Editorial Reviews

What does a shy, nice gay guy to do if he just isn't able to find the man of his dreams? This is the dilemma that's befallen Matt a sweet-natured but shy gay man who was dumped by his boyfriend three years ago. Matt is jealous of his roommate Danny, whose evenings are filled by a series of one-night stands, but Matt's interest in Danny fades when he moves out without warning, taking the furniture with him. Besides, Matt isn't interested in casual sex, so much as someone to love. Tired of being walked on in life and love, Matt joins Butch Camp, a training facility for the less macho among us, where manic dominatrix Samantha Rottweiler (Judy Tenuta), whips her charges into shape, literally. To enable her troops to fit in better with the manly outside world, Samantha gives each of the inmates a homework assignment: they have to go to a straight sports bar and pick up a woman. Yikes! Needless to say, Matt is not looking forward to this project, but he goes forth with grim determination, swilling beer and objectifying women with the best of them, until he meets Janet, who is about to give her boyfriend Rod the old heave-ho. Matt takes one look at Rod and senses there's something about him that Janet hasn't quite figured out. But he will certainly find out

I put off buying this DVD for over a year, as I thought it was just going to be another campy farce. Not that I have anything against that, mind you. But this surprising little film is so much more than the title might suggest: it is as warm and intelligent as it is funny. For starters, in his apparent labor of love, writer/director Alessandro De Gaetano pays homage to cinema of all kinds throughout the script, with cinematic references ranging from 'Casablanca' and 'Star Wars' to 'Moonstruck' and 'Maurice'. Every character name has a Dickensian, if not to say Freudian, significance. The plot is a deftly woven blend of comedy, politics, and romance.
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.

This movie is so funny! I saw this film at the Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and never stopped laughing.
I enjoyed it.

Once you get past the dated camp that permeates the movie, it's still pretty bad. The acting is mostly terrible, but I will say that the romance between Matthew and Rod is oddly sweet and the only worthwhile part of the movie. There were a few funny parts as well. Sweet in a b-movie kind of way.

Thoroughly enjoy watching this film over & over. It's great fun. Camp (but not in a drag-queen way), a little romantic and lots of fun as we watch the hetero oppressors get their comeuppance. The acting is not the best, but who cares? This is simply fun. Only camp-o-phobes or people expecting deep meanings to their films would not enjoy this movie.

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 shock value. Quite cute.
