    Kind of just thinking/musing out loud here...but I wish there were more "gay" films on the big screen. I know that we have had movies like Brokeback, and Milk, etc. - but I kind of think those have all been about sending some sort of message...(not that that's bad)

    I just think it would be nice to see a The Notebook/The Vow/Dear John-esque film that centered around a gay couple - made for the general public, well-written, and intended to be released in theaters.

    Who's with me?

    People aren't THAT accepting. Maybe as a minor role, or screened only at gay theaters. No guy is going to be seen at a movie that is marketed and soley revolves around a gay theme, even with his girlfriend.

    I don't think a gay-themed movie would be profitable taking in consideration that it'll be highly criticized and very few str8 people will go to see it

    Yeah, I realize that - so all we get are either smutty, poorply written films like 'Eating Out' or "message-movies" like Brokeback?

    'Shelter' was pretty good.

    I'd have to agree with Tdwag on this one. I can't imagine a major studio sinking in dollars to make a general release when the audience would be somewhat limited. It is good to see more and more shows though depicting gay characters as just everyday people and depicting gay relationships as normal. Shows like Glee and Modern family help the general culture see that we are no different. And perhaps in time we will see more gay relationships featured in generally released movies.
