TLA Releasing
In select cinemas on 29 August

So I guess there’s this weird sub-genre in gay cinema of soft porn meets light horror.  “Another Gay Movie” certainly has those elements in there but moreover, it’s a VERY colourful comedy.  This would be the sequel to the FIRST gay movie, which featured cameos aplenty from the icons du jour.  This go ’round gets the party started with Perez Hilton in a myriad of roles, all of which are quite campy and fun.  Then it’s onto our four leading men: Nico (Jonah Blechman), Andy (Jake Moser), Griff (Aaron Michael Davies) and Jarod (Jimmy Clabots) who head down to Ft. Lauderdale for a very dirty Spring Break.  There are mermen, evil gay-doers, wigs aplenty and appearances by the likes of RuPaul, Lady Bunny, Wil Wikle and more.  The endless pop culture references include ‘The Brady Bunch,’ “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” and it’s all just soooo over-the-top.  I mean, sure, it’s fun, but when the camp becomes porn which becomes zombies eating the gays, the laughter turns to cringes which just make (at least this WASP) turn away.  Plus there’s a whole bit with crabs (yes, that kind, but played by the other kind) which could make anyone squeal with terror.  Ah well.  I’m sure that extreme camp has its audience, it just ain’t me.
