"The cover of this DVD boldly proclaims that the short films that lie within are 'bizarre' - and it's an accurate description! Though bizarre in a wonderful, positive way. The six films on this DVD are:Jeffrey's Hollywood Screen Trick: A very funny and witty look at the gay 'dance party' and the associated interaction between gay men at this type of event. Using clever animation involving Billy love dolls, you will be in histerics watching this. Though the ending comes as a shock - but I won't spoil it for you!Shame No More: an extremely clever send up of the 50's propaganda films denoucing homosexuality and the ability to 'cure', though here it is the heterosexuals with the problem! Beautifully filmed to realistically look like a 1950's film.Soda Pop: A lovely tale of unrequited teenage first love. It's amazing how the filmaker made it look like it was shot in the 70's.The Trey Billings Show: The longest of the short films, this deals with a very low budget cable TV show hosted by an interesting character called Trey Billings. The film delves into why alot of gay men worship female icons of yesteryear (though in a total side-splitting way!)Dirty Baby Does Fire Island: Involving an animated baby doll with live footage - you wouldn't believe the situations Baby comes across (but then again, maybe you might!). Includes a beautiful scene of men being intimate.Pyongyang Robogirl: Probably my least favourite of the films, it's basically a film depicting a female traffic controller in an Asian country. Entertaining, though I just couldn't quite get the message!A wonderfully entertaining set of short films. If you enjoy eclectic, artistic filmaking that pushed the boundries of modern culture, go and buy - you won't be dissappointed."
GREAT COLLECTION OF SHORTS

"Bought this because the title made me laugh and ended up with some of the best gay shorts I've ever seen. Much more fun and less cheesy than most of those other "boy's shorts" collections that seem to come out every month. Very smart, subversive, dirty and funny stuff. And I LOVE "Shame No More" and "Dirty Baby Does Fire Island"!"
