TESTOSTERONE

In this same-sex romp, love contorts itself into a continent-hoping odyssey laced with intrigue. Unfortunately, Testosterone isnít as provocative as its premise or its title. The spectacle gets under way when Dean (David Sutcliffe) learns that Pablo (Antonio Sabato Jr.), his live-in-lover, has blown him off and returned to Buenos Aries. The bad news is made worse when Pabloís ball-busting mother (Sonia Braga) drops in at Deanís big art opening that evening. Despite being unable to speak a word of Spanish, Dean dashes off to Argentina, where Pablo is nowhere to be found. Dean pisses various factions off, and after a body pops up, he starts wielding a pistol.

The homo-erotic mayhem in the hands of Dean Moreton (working from James Robert Bakerís story) is so hyperbolic and vapid, it rides like a neutered castoff from the shelf of Gregg Araki (Doom Generation and The Living End). Sutcliffe is miscast, and the hunky Sabato Jr. appears on screen so seldom, their chemistry is hard to fathom. Thank goodness Braga and Jennifer Coolidge (Best in Show), as Deanís crass-mouthed confidante, are on hand to kick up the high camp ó including an uproarious wardrobe malfunction by Bragaís maniacal mamacita. (105 minutes)
