Jason Gould satirizes coming out in Hollywood in Inside Out, starring Alexis Arquette and papa Elliot Gould. Lane Janger's Just One Time was a festival favorite recently expanded into a feature film that turns the tables on a groom-to-be and his fantasies of sex with two women. Bradley Rust Gray's Hitch follows two attractive young guys on a dizzying road trip that leads them toward sexual self-discovery. David Fournier's Majorettes in Space is a witty French spoof of post-modern sex, romance, relationships, the Pope and baton-twirling majorettes. And, Gregory Cooke's $30 is the bittersweet story of a closeted teen presented with a young prostitute on his 16th birthday. Written by Strand <>

Not as good as "2", but OK
11 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Boys Life 1" and "2" are a collection of short movies dealing with gay youths. "2" actually contained an Oscar-winning short--"Trevor". This movie isn't as good as the first two, but occasionally works. It contains 5 shorts--"Majorettes in Space" comes first. It's a French film that juxtaposes gays, straights and the Pope in a very interesting way. Short and very well-done. Second is "hiTCH"--a very boring story about a young gay man and straight man on a road trip. Annoying direction and a pointless story. Third is the longest (27 min.) and called "Inside Out". It's about a young man (Jason Gould--son of Elliot and Barbra) dealing with being a celebrity's son and gay. Well-done with a few good lines and a nice cameo by Christina Crawford, but it lacks a specific point of view and is kind of dull. 4th--"Just One Time" is basically a promo for the feature film of the same name. Cute and quick. Last is "$30"--an excellent short about a prostitute (Sara Gilbert) and a closeted young man trying to lose his virginity. Predictable, but sweet and entertaining. Worth seeing for the first and last episodes. Hopefully, there will be a "Boys Life 4" with a better selection.
