Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild

(out of 5)


While the original was badly produced, campy fun, this execrable sequel is simply bad. Retaining only one of the four original actors who comprised the film’s main cast, we catch up with Nico, Andy, Griff and Jarod after graduation and during their spring break. They have decided to take their vacation in sunny Fort Lauderdale, where they arrive and discover a young boy’s paradise: there’s a Gays Gone Wild contest that gives a prize to he who can land the most tail, which tastelessly takes the form of gaining a rubber stamp on a scorecard with each bonking during vacation. While I personally have no problem with the endless amounts of young, tight flesh being paraded with very little excuse throughout this lamentable mess, and I love that in place of gaily remaking American Pie they have decided to go with a gay version of bad 80s comedies combined with Annette Funicello beach movies, I do feel quite comfortable with taking director Todd Stephens to task for not managing to include any humour or rebellious irony in the proceedings. The loopy, whimsical jokery was the only element that made the first one worth watching (aside from the young, tight flesh), while here the awkwardness is embarrassing, and without the sense of parody the sexuality actually comes off as tacky and irresponsible instead of liberated or joyfully uninhibited.
