When you hit the fast forward button,,you know its not good.The boys were not pleasing to the eye.and to old for me. I say that because I feel boys have those troubles a good few years before the film's timescales.
The acting was pretty naff and the ending,to far fetched.I my opinion, The uglier one would have woke up. Long before,the friend could have hung himself
Why Monster Pies. Beats me or did I miss something?????

After seeing north sea texas and summerstorm i was really looking forward to watching something similar but i really could not enjoy it - Seemed way to far fetched - Awful acting and just really could not get into the story.

As others have said. this film starts of rather slow, but eventually finds its pace, and one feels for the characters. Its a worthy effort, but not good enough to warrant watching a second time.

Monster Pies is the story of two average, slightly nerdy guys in high school who fall in love and experience practically everything guys have experienced in gay movies since The Boys in the Band - in other words: too much. Too much for THIS movie, anyway. Robert Altman could have juggled this much melodrama, but this is a small movie that staggers under an unnecessarily heavy load.

It's as if Lee Galea, the movie's writer-director-producer-executive producer-editor-etc, had a long list of things he felt compelled to include in his one shot at a feature-length gay movie, and most of them just get shoehorned into the story in places where they don't fit. The result is a painfully clumsy movie, in which the viewer gets slung around from one trauma to the next, with no sense of continuity or understanding of why all this stuff is happening. It's arbitrary, it's tiring, and it makes it very hard to care about these kids, since they live in some slightly skewed universe in which nothing makes sense.

So... why did I give this wreck of a movie three stars? Because of the two kids. Five or six times in the course of this disaster there is such sweet, strong, simple and pure affection between them that it makes all the other crap worth suffering through.

It's like gentle magic. You're wrestling with this movie, trying to enjoy it but finding that an impossible feat, and then Will and Mike look at each other, and say something so tender and so lovely that you can't help loving them.

Only when the two guys are alone together is this movie worth watching, and not always even then. Those few magical scenes last a total of maybe fifteen minutes, and they're scattered through the movie almost at random, like diamonds in a landfill. They make Monster Pies well worth watching, but it's rough going in between.

Was an amazing film but very emotional. I would recommend anyone looking for a good romance film to buy this.
Was one of the best romance films i have ever watched and also the most emotional. I would watch this film again and rate this film 5 star.
