After getting postponed, once again, Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor’s I Love You Phillip Morris will finally be released — in a limited run — on July 30. Just when you’re all tired of gay priding.
It’s been released over here in the UK for months now. Most reviews (written by straights) say how good it is.
However, a friend of mine (gay) went to see it and says he felt very uncomfortable watching it – two straights playing camp gay men – almost as if they were caricaturing us.
Me? I refuse to go see it.
strangely enough, this movie has already been shown at all maintsream theatres in St.Petersburg, Russia. and Russia is still pretty much a homophobic country.
lol pretty pathetic if you ask me
I think it’s fair to give Jim a pass on playing gay since he is such a good friend to our causes.
Two straight guys playing camp. One is a married lying con man who doesn’t pay child support and the other and effeminate jailbird. Hmmmmm. Not exactly the story I want to see.
@Erv: Did you really think gay men would be portrayed as healthy, well-balanced individuals, like some of actually are? Things haven’t changed much in Hollywood. They still frequently portray us as defective losers. Not all the time but often.
@Fitz: Really? he is such a good friend to our causes that he has to ridicule us like this? Dude, have your head examined.
