So much fun
26 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film is about a gay guy who got outed in high school. He instantly becomes the most sought after guy by the hottest girls in school.

The script of "G.B.F" is great! The story is hilarious right from the start, with the hottest girls wanting to have a gay best friend for various reasons. Tanner enjoys the new found attention, and he instantly becomes the coolest guy in high school. Watching the girls battle it out for the gay best friend title is so funny, the battle is so full on, with loads of attitude. The characters are all very developed and differentiated. I really like the fact that even the supporting characters are memorable, like the Asian guy and the Mormon guy. It's such a drama filled fun film, I really enjoyed watching it.
