If you can imagine Lethal Weapon with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as younger, hotter ex-boyfriends, you'll have the basis for Hot Guys With Guns, a modern take on the old-fashioned detective story. It's Chinatown meets Boystown.

Danny Lohman and Patrick Armstrong - nicknamed Pip - are gay, one time lovers, and recovered best friends from their romantic split living in Los Angeles.

Another typical gay movie, drawing an audience only because as gays, we hope it might be good and we should see it. To get the 8/10 posted here, those associated with the film must pushed every person they knew to make a favorable review.
Seriously, we saw this as part of the LGBT film fest at Lincoln Center in NY and couldn't believe it was selected for viewing. Its just Noah's Ark with guns and a bad crime plot. And in response to their superficial lure of "Hot Guys," well, no, not really. There must be SOOO many other films more worthy of selection. Major disappointment!
On the upside, other films in this fest have been very good.
