They shouldn't have ignored the lucrative middle-eastern market! That's where the money is at.

Maybe there's a pitch for a horror sequel

Bros 2: The Roofening

A romantic comedy about gay men. The usual target audience for rom-coms is straight women. And for all virtue signaling, most straight women are absolutely disgusted by homosexual behavior in men.

It is fetishized by them, but only as a supporting role.

“Gays make the best friends!”

Because even women don’t want to be friends with women.

Disgusted isn't the right word. More like terrified.

What about yaoi? What about slash fiction? Women love that shit, fictionally at least.

That is a small amount of female weebs and female weebs are a small amount of women.

Siri, what is Yaoi?

Even South Park ripped on women's perverse desire to make every male relationship gay.

Blacks need black movies or else they can't relate. Women need woman movies or else they can't relate.

But why should normal people relate to uwu fagboys?

Slashs_cool_hat 3 points ago +3 / -0

Because these demands can only go one way

TheImpossible1 -8 points ago +3 / -11

Lack of empathy does that.

BulbasaurusThe7th 10 points ago +12 / -2

You intentionally ignored the part about black people, right? Both are equally idiotic, but you just had to. Tism can't let you not.

TheImpossible1 -7 points ago +3 / -10

I don't think it's idiotic. If you look at what women watch, men only exist as either targets of mockery or targets of the female gaze.

We're talking about the people who made 50 Shades the best selling book of all time. A book about being a whore and a gold digger, two things women will call you the next Elliot Rodger for suggesting they are.

Because it's an irrelevant distraction.

Race baiting serves the feminist agenda well, that's why they use it.

They race baited in the 1900s to push for the vote. They race baited in 2020 to stop Trump and ensure their Title IX show trials.

The more you think you're under threat from another group, the more you consider them part of yours.

They are no longer backstabbing sadistic predators pushing children to castrate themselves, they are your white women you need to protect for the future of your race.

They love that framing. It saves their asses.

I hope this decade, we hold them accountable.

History shows I am right. Feminism has always played racial divides for women's gain.

GeneralBoobs 24 points ago +24 / -0

They had to call it Bros because no one wanted to see the accurately titled Screeching Faggots.

One film that isn’t smiling is Universal and Nicholas Stoller’s high-profile Bros, the first gay romantic comedy from a major Hollywood studio (Universal has been widely lauded for taking on the project). The movie, which cost a modest $22 million to make, looks to open in fourth-place with $4.8 million from 3,350 theaters after earning $1.8 million on Friday.

Starring Billy Eichner, Bros was embraced by critics following its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival. It presently boasts a glowing 95 percent critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences agreed, giving it an A CinemaScore.

Surprise. Straight men don't watch "rom-coms", let alone one for faggots. Lesbos aren't interested and shlick-bait for straight women needs to involve straight relationships.

Straight men don't watch "rom-coms"

Not the sort that gets called a "rom-com," anyway. Give the love story a backdrop of adventure instead of urban makework and we're far more amenable.

BlueDrache 7 points ago +7 / -0

Plenty of "rom-com" in the original Indiana Jones.

MrPim 6 points ago +6 / -0

Romancing the Stone was literally Indy meets a RomCom. And wasn't entirely terrible.

voidposter 1 point ago +1 / -0

Right. Men want to see the guy save the world and get the girl. Not 90 minutes of him acting like an incompetent cuck who is inexplicably drawn to the most milquetoast made-for-cat-lady-self-insert wahmen.

Gays don't need to take their dates to the movies.

All they need is some meth and a bathroom

Why would anyone be surprised by this? I don't give a shit if they want to make a movie about gay dudes. I'm not interested in seeing it. Most other people probably wouldn't either.

By their own fucking "intersectional" logic, people need to feel "representation" to enjoy something, so if they're not "representing" 98%+ of the market, you shouldn't expect much of the market to want to see it.

That said, I'm glad it looks like it's going to completely bomb. Somehow I hadn't even heard about this one, but it looks like it got all the usual "stunning and brave" and "breaking barriers" nonsense critic talking points, so IMO it deserves every penny it loses.

“It had a good run”.

dagthegnome 7 points ago +7 / -0

Not even the gays want to see it.

LastRights 5 points ago +5 / -0

It's an IdPol vanity project for that dude who ruined Timon with his whiny voice. Not that the rest of that Lion King remake was any better.

Charlie's Angels was another IdPol vanity project.

Trailblazersfan 5 points ago +5 / -0

This is an important data point. It reflects the true demand and how it's involvement in entertainment for normal people is purely vampiric. Nobody wants it, clearly not even gay people.

-Fender- 4 points ago +4 / -0

This is the first time I hear about the existence of this movie.

Indipendepede 3 points ago +3 / -0

Not surprising; because it wasn't a bastardisation of an already beloved series, they didn't have any fans to call bigots and thus draw attention to it. Their "target audience" is also about as tiny as their box office returns.

Decrixxx 3 points ago +3 / -0

the modern audience was too busy

JiggsawCalrissian 3 points ago +3 / -0

Surprised "get it?? we're gay!!" Isn't doing better

Grumman 3 points ago +3 / -0

I'm willing to believe it might be a good movie, but it's a niche product that most people will be indifferent to at best.

tensigh 2 points ago +2 / -0

The famous line from "Brokeback Mountain" was "I wish I could quit you".

Looks like they can.

Seriously, though, a movie like this might have made waves 20 or even 10 years ago, but what exactly is new about gays in movies these days? We've seen gay people in Marvel movies and even in Star Wars.

They're gay, whoopdie do. Do you have anything else? No? Okay, move along.

Jeffery was a better gay rom-com

And was put out by Orion Pictures, a major studio in the 90's.

Constipatriot 1 point ago +1 / -0

Consider the libido of the average young male in this movie's focus group, multiply it by two and you'll understand why gays are notoriously considered sex fiends. Now they release gay porn with all talking and no porn and wonder why it tanks. A series of gay jokes is of no interest to anyone.
