The Big Gay Musical
Reviewed by: James BenefieldRead James Benefield's film review of The Big Gay Musical
There are a couple of incidental features. There's a six-minute featurette, with a smattering of interviews with the cast and crew. It's kind of fun, but skimpier than some of the underwear worn by some of the film's backing dancers - and that's pretty skimpy. There's an interview with the co-director Casper Andreas. And there's a theatrical trailer.
The big extra is the audio commentary from the writer/directors, the editor Alex Hammer and Daniel Robinson (who plays Adam). One of its benefits is that these guys are in the same room as each other, and some of their banter is pretty amusing and honest. We learn a lot of the film's inspiration is drunken or rejected from other projects and shaped for this one. The musical within the movie was actually a full musical, but failed to take off. It was chopped and changed for this.
Aside from these extras, the picture is clean and crisp and the sound is as high quality as you may want from a musical. The only thing missing are the subtitles; there'll be no singing along here.Reviewed on: 13 Jul 2010
