A "coming out" story that avoids all the tired cliches and stays committed to telling the stories of these characters, "East Side Story" examines bias of all kinds and features stirring performances by incredibly attractive actors.
Zack is gacationing in Palm Springs, with new BF Benji who wants to try an open relationship, to Zack's dismay. Adding confusion is Casey, Zack's ex, with Peter his fake BF, plus Casey's fruit-fly friend, Penny, and Zack's friend Lili.

When Caleb's gay roommate Kyle reveals that quite a lot of straight woman bed with gay men (ostensibly to convert them), nice guy Caleb considers going gay to improve his unsatisfactory heterosexual sex life. He shortly thereafter falls for Gwen, whom he meets at a party, but she's got her own sexual frustrations going. She's only attracted to gay men while instantly dismissive of any straight guy approaching her, such as Caleb. Kyle quickly moves on the Caleb-is-gay campaign to benefit them, but his motives aren't entirely altruistic. He longs for Marc, a desirable hottie who's Gwen's gay roommate. Unfortunately for Kyle, Marc only has eyes for Caleb. Kyle's plan: Get Caleb to date Marc so it'll bring Caleb closer to Gwen while putting himself (Kyle) in proximity with Marc (their true targets). But as Gwen starts putting the moves on her roommate's new boyfriend, and as Kyle becomes increasingly jealous of Caleb's time spent with Marc, and as Marc persists in laying the foundations ...

I must say I can't understand some of the other comments I've read about this film - even some describing it as "homophobic"? Now that's just bizarre! "Worst movie ever"?? I hardly think so. Clearly this person hasn't seen "Die Mommie Die".
OK, so the production is a little amateurish, a little studenty, but when you don't have a Hollywood budget what do you expect? The people who have left negative comments all seem to be taking it a bit too seriously - reading hidden meanings and over-analyzing the screenplay when you have to remember that this film is simply a piece of light-hearted entertainment - "a load of camp old nonsense" as Julian Clary might say.
I found this a thoroughly enjoyable film (and so did 99% of the audience at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival judging from their reactions) and would happily see it again. I thought is was rather amusing and would gladly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Enjoy!
