That joy turns to horror when Cameron mentions to the worldwide audience that Howard is gay, especially horrific to Howard as he is engaged to fellow teacher Emily Montgomery, a woman with self-esteem issues as she had battled weight issues most of her life before she lost seventy-five pounds for the wedding. Howard's life is totally disrupted as Hollywood media descends on Greenleaf in order to get Howard's story.

Gay means really really happy!
17 October 1998 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

This movie was a great spoof, it was not meant to convert anyone to homosexuality... Matt Dillon as Cameron, Tom Sellek the kiss of the decade... and Joan Cusack revealing what a lot of us think about showtunes... most of all Kevin Kline can carry off this comedy as well as any member of the Monty Python clan could in the heydays of that great cross dressing show... Laugh and the world laughs with you
