Storyline

Kelly Mantle, West Hollywood cross dresser, nephew of baseball legend Mickey Mantle, and the son of a retired army colonel, is panicking. In a few short hours his ultra conservative parents, who don't know their son his gay, will arrive at the home Kelly shares with his buff, Venezuelan boyfriend. Not yet ready to confront them about his sexual orientation, Kelly desperately needs a "straight makeover"... and FAST! This is a task suited for only one team of experts, "The Straight 6". With specialties that include interior demolition, cheap chicks and cologne, snacks, threads, and guns and ammo, the well intentioned, yet utterly tasteless makeover squad tears through Kelly's apartment and life, leaving a wake of straightness everywhere. The once manicured, ultra neat Kelly quickly finds himself with a mullet haircut, an apartment unfit for a slob, and a prop girlfriend who makes Howard Stern's guests look virginal. When Kelly's parents arrive to confront the carnage left by The ... Written by Stan Kirsch

Very funny!

I got to see a fairly early cut of this movie and enjoyed it immensely! This twist on "Queer Eye for the Straigh Guy" is well worth seeing.

Kelly Mantle is excellent as the bewildered gay man undergoing a "straight makeover" as his ultra-neat, tastefully decorated apartment is destroyed. Empty pizza boxes, discarded pork rinds and underwear strewn antlers all play a role in Kelly's transformation from transvestite to straight dude (keep an eye out for the wardrobe selection scenes!).

First time director Stan Kirsch did a great job of keeping the pace up. The entire cast seemed to be in the spirit of the parody (script by Stan Kirsch and Nate Adams) which leads up to a twist ending.
