Pleasantly surprised to see this movie poster loudly proclaiming ‘Gay’ as part of its title, as I was walking past the Cathay building at the end of Orchard Road. That’s nice. It instantly put a big smile on my face.
What makes it even better is that it wasn’t located in some discreet corner, but right outside by the front entrance. In the photo below, it is the movie poster on the left. Yay, Cathay!
Wikipedia puts the synopsis of the movie as:
Matty and Michael are two best friends and virgins who vow to each other they will have sex before their senior prom. However, Matty tells Michael that he is gay, changing their quest.
The curious thing is that when I checked out the movie on IMDB (an online database for films), there’s no ‘Gay Dude’ in the title on the poster featured, just ‘Date and Switch‘. This is the same for Wikipedia, as well as for the review site rogerebert.com. So I guess that’s a different version of the poster. Of course I like the one Cathay puts up way better, haha. Also, the term ‘gay dude‘ is cute, like ‘chick flick‘ (a movie that appeals mainly to women).
