Pudgy Yossi meets burned out queens
22 September 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

A pudgy older Yossi (Ohad Knoller 37) is now a 34 yo doctor-- cardiologist no less. He wouldn't look half bad if he would lose 30 pounds... one kind of likes the gay heroes to look appealing in these movies. I kept thinking well the romantic interest will be fun to look at. WRONG First of all it takes an hour and half to get to the romantic interest and what a disappointment= Four queens posing as Israeli soldiers are picked up by Yossi on his way to a Red Sea resort. The only thing they do is make him look decent in comparison. You know the type burned out too much instant tan makeup plucked eyebrows etc... queens.

They may have been younger and thinner but zero in the sexy department. Too much makeup all those distortions that take away and don't add. All their forced masculine antics looked like that forced and didn't disguise for a second their basic essence.

At first I thought it might be the 4 soldiers in drag doing the singing in the first night club scene (joking). But in any case what were enlisted recruits doing staying at a $500 a night resort hotel?

Some queen must have had a hand in the casting-- a disaster!

Recast this thing and develop the relationship with the gay soldier for more than 5 minutes and it could be a 10. Put Yossi on an extreme make over weight and chin implant.... and get some masculine normal actors for the soldiers. Get the actor who played in Eyes Wide Open.

I give it a three for the basic story which although bit maudlin rings basically true. The undressing should have been done in the dark. No one finds hairy beer guts sexy.

There are lots of good Israeli movies this is not one. Try Eyes Wide Open for gay themed one.
