Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss (1998)


Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB

USA, 1998.  Revolutionary Eye LLC.  Screenplay by Tommy O’Haver.  Cinematography by .  Produced by .   Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Playful and colourful comedy about a photographer (, pre-Will and Grace fame) who falls obsessively in lust with a poster-boy waiter (), but has no idea if the boy bats for his team or not.

He hangs out with him at parties, they become friends, Hayes becomes fixated, and follows the young man to Catalina where he’s been offered a modeling job.  Along the way, our hero has many loveable friends, sees a few drag shows and makes sure to get personal enough to endear us to him completely.

Genuine feeling between the characters and a recognizable look at the complications of relationships based more on curiousity and pride than actual love makes the film well worth seeing. Look for a cameo by Andy Warhol superstar .
