"I am a self-appointed critical diva and yet I loved this film. Don't believe the critics: see it for yourself! If straight males can build whole franchises like "Porky's" or "American Pie," then why can't gay males have an equivalent? This film is funny and daring. Best, of course, is all the male nudity on display!
You can just look at the movie poster and recognize the stock characters here. But hey, "The Facts of Life," "Golden Girls," and "Waiting to Exhale" had stock characters and weren't bad. I loved the sassy, extroverted lesbian character in this film. For those who suffered from homophobic high school scenes, it is refreshing and joyful to see so many openly gay persons out in high school. When four gay friends try to lose their virginity, the obvious question becomes, "Why don't they lose it with each other?" The film does ask and answer that question. It doesn't leave the viewer hanging. There is a blind female character that some may read as able-ist. However, I think she was there to suggest "Only a blind woman would not know the gayness of the most flamboyant main character."
In too many films, straight or gay, with female leads or male ones, the main character usually has their love requited and walks off into the sunset with their beloved. I loved how Ellen's coming out episode did not have that happen. Here too, the characters make fools of themselves like real people do. They don't all walk off into the sunset happily ever after. Their bedroom adventures don't necessarily lead to permanent love, just as in real life. In a movie so over-the-top, I appreciated this dose of reality. Still, these boys in their late teens sure get to do a lot of things that are not legal for people under age 21 to do.
Straight men and women have an idea about how they are supposed to get down. However, gay men have a few options from which they must chose. I won't get explicit here, but I enjoyed seeing characters debate or brainstorm about their options. I liked that the movie does not condemn either act that males can do with each other.
Internet articles say that audience members gasped when they saw "all" of Richard Hatch, but for those who have been dying to see all of him since his "Survivor" days, this will be a pleasant surprise. He does a daring act rarely seen in non-adult films. I think the angle at which his "presentation" was shot may have been more of a surprise than what he was presenting. He is America's most famous bear, so it was great seeing this side of him. However, he married a man in Canada, so I don't understand why the film doesn't address whether he was having an affair or not.
This film is set in the very racially-diverse Southern California, so I didn't understand why all the leads were white. However, there were characters of color here. I didn't like the stereotypical Asian girl. I thought the Black character was African American, rather than Afro-Latino, so it surprised me that he called another male "Papi" all the time. As heavily Latino as Southern Cal is, it made no sense that there were no Latino characters. Still, this work is not half as homogenous as many gay media works in existence.
This movie may have stolen an idea from the Black and Latino gay film "The Ski Trip." This was a gay coming-of-age story that I appreciated as much as "My Life on Ice"/"Ma Vraie Vie en Rouen." Do see it and form your own opinion."
Very funny, but waaaaaaaaaay "over the top" in crude content

"Reviewers have called it "the gay 'American Pie'", but a more proper name might be "Gay Anerican Quiche" as that dish is used in the same way as an apple pie in that teen flick. And, believe it or not, that is NOT the low point of the film!
The basic plot of the film: A group of gay friends are graduating from high school, and form a pact to make sure they lose their "anal virginity" before the summer is over and they go off to college. The main character is Andy, who has a crush on a Russian teacher (played to the hilt by Graham Norton) and whose father (played by gay comic Scott Thompson) tries to keep him from stealing all of the carrots and cucumbers in the house, by buying him a HUGE buttplug. Jarod is a varsity athlete, Griff the shy closet romantic who strives for a "bubble butt", and Nico is a queeny punkish partyboy, with a blind girlfriend and a mom who seems clueless to her son's sexuality. They get advice from their bulldyke best friend Muffler, who seems to be able to seduce any woman, straight or gay. Their dates include guest stars Matthew Rush (a gay porn star), Richard Hatch ("Survivor") and James Getzlaff ("Boy Meets Boy").
To be honest, ANOTHER GAY MOVIE is often HILLARIOUSLY FUNNY in its outrageousness, and the (I'd bet 100% gay) small crowd at the theatre during the showing I attended laughed a lot and seemed to enjoy it, though I doubt any of them would have rated it higher than I did. In my opinion, the humor would register more with older gays (30+) who can identify (Been there, done that) with the cluelessness of the young main characters, as opposed to informed teens and 20-somethings who grew up in more open times and had resources like the internet. Also, I'd bet that there was at least one or two scenes most viewers would have preferred weren't there, be it the overdone bathroom humor, a naked Richard Hatch waiting for Nico to have sex with him, or the two guys at the bar with NAMBLA (a group that advocates sex with young boys) t-shirts advising Griff that he is "way too old" at 17.
Beyond the sight gags and gross-outs, the story is predictable, with a lot of overacting, scenes meant to shock rather than add anything to the film, and lots of unrealistic scenarios. But I did love the theme song, "Another Gay Sunshine Day" sung by Nancy Sinatra. :)
The theatrical film is not rated, but would be courting an NC-17 due to abundant frontal nudity, simulated sex, grahic sex talk and over-the-top S&M content (Trust me: you'll never look at Graham Norton quite the same way again!)"
Gay comedy at it's BEST

"A man once said that the best therapy is when you can learn to laugh at yourself and feel good about it. This movie-for "those of us"-will split guts from being turned into laughing machines!
it is chock-full of 'inside jokes' and acted out "behaviors" that the straight world only whispers about, but WE live and LOVE to do! From naughty Twinks seducing old Trolls, to parents finding their gay teen in bed with diverse "objects," this movie changes all our old memories of growing up gay to delightful remaniscances!
To put it in a nutshell, this movie is the high school prom that we always wanted to go to, but never had the chance to go to!"
If straight movies were gay....

"Many people find this movie too gross and sleazy. But what it is is a gay version of "American Pie" and is no more gross than that film. It's just more GAY! And just like "American Pie" it is just as dumb and juvenile.
It has some amusing scenes and some just gross out scenes but only one truly funny scene... where one of the guys has picked up a muscle-bound club junkie who does some poppers and collapses while dancing to too loud thumping club music. The EM guys who arrive on the scene [also hunky] fight over who's gonna revive him with mouth to mouth and the prep for the defibrillator is hysterical. [They use sexual lube] No sooner revived, they all instantly start dancing to the pounding club beat.... while the protagonist looks on all this in horror. Too funny. But alas, that's it."
