Fashion Guy: Here's a tip: no straight man knows how to tie a bow tie. That's why they make these R.S.V.P. cards. Simply check "no, I will not be able to attend your stupid fancy-dress party" on the card, and all of your bow tie problems are solved. After all, it's not like it's the only time your sister will be getting married.

The comedy is not mean, its less... actually its meaningless.
28 February 2004 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

When the "Flab 4" get lost in the opening credits it's a dead give-away to where this show is going. Nowhere.

At first glance it seems like a great idea to lampoon a runaway hit show about gay men "metrosexualizing" straight men. But then you have to ask yourself, what do stereotypical, straight men know that a gay man would want to know?

I don't think that they've found the answer to that question yet.

The first episode played heavily on straight and gay stereotypes and while they did it in an inoffensive manner they, for the most part, were just NOT that funny.

In the show they are parodying, the straight man actually gets something out of the experience, a slightly better look, a much nicer living space and a few ideas about how to shop/cook/dress, etc. In the end of the gay show the straight man is most generally glad to have had the gang's help. In the parody, they lack this. In the end the gay man is most likely to be glad that he's gotten through its and that these guys are outta his life.

This comedy is not mean spirited. And for most gay men seeing straight guys poke fun at them in a "good natured" way is an improvement. I'll probably watch again but unless they come up with some better ideas, this show is not gonna be much of a hit.

I suggest that this show take a few more tips from the British version of "Faking It" There they have had episodes where gay men have passed themselves off in typical "Straight Guy" situations that have been genuinely interesting. But then the comedy may not be there as easily.
