    If you love great gay flicks like Philadelphia, Brokeback Mountain, and Finding Nemo among others, Then this classic dramedy about a gay boy's party The Boys in the Band is one classic flick to remember. From the Director of The French Connection & The Exorcist. And based on the hit play by Matt Crowley.

    Forget the datedness of the film - all I can think about is the datedness of this trailer! I mean, it's almost 3 minutes of very weird cuts

    This was a great film with a great cast, but as Cliff Gorman became more prominent, it was hard NOT to think of him as Emory ! LOL

    It makes me so sad that young gays have never seen (or even heard of) this pivotal piece of cinema but can name every contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race. I'm not even that old (37) and I've got no time for modern gay culture. Give me "The Boys" over a reality show about finding the perfect pair of tucking panties any day!
