Gay for pay
7 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Buffering, a British comedy with a gay twist as a pair of gay males both become unemployed and are facing mounting bills. As they're both a pair of attractive lads Alex Anthony and Conner McKenzy decide that a lot of people would pay to see these two going at it carnally. It gives a new twist to the term 'gay for pay'.

They've even got a friend Jessica Matthews who is going through her own sexual self awakening, thinking she's possibly transgender. But she also has some marketing ideas and even suggests that they make it a three way. In fact both Anthony and McKenzy have been checking out their hunky next door neighbor Oliver Park and as he says he might not be gay, but he certainly is 'progressive'.

Buffering even for its admittedly low budget since about 3/4 of the action takes place in one apartment has some amusing moments. The players in the ensemble cast are bright and attractive. I'd recommend this to a gay and 'progressive' audience.
