Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Eating Out 5: The Open Weekend

When I saw the first film in this series, who knew that soon enough there will already be 5 films in the series. I must give kudos to the producers and directors of the franchise. Lets admit it, Eating Out series are no brainers. There objective is simple, lots of skin show, keep the gays happy, make them laugh with stupid jokes and just entertain them. I call this guilty pleasure which most of us sometimes feel embarrassed to even admit to liking it.

A lot of characters are continued from the previous Eating Out series. Zack and his new boyfriend Benji are setting off to vacation at an all-male resort in Palm Springs with their MTF friend Lily. In light of the fact that there will be all these available men that are sure to be awaiting their arrival, Benji has proposed that he and Zack open up their relationship, just for the weekend. He's not ready to limit himself sexually and explains that this will be a good way for them to explore together. Zack is less than thrilled with the idea, but he's eager to keep Benji happy and, after all, he likes sex too. At the same time, Zack's ex, Casey, is making his way to the same resort with his hag-in-training, Penny. Knowing that Zack will be there with his new boyfriend, Casey immediately goes into panic mode, recruiting his new friend, Peter, to be his pretend boyfriend for the weekend, proving to Zack that he's had no trouble moving on from their relationship. But al the plans really do not go as they planned. There are series of confusions, heart aches and breaks. Zack and Benji's relationship is tested when Benji has his eyes all over the resort. Casey still has feelings for Zack which are more than evident. Lily and Penny fall for the only straight bartender in the resort and they have their own chase going on.

This film like others in the series are amateur, silly, over the top but at the same time they do touch upon various aspects of gay life and various natures of relationships specially ones that comes out of wanting to explore sexually outside that of the committed relationship. As they say that the grass is always green on the other side and our protagonists realize this soon. Boys in this film are gorgeous with perfect body and no ounce of fat. So yes, there is a lot and lot of eye candy in the film. I would not expect too much from the acting department because the story line doesn't demand any.

Just shut your brains, get some eye candy, laugh at the silly jokes because you want to and stop analyzing every single thing happening in the film. (5.5/10)
