Why did HDTGM gloss over the fact that a movie comprised of blatant gay male stereotypes is full of instances of those males hitting on women (especially the guy in the sequined native american costumes who kept winking at female characters, etc.)? It almost felt like they were trying to avoid some sort of censorship with a very thin veneer of heterosexuality which just came off as bizarre.
There is an imdb thread here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080492/board/thread/165102705 that sums it up well:
Yes, this is a funny, campy, hot mess of a movie. However, it really is a visualization of Hell for a homosexual male.
Imagine you're a gay man and when you die, your soul is sent to a world where gay culture and fashion and attitude are abundant. There is music, glitter, and beautiful men everywhere, but no one is actually gay. That hot guy may be wearing a tight tank top and high-cut denim shorts, but he loves the ladies. Ask him if he is gay, and he'll answer "What does that mean? What is 'gay'? No, I don't want to have sex with you, I only like women."
This movie would've made a great Twilight Zone episode...
