The film revolves around four gay teenagers: curious Andy, flamboyant Nico, jock Jarod, and geeky Griff. These four boys want to have sex, but can't find anyone to do it with. It's their graduation day and their lesbian friend Muffler's having her graduation party. The next morning, the boys make the pact to have sex before the end of the summer. Andy has his eye on the math teacher Mr. Puckov, Nico searches the Internet for a man, Jarod falls for a rival baseball player, and Griff is deciding within his crush on Jarod or his exercise teacher. In the tradition of "American Pie", "Another Gay Movie" will bring you hysterics.Written by
The role of Sloppi Seconds was originally written as Kiki, the cabaret character created by Mx Justin Vivian Bond. When Bond turned down the movie offer, the part was rewritten specifically for Mink Stole and turned into Sloppi Seconds, a transsexual. Her scenes would ultimately be cut from the film, aside from a brief profile shot where she sits between Jarod, Griff, and Beau in Bodangles. See more »
After Griff's confession to Jarod at Muffler's Labor day party, we see a fully clothed Griff jump on a completely naked Jarod. In the next scene, we see Griff striping off his clothes, along with Jarod, who is completely dressed again. See more »
After the cast list in the end credits, there is a side scene where the boys dance and Mrs. Hunter and Muffler begin making out, Jarod asks Muffler what her secret is, and she reveals she has an extremely long tongue with a piercing. See more »
Nor is it just "another one." It's an unabashed, silly comedy where being gay is strictly a non-issue.
It's also a non-stop string of sex jokes from beginning to end, rather like a queer "American Pie" or "Porky's." In the showing I attended, it looked like a 100% gay audience, so it was interesting to take a laugh-meter reading of their response. I'd say about a third belly-laughter, another third moderate chuckles, and the rest sort of just sat there.
Director-screenplay writer Todd Stephens attempts spoof every sex situation imaginable, with varying degrees of success. There's a dramatic scene from his own "Edge of Seventeen," along with other pop film and TV sitcom episodes. All become grist for Stephens' raunchy, horny mill.
It's a loud, insane, in-your-face frolic that at times assaults the senses. The result: a new low--or high--in bad taste, depending upon your point of view.
For sure, it's not just another gay movie; rather, a compendium of how far we've come and where we now are in colloquial film comedy.
Makes one wonder, what's next?
