This is the podcast where we watch a movie from our past that had a lasting impression on our little gay lives. If we had no business watching it - we stole our parents VHS copy and watched under the cover of night. If a diva gave a rousing speech - we memorized it and lip-synced it at a talent show. Join Scott and Pete each week for a look back at the Movies That Made Us Gay!

"Just when you think it can't get any worse, you run out of cigarettes." We watched Carol (2015) with MTMUG Superstar Jackson Cooper and we'll take the train set! Cate Blanchett is giving us EVERYTHING as Carol the bored housewife/secret lesbian in 1950's New York. Rooney Mara's Therese is giving us wide-eyed innocence, even though she really knows…
 
"So, Peter, you've become a pirate." We watched Hook (1991) with MTMUG Superstar Joshua Clement and we've lost our marbles. Steve Spielberg's 1991 continuation of Peter Pan gave us iconic performances and a couple of arguably draggy character pieces. Dame Maggie Smith in Granny Wendy Drag and Dustin Hoffman in Captain Hook High Drag are at the top …
 
“It’s always a business doing pleasure with you!” We watched The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) with our friend Ben Cheaves and we need to pick up one of them Japanese sling shots. Dolly Parton and Mr. Burt Reynolds boot scoot and boogie their way across the screen in this country fried musical from the director of “9 to 5”, Colin Higgins. …
 
“No one ever knows anyone. You’re not ever gonna know me.” We watched The Rules of Attraction (2002) with MTMUG Superstar Mike Toscano and we always knew it would be like this. We’re taking another trip into Bret Easton Ellis territory with this slick entry from director Roger Avery. The cast is filled to the brim with beautiful up and comers and e…
 
“Foreplay is for sissies! Real men go in, unload, and pull out!” We watched “But I’m a Cheerleader” with our friend Zoë Secrest, and like its heroine Megan (Natasha Lyonne) we might or might not have been eating tofu and had a giant Melissa Etheridge poster in our bedrooms growing up. A staple of queer cinema of the early 00s, we love this razor sh…
 
"Libbets? What sort of a name is Libbets?" We watched The Ice Storm (1997) with our friend Stanley Jacobus and I think it's time to refill our waterbeds. This family drama is full of killer performances - Joan Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Christina Ricci own this movie. The 1970's art direction and costume design truly transports us every time we wa…
 
Dearly beloved... we watched Purple Rain (1984) with our friend Christian Turner and we need to purify ourselves in the waters or Lake Minnetonka. There never has been and never will be another like Prince Rogers Nelson and there is no other movie like Purple Rain. This movie is so bananas it has to be seen to be believed. Prince and The Revolution…
 
“What is light without dark?” We watched Legend (1985) directed by Ridley Scott and what we wouldn’t give to run around the forest hugging woodland creatures and get wine drunk with fairies. This movie is HIGH fantasy and we are here for it. Baby Tom Cruise is prancing around without any pants, Mia Sara is serving high-fashion face, face, beauty, f…
 
“Why would you say something if it’s off-camera? What point is there existing?” We watched Madonna: Truth or Dare with our friend Marlene Stang and anybody who says our show is “neat” has got to go. Part documentary, part concert film, part reality show, this revolutionary movie knocked our socks off and sparked a sexual awakening in an entire gene…
 
"Witches... All of them witches!" We watched Rosemary's Baby (1968) with our friend the very funny Muffy Bolding and this is no dream - this is really happening! We're not saying we'd make a deal with the devil but a Pre-War 3 bedroom in The Bramford on Central Park West is nothing to scoff at. We always pictured ourselves as Rosemary Woodhouse (Mi…
 
"These kids smoke better dope than I do." We watched Friday the 13th Part 2 with our friends Jackson Cooper and Pickens Barringer and the body count continues! Clocking in at a brisk 87 minutes (shorter than the length of this episode!) this quickie sequel cranks up the scares, the gore and the casual nudity - not to mention the wall-to-wall cute b…
 
"I'm gonna get my Liberace records!" We watched Misery (1990) and we still feel all oogie. From master horror author Stephen King, Misery give us absolute lunatic Annie Wilkes brought to us in an Academy Award winning performance by Kathy Bates. The ultimate super-fan, Wilkes takes obsession to new heights when she holds romance novelist Paul Sheld…
 
