Storyline

MARTY is a quirky straight guy weekdays, and gay on weekends, a high school senior, who along with his questionably straight friend JAKE, unravels the mystery of who put a hit on their friend THOMAS'S new gay lover. Jake uses his expertise as a peeping tom and gossip monger to discover neighborhood secrets, while Marty helps Thomas hide safely. At home Marty has problems of his own, when his boyfriend MICHAEL, and girlfriend ANYBODYS, find out about each other. When a surprise fourth person is sneaks into the room, the end results might be deadlier than the hit man. Written by Anonymous

Silly, low budget fluff
28 November 2011 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

With this film, my Thanksgiving Day gay movie marathon started out poorly, but it is by no means the worst way to spend 64 minutes.

But I'm going to do something unusual: I'm going to cut this film some slack. Why? How many allegedly comedic, multi-million dollar productions from big Hollywood studios tank at the box office? A lot - and this is because comedy is hard.

Obviously made on a shoestring, "Unsolved Suburbia" doesn't have the talent in front of or behind the camera to make a truly great comedy. The problems with this film are legion: the sound mix was horrible, the cinematography barely adequate and the direction somnambulistic. But it seems to me everyone involved tried hard to make a good movie... and it made my friends and I laugh.

Sure, when it comes to gay comedy, I'd rather watch Gregg Araki's "Nowhere" or "Kaboom," but "Unsolved Suburbia" isn't without its charms.
