A young actor and his wife undergoing an IRS audit have more to worry about than the usual cheating when the IRS secretary turns out to be hot for the wife and the auditor turns out to be an ex-trick of the actor.
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
In $30, when Scott enters the room, Emily (Sara Gilbert) turns off the television; the show that is briefly visible is "Little House on the Prairie", which starred Sara Gilbert's sister Melissa Gilbert. See more »
"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.
