It didn't get it's commercial release in Canada/the USA until March of this year, so I'm including it as a 2007 release.

The Wind that Shakes the Barley is a movie from last year. Has it been released there recently?

No I work for the largest video chain store in the country. One guess. For about 7 years now. A lot of people rent wrestling titles, from 12 year old boys to 60 year old men, occassionally an older feisty lady-type, and they are popular with the Spanish/mexican population here too.

Blockbuster?

So you do work in a gay video store.

I agreed to review it. It's almost terrifying to consider, but this film is ineptly put together even by Rob Reiner's standards.

I'll wait until my list hits 25 or so before I post it.

I don't know any straight man who loves wrestling. (Maybe teenagers) Or gay men, for that matter. My great-grandmother loved watching wrestling, and would argue with anyone who suggested that it wasn't real.

It's like pro-wrestling that way.

No wonder a lot of straight young men love 300.

That being said, I hate pro-wrestling.
