What the fuck is this racist thread, OP? What is your problem, besides being a raging racist? You’re the reason why a movie like this is necessary. Let’s not contribute to the racism of this site by using this thread. Let’s use the linked existing thread for part 2 instead.

R4 if you actually had a brain you’d see the thread is commentary on the racism in the movie. The movie makes all gay white men out to be evil, then the leads are falling head over heels for them. You’re obviously not very intelligent, as shown by your auto-response of chirping “racist!!!” at the drop of a hat.

95% on RT: Brought to life by a tremendously talented cast, the breezily entertaining Fire Island proves there are still fresh ways to update Austen.
The critics are insane & unreliable now. This movie is barely a step above an Adam Sandler debacle.

The spot-on bad reviews: With so many smart elements and such appealing performances, it's unclear why the movie occasionally embraces overused clichés and contrivances.
"Fire Island” is a mess with a few bright spots and some mildly funny jokes...
Fire Island feels hemmed in by its source material even when being loose and irreverent with it.
It still feels like less than a full meal... Fire Island doesn't quite possess enough substance to sustain itself, which might have explained the appeal of Quibi's short-form approach for this particular property.
A tasty set-up, and Fire Island should have been a rom-com smash. Instead, it’s stuck in first gear, its capable cast hampered by a dull, over-written screenplay that’s never as fun or as funny as it needs to be.

The movie is really rather boring, contrived to match an 18th century Austen novel, and completely forgettable. None of the love scenes, other than the backroom sex scenes, are believable. The drug humor is lame and the real stuff was left out. The only thing memorable is that cell phones are apparently waterproof now.

Levy, a creator whose own experiences were reflected through Schitt’s Creek, has been thrilled to see his friends tell stories that have rarely been seen in the mainstream until now.
“I know how rare it is to get the opportunity to tell this story without any interference,” he says. “I’ve been DMing with Bowen [Yang] about all the success that Fire Island has been having, and I’m just so happy for all of them.”

I'm so confused. Bowen Yang is also in Billy Eichner's "Bros." It seems that a movie is not gay enough if it doesn't have Bowen Yang in it. Bowen Yang is now officially overexposed.

Bowen is the new Dan Levy. He's overexposed right now, but soon there will be someone else to take that throne.
Still looking forward to Bros. because of Luke McFarlane. He's hot AF.

R40 it shouldn’t be hard. That British show “it’s a Sin” had some cute gay actors in it. Bomer, McFarlane, Lee Pace, there have to be more.
But Bowen and Levy do appeal to fraus and fraus are a huge segment of the population and buy tickets and watch TV. Bowen did a live performance of his podcast in NY toast weekend and the audience looked like it was a sea of white women hysterically laughing and cheering at everything he and his annoying cohort guy did. There were clips on social media of them doing the Macarena and the frauen were going WILD.

Fraus don't like sexual men with hard dicks who like to fuck. They like neutered, asexual court jesters. This movie was terrible. I am going to do an erotic, David Lynchian erotic thriller about underground escorts, bareback orgies, and snuff films taking place between Palm Springs and LA complete with non porn but non simulated fucking.
|by Anonymous||reply 46||June 23, 2022 7:52 AM|
I think fraus also like gay men who look like they could be their husbands in terms of weight and average faces but then open their mouths and have these “hilarious” personalities and access to their emotions that most straight men lack. And yes - no threat of sex.

Why do women hate sex so much anyway? Some bi guys just stay in the gay lane so they can get laid. What a lot of work!
|by Anonymous||reply 49||June 23, 2022 11:41 PM|
R49, a study found that only 28 percent of straight identifying women show a predominance of physical arousal towards men. So maybe the reason women don’t have sex with men a lot is because many women don’t actually have a strong sex response towards men, at least not from visual stimuli. But then arousal from visual stimuli is strongly associated with testosterone and women do have some testosterone; it may be other aspects of intimacy, like being touched or hugged, are more arousing coming from men, but the visual stimuli produces a stronger sexual arousal from images of women.

R52, perhaps the wish to get fucked by white men is a combination of (a) getting revenge against racist white men, and (b) proving to themselves that perhaps they were wrong about white men.

I'm not a yasss qween who's into drugs or alcohol abuse or obsessed with sex so I wouldn't fit in with a crowd of gays like that. And believe me, I tried when I was younger.
