Grade B

Manny’s Movie Musings: “G.B.F.” stands for Gay Best Friend.  Michael J. Willett plays a gay, High School student who is still in the closet; his life is turned upside down when he is accidentally outed, and his celebrity status in school quickly rises when the top 3 “it” girls vies for his attention so that each one can claim him as a GBF (purely to increase the cool status of the girls).   Willett goes along for the ride, as the three girls give him protection from all the ignorant hate; but he risks losing who he really is in his mad scramble to be the most coveted accessory to the cool kids.  What sets “G.B.F.” apart from the typical teen comedies is the sharp, wickedly funny, one-liners that come at you non-stop.  My most memorable, movie moment is the scene when a character played by Andrea Bowen is talking about sex acts using acronyms: for example, “hj,” “bj,” and “rj.”  If you don’t know what they are, you’re too young for me to explain them!
