Okay, who's going to go out and see this movie? It's about two cowboys who are gay and are in love with each other. I think there's a love scene in it too. :shock:

LOL You guys are funny! shuamort--chick flick! Deegan, love the "bareback" comment. :lol:

I am a total gay supporter, but don't know if I'll even watch it. I am not a big moviegoer.

It's a "Dick Flick", can't say as I have any interest in it at all.

No in the least... Just have no desire to see a couple of guys making out. Doesn't scare me, or annoy me, I just personally find it distasteful is all.

It's not a chick flick. While it's true that men who pretend to be uber-macho might not like it, it's a drama (and probably the best drama since Amelie) that everyone else needs to go see.

Clearly the best movie of 2005.

I think I'll pass on this one as well.

I support gay rights, but when the crux of the movie is about a gay love story, I see it to be nothing more than a gimmick to stir controversy ie. TICKET SALES.

Oh, and a question for the ladies....

Does the idea of 2 men getting hot and sweaty appeal to you?

That or you just prefer to watch men get sweaty. LOL

Not to mention I was unaware I was uber macho because I don't have interest in this movie... why thank you....LOL

A drama revolving around romance=chick flick.

Movie summary:
The new film from Academy Award-nominated director Ang Lee. An epic love story set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two young men - a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy - who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.
Sounds like a complete chick flick to me.

Some people believe everyone needs to go to services on Sunday. You won't see me there either. I guess everyone doesn't need to be there to know they don't like it ;)

Go see KING KONG instead.

It's another one of Peter Jackson's 3 hour long epics that at least an hours worth of footage should have hit the cutting room floor.

Plenty of people being decimated and explosions and there's even an inter species love story between the giant ape and Naomi Watts.

I saw it for free so I can't complain, but I suggest you watch KING KONG over Ruptured Sphincter Mountain.

I love the responses in this thread.

Calm, I was merely yanking your chain when I accused you of being a homophobe.

Six, two men together does nothing for me; two women, however...... ;)


Maybe all you gentlemen in this thread would learn something from the love scene. :lol:

aps, hey, I'm glad you're here:2wave:

I will see this movie on dvd I am sure. Don't make it out to the movies much. Usually get railroaded into seeing something my kids want to see. Like War of the Worlds. :roll:

I'm a big fan of Ang Lee though and this movie was based on a book by an author I admire so I am sure I will pick it up when it hits the video store.

I will probably wait for it to come out on DVD as well. Somehow I doubt my husband will want to watch it.

Yeah, I don't really understand that. It doesn't bother me to see two girls together. I'm not gay (that I know of) but it just doesn't bother me.

eh, men and their sensitivities...whataya gonna do?

Aww, shucks. Thank you! I like your terminology about it not bothering you to see two chicks. I would not be able to use that phraseology. :shock:
