Eating OutDirector: Q. Allan Brocka,
Gay man falls for straight man who is pretending to be gay man to win the heart of straight girl in this raunchy and offbeat romantic comedy. Attractive but bitchy college student Gwen (Emily Stiles) shares an apartment with her friend Marc (Ryan Carnes), a gay man with a hyperactive social life. Keeping track of Marc's lovers has given Gwen a taste for gay men, or at the very least men who look and act gay. Kyle (Jim Verraros), who is also gay, learns about Gwen's unique preference at a party also attended by his straight and newly single pal Caleb (Scott Lunsford), who wants to hook up with her. Kyle gets the bright idea that Caleb should pretend to be gay in order to attract Gwen's attention, but this plan seriously backfires when Marc develops a major crush on Caleb -- and Gwen decides they make a perfect couple. Eating Out marked the screen acting debut of Jim Verraros, who was a finalist on the 2002 season of American Idol.

This movie & Eating Out Sloppy Seconds are very funny & well worth watching or buying. Highly recommended.
One of my favorite movies of all time. The actors are expressive and the romantic ending puts a perfect finish on the film
I'm so into the story rather than the actors. The story set out to be this day to day life with these guys, but if you watch carefully you realize they are expressing themselves in the movie. I love the way they interacted with the enviroment and it was just so lovely directed. Very good film I love the title its so creative eating out, lol. Watch it with a close friend it worth watching.
The dialogue is stupid, pointless, and gross. The lead actor Scott Lunsford looks like a hunky version of Freddie Prinze Jr. but unfortunately shares Freddie's blank- stare/zero-expression/ meaningless-dialogue style of acting. Jim Verraros should never be allowed on film ever again- his acting is beyond horrible: as I watched and listened to him I kept thinking "No!...No!...NO!!!" The women are absolutely repulsive and say the most stupidly disgusting things. I feel bad for Ryan Carnes- he is a great and very talented actor and this garbage is way beneath him. Ryan, thankfully, will be the only one of this group to make it as an actor- I don't know where they found all the other horrible people. Ryan Carnes is very hot, but if you want to see him shirtless, just watch "Desperate Housewives" Seasons 1 & 2, or wait for "Surf School" to come out to theaters and DVD. There is no male nudity and the sex scenes aren't good at all. In one scene Ryan and a guy rip their shirts open, but when they disagree about kissing, the scene ends. Another scene has Ryan's character getting intimate with Scott's character, but we hear the voice of a really annoying blonde woman in the background the entire time. At the end, Jim and Ryan's characters start to kiss, and all of a sudden the movie just ends. This is supposed to be a comedy but there is absolutely nothing funny about how horrible this movie is. The acting, dialogue, characters, and story only sicken. Don't waste a penny on buying this movie. If you think you need to see all the lame (and very short) kissing scenes, they were available at youtube, and still are as far as I know.
