Yes `romance can be hairy', but in the mainstream it just never is normally, and that is why I got this. It is a love story about `bears', and as I am a tad hirsute myself (I think I am a Cub) I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
This is about young, cute twenty something Tyler coming out of the closet `for the second time', by admitting that he is into bears. Despite the fact that his flat mate can pull not one, but two Abercrombie and Fitch models and he is not interested! To any right thinking fan of Dorothy that is a sin.
Well he gets down on the `scene' and is treated really well as a newbie and falls for bear lothario Roger (Gerald McCulloch of CSI apparently) but he seems to be interested in , well just about every other twink going, and most of them are, going; going for it actually. That said there is only mild sex scenes in this, not enough to upset the cat , but enough to have to be shown after the water shed, if real gay films actually ever do make it to the small screen in this land of ours.
Any way he gets to meet Teddy Bears, Polar Bears, and even one worrying about his girth as he seems to be unemployable, yet his BF can't bear the idea of losing his daddy Bear.
I must say I found this endearing, enchanting, in some parts educational and in some parts funny. But this is not the all out comedy that I saw in the TLA trailer, but that is usually the norm with trailers. The main part is you can see why this won three awards all from gay film festivals. I have many gay or gay themed films and so was very pleased that this strayed from the well worn path of cute hairless guys and did it with a fair amount of furry panache. One of the really hair ones did gross me out a bit, but he was funny so all is forgiven. If you are wondering about whether to get this, I would say give it a go as alternative style films need to be encouraged.
