      This movie is great… It’s a refreshing return to the type of comedic presence that made Jim Carrey famous.

      People have been waiting for this movie to come out for way too long. Kind of like Ricky Martin.

      Thanks to nefarious sources I got a copy of the film last year. Loved it and Ewan can play my gay boyfriend anytime.

      @David K: But I bet the movie will still be the greatest surprise of the two :)

      Oh Boy! Another gay themed film written by, produced by, directed by and starring hets! I wonder if Hollywood will have anough brass to make all the Oscar awards pro-closeted gay Hollywood will want to lavish on this movie?

      I wish this blog would dedicate as much space to queer cinema actually produced by queers, as it does to obsessing about hets.

      @Mr. Enemabag Jones: Oh man, and all those damn queers playing hets in cinema and on tv, that’s such a damned shame. We should separate the orientations, I don’t want no hets in my queers and no queers in my hets. I’m going back to my ghetto now where I’ve self-segregated.

      *eyeroll*

      It’s called mainstream cinema for a reason. Is it mainstream because it’s produced by hets? No.

      It is a wonderful film. I’d recommend it to anyone.
      I can’t believe it’s taken this long to get a release.
      It’s already available on DVD over here (UK).

      I am so pleased to finally hear this flick is finally going to see the light of day. I look forward to this true fact gay comedy.
      Jim Carrey is one of the finest comedic actors (and he can do dramatic too- I guess that makes him “versatile?”) and Ewan is just yummy.

      @Chris H:

      and all those damn queers playing hets in cinema and on tv, that’s such a damned shame.

      Why don’t you name an openly queer actor, who has had praise lavished upon them for playing straight, Chris?

      Queer actors can play straight, because we live in a straight world.

      We should separate the orientations, I don’t want no hets in my queers and no queers in my hets.

      I agree with that. Unfortunately, what would the Oscars do with their “Dying Queer” award?

      I’m going back to my ghetto now where I’ve self-segregated.

      Funny. Oddly enough, you no longer have to live in a ghetto because people like me spoke up. Todays queers have become so homogenized, that most have lost any real sense of self.

      It’s called mainstream cinema for a reason.

      No queers need apply.

      Is it mainstream because it’s produced by hets? No.

      It’s awarded, and praised, and accepted because it’s produced by hets. Straight Hollywood seems to think that queers playing queers isn’t real acting.

      If they had teamed up the gorgeous and talented Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson they would really have something!!

      @Chris H:

      Chris, I didn’t ask for names of openly gay actors. And frankly, some of those actors are anything but open.

      This is what I wrote:

      Why don’t you name an openly queer actor, who has had praise lavished upon them for playing straight, Chris?

      Actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, and Heath Ledger, Danny Miller, Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Salma Hayek, etc. All straight actors who have praised from the heavens for playing queer characters.

      How many openly gay actors have been praised for playing straight? Fawned over, and told how brave they are for taking on such a hard role?
