If you can imagine Lethal Weapon with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as younger, hotter ex-boyfriends, you'll have the basis for Hot Guys With Guns, a modern take on the old-fashioned detective story. It's Chinatown meets Boystown.

Storyline

Danny Lohman and Patrick Armstrong - nicknamed Pip - are gay, one time lovers, and recovered best friends from their romantic split living in Los Angeles. Danny is a struggling actor who supplements his income by waiting tables. He is taking a private detective class taught by former PI Jimmy Peppicelli solely as research for a role on a television crime drama for which he has an audition. Well-connected Pip lives off his wealthy, overbearing, substance indulging and off-kilter mother Patricia, in whose house he lives in a separate wing all his own. Like Patricia, Pip is a narcissist who is all about self pleasure. He has convinced himself that he has long been on the search for Mr. Right, but in reality seems content to settle for Mr. Right Now, that role currently filled by actor/model Robin, who potentially wants to be Pip's Mr. Right but is aware that he will eventually be tossed aside like all the others in Pip's life. Pip is also not averse to more than one Mr. Right Now at any ... Written by Huggo

Cable TV Cmp
1 November 2016 | by littythumSee all my reviews

Although I enjoyed Noah's Arc on LOGO- (Spearman and Stephens) that was low budget cable TV -this is film, which is supposed to be a step above cable TV.

The premise is cute and does have a different twist than a typical boy- meets-boy gay film which I admire but doesn't deliver. It's kind of like watching a reject episode of a gay Charlie's Angles. It's campy but it doesn't mean to be campy -that is the rub and why it fails.

I'm all for gay film and when I lived in L.A., I used to got to a lot of indie film screenings but this one misses the mark. I give it an A for effort but it still feels very low budge....
