    Another Gay Movie 2006

    Watched 11 Oct, 2012

    Proof that the gay community has achieved true equality in the arena of god-awful embarrassingly asinine comedies. Scrapes right through the bottom of the barrel. If you're thinking of watching, abort! Abort! Avoid at all costs.

Cheri Caffaro plays Ginger, a rich girl who hooks up with the local police force to take down a prostitution/drug ring. Caffaro is really a mystery to me. As the other esteemed reviewer of this film noted, she's not terribly attractive. There's a scene early on when she's seducing a man as part of a bar game and watching her cycle through…
