true story, and does so well, without pretending to have all the answers.
As a gay man it's disappointing that so many gay men actually like this dreck. Or that it found its way to Tribeca.Every conceivable bad thought anyone ever had about gay men is ruthlessly portrayed here. Oh yes, there's a laugh or two. But mostly it's just awful gross out material that won't give you a break to breath. It's all here. Scat. Vomit discharged onto a guys crack. Sex, sex and more sex. Plenty of frontal. (It's not Dante's Cove which is worse.) There's even a Seth Rogen nude look alike for the chubby chaser crowd. Not to mention a gerbil...and on and on and on and on.You seriously may want to consider having a few drinks before you subject yourself to this disaster. And no, there really is no story line at all. Nothing worth mentioning anyway. If you have an IQ in the range of 3-5 you'll probably like this. If I were any of these actors including Michael Carbonaro, I would try to erase this from my resume and my memory.
I have to say, I was surprised to see Graham Norton as a french BSDM loving teacher. Like really, he was good but I think he took a big risk in taking part. It's not that he's a bad actor, it's just he could've done better by not getting involved with this poorly rated movie. It would be better if made his character role more romantic then being a rough guy.Jarrod and Griff were cute together, I wish the movie concentrated on them rather then the lot of them who seemed to have very snobby lives. I also wish they didn't have to be always hooking up with other people in which in the end, will not live happily ever after. I'm glad I don't need to watch the sequel, this is enough to look at!
OK this is kinda odd... I wasn't aware that there were such movies (I mean gay movies). In the beginning I thought that the actors were just playing their roles...but after a while it seemed way too natural for them to just play a role..they must be actual homosexuals. I'm straight by the way. This movie was a suggestion that my girlfriend made so I accepted because I try to be open minded and accept the "different" sexual taste. The bottom line is that I almost got sick by the end of the movie, not because it was a bad movie as far as the scenario or the acting is concerned, but it showed men kissing and making out etc...I just can't stand watching this.. Maybe I'm narrow-minded after all, maybe I just can't accept that a guy can kiss and make out with another guy (I don't have a problem with lesbians though...so...i dunno) it isn't in my nature I guess. Anyway as far as the plot and production are concerned the movie was not bad at all nor it was boring. There was a lack of originality in some scenes though because they were alike with other known movies such as "Not another teen movie" (I'm talking about the "we will get laid till the end of summer" part). That's what I have to say about the movie, I talked as straight-forward I as I could and I hope I didn't insult anyone with my opinion.
Some movies are gems in the sewer that is the modern-day movie Western World movie industry. While Hollywood has done everything worth doing and refuses to let anything other than unimaginative bile spew forth from its over-stuffed bowels of mediocrity small companies make movies that are worthwhile, fun and make movies for art rather than for the sake of profit. Having said that, there is sometimes a lot of cinematic excreta to be found there too.This movie came highly recommended to me by an idiot and someone who thought Superhero Movie was funny. Even though warning sirens were going off in my head like a million babies screaming at once, I thought that I may as well keep an open mind and hope that it wasn't so bad. And to my surprise it was just as idiotic as I expected.I don't mind gay people taking pride in their sexuality. I'm straight, go me. They're gay, good for them. But I like a bit of taste in my comedies, which is why I usually shy away from high-concept (read: trashy) comedies. But this took gay pride and cheap, trashy, smutty humour and then went way overboard with it. I felt this movie might have been more akin to homo-erotic videos than to an actual movie.Another gripe of mine was that the characters were so stock they pretty much came out of the Hollywood "Sweatshop for Token Characters Factory for Movies that Appeal to F***wits." And do the people responsible for this movie *seriously* expect me to believe that absolutely everyone within a town is gay? I'm going to stop myself here before I rage further. Anyone who sees this movie and enjoys it should consider a dose of shotgun mouthwash immediately. But it won't matter anyway, since you're all going to accuse me of homophobia. Not that you just read that part, since you stopped reading when I didn't kiss this film's ass.
