If Hollywood Names A Movie Gay Dude, Is It Destined To Be Terrible + Homophobic?

With a “microbudget” of $2 million, film studio Lionsgate is moving ahead with Gay Dude, a project picked up from the Black List, that annual roster of scripts that everyone passed on. So how awful is something called Gay Dude going to be?

Actually, this could be cute. The flick is described as a coming of age comedy in the vein of Superbad. Best friends Matty and Michael decide to lose their virginity before graduating from high school, but their quest takes an unexpected turn when Matty tells Michael he’s gay. What follows is a funny, heartfelt story about friendship, prejudice, love, and the trials and triumphs of growing up.”

Can we get a 500 Days Of Summer meets Pineapple Express movie up in this bitch?

    I read the script for this over a year ago. It was great and definitely not in bad taste or offensive at all.

    Can’t wait to see it!

    It’s one of the funniest scripts out there and is absolutely inclusive. It’s also a twist on the traditional “straight guy overcomes prejudice to accept gay friend”. Instead, conflict occurs when the straight guy is too supportive of his friend’s coming out process, rushing him into situations he’s not ready for (like going to a gay bar).

    The humor is very raunchy in an American Pie kind of way. For example, when the straight kid goes online to find information about gay issues, he ends up accidentally clicking a link to a porn site that results in a thousand gay sex popups on his screen. His dad comes downstairs, sees the kid frantically trying to close the porn and the awkwardness comes in when Dad thinks the kid is gay –The dad tries to be supportive of his son coming out but the kid is straight. Other situations continue this misunderstanding gag. As for the gay kid, it’s all about him trying to continue being himself without being forced into someone else’s impression of how a gay kid should look and act.

    Glad to see it finally getting made!

    Let me guess: One guy wakes up with “Gay” tattooed on his back and the other has a “Dude” tattoo. That’s good for an entire scene right there. Oh, no, wait….

    I want to see this, I’m a teenager gawdemit! I always have to watch boring gay films like A single Man.

    Hopefully this thing makes as much as Brokeback. TWO gay themed movies making over 100 million have GOT to get a few people in hollywood to get over their prejudices and start making more movies.

    Ok, Rant over.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s the best script in the world; if they don’t change the name, it’s destined for the $5 rack of whatever stores will sell it… Honestly; “Gay Dude”? Who comes up with this crap?
