After watching this dvd I want to see more. The story line and the quality of this independant series is excellent. Enjoyed the characters very much. Can acutally relate to one of them. I strongly suggest this dvd to anyone looking for something different. I hope the second episode comes out soon.

Before you buy or rent this you should know that it is NOT a film or a series but rather a pilot for a tv show, which Im assuming never got made. (I could be wrong, but I can find no evidence to the contrary). It is 51 min (6 of which are credits!) Its worth $1.99 for on demand but certainly not $20 to own!!!!
It is VERY low rent. It has a college film project vibe to it and actually has very little to do w/ Boystown at all. The acting is terrible (the semi-sexy landscaper/musician laughs all the time???!!) and includes the worst drag number ive ever seen. All the stereotypes are here, but with little nuance or character depth....so far. You and your gay pals grab a camcorder and reenact your favorite scenes from QAF, it'll be the same thing...probably funner!
And yet, somehow, by the end, you actually want to know more about these people and their lives. Hmmm.

Don't waste your time or money on this thing. There's nothing good about this. It's the same old hackneyed gay drivel of similar efforts. People do change, evolve and lead interesting lives in the gay community--if I can use that term in its most inclusive sense--but you'd never get that from this awful thing. Sometimes, cute boys can make-up for shortcomings, like no story, but not this. Stay away. Don't even believe the hype in the description--FALSE ADVERTISING.

I thought Boystown was entertaining, got several laughs. Alot of memerable lines especially in the party scene. Made me think of Sordid lives, low budget but entertaining. The landscaper can do my yard anytime he wants!

The acting, camera work and sound work on this screams independent low budget, which I am okay with as long as the overall story is really good. The acting was not horrible but bad enough that I kept losing interest in the movie. Two of the actors were in the movie Heels and they did a better job acting there. The actors were really cute but I just didn't care about the story as it moved on because of the acting. I felt like I wasted my money on this one.

I always thought of this series to be more of a exploitive bed-hopping narrative! This was what I saw from a distance(trailers), but never really watched the series. It is more of a window into the lives and loves of some very intense and emotional young men. This series really carries the audience into a very emotional level of these men's lives. This is very difficult to explain verbally and can only be felt on a pure emotional scale! The acting is far beyond what any superlatives could adequately describe. NJMJr!

From the opening line of mere exposition. Oh you are a success you gave up dancing to become an architect, to the unsexy sex scenes, this series promised to display the fine art of just touching the surface and going no deeper. I gave up after ten minutes

I watched this one after I had seen "Devotee" (french independent movie, check out my next review).
There are two things these two share: they last less than 60 minutes and they are low-budgets. And that's it.
In case of "Boystown" everything is way too amatourish. I admit I expected something more elaborated (judging by the cover). Instead, I got a half-baked product.
The story line is so so. Bunch of gay friends and their problems. Lot of cliches. I cannot understand how come anybody could find it interesting and wonderful (vide those two more than positive reviews).
Acting is really nothing here. The gardener, even if I think he was the hottest and he earns the second star for it, then it's not diffucult to notice that he keeps smiling all the time (was he on high while filming???).
The drag performance...One of the worst I have ever seen. And it's one that was supposed to be directed...

To make it even worse, the film is bad edited. The sound has got bad quality, which is disturbing.
If I had to live in such town, I would have moved out within first hour.
