Storyline

From the sleazy bookstore where he meets Monty an experimenting bisexual with a girl friend he left behind in Boston. ("I thought I'd take a walk on the wild side for a few months and then go back to her and all this will become a distant memory" proclaims the young student). Monty becomes Jaime's guiding light and conscience in his dark voyage through the maze of a broken life. After the bookstore gets busted Jaime ends up in the same cell with his archenemy Hal. The two who used to hate each other (Hal used to steal all his hot tricks in the bookstore) become the closest of friends and decide that there is an alternative to gay life. Somewhere over the rainbow there is a twilight zone of the sexual fringe. That's where they belong utters Hal. After a visit to Miss Galena an expert in making gays popular they decide to try a variety of gimmicks. From the circuit parties decked in zoot suits to dressing up in drag and trying to pick up gas station attendant(s) and all the way to the ... Written by Toby Ross

Could not have been worse
6 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You know how people make fun of porn in that the acting is awful the story lines are trite and production values are non-existent? Well, this little flicker has all those things without the payoff that porn inevitably produces.

So what are you left with? A ticked-off feeling that you wasted four bucks at the rental store.

It's not even worth getting into the plot and all that. It doesn't matter. It's so bad it's not even campy or laughable. It's just lame. And the acting is awful! And the direction is terrible! Don't waste your time. Or money.
