A Note from the Flying Monkey: Of the many emails I receive every week for my column, some are so good that they simply can’t be answered in just a few words. So from time to time, the editors have decided to let me out of the “cage” of that regular column, in a feature we’re calling Monkey Uncaged!
Q: What, in your opinion, is the worst gay film ever made? Why? – A.R.
A: A couple of months ago, I wrote a list of what I considered to be the ten most “important” gay male films – not what I felt were the “best,” mind you, but the ones that I felt had had the most impact either on the Glbt community or society at large.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0 I only mention this because so few people have seen the film that they may be drawn to it at Blockbuster or in their Netflix queue. “New in Town” isn’t nearly as painful as I expected it to be but the horrendous script sink all the best efforts of the reasonably charming Renee and always-good Harry.
New in Town was released on Blu-Ray on May 26th, 2009.

On paper, “New in Town” sounds promising. Zellweger plays Lucy Hill, a tough-as-nails executive who takes on an assignment at a manufacturing plant in Minnesota. Transplanted from the sunny beaches of Miami to the frozen tundra of the great North,
Class-comedy by Hollywood elite falls flat
Jonas Elmer tried to direct a hit comedy in which two worlds collide. But with New in Town, he merely bangs cliches together like a pair of irritatingly loud cymbals.
Why are most men the way they are about sex — and so different from most women? Are gay men different from straight men? And what does the internet have to do with it?
Interesting questions, no? Even if they're not, the subject of "Male Sexuality" gives me an excuse to write about sex in this week’s edition of the Best.Gay.Week.Ever!

Male Sexuality Is A Beautiful Thing
I’ve never been one of those who say, “Men are pigs” — implying that those of us with “Y” chromosomes are somehow less evolved or less developed than,
Renee Zelwegger stars as Lucy Hill, an ambitious female executive based in Miami. She.s trying desperately to climb the corporate ladder so when the opportunity arrives for her to ascend, she gladly takes it.
But that opportunity will make Lucy move from the warm Miami to the blistery cold New Ulm. What.s a tropical girl to do?
Written by Kenneth Rance and C. Jay Cox, the script is so steeped with Minnesota clichés that I felt bad for its inhabitants. All the residents talk like Frances McDormand.s character, Marge Gunderson, in .Fargo..
Incidentally, Lucy.s assistant in the film is named Blanche Gunderson (Siobhan Fallon Hogan). Is this the filmmakers. homage to the far better .Fargo?
