Storyline

Jake: an unsuccessful - yet well endowed - underwear model in L.A, who finds a lucrative new line of work as a platonic escort for women of a certain age. But, just as he finds himself a deep-pocketed "sugar mama" in Barbra, he meets Norah: a stunning and laid back Yoga instructor. As Jake's success blooms, so does his love life; leading him to a crossroad that will change everything. Written by Christie Will & Jarrett Golding

I was sort of anti-climatic...
16 November 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Boy Toy" doesn't offer the viewer anything that haven't already been seen in other movies. And it seems to have been borrowing a bit heavily from some movies in particular.

Never having heard of this movie prior to sitting down and watching it, I had no idea what it was about, much less who was in it. The storyline is pretty straight forward and easy to follow; an unsuccessful model is trying to make a living in Hollywood, and he ends up as a male escort. He lands a job with Barbra, whilst dating Norah, and of course something goes awry here.

The cast in "Boy Toy" was actually quite good. There were some fairly familiar faces here and there, and people were doing good jobs with their characters and their roles. Just a shame that no one really came off a super memorable, aside from Kevin P. Farley (playing Robert), perhaps.

For a comedy, "Boy Toy" failed miserably at making me laugh. I wasn't laughing once throughout the entire movie. Now, I am not saying that it is a bad movie, not at all, it just failed to strike my funny bone. Sure there were some awkward situations in the movie, but for some reason I wasn't laughing.

There is a bunch of similar movies out there on the market, and "Boy Toy" doesn't really distinguish itself from the other similar movies. Having seen it now, I doubt that I will ever be popping the movie on for a second viewing. It just didn't have that much appeal in it.

If you are in for an evening's worth of comedy, there are far better choices available. "Boy Toy" might be great for you if you are a die hard fan of anyone on the cast list, otherwise this is just a movie that will be see and just as easily forgotten.
