4. DVD: Hot Guys With Guns
Doug Spearman wanted his new film to feel like Lethal Weapon — if Danny Glover and Mel Gibson were better looking and ex-boyfriends. Hot Guys With Guns is indeed a worthy gay action-comedy-thriller that mixes '40s noir with '80s buddy action comedies. It follows Danny Lohman, an an actor who learns to be a private investigator in order to get a part. But after learning about a crime wave targeting Hollywood's elite (including Pip, Danny's spoiled, trust-fund ex), Danny, Pip, and Danny's investigator mentor Jimmy team up to solve the case, facing danger and drama along the way. It's a fun ride with some great insider humor and nods to film and theater history. (His name is Lohman; get the nod to the famous salesman?) Even better, it's a real rarity: a gay action movie you'll want to watch again and again. — Diane Anderson-Minshall
