Heya Dekkoo-ers! Happy post-Thanksgiving! I hope you had a great time with your loved ones or that random hot guy that wouldn’t leave the next day because he was using you for your Dekkoo subscription (a gay cinema nerd fantasy…). Everyone knows that the best part of Thanksgiving isn’t the actual dinner, but the countless meals you can make out of the leftovers. This train of thought led me to re-watch one of my favorite gay films of all time: ‘Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds‘. Get it? Oh lord I hope so…

Way back when in Dekkoo Dispatch Number 2 I talked up ‘Eating Out‘ – the first in a series of five films conceived by Q. Allan Brocka. The popularity of the first resulted in a sequel just two years later that exceeds the first in so many ways. The original will always have the charm of razor-sharp writing in a very low-budget production, but the second film obviously benefited from a larger budget and a new eye behind the camera, Phillip J. Bartell, a prolific movie editor and director of ‘L.T.R.’ (probably the best short film on ‘Boys Life 4’). Phillip later went on to co-write every subsequent Eating Out installment.

Our story continues a few months after the events of the first film with two breakups happening in quick succession. Gwen (Marc’s fag hag who loves to date gay guys) can’t hold onto her boyfriend because he’s tired of pretending to get it on with guys and Kyle (our insecure but cute protagonist) gets dumped by Marc (hottt!) for not being confident enough in himself and their relationship. Oh and in case you’re confused about the character of Marc looking a little different, you’re not crazy, there was a casting change that in my opinion is for the better. Brett Chukerman now works for HSN and I’m truly jealous of all the housewives that get to drool over him during the day.

All these single people need someone to lust over right?? Enter Troy (from Troy, Illinois!) a ridiculously chiseled and tan fellow college student who happens to be a nude model for the art classes as a side-hustle. After Troy drops his robe for the class (btw yes you do see ‘it’) Gwen comes up with a scheme to pretend Kyle is an ex-gay to impress Troy who is slightly ashamed of his attraction to guys. Of course Marc notices the irresistible Troy as well and tries to seduce him using gay-bro tactics. It’s a race to the finish line to see who can sleep with him first!

There are some great new characters in the sequel including Mink Stole, (a John Waters regular who goes on to have a supporting lead in the other Eating Out films) Scott Vickaryous, (who plays the leader of the ex-gays), & Adrián Quiñonez (the sexy Octavio). In usual Eating Out style there are a couple of signature long sexy scenes plus plenty of full frontal nudity to whet your palate. The lines are endlessly quotable and it’s a great gay party movie. What are you waiting for?!?! Watch it!

DEKKOO DISPATCH 002 – ‘EATING OUT’

Title: Eating Out

Director – Q. Allan Brocka

Starring – Scott Lunsford, Jim Verraros, Emily Stiles, Ryan Carnes

Release Date – February 14, 2004

_____________________________________________________

Q. Allan Brocka is known for writing and directing some of the funniest and sexiest gay cinema in the 2000’s. From ‘Boy Culture‘ to ‘Rick and Steve the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World’ he’s managed to bridge the divide between low-budget film making and a damn funny movie.

He got his big break in 2004 with the now-classic camp comedy ‘Eating Out‘ which went on to become a gay franchise with four sequels! Four! How many other gay films have had that honor? I can’t think of any. Don’t worry, they will all be arriving on Dekkoo in the coming weeks.

Eating Out‘ stars Jim Verraros (an openly gay contestant from the first season of American Idol) as Kyle, a young gay boy who’s fallen head over heels for his straight roommate Caleb (how many of you out there have done that before?). He’s also in love with Marc, the mega-hottie gay at school and Gwen, Kyle’s right-hand gal and self-proclaimed bitch who can’t seem to stop dating gay guys. When Kyle pushes Caleb into pretending he’s gay so he can meet Marc things take a turn when Marc falls for Caleb.

But that’s really only a fraction of ‘Eating Out’s’ charms. Starting with the first installment, there’s always an incredibly spectacular (long) sex scene that involves someone remotely telling the participants what to do (don’t forget to use the magic word…). Also included in the price of admission is full frontal nudity, hilarious offensive jokes about the holocaust, and awkward family dynamics!
