The 19th Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival

Another Gay Movie

D: Todd Stephens; with Michael Carbonaro, Jonah Blechman, Jonathan Chase, Mitch Morris

Consider it payback for all those Brokeback Mountain parodies. The teen sex comedy gets a Queer Eye makeover when four gay high school boys set out to lose the "big A" before the end of summer. Look for cameos by Richard Hatch, Ant, and porn star Matthew Rush, but the movie's most appealing feature might be the setting: a high school where all parents are supportive of their children's lifestyles and the biggest problem facing gay teenagers is figuring out how to get laid. For all the gross-out body-fluid gags, gerbil stuffing, and vegetable-drawer raiding, the movie manages to tap some of the same sexi-/sweetness as the American Pie series. After all, "The best butt love is when you're in love."
