EATING OUT 2: SLOPPY SECONDS (Phillip J. Bartell, U.S.). 80 minutes. Friday (May 18), 7:30 pm, Isabel Bader. Rating: NN Rating: NN
You don't go to a movie called Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds for a thoughtful examination of the queer zeitgeist. But there should be more wit and fun in this silly story about two sparring exes, their female friends - one's a fag hag, the other's a slut - and the cornpone stud who makes them all go gaga.
The cleverest sequences involve an ex-gay support group called Coming In, but this is warmed-over material from the superior But I'm A Cheerleader. The attractive actors (including former American Idol contestant Jim Verraros) are competent, but the film has a cynical, let's-churn-it-out feel. I guess gay sequels are as formulaic as straight ones.
