Two charismatic actors and fantastic original songs elevate an otherwise mediocre movie
23 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fruit Fly is very often delightful, especially any scene featuring Mike Curtis (Windy) or H P Mendoza (Mark); both are very talented, sexy men with a whole lot of charisma.

Best of all is a scene in the very middle of the movie in which Windy and Mark meet on an awkward blind date and sing "We Have So Much in Common", by far the best singers singing the best of the movie's many fantastic original songs.

It's a joyously raunchy and brilliant celebration of gay-bar cruising that could easily have been titled "Versatile Bottoms". The movie's star, L A Renigen (Bethesda), is very much less interesting; unfortunately, this is mainly her (boring) story, and she's in nearly every scene.

Aside from Curtis and Mendoza, the other characters are annoying and the actors only marginally competent. A few characters (Gaz, Jacob, Tracy and Dirty Judy) are so obnoxious that I wish they'd been left out entirely; they're expendable, and they could easily have ruined the movie.

But Mendoza's almost two dozen brilliant songs and his and Curtis's on-screen charisma - individually and together - overcome the movie's weaknesses and make it a joy to watch. They're SO GOOD that they raise an otherwise two-star movie to a full eight stars.
