Crocodile Tears ★★ 1998

Gay art teacher Simon (Sod) makes a devil's bargain (literally) when he learns he's HIV-positive. Sinister Mr. Cheseboro (Salyers) offers the gift of health if Simon will become a straight stand-up comic who specializes in racist, sexist, and homophobic humor. Simon becomes a huge success but can he live with the consequences? Outrageous if heavy-handed. 84m/C VHS, DVD . Ted Sod, William Salyers, Dan Savage, Jeanne L. Klein; D: Ann Coppel; W: Ted Sod.
