1h 19min | Comedy, Romance | 5 July 2007 (Germany)
How far would you go to get the person of your dreams? In Eating Out, Kyle convinced his straight roommate to pretend to be gay to get the girl. Now, with the help of Gwen and Tiffani, Kyle pretends to be heterosexual to land Troy, the new guy — and nude model — in town, only to find himself joining the campus ex-gay support group and nabbing a girlfriend! Kyle’s ex boyfriend, Marc, is horrified at the plan and decides to pursue the confused Troy with his own tactic — being his out gay self. Who will win him first?
Kyle (Jim Verraros) understandably falls in love with nude model Troy (Marco Dapper). However Troy is ashamed of past gay experiences he had and wants to be str8. So Kyle pretends HE’S str8 and used to be gay to lure Troy into bed. Meanwhile Kyle’s ex Marc (Brett Chukerman) finds this out and now HE wants to get Troy into bed…
OK–I HATED the original “Eating Out”. It was boring, stupid, unfunny and kept teasing the audience that we were gonna see some hot man on man action–but we never did. The acting was dreadful too. As you can see the plot of this one is ridiculous too–but this movie is so entertaining who cares? It moves quickly (it’s only 80 minutes), looks great and is much funnier than the original. Also we see plenty of hot guy on guy kissing, gay sex (not explicit) and frontal nudity on Dapper and Chukerman (both of who are very handsome with great bodies).
The acting is (for the most part) good. Verraros (the only holdover from the original) is a little bit TOO nerdy and needy–but he tones down his performance as the film progresses and actually is very affecting by the end. Dapper is unbelievably handsome with a great body and–surprisingly–is a very good actor. I was impressed with how talented he was–he perfectly shows his characters confusion. Chukerman is even better as Marc. A very easy-going, relaxed and believable performance. All the other actors are OK–the story basically centers on these three guys.
This is no great milestone in gay cinema but it was fun, breezy and entertaining. Also the casual frontal nudity and gay kissing just made it better. Worth catching–especially for a gay audience.
