User ReviewsReview this title
The second however, was an abomination. The script needed many many more edits before it made it into production. The fact that all of the actors had to be replaced was one of many problems. Their replacements were not completely thought out. Andy's in particular, seemed nothing like his character in the first.
However the premise still had some promise. Taking them all for spring break sounded very hilarious and had plenty of room for laughs and promiscuity. And we were instantly introduced to "Jaspers" our three antagonists. And Griff and Jarrod's budding relationship opened up the idea of sexual monogamy a real issue that many couples face today, a promise for some type of depth to the entire plot.
It seemed like all the plot lines had promise even Nico's rather week like with a bad luck Tiki seems to be the set up for some hilarious consequences.
But then the script fails to deliver.
There was not enough prep put into this movie and there was not enough thought given to the final product. And finally the promise of yet another sequel "Gays in Space" sounds atrocious.
On a shoestring budget the plot seems borrowed from the video game "Leisure Suit Larry: Love For Sail". A group of four gay teens(ish) head off to Florida for Spring Break and enter a contest to see who can get laid the most.
It's a testament to our changed world that a gay themed sexploitation film can even be made. Unfortunately making gross-out jokes "gay" doesn't make them funny, and so many sight gags and predictable moments occur in this movie that it prevents a real laugh-out-loud experience.
Whether it's "the prettiest boy" ending up with poo on his face from an unclean sex experience or a father and son power-vomiting all over each other because of accidental incest, most of these shallow moments somehow lose their sheen for even the biggest fan of low brow gags.
Saving the film is the character of Nico, the over-the-top femme of the bunch. Actor Jonah Blechman really commits to the role and what could have been an irritating stereotype manages to come off as genuine. There are also some brilliant parody moments including Nico running down the beach in braids a'la Bo Derek in "10", and even a one-off tribute to cult classic Romy & Michele's High School Reunion.
Where the movie really fails in in the attempt to blend boner jokes and toilet gags with genuine plots about monogamy, relationships and discovering one's identity. Could it have been achieved? Yes, but it wasn't.
Shout outs go to RuPaul in a hilarious turn as an androgynous activities directory who seems to exist mostly just to drop cheesy product placements for the movie's sponsors. Other cameos are less entertaining, such as Scott Thompson's reprisal as the not-so-secretly gay dad of one of the boys.
If every genre has to have a bunch of duds in order to find its way to classics, then the gay teen comedy is well on it's way thanks to Another Gay Sequel.
First of all, replacing the main cast members hurt the film big-time. Now, the original cast's reasons for returning (or probable reasons) are explained in the film's opening, but if you're going to replace the original actors, at least attempt to cast actors who look somewhat like them. Part of Andy's appeal in the first film was that he was dorky looking and kind of generic. Here he's got flaming red hair and a buff body. And while it's kind of hypocritical, it kind of irritates me that Griff's hotness is toned down with a twinkier, even more androgynous actor playing him this time around. Jonah Blechman, thankfully, stayed around and offers up some of the film's funniest lines and moments.
The endearing supporting cast from the original film aren't even here this time. Muffster, Nico's mom and Andy's mom are traded in for the hideously unentertaining "Jaspers" and Perez Hilton, who provides what are perhaps the most annoying 5 minutes of screen-time I've ever sat through. Even the chunk of dialogue he has on the airplane, in which he's playing fairly low-key, made me want to pry my eyes out. It's a shame, because half of the film's budget was probably wasted on having him appear. Also, Andy's dad appears very late and randomly in the movie, making me think that they needed to pad the film with gross-out humor to get the running time up to par.
Thankfully, the movie does have its funny and sincere moments. The exchanges between Nico and Stan (Brent Corrigan) are cute and thoughtful, as is the turmoil between Griff and Jarod in deciding whether or not to open up their relationship. RuPaul provides some hilarious one-liners and random appearances in the movie. And the references and homages in the movie - ranging from "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion" to "10" and "Thriller" - kept me sane.
Altogether, "Another Gay Sequel" comes up short in terms of keeping with the tone of the original, and gives us a bunch of new characters (and actors) who, unfortunately, can't capture the campy and hilarious mood that the first film gave to us.
I went to see this movie with my best friend and guru, my yoga instructor. I had seen the movie several times, but after her unbiased and objective views, and talking about it at length, I have come to see this movie under a completely different set of eyes.
It was beautiful that two people loved each other so much that in order to stay with each other, they took the time to define their love, their limits. Amidst all the surrounding debauchery, their love prevailed, even in the most of difficult and extraordinary of circumstances.
It was equally beautiful that the red head (slut) found the true love in the Latin guy, which was very pure and exciting, and proved that just having casual sex is so much superficial and different than the feeling behind true love and the act of love making.
