DVD: Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds

In a surprising twist, I think Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds is actually a better film than the first. The first had many charms, and the story was interesting and, at times, funny. It was also the film that introduced the world to Ryan Carnes, might I say. Still, Jim Verraros annoyed me in many ways, sometimes coming off as just too much a stereotype. What a pleasant surprise that in Sloppy Seconds, Verraros is charming and believable.

There are some genuine laughs in this film, plus a side message about groups of uptight people who prey on impressionable kids starting to find out about their sexuality. Scott Vickaryous shines in his role as Jacob, trying to be the leader of a ex-gay movement. His undoing is revealing, as much as the disrobing of Marco Dapper as Troy.