How’s your head? We watched Sleepy Hollow (1999) with our friend and MTMUG Superstar Billy Roach and tonight the horseman comes for you! This movie is peak Tim Burton - we’re talking dramatic American-Gothic scenery, Johnny Depp putting on a silly voice, and Lisa Marie scaring the ever loving heck out of us. Not to mention Miranda Richardson in a d…
 
"Donnie Darko. What the hell kind of name is that? It's like some sort of superhero or something." We watched Donnie Darko with MTMUG Superstar Michael Morgan and we have serious doubts about your commitment to Sparkle Motion! It's our first Jake Gyllenhaal review and this movie does not disappoint. Remember when the gays would constantly claim Jak…
 
"You're living in the past, this is the 14th century." We watched Sleeping Beauty (1959) with our friend Devin Lotfi (I Don't Want To Hear That! Podcast) and we could use some beauty sleep. The last of the Disney Classic fairy tales - until The Little Mermaid was released 30 years later. Nothing comes close to Eleanor Audley's ICONIC performance as…
 
Come on you poor unfortunate soul! We watched The Little Mermaid (1989) with our friend Allison Levitan and we want to be part of your world! If you didn't swim like a mermaid in the swimming pool after watching this movie are you even gay? This movie not only started the Disney animation renaissance, but it launched a thousand gay boys life-long m…
 
"You ruined my new jacket! Kill him A LOT!" We watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) with our friend Jacob Carrillo and we still just want to marry Christian Slater and die. Back before Sarah Michelle Gellar and the "Scooby gang" were galavanting around Sunnydale trying to close the Hellmouth, there was the Buffy movie with Kristy Swanson and the…
 
“I want brain parasites.” We watched Fight Club (1999) with our friend Drew Stanley and we want you to hit us as hard as you can. It’s our TENTH movie from 1999 which just proves it really was the best movie year ever. Not to worry - we don’t go too hard on the forensic analysis of this often misunderstood movie. We do however touch on themes of to…
 
“The biggest problem in the universe is that nobody helps each other.” We watched Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace with Star Wars superfan Nikolas Romero and we have a bad feeling about this. It’s a tale as old as time… taxation of trade routes, arguments on the senate floor, you know - kid stuff. The script may have it’s problems but we h…
 
“Well, darlin’, look out, cause my hair is comin’ down!” We watched Thelma & Louise (1991) with our friend and special Oscars correspondent Joshua Clement and we’d risk it all for a night with early 90’s Brad Pitt any day. We really get into the lore behind the making of this quintessentially American movie. From on-set spontaneous country line-dan…
 
Do you dot your "I"'s with little hearts? Thats so cute. We watched View From the Top (2003) with our friend Brad Liberti and we’re ready to fly the friendly skies. This light hearted comedy about a brassy gal who makes her way out of a tacky commuter airline and into the big leagues had a few stumbles on its way to First Class, International. It’s…
 
“He’s so handsome, just like his rewards posters.” We watched Robin Hood with the insightful Matt Baume (Matt Baume’s Culture Cruise) and oo-de-lally that sly fox had us feeling some type of way. For a family animated film this movie had gay culture down to a science; a thin and boyishly handsome scamp spends his days with his large bear companion …
 
She's got exactly four days to break up a wedding and steal the brides fella. We watched My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) with our friend Blake Knight and we suddenly have the urge to spontaneously break out into song. Hot off the heals of a gothic retread of "Frankenstein from the maid's point of view" and that musical Woody Allen movie, America's …
 
I’m a little black woman, in a big silver box! We watched Jumpin’ Jack Flash (1986) with our friend Ben Cheaves and we still can’t understand a thing Mick Jagger is singing. Whoopi Goldberg as Terry Doolittle is iconic. Her apartment, her workspace and her wardrobe are all #GOALS. Suffice it to say - we still want to be Terry when we grow up. She h…
 
It’s like Spice World for the Village People. We watched Can’t Stop the Music (1980) with our friend Jackson Cooper and we want to stay at the YMCA! Producer Allan Carr was at the top of his game after the success of Grease (1978) and the next story bursting forth was the pseudo-biography of disco’s greatest novelty act - the Village People. This m…
 