In regard to Niko, the main star, the realization that we all sometimes see a little bit of him within ourselves is very touching. In many ways, we often have a self view of us to be so different from the rest of the world, as if we were aliens in our own planet.
Sure, of course, this movie is crass, gross, juvenile, and almost downright delinquent. But, who cares. If you can't laugh at this movie, the very least I can recommend you seek help.
I liked it.
You can tell from the very beginning of the movie that the aim is not so much to tell a heartwarming coming-of-age story, but rather to make you laugh as much as possible by presenting crazy over-the-top, sometimes revolting, gags which it does with gusto. In fairness, this had to be their approach to making this movie. If they were going to make this a serious and realistic follow-on to the last movie, how could they have possibly explained away why three of the four main leads look completely different?! No, they had to just forget about reality and just go all out for funny gags. And on this level it worked; I laughed throughout the whole movie. Result!!
The only thing I would criticize is the use of "actors" who can't actually act - I'm talking about you Perez Hilton! I cringed whenever he was on screen. It was like watching the antics of the drunken slut at a party; you just felt embarrassed for him.
Jonah Blechman deserves a paragraph of praise. He definitely stole the show in this movie. From his zany uber-camp performances to his heartfelt monologue; kudos Jonah. I don't think the movie would have been anywhere near as good if he had wimped-out and jumped ship like three other certain actors.
Biggest surprise; Rupaul is actually a really good, natural and convincing actor. We don't see enough of him on this side of the Atlantic.
Look, just watch the movie with the intention of having a laugh. Switch off the nit-picking film-critic part of your brain and you will enjoy this movie.
I give the filmmakers kudos for expanding on the 1st story rather than replicating it (unlike in American PIE 2, where the guys kinda became virgins again). I also liked that the movie explored different kinds of gay relationships - single guys, monogamous couples and non-monogamous couples. I thought all options were given equal screen time and presented non-judgmentally.
Lastly, I CANNOT stop singing The "Lady" Bunny song "Gays Gone Wild" - I can't WAIT for that to come out on amazon.com!
I did not find one even one scene minorly funny scene, yet found at least a handful which were totally nasty and disgusting...
If this is what passes for humor in the "gay community" today...then let me be an outcast as I cannot find one positive comment to make about this "film" unless you count finally seeing the end of it as a positive...I cannot find one reason why anyone looking at the screenplay for this could conceive why this should have ever been made...were they hoping the mindless sheep would flock (pun intended) to see this film?...I think that whoever heads the studio that made this should be immediately terminated...although this same studio will probably be the next one in line asking for a handout...oops I mean a bailout...oops, I mean a loan so they don't have to file bankruptcy...this studio should go down in flames!
I've seen the first part which was so-so, funny and trashy and a gay version of American Pie. Whatever, We went to see the preview of the second one, and this was a riot - totally trashy and "bad-tasted" (does that word exist ? Well, it does now :-) ) but a hell of a laugh ! A little bit explicit, very colorful and fast, and overall a great fun to watch. If you like trash. Like a mixture of Psycho Beach Party and Zero Patience. If you hate those ones, You'll hate this one as well. Well, I didn't :-)
I really enjoyed the first one and was anxious to see the sequel. I cannot recall if I laughed once. I certainly squirmed a lot, groaned and shook my head.
I have often heard that it is difficult to get a move from script to the screen; too bad that adage did not hold true in this instance.
Ru Paul and Perez Hilton were absolutely awful! The worst of a bad lot (and that is say a great deal!). Brent Corrigan's butt was very nice to look at, but I can find that on-line, along with the rest of his naked body!
Seriously, save yourself and watch something else.
Performances from OK(i kinda liked the guys who played Andy & Jarod and Jonah Blechman(?) is a stitch,as always)to the "WTF?".(Perez Hilton,anyone..HELLO!)
The storyline is all over the place,however Again,not a terrible movie but not a winner either.
Stick with the movies it parodies.
Of course they couldn't make it as good as the first one...but still..
The first thing that I disliked at first sight, was the actor change. I mean the title says it "the sequel", but of all the 4 boys, just one is the same. Although one of the new guys is similar to the previous, all the others are much different, and they are not so good. I mean it. They are terrible.
The story itself isn't that bad. But there's not that passion from the first one that would make you cry; side perhaps from the mermaid.
I really don't recommend this movie for the folks that saw the first one. It's really disappointing. It still has some funny stuff...but....
