Film Critic Oddly Offended By Homosexual Themes

Former Mayor Ed Koch, in his current role as movie critic, seems displeased with recent release Another Gay Movie:

Nathan Lee's review of this film in The New York Times was interesting. He wrote: "What follows is a rude, rollicking and exceedingly raunchy attempt to turn 'American Pie' into 'American Quiche.'"

"American Pie" was an extraordinarily funny, albeit raunchy, movie. It was written with intelligence and great humor and was attractive to mainstream audiences. "Another Gay Movie," however, is not good from any point of view. It is simply trash and so gross that it loses any intended humor.

Cheer up, Ed! Clearview Chelsea's showing a revival of My Own Private Idaho. Just be sure to take Bess Myerson along with you so nobody gets the wrong idea.
