I am a 19 year old gay boy so anything gay is of course going to attract my attention. I thought this looked like some under the budget film made that you would see in the 5 dollar bin at wal-mart or something. I was so surprised by how much I actually fell in love with the movie. The movie plays out like a mean girls more centered on Damian instead of Cady. It's funny and perfect for gay and straight people. So grab your GBF or SBF or BF or BFF and watch this movie.

Yes another gay comedy from America and it is actually rather good. Meet Tanner (Michael J. Willet) he is in the closet as is his best mate Brent Van Camp (Paul Iacono). They are students at North Gateway High - the only school in America that does not have an `out' gay. This poses a problem for the fashionista Queen biatches who rule the school and who have all learnt that the latest must have fashion accessory and statement of social coolness is a G.B.F. Yes a gay best friend.

As luck would have it the new `Guydar' app is not too far away and as well as helping guys hook up it also allows GBF recruiters to track down their nearest potential recruit. Well as you can guess it is not long before Tanner is outed but with consequences both expected - such as homophobia and unexpected - a totally new cool bunch of friends. And I am glad to say hilarity does ensue.

This also tries to take some issues seriously that includes stereotypes, fashion slaves, faith and friendship. The laughs are not constant but there is more than enough to keep your interest. Everyone does a good job in the acting department and Brent's mum is played beautifully by Megan Mullally (`Will and Grace and `30 Rock'). There is no bedroom stuff to worry about and it runs for just over an hour and a half. This is light hearted fun that will not reveal anything new but should raise a smile - recommended.

I expected so much from this movie with all the good reviews out there! And most of us had to wait almost a year to get to see the movie, but it's really worth it once you see it.
"GBF" becomes an instant teen classic like Mean Girls and Clueless (like it says on the cover), the script is full of awesome lines that will become as classic as the ones from the two teen classics I mentioned. The cast is really great, everyone plays well their role, and even if it GBF becomes goofy at times, they know how to be sensitive to all the gay kids that are out there, this movie is just more than just stereotypes (the film has the typical high school kids: the popular girls, the non-popular kids, the outsiders, the homophobes...), it's about accepting yourself! Although it's a little predictable, the movie still makes you laugh with so many pop culture mentions, and probably if you're only a teen/young adult you will understand the jokes of the movies.
I honestly don't care about the clothes the characters wear on a movie or TV shows, but the clothes worn on GBF are awesome; everybody's outfits are great, and I bet they will become as classic as the ones from Clueless! Darren Stein directed an amazing film, and it's really worth all the wait. Even straight people will enjoy it! Give it a try without judging it! I had a great time and I see myself watching it over and over again.

I had no idea this movie existed until I ran across it during a recent Amazon k-hole. I added it to my watchlist and streamed it the day it was available.

If you ask me for criticisms of the movie I could go on for days. The acting is okay but not awesome. The story is shallow and predictable with weird developments that may have been the result of less than stellar editing. The characters are thin and one-dimensional. The portrayals of gays, Mormons, blacks, and every minority group are stereotypical to the point of being offensive. The make-up artists did a horrible job trying to make these characters look like high school students (the girls were crusty and one of the boys was dolled up like Jerri Blank from Strangers With Candy). The list could go on. So I can't figure out why this movie worked, but it is definitely one of the most adorable movies I have seen in a long time.

There are great one-liners. The scene with Megan Mullally watching and commenting on Broke Back Mountain is one of the best. "Oh, Heath, it's freezing. Swallow your pride and go in the tent. Well, I guess necessity is the mother of invention."

Ultimately, my advice is WATCH THIS MOVIE! You probably won't find anything redeeming in it, but you will definitely enjoy it.

So here I was thinking that this would be some puffy, bubblegum cute kind of predictable movie. I was right and loved every minute of it! Sometimes you just need to shut down the brain and have a few laughs. 2 friends, both gay, one wants to come out and the other doesn't so what happens when the reverse happens...here is that story. On top of that, you have the girls from the top clicks in school who all want that very trendy "GBF" (gay best friend). The 2 boys in question are perfect, the girls are perfect and my favorite has to be Megan Mullaley as Brent's mother, he thinks she doesn't know...but she does. The movie night is very funny. Michael J. Willet is terrific as Tanner. There are the usual lessons and everyone learns them but really just have some good times with the wit. Definitely not cerebral and there is a kiss between Brent and Tanner if that bothers you, otherwise it is a lot of fun.
