A new low for gay "cinema"
28 June 2007 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Horrid "comedy"; bad dialogue, even worse acting, contrived, cringe-worthy all the way through. Just because gay audiences feel underrepresented doesn't mean they should put up with dreck like "Gypsy Boys"; bad movies are bad movies no matter how much they might validate the needs of a community to see themselves on screen.

The 'Gay Circle of Friends' genre of gay cinema has been done to death but "Gypsy Boys"'s biggest crime is that doesn't even reach a minimum of competence in its writing, directing, acting, editing, pretty much everything. The romantic "dialogue" hits new levels of embarrassment but it was a shade better than the director's attempts at comedy which were beyond the pale. The substandard acting in this movie barely reaches the level of porno performers.

I've seen better movies at first-year film student shows. Even the furniture placement sucks.
