As a black gay man, I was really looking forward to this movie. I saw it last year at the Gay/Lesbian Film Festival. Most of the cast and crew of the film were there telling us how "we've never seen a film like this before". I beg to differ. It was just like every white-boy gay romantic comedy I've ever seen, only in blackface. A colorful trio of pals lusting after a macho hunk that may or may not be gay. Now that's original. And am I the only gay man who doesn't have a friend who's lip-syncing drag queen? I must be by what I see in gay-indi flicks. I also think this film tries too hard to appeal to a wide audience. None of the characters seem to have any one preference for the race of the person they date. Even though I wish more gay men were that way, I find it very unrealistic to black gay life. Obviously a marketing decision, so the film wouldn't be seen as "too black". Although a disappointment, I hope this film makes money so it will open the door to more (better) black gay flicks
