Another Gay Movie (Or More Than That?)

Whenever we get together with Nick, Nathaniel, Damion, and the rest of our cinema-obsessed queer posse, a frequent topic is the sad state of independent gay cinema. Brokeback Mountain and Capote notwithstanding, most indie gay cinema these days is godawful -- sappy, cliche-ridden romances or low-tech coming out stories. So maybe I'm giving too much attention to this trailer for Another Gay Movie, which seems to be a Zucker Brothers-esque take on contemporary gay cinema. I pray that it's smart enough to follow through on its premise...an American Pie with a queer bent could be absolutely hilarious.

The cast is imaginative -- Lypsinka, Scott Thompson, Richard Hatch, Graham Norton, Noah's Arc star Darryl Stephens and porn god Matthew Rush. It opens July 28th in NYC/LA, other cities in August...what do you think? Is it crap, or worth a try?
