Movie Review by BillyBob
November 22nd, 2009

CRUISIN' FOR A BRUISIN'

When Pop-Star GEORGE MICHAEL was finally caught by undercover police in a public washroom cruising for sex, he broke down, and, like a true coward, cried like the big suck that he was.

When Movie-Hunk ROCK HUDSON became seriously ill with the AIDS Virus he went out and deliberately tried to infect as many other men as possible with his illness.

When Movie-Idol JAMES DEAN caught a dose of crabs while being a total slut in New York, he so thoughtfully brought these cute, little critters back with him to Los Angeles and caused a literal crab-infestation at MGM Studios, like you wouldn't believe.

It is estimated that approximately 30% of all the pornography that there is out there in the world is aimed specifically at homosexual males, who only make up less than 10% of the entire male population.

When this supremely ugly, brutally controversial movie CRUISING was initially released back in 1980 there was a huge, well-publicized outcry by the gay-male community against it. This cry of disapproval over CRUISING came in the form of a big public protest, loudly boycotting the movie.

The homosexuals claimed that the reason for this boycott was due to the way that their fellow queers were being depicted in CRUISING. It showed them all as pretty much having sordid, mega-promiscuous life-styles, non-stop. 'The Boys In The Band' argued that this sort of negative portrayal of homosexuality in CRUISING only represented a very small, miniscule portion of their otherwise 'pure-as-the-driven-snow' community.

Well, according to my 'been there-done that' homosexual Uncle JEETS, this saintly claim by the queers is completely untrue. And so, the real reason for this initial outcry against CRUISING was because this movie did, in fact, show homosexuals in the clearest light of day. And, since homosexuals were trying to hoodwink everyone and gain acceptance from heterosexuals they had to adamantly deny that this unsavory side of their lives actually existed in hopes that this truth wouldn't expose them for what they really were - A big bunch of sluts, one, and all.

Directed by WILLIAM FRIEDKIN, CRUISING was released 7 years after his most famous movie-project of all THE EXORCIST hit the movie-theaters. In a sense, CRUISING would be an even more horrific and shocking tale, then THE EXORCIST could ever be.

As I see it - CRUISING tells a tale that is a very-very real horrorshow of an insatiable homosexual sleaze and depravity that exists right in front of our faces to this very day. While, on the other hand, THE EXORCIST's story is merely just a vivid figment of someone's nightmarish imagination, gone straight to Hell.

And, so, in conclusion I ask you - Who really cares, in one way, or another, anyways?
