Butch Camp is a defense class for put-upon gays, run by outrageous, foul-mouthed, wise-cracking 'Sam' Rotweiller. Judy Tenuta is both butch and camp as Sam. Arch-wimp Matt (played by cute Paul Denniston like Woody Allen on speed) is underpaid, overworked, afraid of love and, fed up, he enrolls in the course. For his first assignment, he must go to a sports bar armed with butch vocabulary cards and infiltrate 'the enemy'. He encounters manipulative Janet Cockswell (yes, that's right), her gorgeous boyfriend Rod (!), and his friend Woody (!!). Rod is played by wonderful Jason Teresi, the sweetest hunk ever, without whose warmth, beauty, rye humor, and delightfully mischievous personality as a foil to Matt's nervous negativity, the film would not have worked. Matt is surprised to find someone 'straight' who is so sensitive, literate, and musical, with whom he has so much in common. Dismayed, disarmed, and despite his self-imposed aloofness, Matt starts to fall in love as Rod takes him under his wing. Janet and Rod are both attracted to Matt's bashful eccentricity.
Rod quietly and steadfastly pursues the hapless, defensive Matt.Read more ›
I enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, what I hate about the DVD is that the manufacturer converted the standard definition version of the film to a pseudo-widescreen format by cropping the top and bottom of each frame effectively losing a third of the picture. I don't mind when manufacturers offer that as an option alongside the original version of the film, but it's extremely annoying when they offer that as the only viewing option. Consequently, I prefer to watch the VHS version of the film over the DVD version.

I had to stop watching this one 'cause the level of my irritation reached dangerous level. Was it the silly script? Probably. Was it the main character? For sure. Read morePublished on June 22, 2011 by Pitbulltje
Sure, the acting is beyond bad and I spotted the boom/mic in at least four scenes. However, at its heart, this is a very sweet romantic comedy with a big ol' pinch of raunch for... Read morePublished on January 4, 2005 by Peg DeLorca
