"Available Men" is a Wolf Video compilation of seven supposedly "sexy short gay films." The number is correct, and they are short (ranging from 6 to 30 minutes). One doesn't even have a gay subject, and the word "sexy" has no business being in the description for at least six of the seven. I'll rate each one individually.
The compilation starts off with "Available Men", a rather amusing farce in which two gay males on a blind date are to meet at a certain hotel, at the same time that a high powered Hollywood agent is supposed to meet with an in-demand but somewhat nasty new screenwriter. You can guess the mixup, and predict the laughs, but it is rather funny and the only one of the shorts that doesn't go on too long. 4 stars out of 5.
"Straight Boys" is the story of two male college roommates, one of whom has a crush on the other. Of course, the straight best female friend of the gay boy helps him to see the light. 3 stars out of 5.
I am uncertain why I always expect more from shorts that are, by definition, short, punchy, lacking (sometimes) substance and style, and frequently leaving me with that "lost time" feeling.
Now I love Richard Ruccolo. (See All Over the Guy.) This is one of my favorite movies. But "his" short is nothing too interesting or substantial, and was disappointing to me.
Some of the shorts were entertaining, like a gay student body president who gets challenged by the new straight guy, or the serial personal ad writer. Others were entirely forgettable. Like the stop-motion gay cowboys.
My favorite short was "Irene Williams, Queen of Lincoln Road," about an elderly lady in Florida with her own sense of pride, style, and substance. Though even this short goes a little over-long, it has a sense of humanity and...
"Available Men" is a typical mixed-bag of short gay films featuring the good, the bad and the indifferent. Best of all is the title film, a very funny story about mistaken identity in which a frantic agent, an arrogant writer and two average Joe's on a blind date get paired off incorrectly. "Hello Thanks", about the trials of dating via the personal ads, is pretty good as well. It is amusing and even a bit touching at the end. "Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road", while not a gay film by any stretch of the imagination, is a rather charming film about an elderly eccentric denizen of South Beach.
Nothing earth-shattering here, but enjoyable enough overall.
