Worst Gay Movie Ever! (And, That's Saying Something)
25 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

If there was an awards committee searching for the most horrendous gay-themed film of all time, this would be the only nomination. There are no redeeming qualities about the script, the acting or the directing.

The previous post, giving this film such rave reviews has to be from the director or a friend of the director because even TLAvideo (who gets a pick chunk of its revenue from gay films of varying qualities) can't recommend it.

Back to the drawing board for these obviously amateur filmmakers. Better luck next time.
