A private investigator moves into an apartment complex predominantly habituated by gay men, told by the middle-aged couple who posit themselves as the social centre of the place that the pretty blond singer across the way is someone they should set their new neighbor up with. Seems like a good idea except that the intended hook-up is rude and stuck up, but even that pales in comparison to the real problem with getting together with him: the next day he shows up murdered. Now the P.I. is hired to look for clues as to who had a motive and who could have killed the young man, which leads to interviews with a threesome couple who throw sex parties, a dentist who gets gooey eyes for the detective, and a reclusive man in a wheelchair who sees everything from his rear window. Sounds juicy but most of it is just an excuse to watch boys in tiny shorts, a blandly directed and badly acted piece of trash that doesn’t reward the indulgence (there’s pretty much no sex, barely even any kissing) to make up for its tacky trappings.