A boy's best friend is his mother. We watched Psycho (1998) directed by Gus Van Sant no we won't apologize. Hot on the heels of the success of Good Will Hunting, Gus Van Sant was given a blank check by Hollywood and he took a gamble on a shot for shot remake of the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho. Ravaged by critics and fellow filmmakers, this…
 
You chose books - I chose looks. We watched Matilda (1996) with the very funny Petey Gibson and we’ve loved this movie since we were old enough to xerox. Almost every kid feels like an outsider at some point in their lives - queer kids in particular. Matilda showed us it was ok to be a little different - but we’re still holding out for our powers. …
 
I want to lose three pounds. We watched Mean Girls (2004) with our friend Tyler Schuelke (Ep 40, Saved) and we’re not like a regular podcast… we’re a cool podcast. We tried our hardest not to sit there and just quote the movie for 90 minutes and we nearly succeeded. The script by Tina Fey from Rosalind Wiseman’s “Queen Bees and Wannabes” is damn ne…
 
What are you waiting for HUH?! We watched I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) with our friend Lex Apro and we're taking it to the grave! Suffice it to say we STAN Jennifer Love Hewitt from her days serenading us with her fellow Kids Incorporated to her attempts at pop stardom and her renaissance in hour-long network dramas. But it was her time a…
 
I didn't bring your breakfast, because you didn't eat your din-din! We watched What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) with our friend Kelly Hardy and we aren't ever gonna leave this house. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford are at the top of their game giving us high camp and we're loving every minute of it. Davis and Crawfords capitalize on their feud …
 
Do you like Huey Lewis and The News? We watched American Psycho (2000) with MTMUG superstar Mike Toscano and we have to return some videotapes. We try to get decide if the Uber-80’s tale of Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) and his descent into madness is a horror movie, a psychological thriller or a dark comedy. Ultimately its up to the viewer. Wha…
 
There's gotta be more to life than just makin out. We watched Grease 2 with the hilarious Drew Droege and we want more than the boy next door - we want hell on wheels! It’s more than just a gender swapped rehash of Grease - it gave the world one miss Michelle Marie Pfeiffer. The amount of gorgeousness when Stephanie Zinoni (Pfeiffer) and Michael Ca…
 
"I carried a watermelon." We made it to 100 episodes and for this momentous occasion we watched the 80's classic Dirty Dancing (1987) with our friend Millie De Chirico (I Saw What You Did Podcast) and Nobody puts Baby in the corner! This movie can be summed up for the gays and straights alike in two simple words: sexual awakening. Patrick Swayze is…
 
Everybody should have one talent, what's yours? We watched The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) with our friend Mike Morgan and we wouldn't change anything about this moment. Do you remember where you were when you first saw Jude Law in that bathtub? Back in 1999 seeing this kind of flagrant homoerotic imagery in a mainstream movie blew our teenage minds…
 
Kneel before Zod!! We watched Superman II (1980) with our friend and Superman expert Billy Roach and we believe a man can fly. We take a deep dive into Superman lore and really get into what makes these early superhero movies so special. Christopher Reeve is an absolute dreamboat as Superman and Margot Kidder is adorably kooky as Lois Lane. But the…
 
You're some sort of big, fat, smart-bug aren't you? We watched Starship Troopers (1997) with out friend Matthew Farris and we suddenly feel the need for a shower. This socio-political satire disguised as a shoot-em-up scifi movie is packed with hidden homo-tendencies... you just have to know where to look. The cast is so beautiful they all look lik…
 
Doesn't my body drive you wild with desire? We watched Cabaret (1972) with our friend Darren Elms and we're here for the divine decadence darling! We take a deep dive and try to find out where Sally Bowles ends and Liza Minnelli begins. Liza belts out these signature songs like such a pro we don't even care that Sally the character is an untalented…
 
We're joined by our friend Joshua Clement to talk about the Oscar nominated movies from the year 2020. This is a BONUS preview - the full episode is presented on our Patreon page: www.patreon.com/moviesthatmadeusgay The full episode is available to all tiers of Patreon membership - but THIS bonus track features our predictions who will win, who we …
 
