If you are actually gay, and I have my doubts about that, you are part of the problem. Instead of being supportive of a landmark gay movie released by Universal Studios, you are as giddy as a goose that it did not meet box office expectations.We should indeed. But we can't because it was a massive failure at the box office. Less than 4% of gay adults in this country even went to see Bros, let alone the straight romcom audiences who avoided it even more.
As of today, Sunday the 23rd, it just got cut from another 1,500 theaters this weekend and fell off a cliff to 16th place at the box office. It's behind Top Gun and Minions this weekend, and they've been out since summer.
The movie that Bros debuted with on the same day, Smile, is still at #3 this weekend for its third week in theaters. So why would any movie studio ever greenlight another gay romcom for the rest of this decade?!? Bros has probably damaged the mid-term future gay movie market by at least 50%; any movie exec worth his cocaine habit won't be greenlighting any gay comedies anytime soon. Bros and Mr. Eichner's messy and insulting marketing is responsible for that.

If it was a terrible film, maybe I would understand, but it is hysterical and wonderful and has received fantastic reviews everywhere.
And yet you keep hijacking this thread that was created to be supportive to the LGBTQ community in order to post a lot of garbage about a film that you have not even seen, and one you have declared you will not see.
Well you must have your reasons for this. I have no idea what you are attempt accomplish here with all of these posts, but as Figgy said above, “let it go”.
And as to your ridiculous assertion that this is the end of gay themed movies, another gay rom com is coming out this December from Focus Features called Spoiler Alert. You better go hide under your bed.
