Quotes

Troy: Why'd you stay with me?
Donna: Troy, I dug you. You know, I remember the exact date, time, and TV show when I discovered that you weren't into me... I caught you. I watched you in your rec room stroking yourself to a male undergear catalog. A crusty, stuck together male undergear catalog. And I was your girlfriend.

One of the few great gay movies.
6 February 2005 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

There aren't many movies that portray mainstream gay relationships. This move does. The two main characters are very likable and have great chemistry together. "Denied" deals with the struggles gay men have coming out of themselves and the people they have grown up with. The director has done a great job of maintaining tension of the film you never quite sure what's going to happen next. There are some nice sex scenes that are tender and touching not contrived or gratuitous. If you've always wanted to see a movie that portrays how men care and love one another you will like this movie. Great dialog and acting. Film lighting and sound could be improved but are worth putting up with. Hats off to all who participated in this movie. Please do more!
