I love this idea - taking scenes from classic popular "straight" films, we grew up with and re shooting them with gay characters. I saw all these films at a Film Festival recently and the audience was howling! Some were hysterical - "Hung Frankenstein", "Gay Graduate", "Reserviour Dykes", "Taxi Lesbian" a parody of Taxi Driver with the vehicle of choice being a U-haul instead of a Taxi complete with an in-love sociopath female Travis Bickle - (Im not sure why that short was not part of this list?) And some were moving and sweet "Gay on Golden Pond" was very lovely. These short films are something fresh and new. The various directors did a great job of bringing the exact "look" to the films. Some of the original dialogue was changed just enough to make them fit to the characters and the changes were very funny. I found this series of shorts quite well made and refreshing!
