Fun Down There (1989)

Fun Down There follows a week in the life of Buddy, a naif who arrives in Manhattan ready to fall in love. The film's dry lends itself to a refreshingly casual quality about the sex scenes-plus there's a happy ending.

A very sweet, intelligently made ground-breaking film.
21 July 1999 | by writeguySee all my reviews

Fun Down There was one of the first matter-of-fact depictions of homosexuality on film or, as Vincent Canby titled his New York Times review "Adapting to Being Gay Without Sturm und Drang." The film was shot almost entirely in master shots. This rigid camera technique distances the audience somewhat but the actors, especially Michael Waite in the lead, lend a charm and warmth that keep you caring. The film follows Buddy (Waite) on his journey from farm life in upstate New York to his happy adventures in the East Village. The film received, and deservedly so, exceptionally glowing reviews from both the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.
