Storyline

High school seniors Michael and Matty make a pact to help each other lose their virginity before their high school prom. Their plan hits a snag when Matty tells his best friend that he's gay. Michael's supportive but awkward attempts to help Matty fit in put a strain on their decade-long friendship. Their friendship is further tested when Michael falls for Matty's former girlfriend and Matty falls for a guy whom Michael wouldn't approve of. Prom looms and Michael and Matty have to repair their friendship and then figure out their love lives. Written by Anne Campbell

Gay as in Happy
2 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

The word had a different meaning a long time ago. But if we get movies with a homosexual theme (sort of, not the whole cast being that way) that are supposed to be appealing to a larger audience, it is mostly with females. In this case we do get the male perspective if you will. And it's not really telling you how to behave or not. You could actually say, that it's even so much about the sexuality (only as much as you want to make it), but how to grow up and stand up for yourself and your friends in life.

Having said that, the movie is pretty funny and light, if the subject matter is not appalling to you of course. There are no dumb stereotypes (which is refreshing) and the movie itself takes the viewer seriously. Are there still some clichés in there? Of course there are. It's inevitable, but does not really matter in the whole picture.
