Given your positive reactions to my Does Guy-on-Guy Action Turn You On? post, I thought I’d give you guys a list of fun rom-coms featuring gay male relationships. Lots of familiar faces here. Tori Spelling!!! Guy Pierce!!! For those of you who like seeing hunky men kiss, the films below provide a bit of yummy eye candy. For those of you who think consenting adult male relationships are wrong, against God’s plan, sick or whatever, if you watch the movies below, you’ll see representations of how healthy, touching, cute, insecure, wacky, difficult, interesting and [gasp!] strikingly “human” relationships between men can be. ;) Movie summaries and taglines below are from IMDB.
Shortbus. “A group of New Yorkers get caught up in their romantic-sexual milieu converge at an underground salon infamous for its blend of art, music, politics, and carnality.”
Kiss Me Guido. “When he answered the ad for a roommate he thought that “GWM” meant… “Guy With Money?”
Camp. “After a series of Broadway flops, songwriter Bert Hanley (Dixon) goes to work at a musical camp for young performers. Inspired by the kids, he finds an opportunity to regain success by staging an altogether new production.”
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. “It’s fun, daring, over-the-top and unforgettable. It’s a road movie with attitude and the occasional frock.”
Mambo Italiano. “The son of Italian immigrants to Canada struggles to find the best way to reveal to his parents that he’s gay.”
Threesome. “Eddy and Stuart share two-thirds of a dormitory suite. Due to bureaucratic error, a woman named Alex is added to their room…”
Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss. “Billy is a gay fine-arts photographer who falls in love with straight coffee-shop waiter Gabriel.”
Another Gay Movie. “Four gay high school friends make a pact to lose their virginity before they go to college.”
Okay, so, maybe that was 9 instead of 10. I’m sure several of you know a rom-com or two that might be great for this list. Share ’em!! Free free to leave your suggestions in the comments section.
