The movie’s sort of an Oz-meets-Brokeback-meets-Dirty Rotten Scoundrels story (watch the trailer here) in which Carrey, a con man, meets the love of his life in prison, comes out in a big way upon his release–complete with lots of Versace shirts–and continues to be a con man.
According to someone at TLA Releasing, via Michael Musto’s blog, the movie doesn’t show anything too graphic, but it’s still scaring off every distributor who sees it, particularly the prison sex:
The scene is not shocking in the sense that any body parts are actually revealed–both actors are nude, but the way the scene is shot, no pickle is on display. The surprising part is that the ‘bottom’ is this muscle, bearish type, who is on all fours, getting a really hard pounding by Carey... I think most folks are used to seeing Ewan McGregor naked and engaging in man-on-man sex, but Carey, not so much. So more power to him for going there.
Never quick to be shocked, we at The Sword find this kind of shocking! Really, people? At this late date, could American audiences still be so scandalized by an actor playing gay? Is it just that a shot of any leading man who’s not Heath Ledger engaging in butt sex will freak out every straight man who doesn’t live in San Francisco?
Or maybe the movie just sucks…
