Hmmm.

Aren't they sheepherders? If there aren't any cows, then they aren't cowboys.

Honestly the whole "it's about gay people so it's so great" is frankly boring the crap out of me.

They really should have changed the title to Bareback Mountain.

Cro:

And if they're sheep-herders...well, it's obvious why it's a gay love story...they couldn't catch the sheep.

Peter F.:

You can just picture (pardon the pun) the following Hollywood conversation:

Producer 1: "Say, Hal. What All-American icon can we mock with a taboo or what physical disability can we exploit that'll garner us some Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination?

Producer 2: "Hmm, how about something with gays?"

Producer 1: "Like gay cops?"

Producer 2: "No, San Francisco already has those. I mean, more like the story of a gay NFL quarterbacks or a blind and gay NFL quarterback..."

Producer 1: "Who's missing both of his arms and throws with his feet..."

Producer 2: "...and wins the Super Bowl..."

Producer 1: "...and gets laid by the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad..."

Producer 2: "Excellent!....(sighing)...but not really Academy stuff...they're not big on football stories."

Producer 1: (pondering) "Oh, I got it. Gay cowboys....who tend not horses, but...but..."

Producer 2: "Dingos?"

Producer 1: "Nah, been done....I know! Sheep!"

Producer 2: "Prepare the speeches!"

Producer 1: "And be sure to thank your wife this time and not your mistrees..."

Producer 2: "Oh yeah...thanks..."

I realize I'm waaaaay out of the loop on this one...but did they get the idea from Cartman or what? I mean that was on South Park years ago, plenty of time to come up with a movie and film it and everything, of course at the time it was just a joke...or was this based on an old gay cowboy book or something? If they eat pudding in the movie I'd be looking for royalties if I were the SP fellas.

Raina:

I thought SP was just engaging in a bit of hyperbole at the time, but apparently it's a common trend. Has anyone seen it: can you comment on the lack or presence of pudding?

Now all we need is some gay versions of old musicals---oh, nevermind.

brooklynlou:

Didnt South Park have an episode spoofing film festivals where one of the movies was ablout gay cowboys eating pudding? Then we get 'Brokeback Mountain'. They also had an episode about Cartman trying to make believe he was retarded in order to win the Special Olympics and then we get "The RInger". Man Trey & Matt should sue like crazy ...

Maybe they should have named it "Rump Riders of the Range" or "Fudge Packers Rodeo" LOL

I thought this movie was suppose to be about gay cows??

There was a country song a few years back by I-don't-remember-who (Chris LeDoux maybe?) that I could've sworn started,

"Hey cowboy, get offa that cow..."

Later I discovered that last word was "couch," but for a while there I didn't know what to think.

Now that "Big & Rich" is a popular country act, I wouldn't be surprised to hear a song that really did include that lyric.

Mark L:

Regardless of the gender orientation the basic plot of this flick is one that goes over big in Hollyweird: It is better to put your selfish desires ahead of your obligations to others.

These two creeps go off, start families, have kids, then abandon those kids to find true happiness with each other. Whether you are talking about a guy and a gal doing this or two guys doing this, I find that behavior disgusting. It's just wrong.

["Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls", episode 209, August, 19th 1998]

...

Cartman: No dude, independent films are those black and white hippy movies. It's about gay cowboys eating pudding.

Wendy: No they're not. Independent films are produced outside the hollywood system. They're movies without all the glitz and glamor of Hollywood.

Cartman: Puh, well you show me one independent film that ISN'T about gay cowboys eating pudding.

...

Kyle: So how was that movie last night dude?

Stan: Aww..dude you don't even wanna know.

Cartman: It was about a bunch of gay cowboys eating pudding huh?

Stan: Yeah...pretty much.

Cartman: Yes!

...

Stan and Wendy are watching a movie about gay cowboys eating pudding

Cowboy #1: Say Tom, doya have any pudding left?

Stan tries to grab Wendy's hand

Cowboy #2: I ate all mine up silly.

Cowboy #1: Well now what do we do?

...

Cowboy #2: Why don't we explore our sexuality?

Cowboy #1: Oh good idea. Let's....

The cowboys are seen giving each other blow jobs

Stan: Aww dude I shouldn't be seeing this!

...

Wendy: Stan, I'm sorry I dragged you to all those independent films.

Stan: Well that's ok Wendy. I fogive you.

Wendy: Sometimes I forget that even though a few independent films are great, most of them suck ass.

Cartman: Yes, and I've learned something too. Being a sell out is sweet, cause you make a lot of money. And when you have money, you don't have to hang out with any poorass loosers like you guys. Screw you guys, I'm going home.

What I want to know is, does Rev. Horton Heat's "Cowboy Love" featured in the film?
"I know that us as a couple'll
cause talk but I wouldn'n mind
All them cowboys'll be pea-green w' envy
When they see his cute behind!
That's why each night by the campfire
I thank my lucky stars above
For inter-racial cowboy
Homo kinda love"

bcb0225:

I agree with Mark L, how many movies do we have out there about the evil man who leaves his wife and kids to pursue some affair, yet when two men do the same thing to pursue a homosexual relationship, people call it beautiful and romantic.

Headcase:

My basic thought about movies is that if they are good, they should appeal to their subjects. In other words cops will like a good cop movie, soldiers will like a good war movie, and cowboys will like a good western.

Why am I willing to bet a bundle that no real cowboy anywhere in the world is going to go watch this piece of crap.

Cheech and Chong would have had plenty of material from this movie. Anyone remember... "Seaman Gully you 'ave been charged with Buggery on the high seas..."

MK:

24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Just scanned the above comments. Wow! Just think how bad it's been for the gays to sit through our endless heterosexual love movies.

Ever thought of that?
