5.0 out of 5 stars They Pulled It Off! December 1, 2005
I saw this at the Loft Theatre in Tucson, AZ, in a special presentation by the producer. In the first 5 minutes, I said to myself, "This is the most impossible premise for a movie I've ever seen. They can't possibly pull this off!" Well, they really did! The premise is ridiculous -- a straight kid decides to play gay because a gay friend of his says that a woman he is attracted to only dates gay men. Heartfelt writing and directing and absolutely real performances from the cast members make this movie totally believable (except for one minor plot twist at the very end). And the two male leads are gorgeous! (Although their performances are REALLY what makes the movie work. Honest!) This is a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Posing July 28, 2005
This little film plays more like a French farce than a Hollywood film and if watched with that in mind it is sure to entertain. So many writers have mined this vein of boy playing girl playing boy in the web of catching the designated lover that it must be one of the more durable lines for comedy success through the years. Adding the contemporary slant of gay proposing straight posing as gay so that straight can get girl and gay can get lover works...but you have to stay with this one to catch all the double entendres that make it fun.

Classical music student Marc (a new 'Brad Pitt' like Ryan Carnes!) is a popular gay hunk who lives with Gwen (Emily Brooke Hands) who thinks she is the one responsible for making straight boys turn gay (!), so convinced is she that all the good men are gaily unavailable to her. Caleb (Scott Lunsford) is a straight guy who lives with jazz music student gay Kyle (Jim Verraros) in a purely roommate situation. Caleb, after an hilarious opening physical setup encounter with Tiffani (Rebekah Kochan), is convinced that gay men have an easier time of getting partnered than straight men. At a party Caleb meets Gwen who thinks Caleb is with Kyle, Caleb wants Gwen, and Kyle wants the apparently aloof Marc. Kyle convinces Caleb that if Caleb poses as gay he will gain entry into the Gwen/Marc abode and have access to Gwen while Kyle will have access to Marc. A spur of the moment telephone sex call (Gwen is attempting to turn on Caleb in front of Marc) results in Caleb and Marc 'hitting it off' much to the confusion of everyone. Add a dinner party for the four people involved which Caleb's ever-so-accepting family also attends and the whole situation explodes. How this whole schema plays out is the punch line of the film and all's well that end's well!

3.0 out of 5 stars freaky. kinky. and weird. January 3, 2007
It is very obvious, as soon as you start watching this movie, that this is a low-budget kind. Yet, despite its cheap quality, it's somewhat funny and plain weird. Just be in the mood to watch something zany before you pop in this DVD.

First of all, this movie carries the message that gay men are often surrounded by women. Not only that but that gay men and women friends share affection, which can lead to sex. O.....k!

So, the movie opens with Caleb and his girlfriend Tiffani. At first, it looks like they must be acting for a porn film. Actually, they were just role-playing. Tiffani isn't impressed with Caleb and dumps him.

Dejected, Caleb goes home to his gay roommate, Kyle (Jim Verranos). (What ever possess Jim to do this film?) From Kyle, Caleb is led to believe that sex sometimes happens between gay men and their women friends. So, Caleb decides to declare himself gay so he can land himself a woman.

Next to enter the picture are Gwen and Marc. Gwen and her gay roommate, Marc, are hosting a party at their apartment. Gwen has just been dumped by her obviously gay boyfriend after coming out to her. Kyle likes Marc but feels he's out of the league for Marc to notice him. Caleb sees Gwen and immediately desires her.

A perfect opportunity opens up for Marc, Gwen, Caleb and Kyle to meet and introduce each other. Kyle and Caleb agree Caleb will create an opportunity for Marc to notice Kyle. Kyle, on the other hand, will try to connect Caleb to Gwen.

Immediately, a date is set up for Marc and Caleb. When the day comes, Caleb heads over to Marc's place. While Marc is getting ready, Gwen checks him out and discovers he's a gay virgin which just turns Gwen on.

After the date is over, they go back to Marc's place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassing February 15, 2006
First, I'll start off with the good points of the movie. There actually existed mildly humorous moments, and the actors were hot. If you want a movie with a certain sex appeal, by all means, this may actually be a good movie for you.

Then end.

Aside from that, it is awful. The characters' behavior throughout the entire movie is utterly unrealistic. I found myself cringing at how stereotypes were utilized in this movie (particularly one gay character at the beginning of the movie who is portrayed in an excessively flamboyant manner). The plot is also advanced in a similarly unrealistic manner - Caleb, a straight male character decides to feign homosexuality (even going as far as engaging in some awkward homosexual activity) in order to win Gwen, a heterosexual female.

Gwen's reactions to Caleb are completely nonsensical. Even though she is under the impression that Caleb is gay, she appears to make serious attempts to seduce him. She produces a similarly absurd reaction to new information at the end of the movie when the plot finally unravels.

I would be offended if the makers of this movie honestly thought that people actually act the way the characters did in this movie. Fortunately, this was only a comedy, and only serves to entertain, not make a point. Unfortunately, I did not find myself smirking very often while I watched it. Because of this, I cannot recommend watching what is honestly another piece of assembly-line-produced trash. It's a chick flick (or guy flick, however you want to call it) that will catch everyone's attention ephemerally, then quickly be forgotten. Spare yourselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Just Love Eating Out!
Eating Out is one of the funniest movie series in all films, not just gay films. If you love sexy, raunchy comedy, this is the series to watch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain stupid.
Stupid. Truly just poorly-written gay camp trash like most of the others. Terrible characters, terrible acting, and jokes that aren't funny.

The story is cute as are the actors, though their acting chops could do with some work. I could have done without the raunchy ex-girlfriend scenes, while some were a little funny... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A gay comedy
A good attempt at a gay themed comedy. Some of the acting is a little wooden, but the actors seem to have fun with the script. A refreshing change in the gay genre.

The plot seems a little convoluted, but believe me it will make sense more in practice than in a simple synopsis. Read more
