For this post, I wanted to talk about a recent gay movie I saw, one which I think you should definitely add to your collection of BluRays. This one got 4.5 stars out of 5 – an almost perfect rating for any movie, let alone one in the gay genre. And don’t worry, there are no graphic scenes, so kids won’t have to leave the room nor close their eyes!
It’s a typical movie about guys “being guys”
So the plot is about four best friends who hang out all the time and are very tight as a group. 3 good looking fit guys and 1 chubby one (and no he isn’t the only comedic release in the movie)… let’s not pigeonhole the poor guy now! The 2 of the first 3 guys are the very best of friends while the other 2 are each other’s’ sidekicks. So you get the idea – 4 guys hanging out all the time drinking, playing cards, playing video games, etc. In today’s world this dynamic surely exists since being gay is more widely accepted today than it was before.
It’s a story about coming out of the closet
Adam and Chris are the two best friends that I mentioned earlier. After a heavy night of drinking they were slowly waking up when Adam drops a bombshell on Chris – that he was gay. Frantically
trying to cope with the news, the 3 guys attempt to avoid the situation, but then Chris had to drive Adam home, so the inevitable conversation came up in the awkward drive home. Being the supportive friend, Chris promises Adam that nothing about their friendship will change, and Chris convinces the other 2 boys the same. Further into the movie it also includes Adam coming out to the family with some comedy to lighten the serious subject matter at hand.
It’s about real, unbreakable friendships
All 4 boys then decide to accompany Adam to a gay club where they surprisingly have a good time as a group. Again, more drinks ensue and it’s just rainbows and butterflies for everyone. When does the trouble start? Now. So after an evening of clubbing, Adam and Chris are sitting on the basement couch having a nightcap before they go to bed (the background music is sombre so you know something’s about to happen… and it does!) Chris, the straight one, pulls out his phone which somehow ends up on the other side of Adam. When Chris reaches for it, he has to reach over Adam, however, Adam mistook this as Chris trying to make a move on him. After realizing it wasn’t what he thought, Chris leaves and Adam spends the rest of the movie trying to apologize to Chris for the awkwardness.
I highly recommend you to watch with your best friends. Push the gay content matter at hand, the very core of this movie is about the strong bond that you have with those who are closest to you. It just happens to make things a bit more interesting that the main character is gay… other than that, it’s all the same… friends fight, friends patch things up.
