In the bowling scene when Tyler is attempting to pick up the split, as the ball goes down the alley the scene is first in slow motion and then in regular motion. As the ball reaches the pins and the film changes from slow to regular, the ball jumps back a couple of feet. See more »

Carlos, shut the fuck up!
So of course you know. You can't tell me that you, of all people, approve of this.

I honestly wish I could say that "Bear City" is not your typical indie gay comedyand indeed some elements of the film differentiate it from most of the other gay indie comedies that seem to sprout up like toadstools these days. But those very elements that distinguish this filmthe focus on bear culture, the bashful twink who "comes out" as a bear-lover, and the depiction of love and sex among gay men who do not resemble Abercrombie & Fitch modelsare so thoroughly transformed into standardized gay tropes that the movie is ultimately stripped of its originality and settles into a formulaic, plot-less pattern of mildly amusing vignettes with no real focus or story structure. We are ultimately left with vapid platitudes assuring us that bears don't need to conform to queer norms of beauty in order to find love and happiness. And it takes them only 90 minutes to deliver this profound and provocative message (YAWN).
