Gay Essential Films To Watch, Another Gay Movie

Another Gay Movie is a gay romantic comedy in the style of American Pie. The story centres on four openly gay teenagers Andy (Michael Carbonaro) the awkward one, with a penchant for his mother’s fruit and vegetables, Nico (Jonah Blechman), the most effeminate of the four, Jarod (Jonathan Chase) handsome yet insecure and Griff (Mitch Morris) nerdy and secretly in love with Jarod. The four have been unsuccessful in their attempts to lose their virginity and so make a pact to lose it before their lesbian friend Muffler (Ashlie Atkinson) hosts her Labour Day party at the end of the summer.

Featuring many gay celebrities including Graham Norton (as Mr Puckov) and Scott Thompson (as Mr Wilson), the film is a series of hilarious escapades as the teenagers attempt to fulfil their pact, often with hilarious or tragic results. On the night of the Labour Day party, when they have changed their attitudes to sex, they are finally successful.

Although presented as a comedy, there is a serious side with the main theme of the movie being that of friendship and loss of innocence as the boys experience the rite of passage as they undergo the transition from boys to men.

Another Gay Movie


“In his director’s statement, filmmaker Todd Stephens proclaims that he wants his latest effort to be “the gayest movie ever made.” Damn if he doesn’t succeed.”
   Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

“The idea of a gay version of “American Pie” might not seem too tasty, but Another Gay Movie offers a fabulous surprise in not only matching that rude boy classic’s unapologetic rude humour but by establishing its own identity as a genuinely funny and often touching coming of age comedy.”
Phil Hall, Film Threat

“Stephens stages Another Gay Movie in a style of low-budget fluorescent overkill, but a handful of the gags are low-down funny.”
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Tim Katenecker wrote the story with Todd Stephens writing the screenplay.