The only "serial" I know anything about is Rice Krispies! We watched Serial Mom (1994) with our friend Ricky Diaz and you know how we hate the brown word. John Waters takes on the wholesome American family and gives us some of the most quotable lines of his catalog (are those Pussy Willows?). Kathleen Turner plays Beverly Sutphin with such a sweetn…
 
You know it’s rude to read a persons diary, it’s private! We watched Notes on a Scandal (2006) with our friend Paul from That Aged Well Podcast and sometimes we all feel like bitter old virgins. New art teacher Sheba Hart (Cate Blanchett) catches the attention of cynical “battle ax” Barbara Covett (Judy Dench). Sheba’s affair with a fifteen-year-ol…
 
Don't do anything I wouldn't do... or don't do anything I WOULD! We watched Mermaids (1990) and we're gonna get in our mermaid car and get the mermaid outta here! This movie is filled with a holy trinity of raven haired gay icons. Mrs. Flax (Cher) is the cha-cha mom of our dreams to daughters Charlotte (Winona Ryder) and Kate (Christina Ricci). Cat…
 
We needed hearts, not diamonds! We watched The Fan (1981) with the very funny Jeff Nelson and we could use a warm cup of High Point coffee! Lauren Bacall plays a Broadway actress with an obsessive fan played by Michael Biehn who may, or may not be a closet-case (spoiler alert: he totally is). A pre-Terminator (sexy as hell) Biehn spends the movie t…
 
Barbara please! We watched Mommie Dearest (1981) with the very funny Jackson Cooper and we meet "the biggest Mother of them all!" Faye Dunaway's performance as Joan Crawford is high camp, high drama and we can't look away! This movie cemented itself as a gay camp classic the minute Faye turns around and reveals Joans face in the first scene of the …
 
Nothing can scare the ever living hell out of you like an 80's kids movie. We watched Return to Oz (1985) with our friend Goldyn Gunville and we're scarred for life. Fairuza Balk is Dorothy in this Disney take on Oz and Auntie Em (Piper Laurie) is hauling her off to electro-shock therapy within the first 10 minutes of the movie. The rest of the fil…
 
We watched The Parent Trap (1961) with our friend Rufino Cabang and we're seeing double! We're not saying the original classic from the 60's is superior to the remake 90's remake but... ok yes we are. It's better. Haley Mills is delightful as twins separated by their selfish... I mean misguided recently divorced parents. How this cockamamie plan go…
 
Your mother was a woman with no common sense! We watched Party Girl (1995) with Bright Light Bright Light and we want a career in library science! Parker Posey is iconic as our hero Mary. A killer wardrobe, a perfect party apartment and connections in mid-90's NYC nightlife - she is our spirit animal. OK, she needs to work on the casual racism, sho…
 
My name is Miss Piggy, and I would like to be a high-fashion model. We watched The Great Muppet Caper (1981) with our friend Lex Apro and modeling is our destiny... we will accept nothing less. The amount of glamour in this movie is off the charts: The flawless Diana Rigg as fashion designer Lady Holiday; Miss Piggy as her put-upon receptionist wit…
 
It’s the best high school movie of the 80's with the worst prom dress committed to film. We watched Pretty in Pink (1986) with our friend Amber Shaw and we wan’t a candy machine in the boy’s restroom! John Hughes' masterpiece of the class struggle in American high schools is as timely today as it was in the consumerist 80's. Molly Ringwald's "grand…
 
We wish to Communi-CATE with the spirit. We watched What Lies Beneath (2000) and something is happening in our house! It's not too often you get two powerhouse leads sharing the screen and Robert Zemeckis made it happen with two of our most charismatic movie stars. It helps they're both easy on the eyes. Michelle Pfeiffer is everything as housewife…
 
It's the movie that changed the landscape for every sci-fi movie to come after... and launched a thousand parodies. We watched The Matrix (1999) with our friend Drew Stanley and we would definitely take the red pill. Perhaps it went over our heads at the time, but this Cyber Punk, Kung Fu, Industrial-Goth fairy tale is so jam packed with queer and …
