Ovaj film se baš i ne može svrstati u gay themed movies iako je tokom cjelog trajanja filma u centru pažnje jedan momak koji se pretvara da je gay. U samom startu film je za prosiječnog pedera postavljen naopako! Str8 koji se pretvara da je gay je nešto što će svaki prosječno iskusan peder razotkriti! Još ako je taj strejter zgodan i privlačan za pet munuta istina izlazi na vidjelo.

 

 

 

 

Home of Phobia2 Teže je pronaći pedersku skrivenu stranu kod “str8” čovjeka, nego ovo. Ali ako zanemarimo ovu lošu predpostavku, film se može pogledati i u porodičnom ambijentu, jer vašeg punoljetnog sina i momka sigurno neće zatrovati bezobraznom golotinjom muških tijela.

Priča se odvija u gužvi studentskog života u nekom od američkih univerziteta ili ti sveučilišta kako je meni draže reći, jer tu se zaista svašta može naučiti. Iako sam prošao kroz sve faze studentskog načina života, zaista nisam nikada primjetio da postoje tu muški ili ženski klanovi kao u ovim američkim filmovima. A baš bih volio da tako nešto ima kod nas, stim da bih ja morao biti vođa!:) U tako jednom ženskom klanu zgodni djevojčurak dobije zadatak da slomije srce nekom pederu. Nesrečnim slučajem naletu na nespretnog momka koji u želji da je osvoji izrekne čuvenu rečenicu:”Ja sam gay!”

Home of Phobia3 I nakon toga mora da prođe kroz sva sranja koja se dešavaju pederu koji uleti u coming out!

Obilje simpatičnih i smješnih scena u kojima se nesretni mladić našao i po svoj prilici neobično dobro snašao učiniće da vam ovaj film ugodno utroši oko sat i po vremena.

Mene je podsjetio na moju omiljenu zabavu: “kako u str8 momku otkriti gay stranu i ukazatu mu na nju! ?”

Nakon što sam završio fakultet zaposlio sam se i naravno iznajmio stan koji sam dijelio sa cimerom kojeg sam zvao “ljubavi moja” Pošto on zaista nije peder lako je prihvatio moju zajebanciju i kada god smo bili sami zajebavali smo se kao da smo najzaljubljeniji par. Jednom prilikom mi je rekao da koliko god se mi zajebavali na taj račun , da me zaista iskreno voli i da bi volio da ima curu koju će voljeti kao i mene! Nakom jedno godinu dana našao je!

With intermittently amusing glee, writer-director Ryan Shiraki’s tyro film, “Freshman Orientation,” frolics through the political minefields of a typical college campus. Pic’s straight hero, a foolhardy college dude, reckons he’ll play along with a cute gal’s false assumption that he’s gay, leading to a politically incorrect but ultimately exhausted social satire on sexual and social expectations. Distrib Regent may try to target gay auds, but could find resistance, given the pic’s guy-gets-girl happy ending. Broader marketing pitch in vid may be able to grab a hungry college crowd.

vlcsnap-733252 Clay (Sam Huntington) views college life as one long sexual adventure before his boring adult years, but he soon finds that picking up chicks isn’t exactly like walking through the produce section. When his first roomie accidentally kicks the bucket, he enlists the far more subdued Matt (Mike Erwin) as his new companion, while fending off the verbal slings of ex-g.f. and current lesbian punkette Marjorie (Marla Sokoloff).

Shiraki’s script cleverly dovetails Clay’s interest in sorority gal Amanda (Kaitlin Doubleday) with Amanda’s mission — arranged by mega-bitchy sorority leader Serena (Jud Tylor) — to woo and then dump various “loser” guys. Amanda’s target candidate is supposed to be gay, and through a comic mixup stirred by Amanda’s potty-mouthed pal Jessica (Heather Matarazzo), Amanda mistakenly believes Clay fits the bill. Sensing a choice opportunity to get cozy with this hottie, Clay plays along and seriously gets into his new persona.
Pic good-naturedly follows Clay through his somewhat unsentimental gay education, greatly boosted by jolly gay barkeep Rodney (John Goodman, having a fine old time in colorful support).

But the comedy starts sputtering as the truth about Clay’s sexual preference and Amanda’s ruse surface. It’s as if Shiraki ran out of ideas and hoped his cast would carry things. Pic lurches from incident to incident, leading to a silly knock-down-drag-out between the college radicals and conservative Greeks, with a final section that’s thoroughly out of fuel.

Huntington displays a real eye and ear for funny timing and behavior, and charms with a bad-boy glint. As a confused young man who comes out of the closet, Erwin’s Matt sometimes feels as if he’s walked in from another movie, while Sokoloff and Matarazzo have a ball with their zinger lines. Playing the aptly named Very Drunk Chick, Rachel Dratch is a lot less funny than she usually is, but proves that she’s a comic thesp with no shame.
Production package mimics the bright look of studio teen and college comedies, but at a noticeably lower pricetag. Music selections abound in cleverness, ranging from re-dos of Janis Ian to Britney Spears.
