Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss ★★½ 1998 (R)

Very gay Billy (Hayes) is an aspiring arts photographer in L.A. who's looking for romance. He thinks he's got a hot prospect in hand-some-if-sexually-confused Gabriel (Rowe), a waiter/model. Billy's latest project is recreating great film romantic scenes with drag queens and he hires Gabriel to play the male lover. But it looks as if Billy is going to get his heart broken if he expects Gabriel to carry the role over into real life. Amusing feature debut for director O'Haver and a standout performance from the witty Hayes. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Sean P. Hayes, Brad Rowe, Richard Ganoung, Meredith Scott Lynn, Paul Bartel, Armando ValdesKennedy; D: Tommy O'Haver; W: Tommy O'Haver; C: Mark Mervis; M: Alan Ari Lazar.
