Director Statement

Screwball comedies got me through lockdown. I don't know if laughter is the best medicine but it definitely helps. And we all need a lot of laughter right now.

With all the medical talk in the news, I was like, what if a pill made guys gay? It's so silly it should be a campy gay comedy!

And now it is!
