Zack is gaycationing in Palm Springs with new BF Benji who, to Zack's dismay, wants to try an open relationship. Adding confusion is Casey, Zack's ex, with Peter, his fake BF, plus Casey's fruity friend, Penny, and Zack's friend Lilly.
A bullied and demoralized gay student at an all-boys school uses a magical flower derived from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream' to turn many in his community gay, including a comely rugby player for himself.
When Caleb's gay roommate Kyle reveals that quite a lot of straight woman bed with gay men (ostensibly to convert them), nice guy Caleb considers going gay to improve his unsatisfactory heterosexual sex life. He shortly thereafter falls for Gwen, whom he meets at a party, but she's got her own sexual frustrations going. She's only attracted to gay men while instantly dismissive of any straight guy approaching her, such as Caleb. Kyle quickly moves on the Caleb-is-gay campaign to benefit them, but his motives aren't entirely altruistic. He longs for Marc, a desirable hottie who's Gwen's gay roommate. Unfortunately for Kyle, Marc only has eyes for Caleb. Kyle's plan: Get Caleb to date Marc so it'll bring Caleb closer to Gwen while putting himself (Kyle) in proximity with Marc (their true targets). But as Gwen starts putting the moves on her roommate's new boyfriend, and as Kyle becomes increasingly jealous of Caleb's time spent with Marc, and as Marc persists in laying the foundations ...

Wild, funny, sexy, raunchy, and excellent in every way
Eating Out (2004) C-90 min. D: Q. Allan Brocka. Scott Lunsford, Jim Verraros, Emily Stiles, Ryan Carnes, Rebekah Kochan, Jillian Nusbaum, Billy Shepard. Straight hunk Lunsford has a thing for fag hag Stiles, who only falls in love with gay men. So Lunsford's gay roommate Verraros (from American Idol fame) has an idea: pretend that he's gay. However, complications arise when Stiles hooks her new admirer up with her gay roommate Carnes and so on and so forth. In the mold of the late 30s-early 40s Cary Grant-Katharine Hepburn comic farces, this screwball delight features the most talented cast in an independent feature one could possibly ask for (especially Stiles, who definitely has a career ahead of her) and filled with laugh after laugh. It definitely helps when the cast is beautiful to look at (Verraros is hot as usual but wow, Carnes is a real looker). Wild, funny, sexy, raunchy, and excellent in every way. FYI: According to director Brocka, who introduced this film and had a Q & A (along with Stiles) at the 2004 Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, EATING OUT was shot in 10 days on a budget of just $50,000. The phone sex scene was shot in one take. RATING: 10 out of 10.
