Fast, fun and sexy what more could you want from a film? --Raymond Murray

Product Description

TRAVEL back to Texas, 1982, where the world is ruled by big hair, synth-pop and cowboy boots. Kevin (Jacob Newton) is a straight, frat-boy who enjoys bonding with his fellow schoolmates; besides, it s all about helping a buddy out, right? When he encounters Cesar (Derek Villanueva) an openly gay student, Kevin s heart starts to flutter for the young man, setting off a chain of events where sexual identity comes into question and a weekend fueled by beers will lead to multiple bed-hopping and questions about which side of the fence some of these longhorns sit on! 'Longhorns' has played in over 20 film festivals around the world and pays tribute to such Eighties comedies like 'Porky's' and 'The Last American Virgin' with a refreshingly gay twist and a big heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Freeze Frame Was Invented For This Movie! November 17, 2011
Format:DVD
Longhorns is a sexy gay comedy that is unlike most, in that it actually has far more heterosexual characters than homosexual characters. But it still can be categorized as a gay movie, since the two main characters are gay, even though one of them doesn't realize it until late in the movie. There is a sweet romance among all of the comedic moments, and there are a couple of scenes that tug at the heartstrings. Oh, and the nudity. Good God, the nudity. There are five full frontal scenes. All the male actors in the cast show their "longhorns". And Dylan Vox is hilarious in the role of Steve. Everytime he's on screen, be prepared to laugh. Longhorns isn't the best of its type to be released this year (I liked Eating Out: Drama Camp more), but it's still well worth watching if you're gay or just "curious".

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, lives up to the hype November 16, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
longhorns was a nice movie. Was it groundbreaking cinema? No. Was it ever intended to be in the Oscar race? No. It's a cute gay love story about life in the closet in the 80's. It is short (clocking in at only 75 minutes), but that just means you don't have to worry about any slow points. in actuality i think they could have used about fifteen more minutes in the middle before Jacob Newton's character went running off to the cabin in the woods with his high school buddies, but that's just me. The acting was above average for low-budget indie. The chemistry between the characters was (mostly) believable. Derek Efrain Villanueva is wonderful, and i fell for him almost as quickly as Jacob Newton did in the movie. WELL worth the rental, and i will be buy a copy for myself as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun movie November 25, 2011
By Jeff B
Format:DVD
I wanted to see this movie when it recently played at the local LGBT film festival, but I missed the screening. So I went today and picked up a copy of it on DVD and am glad I did. It's a fun movie. It takes me back to my college days in the early 80's, and some of what happens in the movie, I KNOW was going on at school, and probably more so today. All the actors do a really good job, especially Dylan Vox who is hilarious. And I also like that 'everything' is shown and not edited. You can tell that it was shot on a small budget and on a tight schedule, but it's also not meant to be the next 'Brokeback Mountain'. I've certainly seen much worse filmed indie movies before. So if you're looking for a fun romp, check this one out.

This could have been a really good movie, but it wore out its one-joke theme - straight guys who love nothing better than masturbating together while watching porn - about the third time it played out. That may be a powerful and persistent fantasy and an infallible source of amusement for lots of gay men, but it's not for me, and watching it in a movie gets old very fast. It wasn't even remotely believable the first time it happened, and it got less believable every time.

The second recurring theme has one man stripping completely naked and standing still for another, fully clothed man to ogle. Each of the five main characters did it once each, with another of the five (two, in one instance) as the clothed ogler. Was that supposed to be funny too, or was it just an extremely clumsy way to get as much full frontal (but as sterile as a nun) nudity as possible into the movie?

So the movie is almost unbearably contrived, stupid and unfunny. It has two redeeming strengths, though.

Three of the main cast members are genuine Southerners who talk with real Southern accents, not the Hollywood fake-Southern accents non-Southern actors always affect (even Meryl Streep can't get it right) in movies. Non-Southerners must not be able to tell the difference, but I can, and as a long-time transplant to the North, hearing people who talk like me on screen warms my heart and points out how very, very rarely it happens. Even Southern actors almost never use their native accents in movies, which is sad.

The movie's other strength is the cast, particularly Derek Villanueva and Dylan Vox, who shine (Jacob Newton, though sort of cute, is a little weak as the lead). I wish someone would remake Longhorns with the same cast but as a serious movie, not a very lame, very unfunny comedy.

Format:DVD
The scene is a Texas university in 1982, where "good ol' boy" Kevin sees his gay fantasies come into scary reality, as he has an impromptu sexual encounter with a self-assured fellow student. Like any "straight" boy, Kevin freaks out, and quickly heads out to join a couple of his best friends at a country cabin ... where we learn how some of his fantasies got originated.

It's a rather unambitious but entertaining and funny film, by the same writer/director who brought you "Rock Haven" and "Redwoods," which had similar vibes. I thought the acting was capable enough, and the gay character, Caesar (Deek Villanueva), was written as non-stereotypical and intelligent. Unfortunately, the "straight boy" characters (which make up most of the cast) didn't fare as well, and were largely portrayed as cartoonish, macho wannabes.

Not rated, but would be rated a heavy R for full frontal nudity and simulated sex. Extras on the DVD were a bit confusing. Many of the "deleted scenes" were actually in the film, and there is an "interview" that is completely unintelligible due to very poor sound. Those, and the film, could have been a lot better with a minimal amount of additional effort. I give it only three stars out of five.
