BearCity (2010) directed by Douglas Langway

Set in New York's gay "bear" scene and taking a cue from the popular HBO franchise "Sex and the City," BearCity follows a tight-knit pack of friends experiencing comical mishaps, emotionally sweet yet lusty romantic encounters and a cast of colorful, diverse characters as they gear up for a big party weekend.

Director: Douglas Langway

Writers: Douglas Langway, Lawrence Ferber

Release Date: 24 October 2010 (USA)

Genres: Comedy

Taglines: Romance can be hairy

Storyline: Take the girls from "Sex and the City," inject them with large amounts of testosterone, tape fur coats to their bodies – and you have something almost as great as BearCity. In this award-winning romantic comedy from director Douglas Langway (Raising Heroes) and co-writer Lawrence Ferber, viewers are given an insider pass to a burly, tight-knit group of New York City friends who are trying to make it through life’s twisted paths and love’s absurdities without getting lost. When twinkie newbie and closet bear chaser Tyler (Joe Conti) joins the gang, he has no idea the impact his new friends will have on his life. Invited to move in with the group's very own "Yogi and Boo Boo," Fred (Brian Keane) and Brent (Stephen Guarino, "The Big Gay Sketch Show"), Tyler becomes a fast staple. As in any good romantic comedy, our hot young lead needs a love interest; insert Roger (Gerald McCullouch) the hot Casanova of muscle bears. The film oozes with sexual tension. It spills over with comic relief added by full-of-heart, "Mama-Bear" Michael (Gregory Gunter), BearCity is a prime cut of movie-beef. From society's pressure to fit into a mold, to the trials and tribulations of a long-term relationship, rediscover the importance of true friendship in your life.
