Lionsgate’s Gay Dude Has No Choice But To Be Better Than Lionsgate’s Boat Trip

Nicholas Braun, a young actor whose hapless, Cusackian, Say Anything-ish manner brightened Disney’s unseen-by-almost-everyone teen comedy Prom, has just been cast in a teen comedy from Lionsgate. It’s called Gay Dude.

Braun will play a high school student who makes a pact with his best friend that they’ll lose their respective virginities before graduation. Then the best friend reveals that he’s the gay dude of the film’s title. Sensitive, emotionally resonant, warmly intelligent explorations of teenage sexual awakenings Pooping, vomit and farts ensue.

Okay, yes, that’s speculation, obviously, and the truth is that there’s actually hope for this thing because Alan Yang, from the excellent Parks and Recreation, will write it. It’s just that the memory of the last big gay Lionsgate movie (see above) still gives off toxic fumes, makes our fillings hurt and spawns night terrors.

      Everytime a bunch of hets get together to make a gay themed film, I know it’s going to be crap.

      Hmm, I’m almost interested. Almost, but not really.

      “Alan Yang, from the excellent Parks and Recreation, will write it”

      He wrote it years ago, and it’s both heartfelt and hysterically funny.

      It was on the 2008 Black List of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.

      Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

      My eyes…
      You know a movie’s awful when Roger Moore as a aging but spry queen is the high point of the film.

      Was that really the best name they could come up with?

      Ah, so this is what’s become of once-promising Cuba Gooding Jr. Tsk, tsk.

      The script for this movie is great – I’m really excited that it seems to be finally getting off the ground.
