DEAR BOYS explores the sexual fantasies of a middle-age writer and the handsome young men who dominate his life. Wolf, a successful writer of romantic novels, is plagued by self doubt and writer's block. Though pleasant looking and well-preserved, he fears age will rob him of the youthful companionship he so desperately craves. With the help of his equally randy and manipulative young sex partner, Wolf plots to seduce the gentle Muskrat from the arms of a much older lover. Written by Jim Stark

This movie sucks....
5 April 2001 | by evissumSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the poorest excuses for a film I have ever seen.

The tape box gives an impression that it is an award winner and contains controversial male nudity.

I would like to know what kind of award, if any, this movie ever won. And the nudity is unerotic and nothing I would consider controversial. And the guys aren't that goodlooking either.

I should have known the tape box didn't know what it was talking about when the front said the movie was in Danish and the back said the movie was Dutch.

Two of the characters are called boys, but they are in their 30s at least and not all that goodlooking. The other older main character is crass throughout, going as far as putting his penis on a plate for breakfast, farting in a wine glass and blowing bad breath in the face of someone he is supposedly trying to seduce.

And while all movies don't have to have a plot, I kept asking what the point of any of this junk was.

Keep away from this film. There are other much more erotic films and much more artistic films from The Netherlands, and almost every other country.
