    When are you going to bring this movie to the UK?  We love Sordid Lives and Blues for Willadean.  And we will take this one to our hearts too.  Your actors are superb and scripts touching and hilarious (sometimes at the same time).  Y'll deserve whole shelves of Oscars!

    I grew up in the Southern Baptist church.  At some point in the future I think people will look back and understand that this denomination (and others) abused children by telling them Bible stories and insisting that these "moral tales" were actually fact.  That Jonah really did live in a whale, that Moses actually caused the Red Sea to part, that Noah actually put two of every species into an ark.  And that true love can ONLY be between a man and a woman.  The Christ stories are wonderful moral examples - too bad that Southern Baptists would rather condemn and judge than lead by example,

    I saw this film at the Indianapolis LGBT film festival last November.  It was so emotional, I had tears streaming down my face.  But on a lighter note, I thought the exotic dancer was very hot.

    BARF! I saw this play and I hated it ! I have noting in common with people who (to quote one character) “Got woken up by a thunder clap and are afraid it is the Rapture” People like this are what make the South such a rotten place to live. What a bunch of vermin

    another slap in the face of the believing man but then did Christ not say that the world would revile us and hate us? many, many times He did, and it is so for they have loved their sins more than they have loved righteousness and so they will have their sin and be forbid righteousness but to the believer i'll quote you Mt. 5: 10-12 Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven Blessed are you when they revile you and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil things against you, for My sake. Rejoice! And be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you God bless ye damned in doom

    I am no longer a Baptist as I don't agree with some of their doctrine. However, I did grow up in a Baptist Church and I don't remember any of this going on. Matter of fact I was raised in the deep south and not once did I ever hear anyone in my church bash gays or refer to anyone as sissies.

    When will this be out on DVD ? I've got to get it..... My very favorite films are "sordid lives" and " daddy's dying... Who's got the will?" Both are excellent , and I see this will be too! If anyone knows the release of this, please let me know!! Thank you!! Love you Del!!!

    Saw this at the LGBT Film Fest in Indy. Amazing!
  • Stella Galaxia 2013-11-20 20:29:22
    ********SPOILER ALERT******* The film festival is going on in our town, and an acquaintance friend gave us some passes.  I wanted to see the movie "Southern Baptist Sissies" because of the religious nature of it.  After seeing the trailer, and that it was a filmed play, I was not sure if I would like it.  It ended up being a funny, entertaining, yet serious movie.  The only complaint I have was at the end when the main character was fantasizing about a god that would accept gays.  That was the only part I did not like.  Why fantasize about a god at all?  Why the need for a god to feel accepted?

    Something I really wanna see!! Looks really good!!
  • Cary Paganoff 2013-09-23 15:56:51
    I just saw this last night at the Cincinnati/NKY Film Festival and I'd seen the play in Indianapolis but nothing prepared me for this. The acting is incredible, especially from the boys. Wow.. Just wow...

    I heard the Frank Decarro interview about SBS earlier this afternoon and couldn't wait to check out the trailer. Looks great! Will we be able to catch it up here in Portland?
