DOWNLOAD The Gays theme song now! (MP3)
T. S. had to overcome several musical challenges in bringing THE GAYS to life. First, he knew he wanted to have THE GAYS themselves sing as a group to show the family enjoying each other's company. That meant writing appropriately off-color new versions of such favorites as The Brady Bunch theme song and O Little Town of Bethlehem. But he also wanted to offer a musical set piece reminiscent of some of the classic show-stoppers of old Judy Garland films (Judy is one of Chris Tanner's cinema idols). So T. S. came up with a naughty revision of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas for Chris to sing to his younger gay son in a riff on Judy's rendition to Margaret O'Brien in Meet Me in St. Louis.
But perhaps the greatest challenge T. S. faced was how to introduce the opening credits with a theme song that would simultaneously convey THE GAYS' unique family values in its lyrics while offering a catchy tune redolent of those from America's popular sitcom and cartoon families of yesteryear. He eventually settled on a verse-and-refrain structure with a rhyme scheme and melody that celebrate THE GAYS' prurience and deviant sexual mores as though they were as American as mom and apple pie.
"The Gays is a thrill, hilarious, critical, insightful and inspirational film. It is rated R and not recommended for teenagers. There is some nudity involved and very vulgar language. It's also not recommended to heavily religious people because I don't think they would like to hear what The Gays had said about Gabriel! Unless you want to shock your super religious grandmother..."
"THE GAYS is, in the original sense of the word, campy to the nth degree. It is also unrelentingly and unashamedly raunchy. It's impossible not to pick up on the John Waters vibe throughout and, with Chris Tanner as its anchor, this picture may well be highly spoken of in the same circles someday."
"There is full frontal nudity and a couple of really gross moments, but they are all in fun. I can guarantee that there will be no Academy Award nominations in acting from this film. But that's great--the lousy acting makes the movie that much more fun. Personally, I loved the film and the nerve of those who had anything to do with it."
Reviews by Amos Lassen
"I can see it becoming a cult classic in twenty years. Now, there are some over the top gross scenes (like the birthing part, oh god). The film does get pornographic at a few parts, but if you like hot naked men (like I do) then you really won't mind it. It all depends on how you view those kinds of things. Other than that, it was a fun watch."
