I had heard a lot about this film so I was looking forward to checking it out. My first impressions of the film was that it was very colourful, very camp and reminded me of ‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ in its quirkiness.

The story of the film is basically about three of the most popular girls needing a GBF to complete their status of cool. However, there is no one at the school who is ‘out’ so they go to great lengths to track down their desired conquest.

There are two boys ‘Tanner’ and his BFF ‘Brent’, who aren’t accepted by the in crowd but are as camp as Christmas. Once the three girls realize that ‘Tanner’ is gay they all want to befriend him. They compete with each over ‘Tanner’ with the aim of being the coolest girl in town (as such). But as they all get to know each other friendships develop.

There are a few familiar faces in the film, Megan Mullally from ‘Will and Grace’ who steals the prize for best scene in the film, as she watches ‘Brokeback Mountain’ in the hope of bonding with her son, #awkward.

And Natasha Lyonne  from ‘Orange is the New Black’.

It’s a fun film, with its own message at the end but on the whole it a light cheerful take on today’s youth and how they relate to gay people in America, even in this day and age and the way they deal with homophobia.
