Another Gay Movie
Photos and Video
High school is over and now it's time for anal! That's the gist, and the whole kit-and-caboodle behind this jaw-dropping, screamingly juvenile and gay send-up to summer teen flicks. Four guys make a pact to move beyond oral sex before college and the rest is, well…it's filled with celebrity cameos. While the boys are trying to become men, one has to come out to his sickly-sweet mom, another has to learn that drinking and screwing don't mix, and another realizes all he really wants is his best friend's booty. But oh, the background! Behind, beyond, and involved in the shagadelic shenanigans is a hit parade of gay-lebrities. John Epperson, a.k.a Lypsinka, is a bitchy clueless mom a la Joan Crawford. Kid's in the Hall star Scott Thompson plays a dad with a clip-on tie and a few surprizes of his own. British talk-show host Graham Norton is a high school teacher with a boner the size of Scotland. And be careful where you put your Milk Duds, kiddies, because that's "actress" and real-life porn star Matthew Rush in a K-hole. And last but not least is the always naked and now convicted tax-evader Richard Hatch from Survivor. He's finally-finally!-found a director who doesn't need to blur his manly bits for a family audience. Another Gay Movie will definitely go down in somebody's history as the film that finally showed the world Richard Hatch has balls.
Director's Statement Collapse
I wanted Another Gay Movie to be the gayest movie ever made. Despite my love of coming-out stories and angst-ridden misfit dramas, I felt the time had come for something new. My goal was to make a film in which sexuality could be both celebrated and laughed at. By inserting humor, hopefully I've created a galaxy not so far, far away, where no one is tormented for who they are. Where "gay" is as normal as The Brady Bunch, and queer virgins want the same thing as their straight counterparts-to get laid. I set out to make the film I desperately wanted to see as a gay teen; in other words, the sort of film Jerry Falwell desperately wants to ban.