It's very colorful and the cast is rearing to go. They're all attractive and Clabots and Mosser have beautiful bodies. There's no frontal nudity of them though--just back. The acting is not bad. Mosser overacts dreadfully at first but calms down as the movie progresses and gives out a very affecting performance. Davies and Clabots portray a gay couple realistically and are quite good. Blechman annoys me (WAY too femme) but he was good. Corrigan (whose did gay porn) is quite handsome and charming as a merman. The movie also has a few serious and well-done moments with the guys discussing relationships. Also there are plenty of buff good-looking guys strolling around near naked throughout most of the film. Some great eye candy! However--there's one problem. It's really not that funny. I admit I laughed out loud a few times but not much. Also the gross-out humor is out in full force here--two sequences involving non-stop vomiting and Crazy Glue used as lube are just beyond sick. Also the script wanders all over the place--characters and scenes come up out of nowhere! To make it worse there are parodies of old horror movies thrown into the script seemingly at random. Now I LOVE horror movies and I got the parodies--but they're totally out of place in a gay comedy. My audience sat through them in dead silence.
So, aside from the color, a few good moments, some good acting and plenty of good-looking men this really isn't that good. I can honestly give this only a 2. Seriously--the guys are incredible but the movie is really a chore to sit through sometimes.
It's definitely hit and miss with it's jokes, there are some quite lame jokes, some 'could have been so much better with a bit more planning' jokes and definite laugh out loud moments (The films campy villains - the 'Jaspers', Niko's 'Does He?............' with flickering eyes *not sure what film he's parodying but it's hilarious*, Rupaul's incessant product spruiking, Amanda Lapore's 'offer to use her ample bust for flotation devices during some turbulence, and even Perez Hilton provides some laughs as a militant anti gay campaigner (turned to the dark side after being knocked on the head whilst performing oral on a priest in an aeroplane toilet).
Then there are some sweet and touching moments (Niko's speech at the orgy at the end about his struggle to fit in, the love story between Andy and Luis the virgin, even Griff and Jarod's struggles as they explore a monogamous - then open - then back to monogamous relationship.) It's VERY cheap, VERY over the top and incredibly trashy. So leave your standards at the door and just enjoy 90 mins of mindless fun and campy silliness!
The title of "Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild!" is very cheesy, which is exactly what this film is about. There is plenty of cheap and dirty humour, with terribly clichéd characters doing terribly clichéd things. There is hardly any credibility in this film even having considered that it is a brain off comedy. Moreover, the "Gays Gone Wild" contest is basically promiscuity, which is grossly irresponsible to promote.
"Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild!" is a disappointing comedy, and it is not really that funny either.
What a stinking pile of manure this is. I'm having real difficulty believing that Todd Stephens actually had anything to do with this movie. It is not funny at all. In fact, it goes way over the line of the naughty fun of the first film into purely offensive bile. Seriously, this movie made me feel ashamed to be gay.
So the four boys go off to Fort Lauderdale to have as much sex as possible. Great, sounds like fun! Reality: gay men spreading STDs like it's nobody's business, off of their heads on the buzz of hedonism, having dreams about fisting zombies who go so far that hands break through flesh. It's really extremely unpleasant.
And completely unfunny! I mean, how can anybody actually laugh at this drivel? I wet myself with laughter whenever I watch the first movie. This sequel should come with subtitles, telling you when to laugh.
The constant shameless commercials throughout the film (gay porn websites, brands of lube, you get the picture) and the weird misplaced animation sequence of dancing genital crabs are the cherry on the top of just how hideous this film is.
Stephens should have stayed in bed the day he decided to write this film. Maybe he did. Really, don't waste two hours of your life watching this drivel.
Many moments in the film have that extreme cringe factor, but you have chosen to invest time in a movie titled 'Another Gay Movie: Gays Gone Wild' you can hardly expect subtleties like the camera veering off to record a fireplace while sexual activity is implied...
RuPaul and Lady Bunny bring classic drag comedy, while the main cast are easy on the eye and don't appall with their acting skills. The Cameos from Muffster and Nico's Mum are also welcomed with a wide grin.
I would say if you are bored and want to spend an hour and a half amused yet bemused, laughing but not really knowing what at and trying to guess the countless films this one parodies, go for it! Like I said it's harmless!
This one had decent eye candy, more than its predecessor. Although sexier and grosser, this one was probably not as good as the first one. The plot was unfocused. I'm not sure they should have returned with Jonah Blechman and Scott Thompson in the same roles because their shticks seemed less original the second time around. The sequel also seemed to have more ham and cheese.
This is the first film I've seen with a reverse bell curve on IMDb.com. You're either gonna love this one or hate it. I think you should see it, but only if this kind of movie appeals to you. Personally, I wish the director would make more gay comedies. There is a certain coarse honesty and sophistication to these two films, despite it all. And there should be more gay comedies out there.
