There are many crazy things people do for love, to land that perfect person. Some people write poems and send flowers, others attempt to arrange serendipity, and some even go for loud obvious displays of affection (something quite common in the plots of most teenage focused films!) But “Eating Out” and the subsequent sequels takes those antics to an entirely new dimension – changing one’s sexuality. However, what seems like a great idea inevitably leads to comical disaster and the reason we watch these films.
While the first entry in this saga is not the series greatest, the entire “Eating Out” oeuvre is actually rather interesting and comical. Think of it as gay cinema’s “American Pie” saga. It’s also a series that I watch frequently – especially when I need something mindless, cliche, but funny enough to lift up my spirits. There’s plenty of sex, hookups, and each film has at least one guy in full frontal male nudity! (Because I know that’s what many of you want to see!)
