A bullied and demoralized gay student at an all-boys school uses a magical flower derived from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream' to turn many in his community gay, including a comely rugby player for himself.
Paul and Eddie have just begun previews for the new Off-Broadway musical "Adam and Steve Just the Way God Made 'Em." Their lives strangely mirror the characters they are playing. Paul is looking for the perfect man and Eddie is dealing with how his sexuality and faith can mix. After yet another disastrous dating experience, Paul has an epiphany. He is done dating and just wants to be a slut like the sexy chorus boys that share his dressing room. Eddie has to tell his parents that he's gay and is starring in a show that calls the bible the "Breeder's Informational Book of Living Examples". Eddie comes out to his family and Paul goes on Manhunt. Eddie's parents are destroyed by the news and Paul can't even have a good one-night stand. But after musical numbers with scantly clad tap dancing angels, a retelling of Genesis, tele-evangelists, a camp that attempts to turn gay kids straight, and a bunch of showtunes, everyone realizes that life gets better once they accept who they really are...Written by

Cain, get that book mama's been working on.
You mean the "Breeder's Informational Book of Living Examples?
Yes, honey. But we call it the B.I.B.L.E. for short.
What are you writing it for?
We have to teach our descendants to hate the gays.
Do you think this book will be enough to warn them in the future? What if they don't believe it?
They'll believe anything they read. Five thousand years from now, they won't even know who wrote the damn thing!

Just for the misuse of his name in this pathetic attempt at a 'musical'. I'm gay and I'm an actor and a singer so I have done a LOT of musicals, and this is just pathetic. About the only thing 'realistic' about this are the 'chorus boys' and gay porn star Brent Corrigan as a hustler. As to the musical numbers, well there is a little going on in about 2 of the songs, but the rest are just abysmal, and in keeping with the current Broadway trend of decidedly lame musicals. They would have done better to take established songs and do a 'parody' or do something a la 'Avenue Q'. I've seen amateur drag shows with more energy than the abysmal 'musical' in this tired, trite film. How anyone got the backing to do this is beyond me. And the acting is horrid for the most part, especially the 2 leads. As to the 'sex'...YAWN!!! They do it better on QAF. I guess I was hoping for too much when I saw the title. And since when can't good friends also be lovers...and vice versa? Oh, and why did they have to make 'God' a fat, ugly, old queen who couldn't act his way out of the proverbial paper bag. I mean I'm gay, fat, old and ugly, but at least I know how to act and not act like a raving queen...and I can sing.
