Gay interest comedy spoof. When four young gay friends make a pact to lose their virginity by the end of the summer, they find themselves caught up in all sorts of outrageous situations, involving oversized sex toys, naked celebrities, masochistic teachers, and even Graham Norton.
Another Gay Movie is a fun film, certainly, that scores for outrageousness. It follows four friends who are between high school and college, who all want to have sex for the first time. Andy has a closeted gay father and a drag queen mother, and keeps raiding the fridge for vegetables … while having a crush on his teacher Mr Purkov, played by Graham Norton with a certain daring and a thick accent. Nico’s mother is in denial that he is gay, even though he is very camp with glitter, shiny leotards, makeup, etc. while Jarod and Griff secretly have the hots for each other but are convinced they are just friends. This last pair give rise to the funniest parts of the film, and are also quite touching. Griff is the science boff-type who can’t help casting sidelong glances, blushing, his glasses steaming up. Then Jarod pushes him into the pool and his clinging t-shirt reveals him to be a bit of a superman after all … But there's a long way to go at this point, and desperation pushes him to go to a club wearing an inflated pad to make his bum look bigger. He does a sexy dance on the bar wearing this and disaster strikes; it’s that type of film. Very open to every possible embarrassment surrounding sex, the film boasts a couple of porn stars as well, Matthew Rush looking super hot and being written into a very good sequence, very camp (not him) and delightful, really. A loud lesbian completes the proceedings, wiser and a complete babe magnet herself. It isn’t a deep film, and is really just a succession of sketches, but the leads are charming enough to make it an hour and a half of enjoyment, occasionally a bit OTT, but it’s all a question of where you draw the line.
This film follows the story of 4 gay friends (in American Pie-style, all trying to lose their virginity over the Summer.) The hopefuls include: Griff, a sweet, nerdy runt who secretly lusts after one of his friends; Jarod, a jock-type who feels that size unfortunately does matter; Nico, the most camp and flamboyant of the bunch who's really after a 'seasoned older gentleman'; and Andy, the character akin to American Pie's Jim, who has a penchant for small animals and large vegetables. There's a lot of icky toilet humour in the film and some very graphic sex scenes in the last 20 minutes that will shock some viewers; but it's all in good fun and laughs are to be had throughout the film. Irish funnyman Graham Norton makes a great appearance as Andy's teacher whom he has a crush on; it's a side to Norton no-one has ever seen and a side that is a must-see for his fans! There are a couple of sentimental moments in the film though they're very light-hearted. It's enjoyable to see the typical teenage boy rush-to-get-laid story told from another angle. The cast is great and there are some wonderful minor characters, including a tough lesbian stud named Muffler (very Stifler-esque) and Andy's parents, an ex-marine who tries a little too hard to understand Andy's 'inclinations' and a drag queen-like mother with comically bad make-up who wonders where her vegetables keep disappearing to. All in all a very enjoyable, silly, hilarious movie with a fun, followable story and a really good soundtrack. I'd recommend buying it and watching it over and over whenever you need a serious laugh!
Simply the wittiest, most outrageous gay movie ever. Based on American Pie and spoofing several other big name movies along the way Another Gay Movie has more than enough originality of its own to shine.
Performances are great, realistic, unknowns giving as good as they get. The jokes come thick and fast - one liners, the plot itself, visual gags, in-jokes, the laugh-at-gay-life jokes, the laugh-at-gay-stereotypes jokes. It's the most outrageous mainstream gay movie I've seen as well as the funniest - quite graphic sex scenes and acts described so not for kids! but let's face it, REALISTIC (unlike many supposedly gay movies, especially American made ones). I only wish they made more like this.
Only (tiny) negative is the dvd extras - there really aren't any, but the movie is fabulous - I watched twice in two days and I very rarely can be bothered to write a review - so... buy it now, treasure it always and tell all your friends.
Films like american pie and other "gross out" comedies have gay gays as the butt of the joke cause they're made for the str8 auidence; this however, is the all gay version that we've been waiting for. As four "OUT" college guys deal with sum of the sensitive issuses around being gay and wanting sex such as; jerkin off, improvised sex toys, dick size, roles(top/bottom), and sexual fantasies in unsutle, full frontal detail in the pursute of the ultimate goal "THE BIG A".
There is a luv story that keeps ur attention, between 2 of the guys. the acting is credible as Griff, a nerd and Jarod,the jock and self confested "power top" with size issues tackle obstacles like first time nerves and rival men as they fumble their way into each other arms; the bar scene where Griff dances on top of the bar to attract Jarod's attention away frm a rival is one of the many stand out highlights! As this film uses sterotyping like its str8 cousins there is some delibrate overactting but it doesnt feel forcd and all the cast perform well.
This is not a coming of age story, or a deeply meaningful film were the stars just pout, mournfully at the camera (reconsidering their career options probably...)like most films made for the gay audience. Its fun and not a chore to watch!!
A.G.M is a gay gross out comedy with a heart, something that american pie and its many str8 and gay clones lack.
