    So this is another question for my thesis. Just wondering if you do or no because my school's LGBT club is throwing a party with the theme "the Help"

    Gay men like The Devil Wears Prada. And only for the montage scene of Meryl Streep tossing her coats and purses at Anne Hathaway.

    "Where's that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday..."

    I am a gay man.
    I saw the film.
    It was okay.
    It wasn't good enough that I'd recommend it to anyone.

    And Anne Hathaway's new look (sporting great outfits) while walking in Manhattan to Madonna's "Jump" from The Confessions album.

    Andy Sachs: Chanel Boots? Yeah, I am.

    OP.

    - personally I've not felt any interest in seeing "The Help".

    - "another question for my thesis"? I think you should refine and redefine the question so it's not so broad and stereotypes all gay men.

    I loved it and my gay friends that have seen it loved it as well. I don't understand all the dislike for it! Someone who didn't like it want to explain why it sucked and was for the "brainless masses"?

    It didn't, "suck."
    The screenplay didn't make me care very much, for or against, the characters.

    Black people in the deep South, in the early 1960's, would not have been that rebellious. So, it seemed unrealistic.

    If a black woman, in the deep South, had served a shit pie to a white woman, that black woman would very likely have been killed, and no one would have been prosecuted for the murder.

    Compare this film to "Mississippi Burning," which portrays life in the South, far more realistically.

    AMoonHawk saidWhy would gay men like a movie about women
    It's a no for me


    So, according to you, we should only like movies about other men? I've seen your comments on other threads and you really seem to have a problem with women.

    I did see it, but I didn't care for it.

    Didn't like the way "the help" were so willing to gossip about their employers.
    (Their source of income.)

    I haven't seen it, but I read the book. It was enjoyable, yet somewhat racist.

    I could picture a help themed party. Dress in 60s period clothes. Instead of chairs, everyone would sit on toilet seats.
    And for the love of god, don't eat the pie!

    As an Aussie poofter, and a Bona Fide Homosexual, I don't see any correlation, to myself being the above and the movie at hand...

    Depends on how broad a populace in any number of regions in relation movies they also all do not like in order to draw a level and defer from any bias... I'd say gay men, do like "The Help". Since your LGBT club wants to go so far as to theme a party around it. I'd also like to say that gay men like 'the help' cause bartenders looks so hot in underwear serving drinks on hot summer nights as they shamelessly flirt for tips ; )

    I can't believe how one can find relevancy in this correlation. Why don't we poll how many blue-eyed people liked THE DESCENDANTS?

    well some gay men can be misogynistic.
    I dont understand why people wouldnt watch a movie about people overcoming their hurdles, particularly being gay. smh


    It's a shame, some gay men leave the realization of the hurdles in the last few minutes of the movie and never take it into their own lives... sigh*

    apparently you dont know the women in the 1960's cause you werent there. There were some who are catuois back then, but you did have some that wouldnt take a beaten laying down. Like my grandmother. So please dont about anything that you dont know :-)....btw the movie was awesome and I do recommend it to everyone
