Back to top Synopsis

Two twentysomething dudes, Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Sean William Scott), awaken one morning with no recollection of the previous night.

Then, the two dudes make a really horrific discovery: their shiggy stash is empty! Jesse and Chester embark on what for them is a holy mission: score some shiggy while trying to piece together the previous night's debauchery.

All they know for sure is that their fridge is full of pudding, Jesse's car has disappeared, and the dudes' girlfriends, the twins, are withholding "special treats" because their sucky boyfriends have forgotten their anniversary.

To make up with the girls, the Dudes have to find the anniversary gifts they bought for the occasion. But it won’t be easy ­ the goodies are in their car.

But that's only the beginning of Jesse and Chester's wild odyssey. Before the day is over, the dudes learn they possessed -and lost- a suitcase full of cash, and met a gorgeous gender-challenged stripper and six sexy, jumpsuit-clad alien women.

Now, they're caught in the middle of an intergalactic war... with the fate of the universe at stake.

Back to top Gay Interest

Stopped at a traffic light, Jesse and Chester engage in nonverbal one-upmanship with a couple in another car that indirectly acknowledges the not-so-subtle gay subtext of these wacky male-bonding movies.

The cast is full of young, cute guys and there is a transvestite stripper and a couple of leather-clad Nordic supermen.

I LIKE this movie… but, I have been razzed constantly for it! So let’s get it upfront. This film IS NOT A GAY FILM , NOT GLBTQ. Rather, it is a “buddy film”. It quite simply is a piece of Hollyweird crap that only those individuals who are “attuned” to looking for GLBTQ elements in a film seem to delight in… and while there may be many, the majority of Gay Cinema fans just ignore this offering.

While not a Gay film, per se, there is an abundance of homoeroticism in this flick! Forget the fact that the two male leads are simply gorgeous (Anderson, Kutcher), and get a bit more of a focus on the film itself. There are times when director Leiner seems to go astray.. but, he has a vision…

The DVD release (American, at least) offers full director and actor commentary… which is almost as funny as the movie itself! The director and cast fully admit the intention of homoeroticism in the film, yet, true to Hollyweird, they carry the anit-gay “umbrella”.

A zany piece of fun… the “Queer Eye” will get a lot more fun of than most! I wouldn’t recommend it on my HIGH list, but I DID buy the DVD and have no problems with my simple approval of this flick… razz me more! I don’t care!
