Rambo, But Gay: VIDEO


A gay retelling of one of the most iconic macho man movies of all time. Write the filmmakers:

Sure there's blood in guts in this Rambo from Michael Serrato and Mark Byers, but in this musical version the audience is asked to reexamine what it is to be a man and what it is to be manly. This post DOMA tinkering of war veteran, John Rambo is hopefully just the first exploration of "Manly, But Gay" that Serrato and Byers get to tell.

  3. What on earth, in the hell, get's in people's heads. This sucks so bad my face feels like its inside out. In this case fu** diversity...if that's what you call it.

  4. I was prepared to hate it (with the tired connotation that gay people aren't normally masculine) but it was actually funny and reminded me of something Joss Whedon would do for fun in his back yard.

  5. I once went out on Halloween as, "Rambeau". I was a lot younger with a modicum of muscles and a plethora of hair. No one thought it was funny, so I stopped camping it up and played it straight. I wasted five razors shaving my body, three of them on my legs. Shaving my ass would have made it seven.

  8. this sucked, but since the stereotype who directed it feels he knows the "gay perspective", it's not surprising. yeah we get it: all gay guys act and talk like women. so hilarious.

  9. @ Patrick or Rick or whatever your name is--you need therapy. Badly.

  10. Wouldn't Rambo (but gay) just be the same old First Blood movie since Rambo's sexual orientation was totally irrelevant in that movie?

  11. a total riot--very nicely done!

  12. "the audience is asked to reexamine what it is to be a man and what it is to be manly."

    And what do you suppose the audience for it will be? That's right, a bunch of effeminate gay men and a few fag hags at the margins of society.

    There is no need to re-examine what it is to be a man and what it is to be manly. Pretty much all straight men know and so do all masculine gay men.

    So actually do effeminate gay men, since they worship masculine men, a sure sign of their own contempt for themselves and each other.

    This is therefore nothing but another tired exercise in displaying the deeply emotionally- and mentally-damaged condition of effeminate gay men and the culture of effeminacy that has resulted from that psychological damage......who will continue to be recognized by society as the disturbed, twisted individuals that they are.

  13. Oh, Rick, we've missed your hilariously sad, self-hating nonsense. Welcome back!

  14. Poor "Rick" has to inhabit that mind.

  15. Bravo!

  16. This video is like a walking (offensive) gay stereotype: prancing, lisping nancy boys, public restrooms with glory holes, a prison shower scene, and musical numbers. It seems set in a gay mentality of our past: promiscuity in community parks, lurid fantasies of f--king the straight guy, drag queens, Broadway show tunes.

    This is a mentality we're (thankfully, in my opinion) losing, growing out of. The last musical number showed some real talent, whoever wrote it.

  17. The last song has a melody borrowed from Rent: One Song Glory. With William Finn lurking around the edges. :)

  18. This isn't a "gay" perspective, it's the director/creator's perspective. He needs to own it. It doesn't examine anything, it just exploits stereotypes. Sure, I chuckled a couple times, but they were cheap laughs.

  19. What next?.. A Gay Superman story??..

  20. MMMMario Diaz! Love him. Folks, this is Mario Diaz! Mario. Diaz.
    (Dirty Sanchez anyone???)

  21. Embarrassingly amateur, not funny or entertaining, reinforces ancient gay stereotypes. I kept expecting to see Paula Deen serving up fried chicken and watermelon to some cheerful field hands chopping cotton.

  22. With bad writing, bad acting, dated stereotypes and throw in a sexy shirtless guy and you've instant fan following. But let's see how long this video sound bite lasts. LOL!
